Couples won’t be limiting gorgeous script to their invitations for long. Now, they’ve invited artisans to make custom script creations for guests on the spot, and each one is unique. Whatever you allow the artist to write on can double as favors.

Instagram instant printers.
You’ve heard of couple’s hashtags, where a couple blends their names and asks guests to use the new moniker — think: #codyandjanaforever— when they post social media content about their wedding. Now, photo printers are available to rent that automatically print your Instagram images as soon as the hashtag is used. It makes for a fun favor and piece of entertainment. #Socool.
