Happy Friday, Broke-Asses! It’s starting to get a little chilly in my little corner of North Texas, but that just means nights around the fire pit with good friends, good beer and good music, plus some super cute and cozy outfits. But I digress. I’ve been thinking a lot about small, fairly inexpensive ways to ultra-personalize your wedding day. From rubber stamps to complementing your sweet tooth to cake toppers and more, there are a few little extras that will ensure everyone knows whose love they’re celebrating (like they don’t already know).
Metal Letters, $40 at Fab
As much as I love vintage marquee signs, they can be time-consuming to DIY and they’re spendy af if you’re looking to buy. For a similarly industrial look without dropping a bunch of dime, these awesome metal letters from Fab get the initial (heh) point across, and are just as chic in your home after the wedding.
Rubber Stamp, $31.95 from Holmes Stamp & Sign
Holmes Stamp & Sign has a huge variety of designs for your wedding, and with the right information, you can super easily DIY your own Save the Date (this tutorial could easily be adjusted for such a project). Holmes sent me one of these stamps for my new business and I’ve loved leaving my mark in random places. Because the ink pad is integrated into the stamp design, it’s as easy as throwing the whole shebang into my bag and working on a little guerrilla branding as we wait for our biz cards. You could also use these stamps on your escort cards, menus, programs … so many options.
Cityscape Save the Date Cookie, $8 for 12 from Eleni’s New York
Oh, ya’ll. Cookies + Save the Dates? Yeah, count me in. Eleni’s New York has a pretty killer selection of cookies for any occasion, but their wedding cookies take the … cake? But really, from this cityscape design to generic couples or rings to cookies imprinted with a photo of you and your partner, these cookies are great for save the dates, wedding favors … or even thank-you cards! I love the idea of leaving them at each place setting for a little midnight snack for your guests. Also: They’re delicious.
Personalized M&Ms from My M&Ms
So, prices vary for this depending packaging and personalization, but they start around $59.99 for bulk personalized order. And y’all, they’re M&Ms with YOUR FACES on them (you can see me and my fella rocking our unicorn and T-rex Halloween onesies above). Whether you set up a candy buffet or just leave a little tin of the sweet treats at each guest’s place setting, this is a little personal something sure to leave a smile on everyone’s face.
Personalized Cake Toppers, $76 from Etsy seller zime
I’ve seen customized cake toppers that have run the gamut from classy to … um. Scary? But these little personalized peg people are just straight adorbz. I mean, look at that side-eye! The zime Etsy shop has a ton of options for customization (uh, wanna include your cat? It can be a thing). Sure, $76 might seem like a little bit of an expenditure, but this is one of those wedding keepsakes I, personally, would proudly display.
