Keep guests toasty warm with blankets

Wintery wedding couples, here's a tip for you: have a blanket station for your wedding guests! Cath and Cyrus wanted their friends and family to feel cozy during their after-reception bonfire, and offering blankets was the perfect solution.

  1. I love this idea! Where's a good place to buy them in bulk without breaking the bank? I've been wanting to do this because my wedding's in late March, so it'll probably still be a little chilly, but I also can't afford $1k on favors…

  2. You can also buy a bolt of fleece fabric, and cut it into blanket-sized bits ­čÖé

    Polar fleece doesn't need to be hemmed, and you can get really cool colours / patterns, that you may not be able to find in pre-made throws.

    It's usually about $4NZD per metre, so it's a pretty comparable price, given that the cheapest I've found throws here is about $9 each. And there is a heap more variety outside of little old New Zealand.
