It’s amazing what can be customizable – virtually anything can be given your own personal touch. This lends itself perfectly to creative destination weddings and inspired gift giving. Matte Luxe, a home décor accessories company, is one such example. Matte Luxe offers bold modern designs which can all be personalized for your unique taste. The brand offers placemats, Lucite trays and melamine trays, all for your customizing pleasure.

If you’re looking for another way to personalize your destination wedding with your monogram or wedding colors, placemats for guests or decorative trays might be just the thing. There are fonts, colors, nameplate combinations and over 40 customizable graphic patterns to choose from. Personalized placemats might be fun favors for a smaller destination wedding or a custom tray might be the perfect wedding gift.

Placemats are $15 each and measure 11.5”H x 17.5”W. They are made of heavyweight, durable laminate and might not work for a super elegant destination wedding. Because they are laminated, they are a bit shiny and might be better suited for a less formal event. However, for everyday use they would certainly do the job.

Lucite trays come in to sizes – small which measures 8.5”H x 11”W x 2.75”D and retail for $99, and large which measures 11”H x 17”W x 2.75”D and retails for $129. This option by Matte Luxe would be more suitable for display at any destination wedding. It’s a chic way to display your custom monogram and could definitely be kept for years to come as a memento.

Matte Luxe also recently launched its Melamine Trays, a 12” square tray with 3.5” handles. These are perfect for party hostesses and serve a practical purpose. The tray base is offered in four colors: white, black, hot pink or apple green with all design, color, font and nameplate options available. These trays retail for $50.

If you’re a bride who wants a chic keepsake or fun favors for your guests, consider Matte Luxe. While I little pricey, they’re perfect for wedding gifts. If bought in bulk, it’s possible to get the placemats or trays at a discount price. Visit MatteLuxe.com for more information on personalized designs and custom orders.
