Did you know Oh, Honestly has a small studio space in Downtown Martinez?! We do! I’m stoked to create seasonal mini sessions all year long. Valentine’s Day was up first for 2019. We had a blast celebrating with a Valentine’s Day Balloon Party!
Looking to throw your own balloon party for Valentine’s Day?! Party City was my go-to for this mini session. Get yourself some cute Conversation Heart Balloons, Red & White Heart Balloons, Mini Red Balloons & I couldn’t have survived it without a handheld balloon pump! Crepe paper is the best for oversized streamers which you can find on Amazon: Crepe Paper Sheets. If you’re unsure how to cut it up, check out one of my favorite’s Oh, Happy Day! for a DIY. Do the same with some Kraft Wrapping Paper & you’re set!
After your wedding band has taken their final bow, and the glowing sparklers from your grand farewell have sizzled into the night, your wedding guests are left with their memories, a few too many drinks in their bellies, the photos they remembered to take before their phone died, the bag of wedding candy they smuggled out in their purse, and… the wedding favor.
As a wedding photographer, I’ve seen it all; the gift table that looks more like a souvenir shop than a pile of timeless tokens of everlasting love, to overpriced gift bags that are impressive, but lack universality and still end up left behind on a sticky dance floor.
For a meaningful token of gratitude that reminds your guests of the important role they play in your life, I urge you to consider these one-of-a-kind handmade leather goods!
GIFTS FOR YOUR WEDDING GUESTS
These are the people that you chose to invite to celebrate with you on your big day. They are friends, family, and a few people you invited out of guilt. The gifts you give should be classy, universal, and cost-effective.
KEYCHAIN ESCORT BOARD
This is a super fun and photogenic way to combine your seating chart with your wedding favor. Here’s a photo of the board we made for our wedding!
We arranged our board alphabetically. Guests were easily able to find their name, then their table number with the attached paper tag. They were left with an amazing favor that, to this day, we still get compliments & thanks about!
LEATHER COASTER SETS
Give your wedding guests coasters they’ll want to use, and put the ever-looming “How many times do I have to tell you to use a coaster?!” dispute to rest. #respectthewood. Upgrade the experience by customizing the coasters with their names to mark their seat at dinner!
KEYCHAIN WEDDING FAVOR
Want a more simple route? Easily add the wedding favor to your guests place setting! Customize the keychains however you see fit. Initials? Nailed it. Funny nicknames? Yes, please.
In my opinion, leather is the perfect addition to any wedding, and the perfect medium for gifts your wedding guests won’t throw away.
Memories (and hangovers) fade, but a well-thought-out, meaningful and beautiful handmade leather wedding favor withstands the test of time.
