Is everyone doing favors?

I might glue a little pink ribbon on it or something.

I'm doing OOT bags, too, so people will still get goodies, but at all the weddings I've been going to lately, I saw so many favors left on the tables at the end of the night. It made me kinda sad that my friends probably spent time and money making a cute favor and so many people just leave them! So we thought this would be something nice to do.
great idea! yeah we had my sister's bridal shower about a month ago, and I spent soooo much time and money on her favors, and they were all left on the table. Kinda sad actually, but now I have 30 wedding cake candles!!!

I ordered white cardboard cases for something like 50cents each and ordered stickers of our mongram to decorate them. I hand wrote thank you notes and glued them in. Then, I found an ebay seller that had thick brown ribbon for like 20cents a yard, wrapped them, and sealed them with a sticker.

It was much easier than it sounds and cost less than $100 total!
what a great idea! you little diy-er! do you happen to have a pic? yes it does sound a little complicated!

ok earlier I didn't say what my favors were so here goes....(I'll take a pic later)

 

My mom decided she wanted everyone to have necklaces so when we were in Cabo last year in May we bought some nice shell necklaces for the women. Then when we were in PV we bought some nice cases to hold the necklaces...My mom is then wrapping them up....

 

The guys will be getting cigars from Nicaragua...I believe two a piece...

 

that's it...I'll take pics later. Promise...

 

No OOT bags for us.

We're having a small wedding...8 people total so we're not doing favors...

 

But I'm still trying to convince my mom that a candy buffet isn't "childish" and would be totally cool for our AHR. cheesy.gif
