Show me your favors!!

Recommended Posts

I need inspiration. I was going to do heart wine stoppers, but now I don't know. I'd especially love to see DIY wedding favors. Cool, fun and unique favors. Share!!

 

Pictures a plus but not neccessary.

I don't have pictures yet, and haven't absolutely decided on what we'll do- but one thought is that I'm going to bake a gourmet cookie package. I make these monster chocolate chunk cookies and dip them in white / milk chocolate. I also make almond sugar cookies (would be wedding cake shaped) and decorate them.

 

For Christmas this year, I made cookie packages and sold them to raise money for the wedding. It was a lot of fun because I used a basic sugar cookie glaze and then hand painted angels, christmas trees, christmas landscapes, etc... on them. Between that and tamale sales, we made about $700 in 3 weeks.

 

I also want to make handmade candies and chocolates (like cheesecake truffles) and see about taking them with us for the favors---- but I'm not sure how well they would hold up with heat during travel...

just reading "almond sugar cookies" made my mouth water.

 

i really wanted to do cookies, but i wasn't sure how well they would travel. i'm shipping the favors to my wedding coordinator a few weeks before we arrive. i wouldn't want them to crumble to pieces in the mail.

 

cookies are such a good and tempting idea though. plus make great hotel snacks!

I know---- Our families are huge 'foodies', and snacks were the only thing I could think of that I wouldn't feel was a waste of money. I just didn't want to do some trinket that was either cheap or something that was cool looking, but not functional/practical...

 

I love to cook/bake, so this made sense for me...

Those seashell shakers are cool! And I want your monster cookie recipe...mmmm.

 

We're making CD's as a soundtrack to our love, ordering custom labels/cases, and sealing them with ribbon & a sticker of our monogram. I may also add personalized mint tins or candles . . . still adjusting the budget.

where are you getting your CD labels and cases? i'm having the hardest time finding a case - i don't want to do plastic so i've been searching for a template for a paper case. how much are the custom labels/cases if don't mind me asking?

Oh I love those salt and pepper shakers! They are so cute! As for the cookies, I think if I made a batch of cookies right now I'd end up eating them all and then I wouldn't fit into my dress... But that is a really great idea! I like the personal element.

 

We are still trying to figure out what we're going to do, but last weekend we went up to Michaels (big craft store) and got some stuff that we're going to try to use to make our own favors. We got a little heart shaped jar with a cork in it. We're going to paint our names and the wedding date on the front, and then fill it with different colors of sand, then put these little starfish, pretty shells, glass that matches our wedding colors, etc in it. We'll see how it turns out...

These are inexpensive to moderately priced labels/cases I've found in my research. I've found them to be more affordable than having them made for me from start to finish. Hope this helps :o)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
