Wedding Speech Betting Slips

While planning Ailbhe’s wedding we wanted to create a unique and creative alternative to the traditional Paddy Power betting slips to put on her wedding tables. Ailbhe got to work and painted a vintage betting scene and our vintage wedding speech betting slips were born!!! These proved to be a great hit at her wedding so much so that people keep asking to buy them from us and so here they are…



Wedding betting slips are the perfect ice-breaker for tables, allowing guests to bet on how long the speeches are going to last!! Guests can choose to bet on the duration of the Best Man’s Speech or the duration of the first speaker to the last word of the last speaker. Simply leave a betting slip and envelope on each table (to put all bets in). Each slip lists the ‘rules’ and has space for all guests to input their name and time. You can purchase your wedding speech betting cards here.

Charity Wedding Favours

Pretty as a Picture were delighted to be involved in the illustration & design of these pretty wedding favour cards in aid of The Alzheimer Society of Ireland.

Instead of giving traditional wedding favours such as mints and chocolates you can now donate to The Alzheimer Society of Ireland. The option of making a donation to charity in lieu of wedding favours is becoming increasingly popular with couples and guests will truly appreciate the thoughtful gesture.

Your guests can still take home a special momentum of the day as these beautiful wedding favour cards featuring a pretty forget-me-not flower illustrated by Pretty as a Picture are now available in the Alzheimer’s Society Shop.

Inside the card you can choose between 2 printed messages:
Thank you for being part of our special day.
In honour and appreciation of our guests a contribution has been made to
The Alzheimer Society of Ireland

Bride & Groom Cookie Favours

We are loving this bride & groom favour cookie idea we found on pinterest, and seems  we’re not the only ones who love our sweets as we repined it to our ‘wedding inspiration’ board and instantly had 20 repins!  Pinterest (a virtual pinboard) is great for sharing and collecting pretty and inspiring images & ideas, it is so helpful when creating inspiration boards. We came across it when a friend notified us our wedding dress portraits had been pinned. For so long now we have been copying and pasting links for images we might like to use in future, now we just repin to one of our boards, simple!

We hope to see you all pinning away, why not check out our boards to get you started
