For guests, wedding season seems far away. For brides-to-be, wedding planning season is in full swing. Most weddings take place in the summer months, and February through April are prime for picking the finishing touches for your special day. Rustic weddings have become more popular over the last few years, and the muslin trend is expected to continue this wedding season. Here are some ways you can incorporate muslin bags in favors and décor.
- Custom stamped bags of birdseed. A favorite wedding tradition is showering newlyweds in birdseed. This symbolic tradition has potential to be modernized, and using a muslin bag is a great way to do that. Muslin bags are completely customizable to your wedding day, and we like the idea of making the bags personal stamping the bags with your wedding hashtag. A cotton bag full of birdseed is the perfect place to incorporate this modern trend into lasting traditions. Your guests can take the bags home to remember your special day and all the memories created.
- Give back to your bridesmaids. Your bridal party will offer support throughout the rest of your planning process and of course, on your wedding day. Typically, brides will have special favors for their bridesmaids. Fill muslin bags with beauty products for personal, memorable gifts that show how much you appreciate your girls.
- Decorate your centerpieces with a touch of muslin. Textiles can make your place settings stand out. More brides are stepping away from traditionally opulent tables, instead opting for more casual receptions. The off-white of muslin will compliment any color scheme and contrasts well with burlap, another common fabric in rustic weddings made popular by Pinterest. One of our favorite ways you can incorporate our bags is by wrapping them around glass centerpieces.
- Design take-home bags of candy for your guests. Chocolate kisses and candy-coated chocolates are favorites to go in wedding swag bags. You can order custom candy to match the theme of your wedding, or you can customize the bag instead. Finish off the bags with handwritten thank you notes, and you’ll have an easy but thoughtful way to show appreciation to your loved ones who attended.
We know wedding planning can be stressful, but it should be fun, too. These are just a few of our favorite ideas for adding a touch of rusting muslin to your wedding. For more ideas like this, head over our Pinterest board dedicated to weddings.
