The Quest for Wedding Favors

Hello, Brides!

The weather is spectacular and I’m on a quest to find (or create) captivating guest favors – without breaking the bank  :)!  Favors are a personal “Thank you” from the newly married couple to all the guests for sharing their day. In choosing, you will find a vast array of candies, trinkets, chocolates and candles    to fit all budgets.  

Today, I’ll share some unique finds and ideas that your guests will treasure for months after your wedding day!

                               CREATIVE…
         It doesn’t feel like work when your friends help!

  • The Cookie Jar: 
    Layer dry ingredients for sugar or butter cookies in a jar or container (w/ lid) and tie with an organza ribbon. Create labels to include your names and wedding date.
     
  • Alpha Cookies:
    Purchase alphabet cookie cutters, 4” – 5” in height for the couple’s initials. Roll dough to desired thickness, and cut an equal number of initials. Bake and cool the cookies. You can decorate with icing and, using a pastry bag/tip, outline the cookie in your wedding colors. Insert 2-initials in a cellophane bag, cinch with coordinating tulle or ribbon.
     
  • Mugs with Tea or Coffee
    Purchase glass or plastic (microwaveable) mugs. Fill ½ the mug with      “frou-frou” paper. Top off with a few tea and/or coffee sachets, biscotti      or flavored swirl spoons, insert cup into cellophane bag and tie with ribbon.  
     
                                   FINDS…
  • Godiva:Â??
    This crème de la crème of chocolate retailers create a wonderful selection of wedding favors, pre-boxed, with your choice of box and ribbon colors.
     
  • Glass Table Coasters:
    On-line merchants offer tremendous discounts on large orders (100+) of coasters or similar items. The coaster sets are pre-wrapped and worded with a wedding theme, such as “LOVE” or “Fall in Love”.
     
  • Flowers Seeds:
    With every marriage, a seed is planted that, when given kindness and understanding, will grow and blossom into enduring love. Give your guests a commemorative symbol of how “Love Grows” with a collection of blossoming wild flowers or herbs.

These are just a few examples, but my quest is endless as I search, find, create and taste test 🙂 wedding favors.

That’s my post for today but please submit your questions regarding favors or any aspect of your wedding plans. 

We promise to respond within 24-hours.
