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!

Wedding Theme Inspiration – Cactus Wedding Ideas

Move over the popular pineapple, there’s a new spikey friend in town. Yes, the latest growing trend is for pretty, prickly cacti!

 

Botanic garden inspired designs have been cropping up across the homeware and fashion world this year and with it, the humble cactus has been flourishing.

 

Not only easy to look after (which is great news for those, who like me, have a distinct lack of green fingered-ness!) these thorny little lovelies sit stylishly against industrial and scandi-inspired interiors that are the homeware looks de jour.

 

Also seen dressing plenty of fashion press events (such as the Whistles menswear launch last year), you can even pick up a cacti in the House of Holland store, apparently they’re flying off the shelves.

 

These drought-loving plants are not only totally on-vogue but they would add great texture and interest to your wedding aisle, wedding tables and wedding reception displays. They also make a cute and unique wedding favour idea and due to them surviving without constant watering they could not be any more ideal for sunshiny destination weddings – there’s certainly no risk of these tough fellas wilting in the mid-day heat.

 

So pretty up your destination wedding with these barbed beauties. From neutral hues to bright and beautiful colour palettes the versatile cactus compliments any theme. Take a look at these cactus themed wedding ideas for inspiration….

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!
