We are going to have people ring bells instead of blowing bubbles as we leave the church. I have been looking long and hard for a good deal on bells. I finally found some at Michaels and I bought a bunch when they had their 50% off coupon a month ago. Now, I’m starting to second guess that they might be too small.
The bells measure to an inch. From the bottom to the top. The idea I have, so to make them look sort of like this:
But the ribbon along the top, will be a bit bigger and be personalized with our names and wedding date.
Do you think an inch long bell is too small? The sound is okay, I’m just wondering if they’re too small.

@MissKit: I think they look great and it’s a cute idea. I’m wondering if the small bells will ring enough? Visually I don’t find size to be a problem, I’m thinking more acoustically. 🙂

@MissKit: The sound of many bells ringing will be just fine. I have a comment though. You called them
kissing bell favours.I wouldn`t consider something that you want to be used at the reception to be a favour.

@julies1949: I agree with that, I just called the kissing bell favours because they’re generally used as reception favours – only we’ll be using them at the church in addition to the favours at the reception.
I just thought people would have a better idea of what they are if I called them that.

@MissKit: I like the idea of using those as yall leave but I wouldnt have those as your favors.

I think the bells are really cute. Here in Canada, at weddings, these bells are often used by the guests who ring the bell everytime they want the bride and groom to kiss during the reception

@Lauraine: We plan on having bigger bells on the tables for this purpose as well. I’m also from Canada, and November has the potential to be pretty cold – we didn’t think people would like blowing bubbles.
@angiemk47: They won’t be the favours that people get at the reception, no. But we’re going to make them up such that they CAN be reused as a Christmas tree ornament. (So kind of like a favour as well, but people don’t need to think of it that way.)
