Wedding Favours HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

I have gone back and forth between this and came to the conclusion that most guests either leave their favors behind or throw them away. If I was you I would go with something edible or something fun.

 

I am going to get some maracas while down in Cabo. These are going to be used doubled up as a favor as well as an escort card. I will tie each escort card to the maraca (that way it won't fly away in the wind which always seem to be present in Cabo). On the front of the card will state the guest name and table number and the back will say "shake for a kiss". I figured by the end of the night most people will be dancing with them on the dance floor.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Cheers!!

Since we're doing pretty nice oot bag/contents we decided to forego the favors... every wedding i've been too they're always just a small trinket that ends up being thrown away... big waste of money if that's their fate!

We decided to use Mexican Talavera tiles as our escort/place cards (1 per couple). They can be used later as a trivet or spoon rest, or just put on a shelf as decoration. I bought 20 different tiles at tilesandtiles.com, painted the backs with terracotta paint and wrote names/table #'s on the backs.

 

Here's a pic

The table #â€s are Hacienda house tiles ordered from finecraftsandimports.com

    • 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.
