Winter Wedding Favor: Dancing Socks!

I know it’s June and most people aren’t thinking of winter, but you and I both know, Mother of the Bride, that winter weddings are being planned as we speak, right? If your darling daughter has chosen a winter date for her big day, then this post is for you. Just turn the air conditioning up enough to make you shiver, and you’ll be in the mood for winter ideas in no time!

If your little bride-to-be hasn’t settled on a favor idea for her winter wedding bash, here’s an idea that might just set her feet to dancing. How about some warm and cuddly dancing socks so everyone can kick off their shoes and dance the night away in comfort? No frozen toes for your guests, right?

Grippy socks personalized with the bride’s and groom’s name and wedding date—and in the colors of the wedding, of course—are not only a fun memento from the wedding but are practical as well. Just do a google search of “personalized socks for wedding favors” or “personalized wedding socks” and you’ll find several ideas and options to choose from.

Why not pass this idea on to your daughter and see if she gets a little dance fever? Just be prepared to kick off your shoes and have fun, MOB!

Quick Tip to Dress Up Flower Girl’s Socks

6244863647_b874f808cb_z

Mother of the Bride, has your little girl turned bride given any thought yet to her flower girl’s attire? Flower girl dresses are always so sweet, but adding the right accessories can take her attire up to a whole new level of adorable.

For example, why not dress up the flower girl’s socks with darling bows in the color of her dress? The bows can be made from any kind of ribbon from your favorite craft or fabric store, but notice how in the photo above the bow is made with sheer ribbon to match the fabric style of the dress. They are then further dressed up with tiny rhinestones. That attention to detail makes for perfection, doesn’t it?

If you’re not talented at making bows (I’m not), ask around. I bet one of your friends or the bride’s friends is a whiz at it and will be happy to help. In fact, she might even offer—or be persuaded—to make other bows you may need as décor. You never know unless you ask, right?!

So check with the bride, MOB, and see what she thinks about adding this extra touch of preciousness to her flower girl’s attire. I bet she—and the flower girl—will love it!

Mother of the Bride, I’ve talked about colorful shoes for the bride and fun socks for the groom here on the blog before so why not coordinate them for extra fun?

Not only will that extra attention to detail add to the bride’s and groom’s delight in the day, it will make for a great memory and a super fun photo as well. Isn’t the shot above adorable? A bride and groom who will coordinate their shoes and socks are quite a pair (pun intended!) already, aren’t they?

So show this photo to your happy couple, MOB, and see if they are up for this kind of shoe and sock zaniness. If it fits their personalities at all, they’ll be glad to let a bit of their fun-loving spirits loose through their feet on Wedding Day. Let the fun begin!
