Wedding Wednesday: Miniature Wedding Cake Replica Ornaments

Wedding Wednesday

 

Miniature Wedding Cake Replica

Today in things that make me wish I had had a wedding cake instead of wedding pies are these absolutely adorable and amazing miniature wedding cake replica ornaments from Aberrant Ornaments.

While a miniature wedding cake replica ornament would probably be tough to pull off as a pre-wedding gift (unless you know what the cake’s going to look like ahead of time), it would be a wonderful first anniversary present (or belated wedding gift). It’s also something I can envision many brides and grooms purchasing as a mini keepsake for themselves!

According to the Aberrant Ornaments website, “Each piece is hand-sculpted out of primarily polymer clay then hand painted and sealed. They are very light weight and, if handled with care, will last a lifetime!” The typical ornament stands about 4 inches tall and costs anywhere from $100-$200. While I initially thought that was a little on the pricey side, this is a true piece of art and something that will be fun to reminisce over year after year. Personally, my husband and I are trying to fill our Christmas tree each year only with ornaments that have some sort of meaning to us (for instance, we get an ornament for each new country we visit), and a miniature wedding cake replica ornament would have been perfect.

The amount of detail that goes into each ornament is simply amazing!

In order to make a miniature wedding cake replica ornament, Aberrant Ornaments just needs photos of your wedding cake, which manes this would make a great keepsake for couples both new and old! (I just thought about possibly having one of these made for my husband’s grandparents… I think they’d be thrilled to pieces.)

If you have any weddings to attend this summer it’s worth taking a peek at Joss & Main because they’ve got a sale filled with bridal shower and wedding gifts!

Isn’t that three tiered cooling rack up there genius? Around the holidays I like to bake a ton of cookies but I stop as soon as I run out of room to cool them. With a bunch of racks like that I could triple my production. :) Originally $24.99, Joss & Main has it for $18.99.

Fab Gift Idea: Personalized Pillows from One Kings Lane

I was just browsing One Kings Lane when I came across a sale of theirs containing different designs of personalized pillows. These could make a really fun wedding gift and/or shower gift!

The above image is obviously just a sketch, but it looks like these would be more couch pillows than bedroom pillows.

It’s my experience that newlyweds love seeing their names paired together, so depending on the couple this gift could be a big hit!

The pillow above costs $99.

There are a couple of different options besides the customized platter, including customized plates, serving trays, and coasters. This could truly be the perfect gift – what new bride doesn’t enjoy having her new monogram everywhere?

DIY Gift Idea: Important Dates

I saw this on Pinterest and thought it could make a great DIY gift for a bride and groom, or a DIY project for the bride and groom to complete before or after the wedding.

Come up with a fun design – maybe using the couple’s wedding colors – and list out a few important dates for the bride and groom. If you’re making this as a gift you might have to consult them for the important dates {stealthily, of course}. I can see this being a keepsake they’ll treasure forever.

Or, if you’re going to make this for yourself, let the dates be a secret between the two of you.

Fab Gift Idea: Britto Luggage

I randomly came across this amazing Britto “A New Day” Luggage Collection and fell in love. Why not gift a special bride and groom with new, fun luggage that will never get lost in the sea of black suitcases at the baggage claim? Chances are, they’ll be jetting off to their honeymoon shortly after their wedding, so why don’t you send them off in style? These Britto suitcases are not only fun and bright, but also durable. They are light-weight and hard-sided suitcases that will most certainly withstand the grind of traveling.

To Purchase: Bloomingdale’s; Cost: $200-$350

Great Wedding Gift Idea: Jonathan Adler Curve Bracket Picture Frame

True Story: I don’t like buying picture frames. I actually went out yesterday in search of a frame or too but came back empty handed. Whenever I’m at the store searching for frames everything starts to blend together and I get frame anxiety. I know, totally weird, right?

This Jonathan Adler Curve Bracket Picture Frame will certainly stand out from the pack, however. The curved shape is fantastic and it would bring emphasis to whichever photo is lucky enough to reside inside.  Put in a photo of the bride and groom and give them a gift they’ll look at for years to come!

 

To Purchase: Macy’s; Cost: $68
