Mekala recently launched a new venture called Tie that Binds where you can purchase the cute label for these socks. Her new adventure is all about details, all about creating a wedding brand that you can thread through every element of your day. Definitely worth a visit.

And here are the step-by-step instructions for the Groom's Socks Gift...

Your groom's socks for the wedding
Brown paper / any paper (I used a paper grocery sack!)
Printer and DIY Label
Sticker Paper

Step 1: cut paper strip about 10 inches long and 3 inches wide. Fold into a loop and staple. To form the square look of the paper, fit around socks and crease.

Step 2: Fold socks in half and loop a bow of ribbon at the fold. Then slip the socks into the paper loop

Step 3: Print label on sticker paper, cut out, and attach to brown paper strip.

Step 4: Place them as a surprise! He'll remember your lighthearted-ness on the big day for years to come.

I love the idea of mixing it up with some really fun, graphic socks (that your photographer can have a field day with) for all of the boys!
