    This one isn’t exactly DIY but it can be very personal. It’s funny how scents can trigger memories. I am an Independent Scentsy Consultant. We have candle warmers and amazingly scented wax. A perfect and personalized gift for your bridesmaids! Do you have a traditional coffee date with one of your bridesmaids? Give them a warmer with Perk Me Up wax and Apple Pie wax and they’ll think of you each time their house is filled with that amazing scent. Did you go on an incredible beach vacation with one of your bridesmaids? Present a beautiful warmer with some of our amazing tropical scents and help them remember that “take to the grave” story that only the two of you know about!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
