WEDDING PROP LOVE | pastel mustaches!!! | Smitten Sticks from Le Papier Studio

Found these little gems on Etsy in a shop called Le Papier Studio.  How ADORABLE are these?!  Designed by the very creative Vana Chupp, they’re a girlified version of what has become quite the popular prop in wedding photography across the country.  Just add a little pastel to anything, and look what you get.  Heck, even mustaches can look feminine!

I don’t suspect cats will be on your guest list, but Vana included some darling pics with kitties, and there was no way I was going to leave them out.  Especially the last one in this post.  You’ll see.

They’re called Smitten Sticks, and they are just the cutest.  By the way, as you can see, it’s more than just mustaches.  You get smiling mouths, puckered lips, and what looks like the 2-D version of giving the raspberry!  Okay, yes, it looks a lot more like sticking out your tongue, but giving the raspberry is more fun so I’m gonna make believe it’s that.  Maybe it would be a good idea for a new stick?

I think these would rock any wedding.  I’m not the hugest fan of those black mustaches you see around; I don’t hate them, but I just don’t see my guests wanting to have their close-up shots be of them wearing thick, dark mustaches.  I just don’t see it.  But to each his own, am I right?  Anyway, that is precisely why I love these pastel prints; they afford guests with a fun, totally playful way to take pictures, without making them look like Tom Selleck’s or Burt Reynolds’ understudies.

If there’s one thing about these two pictures, it’s that they completely make sense.

(Moving right along) … Not to mention the fact that the props themselves function as the blast of color for the photos!  With those dark mustaches you see around, you need to select the right backdrop or sass up your duds with bursts of color.  Not the case with Smitten Sticks.

    Love these! I like the mustaches a lot, but this is the first I’ve seen with a bit of color and uniqueness to it.
