What's the etiquette on showers? It feels weird to invite people to a shower who aren't invited to the wedding, but my sister wants to throw one for me.
There’s certainly something very magical about this time of year. The icy detailing outside just adds to the wonderland romance for a winter wedding and we have five seasonal favor ideas that your guests are sure to love:
Also doubling as seat assignments, these evergreen tree seedling favors are eco-friendly and symbolize the growing love that you’re celebrating. Store them in miniature burlap sacks (as seen here), Champagne flutes, or wrapped in decorated pots. Available at Nursery Men, with prices ranging from $37 for a pack of 25 to $190 for 100-pack, depending on tree variety.
Nothing is cozier than hot cocoa on a cold night, so give your guests something special to sip on in the comfort of their own home. Simple and inexpensive to DIY, however busy brides and grooms can also purchase them. Available at Half Baked for $8/jar.
If you’ve opted to wed in a winter wonderland, keep guests toasty with mini luxe cashmere hand warmers, filled with reusable heating gel packets, as favors. Available at Restoration Hardware for $10/pair (originally $20).
Take inspiration from Father Winter and give your guests snowflake-shaped soaps as a parting gift. Ranging in a variety of holiday scents such as Peppermint Sticks, Frosted Pinecone, and Alpine Snowdift with non-seasonal scents available as well, they can be custom colorized to match your theme. Available at Etsy for $2/baggie containing two soaps and personalized tag.
For those who are DIY divas, create a customized snow globe for each of your guests using glass jars and tiny trinkets. This easy-to-follow how-to from Well Worn is created using a lidded jar of choice, figurines, anti-rust sealant, clear-drying epoxy, distilled water, dash of glycerin and glitter.

The 90s may have included some pretty terrible bridesmaid dresses and a few wedding updos we would rather not repeat...but the aughts have brought about social media (thanks, Zuckerberg!), the demanding "guestzilla," and the explosion of wedding blogs, giving couples much more to worry about these days.Planning 963
My partner and I have a unique engagement story. We both identify as queer and my partner, Owen, is transgender. Although we often subscribe to what "men and women" do in relationship, we wanted to be sure that we were being very intentional about how to move forward together and which traditions felt good to us.Engagement 518
