The Latest Wedding Trend

Our aim at Coochicoo Cards is to give you your perfect wedding stationery and to do that we keep up to date with the latest #weddingtrends and introduce new products to suit. The hot trend this season is glamorous glitter and sparkle and our brides tell us they are LOVING IT! Before you dismiss the sparkly stuff as being too OTT or garish, just wait, because done right, a little glitter can give your wedding that extra level of glamour and sophistication.  Here are just some of the products we have created for you. 

Add a touch of sparkle with our Glitter Belly Band invitation, go bolder with our Glitter Pull Out Pockets, or for the ultimate in glam shine go for either our Deluxe Glitter Pull Pocket or our brand new Deluxe Glitter Pocketfold Wallet and both of these are covered in sparkle from head to toe! 

The Belly Band and Pull Out Pocket invitations are available in this massive choice of colour sparkle and can be teamed with any colour ribbon. And we can tailor the rest of your wedding stationery to match the same theme and style too including your Table Plan, Guest Book, Welcome Signs and even these beautiful glass votive candle holders which can be supplied with or without a personalise guest name tag.

Either order your samples on-line by clicking on the image you want above (and tell us your colour choice at the Paypal check-out) or drop us an email if you want something more bespoke.

5 Top Tips On Picking Wedding Favours

Why do we need to give favours to our guests you may ask, well they are the most important people in your life and you want to thank them for being part of your special day. A wedding lasts a day but memories last forever and a thoughtful and meaningful wedding favour is an extra touch to making the day memorable to your guests. There are literally 1000’s of favour ideas out there, so to help you narrow it down here are 5 top tips to help you choose the right one.

1. Fit The Venue
Is your wedding outside, on a beach, is it a festival style? Give your guests something they will find useful throughout the day. For example a cooling fan, a warming pashmina or comfy flip-flops for the ladies, sunglasses for the gents, miniature sun-creams, glow sticks and whistles, sparklers or miniature bubbles, or funky temporary tattoos.

2. Fit Your Theme
Choose favours that compliment the colour theme or style of your day. More importantly, give favours that will reflect your personality while being interesting to your guests. For example if you are going rustic then make small jars of jam or chutney. If you are going elegant then boxes or bags co-ordinated with the rest of your stationery. If fun and games is the flow of your then lottery tickets or scratch cards, gambling chips (if you are having a Casino), bingo tickets (and play a little bingo during the reception), raffle tickets (with a fab hamper as a prize) or perhaps a quiz/game for the whole table to play.

3. Keep it sweet!
Edible wedding favours are always popular. Gone are the traditional sugared almonds as we say hello to 100’s of sweet treat ideas. From chocolate hearts to creamy fudge, cookies to cupcakes. All of them can be presented in colour co-ordinating boxes or bags tied up with ribbon.

4. Something To Keep
If you want a long-term souvenir of your day for your guests give them something they can display in their homes or use again like candles, flower seeds/bulbs, lavender posies, key rings, wine glass charms or fridge magnets.

5. Make It Personal
Whatever favour you choose why not personalise it with your guests name? Not only is this an extra special touch but also gives you extra pennies in the budget as you would not need place setting cards.

You do not need to break the bank, as it is the thought that counts, and you have got bigger things to budget for. The DIY approach is not always cheaper when you factor in the materials and your time to put them together so take a look at our affordable favour range. They are available in various designs and colours to match your theme and style. We can personalise any of them with your guest’s names. If you do not see what you are looking for just contact us with your idea and we will give you a price.
