Fave Wedding Favors

Recommended Posts

We did cd's and wrapped them up all pretty. We had labels made with our wedding site as the background and our names w/the song titles.

 

Every song was one played at the wedding so the idea was that when people listen to them it will remind them of the day.

So the place card says Mr. and Mrs. Smith Jamaican Me Crazy Table and on the back of the place card is the recipe for the Jamican Me Crazy Cocktail and it's tied to a bottle of Jamaican Rum. I am buying the rum once we get there. I made the table signs and put them in 5x7 picture frames. This idea could be duplicated with small bottles of tequila and names of margaritas.
I love this idea! I may have to steal it, lol, I mean borrow it! cheers.gif

They can sell a good price and you dont have to carry them on your luggage...
Awesome...do you think if i budget $2-$3USD each bottle, that would be a fair price?

Thanks Mora!! great idea for my OOT bag...along with chips, margarita mix and shot glass...

We are actually not doing wedding favours. My fiance and I decided that instead of welcome dinner and favours we would charter a boat and take every one on a private night cruise/snorkeling excursion on the second day of our holiday.

 

So we are getting transportation, open bar and orderves (I'm sure I'm spelling this wrong) 3 hours on the boat and a supervised snorkeling excursion, with equipment, for those that want to partake for less cost than welcome dinner and favors.

 

I have had very favorable response from my guests to this idea. Everyone hasn't stopped talking about it since we announced it in Aug.

I love your idea, Mo! I wasn't too sure I was going to do favors in Jamaica, since we are doing the OOT bags, but that is such a great idea, so we'll see.

 

I am looking for ideas for our AHR. I wanted to do the mini-wine bottle thing, since my FI is Italian and they all make their own wine, we were going to use that, but there wasn't enough time to prepare. Now that we are having it at a Chinese/Japanese restaurant, I am not sure what to do. Perhaps a nice set of chopsticks with tray?? Ideas?

We gave out mini bottles of Black Seal Bermudian Rum and pink Bermuda sand, each with blue and pink ribbon tied around the neck. My maid of honour, who lives on the island, was able to put these together for us, and even went so far as to add tags with our names and wedding date.

 

As an added surprise, she and her mother made up sachets of Bermuda cedar shavings, again with the tags attached. There is no nicer smell.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
