- So what could be included in the gift package?
- A personal welcome/thank you note
- Details can customize these to match your other wedding stationary
- A list of other guests they may know who are staying at the same hotel
- A map to the church and reception sites
- A local map
- A list of sites to see
- For the three items above, have fun with it and have a custom map created. Highlight favorite spots for you and the groom
- An event itinerary
- Sunscreen if you are on the beach
- Flipflops if you are on the beach
- Water bottles or special local beverage
- Again, Details can create labels which match your wedding stationary or incorporate your custom monogram
- Candies that are unique to the area
- Other snack items that are an area specialty or favorites of the bride and groom
For instance, what might an Appleton, Wisconsin out-of-town gift package look like? If the hotel rooms have access to a kitchenette, why not include a Jack’s Pizza? To complete the late night snack attack include bottles of Sprecher’s Root Beer and candy from Vande Walles. Tie the candy to the root beer with a pretty ribbon and a note attached that welcomes them and lets them know the pizza is in the fridge.

Do you want to create a cozy, warm environment or convey a wild, fun, entertaining feel for your event? No matter what color you decide, what does your favorite color say about you? How does it makes you feel?
Your wedding colors will greatly impact the style and ambiance of your special day. Some colors create a fun, vibrant environment while others create more romantic feel. Choosing a color palette that reflects your personality will help create the style you want at your wedding.
Here are some basic color guidelines you can use for planning your event that we compiled through studies and research.
Red - The color of the heart. Typically, red is a romantic choice when creating a wedding. This color will add a dramatic feel when being used in a wedding.
Yellow- shows heat or energy. Yellow is mostly used as an attention getter. It sparks curiosity, gives people warmth.. It is the color of hope and optimism such as spring after a long winter; it brings new life.
Brown- The brown colors show honesty and comfort. It’s used a lot as earth tones. It may remind us of being outdoors.
Pinks- Using pinks will create affectionate and romantic feel. A romantic feel can be achieved using reds & pinks together. If you blend in deeper reds it creates upscale or an elegant party.
Orange- A color that represents fall or mid summer. Brides choosing orange may enjoy excitement in their life. If you’re a spontaneous person you might choose this color.
Blue- Peaceful, pure and clean are a few words to describe this color. It is very pleasing to the eye. Using a midnight blue will create a sense of sophistication. Are you a compassionate person? Blue might be a good color choice for your wedding.
White- This color is commonly used in weddings or galas. It offers a nice base to balance other colors. White can stand for clarity, purity, and simplicity.
Black- Bold and elegant are two words to describe this color. It is an extremely powerful color. As with white, black is also a nice base to balance other colors. It’s never a trendy color. It will create ambiance by adding depth to your scheme.
Purple- A bride who chooses purple might be charming and witty. Purple often adds a sense of luxury to any color palette and can add drama if used in deeper tones. This color was the hottest color in 2010.
