AHR Wedding Favors

Recommended Posts

Great ideas ladies!

We are thinking of finding something down in Mexico to bring back for the AHR. Maybe maracas with our names on them or something along those lines. We want to keep it cheap as well and thought we'd be able to get some deals when we were down there.

we are having dark chocolate long stemmed roses

 

my mom thought it would be cute cuz our last name is 'rose'

 

i personally like edible favours because they aren't wasted, like most are.

We are going to do a candy buffet, but just as part of the regular snacks and food set out. For the gifts we are getting the small woven beach bag favors, lining them with bright celophane and filling them with jelly bellies. Each one will hold about 10 jelly beans. That way the will be bright on the tables and still "beachy".

 

I love the shot glass idea! Having everyone drink to get a glass is a great idea:)

Great ideas everyone!! Love the photo idea!!

 

My friend is going back to Jamaica next week (our AHR is in April) so I have asked him to bring my back Jamaican Jerk spice (in bulk). I am going to put it in little baggies and attach a receipe card for Jerk Chicken and Jerk Tofu (I am a vegetarian). I will probably print a picture from our wedding on the receipe card.

 

We are not having a sit down meal (more appys, etc.) so I am not sure how to hand them out. I have a friend taking everyone's picture as they arrive so I might have her give them out after she takes the pictures. Does anyone else have ideas how they will give their out?

We just had our AHR... we had candy (m&m) favors and about 75% were left on the tables (we r drinkers and eaters and I thinking everyone was stuffed and drunk and not thinking about the favors)... IMO dont spend too much on them, if your group is anything like ours, they will likely get left behind!

My AHR is in 3 weeks and I went out just after V-day and bought candy on sale. I got chocolate hearts and lips, some red, white and pink jelly beans and conversation hearts. I didn't spend too much at all as it was all on sale. If we have stuff left over, it won't go to waste with my family! lol

I think I am going to do bottles of sangria for everyone with a fancy label and bow. My worry to would be to spend on candy and no one would take it. Not that I am cheap, but that would just irritate me after the fact.

our AHR is pretty formal...and a bit beachy - kind of trying to bring the beach to those that couldnt make it to our cancun wedding.

Sooo, we went back and forth about different favors as well and finally came up with "beach in a bag"...we are taking organza bags, putting some unrefind sugar in them (for the sand), three mini chocolate seashells, and two chocolate dipped sand dollar cookies with a little thank you tag. the great part is that we have a great friend who is a great baker and is home making all the chocolate and cookies so it will save us alot of cash!! we found it practical, and hopefully a great snack after a night of drinking!

We're tossing around renting a photo booth for the AHR and not actually doing table favours. The booth will print pics off for each guest to take home and we can add our monogram to them.

Figured this would be the best "bang for our buck" although the buck will be a lot more expensive than traditional favours.

I love the idea of a candy bar also. Might do that instead of a dessert table!

Cheers

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
