    Hi everyone,

    Hubby and I got married Feb. 2 2010 in Cozumel and we are having an at home wedding celebration party in July for those who could'nt come to Cozumel (and those who came too !!)
    I am struggling with what kind of gift we could give to our guests at our AHR. We are having an outdoor, tropical theme party at a campgound.....any ideas ladies also any ideas on activities we could do at the party...starting at
    2PM ending at ....?
    My creative juices are running low after spending months on DIY invites, OOT bags etc for our actual wedding and I knew this was the place to come to get ideas for our AHR.
    Thanks for your help,

      We're having our AHR at a brewery & the glasses that everyone will use for the beer will be the gift. We had glass beer mugs made with a personalized logo on them. Since you're having an outdoor party, you could have personalized plastic stadium cups made &/or koozies. Both could be used during the party & taken home as a souvenir.

        I like food favors, they never get wasted! I'm having a BBQ (it's kinda expected in Texas) so I'm giving away little personalized bottles or BBQ sauce. If your doing tropical you can give away some tropical themed cookies (maybe flower shaped sugar cookies or something with macadamia nut it it) in cute packages. Since your going to Mexico some kind of hot sauce or spicy seasoning would be nice and you can always put your own sticker on it.

          Great thread topic - I hope to hear some ideas as I too am now wondering what to do.
          Not to hyjack your thread or anything, but I too wonder what can be done. My FMIL is planning a pre-wedding AHR back in Ontario (FI hometown) for all the people that cant come to the wedding. We live in ALberta, so its not like they could come to our AHR either. So I am also stuck as to what we should be giving them...especially bc its even before the wedding....lol
          Bring on the ideas ladies...we need some creative help!

            That's a tough one but I think food would work too. Get some cookies in cute little bags, put a sticker of your wedding logo (if you have one, if not just something cute) and viola! Instant favor everyone will enjoy. =)

              I agree with food favors... cookies, cake, pastries, jelly beans in your wedding colors, mini Mexican liquor(if you can get in your town)

              What about a smores kit? Create a cute little box with some crackers, marshmellows, and chocolate and then attach the recipe on the back of a thank you card. That could be super cute and go with the low key campground idea.

                I agree..some sort of food favor..maybe to go with whatever theme you decide.

                  Food is always a good idea, maybe the small bottles of apple cider or your favorite wine with a DIY label.
                  Good luck!!

                    Love the smores kit! It fits in with the campground. I just noticed marshmallow roasting sticks at Target in their $1 section. Any other type of food favor will be appreciated by your guests. The cups and koozies idea was cute too!
