Mason Jars are great with the vintage and rustic wedding themes that are so in trend at the moment.
You can make beautiful centerpieces, candle holders, lanterns, wedding favors, hang them from trees for decoration and much more…

Cupcakes Cupcakes wedding Umbria Wedding cupcakes

Whether you’re searching for something out of the norm or are having a more casual wedding, cupcakes are a great alternative to a traditional wedding cake.

Cupcakes are a great wedding idea because they are versatile, come in different colors and flavors and they will add a special fun touch to your wedding.

You can arrange them as you want, as a centerpiece, as wedding favors or using different sizes, heights, types and colors of stands to create a tired cake of cupcakes. They look wonderful and they can become the desert so every guest gets their own piece of the special day.

If you want to do the traditional “cut the cake” you can request a small wedding cake to be placed on top of the stand, which allows you to do the traditional cutting of the cake.

Wedding cupcakes can also easily match any wedding theme and be adorned with trendy decorations.

Cupcakes tend to lend themselves to a much more casual wedding, while a traditional cake is generally preferred for a more elegant event.

Customized wine bottles as wedding favors

Nothing makes a wedding day more magical than having some personal touches to the wedding.

Here’s an idea for unique wedding favors for those couples that are wine lovers and want wine to be an important part of the wedding.

Umbria region is renowned for many great wines and it’s possible to request small bottles with no label on the front of the bottle where you can put your own customized label.

Your personalized label can include your names, the date of your wedding, a picture, a thank you note, a poem and can also be made in the same style of your wedding invitations, table names, name tags etc… there is virtually no limit on what you can write on it.

This wedding favor is also a great option if you choose a wine themed wedding, where you could also use corks for the table name holder and the name tags.

Since most likely your wedding party will include also children, you can purchase wine bottles and fill those with M&M’s or other small candies.

The same wine bottle labels could also be used to create a unique table plan with wine bottles hanging from a tree for example or set on a table.

Above are some pictures of customized wine bottles at a wedding held last week close to Todi in Umbria, Italy, with bottles of the “Scacciadiavoli” winery.
