Maracas Destination Wedding Favors 2

Maracas are a pretty percussion instrument that originated in Latin America. They tend to be made in bright celebratory colours (although you can have them custom made to perfectly match your wedding theme) and they certainly add a fiesta flair to a destination wedding!

 

Personalised maracas would make unique wedding favours for your guests to have fun with on your wedding day and to take away as a memento. Give your guests their maracas at the wedding ceremony and ask them to shake them wildly when you and your groom have your first kiss! Or brighten up your wedding tables with your colourful maracas as part of each guest’s table place setting.

 

Buy these marvellous musical favours online before you jet off to your abroad wedding or purchase them once you arrive…but only if you’ve already been on a recce to your wedding location and you know for certain that you can pick them up there!

Cactus Theme

Leather Cactus Pouch £30.06 – Amelie Mancini at Etsy

 

Whilst researching for last week’s Cactus Wedding Theme Ideas feature I discovered the amazing print designer Amelie Mancini and her Etsy shop.

 

Amelie’s patterns show her love for the botanical realm – cacti and ferns in particular. Yes, the colourful cactus is taking over the design world and you won’t be able to resist the prickly prints in this collection!

 

These cute cactus inspired ideas would make lovely destination wedding thank you gifts and the pretty pouches would make perfect make up bags for destination brides-to-be or bridesmaids.

 

Do browse around the Amelie Mancini Etsy shop for yourself as there’s plenty more gorgeous styles to take a peek at….

These beautiful ceramic tile coasters are ‘more then just coasters’ they are ‘little squares of happiness’ says their maker Tilissimo at Etsy, and I would wholeheartedly agree!

 

There are so many delightful styles to choose from, so be sure to take a peek at the Tilissimo at Etsy shop and browse the full collection!

 

I love the travel themed tiles (of course) but I think that they would all make great wedding presents or thank you gifts or they could be used to decorate your wedding tables, one for each guest, to be taken home from your destination wedding as a favour. They would brighten your wedding tables or continue your travel theme and make unusual gifts. The customised number tiles could also be used to display your wedding tables numbers.

 

So if you’ve taken to these tiles as much as me, you’ll be picking up a set for your home, for gifts and for your destination wedding!
