I am so pleased to finally announce that My Darling Heart’s second collection, Love Story, is now available. Love Story is a collection full of sweet and charming favours as well as chic wedding decor pieces, made especially for the stylish bride who dreams of a wedding filled with delightful handmade details. I have so many favourites in this collection and I’m sure you will as well! You can shop the collection now in My Darling Heart’s Etsy store
I love the idea of giving vintage-style handkerchiefs as wedding favours, and if you want to add a few vintage-inspired details into your wedding but don’t want to go overboard then these little hankies are perfect and oh so sweet. I’ve been playing around with some favour designs which incorporate handkerchiefs and this is my favourite. It’s a two-fold gift for your wedding guests, as they get a box of sweet treats as well as a pretty vintage-style hankie – a lovely keepsake to remind them of your wedding day.
If you’ve ever needed to travel a long (or even a short!) distance to attend a wedding you’ll know how delightful it is to find a little bag of goodies in your hotel room – they are one of the really thoughtful little details you can include in your guest’s ‘wedding experience’, and you guests will love you for it!
Your out of town guest bags can include goodies like bottled water, fresh fruit, mini champagne bottles, gourmet teas, handmade chocolates and mini jars of honey or jam. Including locally made items or produce that is famous in that particular city or area is extra thoughtful, and popping in some homebaked goods like banana bread, muffins or tarts are a gorgeous personal touch.
And, of course, how you package and present your carefully selected goodies is extremely important! Small picnic or wicker baskets are perfect for a couple’s gift pack, and mini berry baskets work well for individual gift packs. Kraft paper bags and boxes are also great as they can be prettied up with a cheerful grosgrain ribbon and patterned waxed paper. A personalised handwritten notecard with a few words of welcome to your guests is the finishing touch, and will leave them wondering what other delights await them at your wedding!

Hello friends! I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be here writing the very first blog post for My Darling Heart! I’ve always been someone who thinks that giving truly beautiful & thoughtful presents to the people that you love is very important, and the ultimate occasion to thank the ones you love for a lifetime of support, encouragement and for making you who you are is your wedding day. When couples are planning their day it doesn’t take long to find out that there are quite limited options for truly gorgeous wedding favours available in Australia! With this in mind My Darling Heart was born – our emphasis is on creating original designs and is also, above all, on handmade. We are dedicated to creating beautifully bespoke wedding favours for couples who believe that thanking their guests in style is one of the most important parts of the day. You won’t find any mass-produced items here – our favours are made to order so that you can be sure that each has been individually crafted to perfection for your guests.
Our first range, Some Enchanted Evening, is full of delightful options for your wedding favours. To learn more about the range, please visit here. There are also many options for yummy fillers such as macarons, heart cookies, mini cupcakes, cakepops, rock candy, popcorn, Love Hearts & Jelly Bellys, as well as traditional favourites like sugared almonds & chocolate hearts. We have a whole page dedicated to the delicious things you can fill up your favours with – please visit here for more details. Our Some Enchanted Evening range will be launching in our Etsy shop in a few short days…
Until next time,
