I just checked in with my month board on another site and people were talkinga bout “tears of joy” packets. I realized that I had never heard of such things before joining that site. The same goes with door hangers (hangers for hotels that say “Do not disturb, we are getting ready for ____ & ___’s wedding”).
Just for fun, I’m wondering what details or projects you wouldn’t have known about if you hadn’t read about them on the wedding message boards.
I guess I’ve started the list…
- tears of joy packets
- door hangers for guest hotel rooms
- personalized hangers (which I LOVE!)

“I Do” stickers on the soles of the bride’s shoes. And also Save the Dates. I’ve only gotten one ever, and I was surprised when I got that one because nobody else had ever sent me one for their wedding before. I don’t think they’re done a lot where I’m from, but wedding boards have you thinking everyone does them! (I didn’t do them either.)

That reminds me…the sticks with the ribbons on the end. I never saw those before.

I must admit that many of the small town/rural weddings in the midwest, or atleast my area, are less likely to have many of the trendy extras found in other areas, so a LOT of things on this blog I’m seeing for the first time after having been to a few weddings.
-save the dates
-(yay) flags / ribbon wands
-ampersand bride/groom chair signs
-i do bride shoe stickers
really a lot of other things too that i just can’t think of right now…

Definitely personalized bridesmaid and bride hangers. I never heard of that until reading stuff on the bee. I got my inspiration from a fellow bee, and I LOVE how they turned out! Everyone is going to be impressed because none of my girls have heard of that idea until I told them!

-Fake flower weddings (nothing against them, I just didn’t know people did that and I think its awesome!)
-Button Bouquets/ Brooch Bouquets (both very cool)

Had I not joined a wedding board, I wouldn’t have known about:
- Save the dates
- Send off sparklers
- DIY anything
- Out of Town baskets
- Bathroom baskets
- Tears of Joy packets
- Programs other than a folded sheet of paper
- Card boxes
- Place cards, Escort cards, Seating Chart
- Cupcakes instead of wedding cake
That’s all I can think of right now.

Oh man. So many things. But projects, specifically, I wouldn’t know about:
– Personalized hangers
– The different favor ideas out there
– I Do stickers on shoes
– Faux flower arrangements/bouquets (which are gorgeous, btw!)
– Special Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts/Parent gifts
I think that’s all for projects. When it comes to planning , the Bee has helped me with almost everything.
