Delicious Candy Buffets From Dooby Design Group

So, in my quest to satisfy my sweet tooth through eye candy alone ... my thoughts turned to candy buffets. And I headed straight to the Dooby Design Group website because I knew I had seen some incredible displays!

Love this next one. Love all of them actually, but this one is especially sweet because the bride and groom really looked to their own lives to find favors that they could make and share with their guests. From the bride...My name is Trish and my fiancé is Luke. and we came up with an idea to do a seed packet and matching pot for our wedding favor. He is an assistant superintendent at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Last summer they held the PGA championship at...

DIY: Photo Coasters

These are really similar to the coasters that we featured just a bit ago...but a more personal approach! Such a great gift for those that love you! From the bride...Custom Photo coasters are a great favor for any size wedding. Depending on your budget you can choose how many coasters you’d like to include. They are environmentally friendly because your guests will re-use them in their home for years on end, rather than throwing them away, like so many favors. If you have a photo booth...

DIY Project: Photo Books

Our next DIY is just too cute. They are perfect for really meaningful bridesmaids gifts, too which I love. Plus, the bride has a great way to cut down the labor involved if you want to make a photo book for each guest. So personal, so sweet. From the lovely bride...instead of calling each girl on the phone to invite her to be part of my big day, I wanted to find a way to show her how much she means to me and why I want her to be a part of my wedding.  So, I collected photos of me with...
