    Back when I was planning our wedding I googled our venue, Moon Dance Villas in Negril, Jamaica, and came across a wedding featured on Style Me Pretty where the couple was married under a tree on the beach. They hung framed photos as decor. Using this wedding as inspiration, I decided that I wanted to hang wind chimes from the tree to use as escort cards. The chimes served as decor, the escort "cards" and as one of the favors for our guests. All we had to was put the table number and name on a little paper flag we made and put a personalized sticker with our names and the wedding date on the boxes the chimes shipped in. They made it to/from Jamaica in the original shipping. The website is: http://www.theweddingdept.com/


    We were pretty happy with how it all turned out. Here are some photos for anyone looking for chimes as favors:

      I forgot to mention that the owners, Tom and Phyllis Roberts, were super nice to work with. Very responsive and attentive, things all brides like! You can email Tom at: fivecedars1@gmail.com.

        What a cute and unique idea! I am sure you heard the chimes during the ceremony with the breeze! :)

          Lol. The guests may have heard them, but we were totally in our own world. Actually, we just got the DVD and you can hear them. It's a nice background sound that added to the romantic feel of the beach wedding.

            Thanks Allie! I think they'd look awesome if they were hung from the chuppa!! There are some other styles on the website depending on what you're interested in and the tops can be customized with your names and wedding date or a saying, etc. I was really impressed with the service and the packaging. Like I said, they made it to Jamaica and back without a scratch.


            Happy planning!!!
