Fabulous Fall Wedding Favors

Even though it's still rather warm here in Texas, this Saturday marks the first day of Fall. To help you turn your thoughts toward cooler times and warmer colors, we want to share some super-fun and yes, fabulous, Fall-inspired favor ideas with you.

Fall is a wonderful time of year for several fruits. Who doesn't love apples, especially when they are covered in caramel or chocolate or nuts or whatever else your hearts (and taste buds!) desire?! And they are so pretty, aren't they?!
Cellophane bags make perfect packaging for these treats!

Get creative with your presentation of these sweet treats!

Another way we enjoy fruit in the fall is in delicious pies!!! Look at these darling minis, perfect for one or two people to delight in.
Enlist your baking friends to help you make these cuties during a pie party or talk with your bakery.

Another fruit perfectly in season during Autumn is the pear! Juicy and sweet, pears can be a cute option for favors.
Put several pears in a bag for a generous seasonal favor.
They are equally as impressive as singles when wrapped in customized tissue.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, fresh and fragrant herbs make another wonderful favor inspiration.
These petite pots of various fresh herbs serve double duty as escort "cards".
Herb-scented sea salt is an impressive DIY favor project requiring little effort!
And we are always suckers for both the lovely and the practical!

Along the same line as herbs, tiny plants make great favors, as well.
Using the potted favor as an escort or place card makes these simple and elegant plants well worth the cost.

With promises that evening temps will soon be dropping low enough to consider lighting up a bonfire, we will leave you with this final sweet treat, perfect for a fall favor that will melt your guests' hearts: s'mores kits!
Cute glassine bags filled with graham crackers, chocolate squares and marshmallows
invite your guests to remember you again later as they make s'mores by a fire.
Coming up with creative seasonal ideas for your wedding favors can be fun and easy. Just brainstorm about your favorite memories of fall and you are sure to dream up all kinds of fabulous favors that will let your guests know how much you appreciate them helping you make new memories on your wedding day! Happy planning!

New Fall Bridal Gowns Pouring In

We don't know about you, but the snap in the air gets us so excited for fall! But even more than cooler weather, what gets us pumped for the season is the influx of all of our gorgeous new fall bridal gowns! We've been trying to post photos of each style as they come in on our Facebook page, but we thought we'd share a few of our favorites here as well. Feast your eyes on these beauties!
We know we showed this stunner a few weeks back, but it deserves a second shout-out because it is soooo fabulous! Here is another incredible, over-the-top wedding gown from one of our new designers, YSA Makino.
So dramatic, right?! We are also excited about another new designer we picked up during New York bridal week: Victor Harper.
Isn't this gown just so glamorous?! Yes, we love our new designers, but we have some incredible gowns from some of our wonderful "old" friends, such as this stunning vintage style gown by the incomparable Claire Pettibone.
This beautiful lace gown is so romantic! We especially love it paired with a super-hot cap veil.
And we would be remiss to not show you a few gowns from the JLM Couture family. Look at this gorgeous Lazaro!
These photos are really nice and the gown looks pretty, but you cannot imagine how much more incredible this gown looks in person! You simply must come in and see it for yourself! And we love this fresh and sassy gown from Hayley Paige.
Oh, those straps!!! This gown is so flirty! See these and all of the other new styles coming in weekly at our Bridal Salon at Stardust on our Facebook page.

Call 972.781.1619 now for your appointment to come into our lovely Stardust Bridal Salon to find your dream wedding gown! It just might be one of these beautiful styles!
