If you’re like me then hearing that a new design twist has been applied to a wedding staple is always reason to perk up and pay attention. Tradition is a lovely thing but the last thing anyone wants, especially for their wedding, is a repeat of what someone else had. As far as I’m concerned, there’s room for personality and customization in every detail of a couple’s wedding day. It’s pretty much a given that your decor, florals, stationery and even your favors will be tailored to your personal taste and style. But why stop there?! I say take your event to the next level and personalize every accessory making an appearance at your wedding.
To get your creative juices flowing, in today’s product showcase I’m saying farewell to the traditional concept of a guest book and saying hello to the ultra personalized alternative, the Wedding Wishing Well. Keeping with the same meaningful keepsake concept that a traditional book gives you, with a Wishing Well you not only get a unique design but it also comes with the added bonus of playing double duty as a great decorative piece for your home after your big day. It’s a win win situation really! For some visual reference (and eye candy), here are my top Wishing Well picks, all Weddingstar exclusives.
For the Love of Travel – The Mini Suitcase
Ideal for the Wanderlust obsessed, or for the vintage lover, the appeal of this guest book alternative is all in its authentic and pretty details. Faux leather bound edges, a vintage liner and a luggage tag that can be personalized with your initials, come together as the perfect defining accents for this piece. The coordinating novel paper airplane stationery offers up a sweet finishing touch. And even if you favor a traditional guest book concept, the suitcase can be used a pretty little decorative accent for any travel inspired wedding theme.
A Touch of Country – The Country Charm Wooden Wish Box
Let’s call this one rustic country gone modern! Country in its concept and modern in its design, this charming box comes complete with unique features including a white wash finish, metal mesh interior, a sweet little love note and a glass front that can be personalized. Whether used with the coordinating miniature scroll stationery or your own personal custom cards, this option is certain to find a permanent spot in your home after your wedding day. Keep complete with the wishes and display as a decorative accent, or repurpose for something new, like a kitchen accent that holds recipes.
For the Modern Bride – Cubist Laser Cut Wooden Box
If you consider yourself to be a modern bride, an eco-chic bride, or simply one that’s looking to incorporate unique intricate details into her wedding accessories, this one’s for you. With its key feature a sliding front panel in a distinct laser cut design, there’s no getting more detailed than this! Once closed the discrete look lends itself perfectly to act as home decor. To personalize the piece add your initials and a meaningful message, and complete the ‘day of’ look with the coordinating laser embossed stationery.
