- Wedding: April 2012
This is my first try at favors! My Future Mother-In-Law wants to buy us mini whiskeys as favors – my FI’s family is Scottish and she wanted to add a touch of Scotland to our wedding. I wanted to do organza hairpins originally and was going to pin them on a manzanita branch so that guests could take one. I figured the ladies would take one and the men would not really care about favors. Since she’s offered them, I thought maybe I’d combine the two. Here’s what it would look like (I had a couple of mini vodkas from a recent flight!):
The flower on the right is about 2.25″ and the one on the right is 3.25″ wide (but looks super huge in the picture for some reason). The one on the right is about the right size for a hairpin, maybe just a touch smaller. The one on the left looks better on the bottle because of the scale, but it’s pretty small for a hairpin. I’m not sure about the ribbon yet, I jsut used some purple curling that I had but I may do fabric ribbon.
If you got this as a favor would you like it? I would do the flowers as either hairpins or as brooches (since I’m not putting them on a branch anymore). What do you think?
