First Comes Love, Then Comes Links: Ideas for Mandy

Hi, all! Anna here, stopping in with some ideas for Mandy’s wedding this fall. Mandy’s idea words were “small” (40 guests), “wine" (her venue is a winery in Niagara Falls), and “stars.” “I used to sit up and look at the stars,” says Mandy. “There are millions of them!” So in that spirit, here are some star-themed ideas.

What could be more breathtaking for an indoor reception than bringing the night sky inside? The assembly looks like it may not be for the faint of heart, but Mandy cited being a crafter, so I bet she and other DIY-loving brides would be up to the challenge!

Try “Feathered,” a pure white, or the pastel “Something Blue.” And for a night sky effect, go for “Arsenic,” a silver glitter, over “Inky,” a deep blue. Cruelty-free and vegan, OCC also sells make-up and brushes.

The blueberry and cherry fillings in the pictures would be perfect for Fourth of July next week, but for a star-themed fall wedding, stick with blueberry for a midnight sky look.

I’m seeing more and more brides finding ways for guests to reuse glasses instead of getting a new one for each drink—definitely an eco-friendly touch. And these wine charms can double as favors.

Greet guests with their name, handwritten, and a handful of stars. I love the idea of using constellation names as table numbers!

A great thank you gift for bridesmaids or any other gal (or a guy who likes to rock an awesome necklace).

Hope Mandy and other star-loving brides find some inspiration here. Wishing you all a wonderful summer, and very Happy Fourth of July!

When Anna isn’t searching the blogs, she’s writing romance stories, cooking for her husband, or freelancing as a cake decorator and floral designer.
