My brother and I are both terrified of fire, so sparklers are out for us. I love the idea, though, especially for the 4th weekend! So cute!

If we have room in the budget for a “favor,” we’ll probably do a donation to Autism Speaks.

Okay, what we’ve seen & liked thus far:

fresh cherries:

 

home made jams in mini-mason jars (dolled up with fabric & ribbon of course)

We also like the idea of seed packets (either wild flower mix or different veggies) with a cute little message ‘everything grows with love’ or such like.

I think sparklers are a great idea! Especially because of your patriotic date. 😉

Something we would consider, but most venues are ‘fire free’ here (regardless of indoor/outdoor).

I love the idea of making a jam…there are so many possibilities…I saw one of the wedding shows, I think it was “Four Weddings” on TLC and they used sparklers as the Bride and Groom were being introduced. It looked nice. Plus, the Bride and many of her guests were Firefighters so I guess it worked out in the safety department, too!

I’m doing a cookie buffet and using Mrs. Dumplings’ as an inspiration. My FI’s family are pretty darn good bakers and I have some on my side so they are all chipping in and making something for the buffet. I thought about doing a second favor but not sure it is in the budget yet. My idea for the second favor is a small jar of honey. I thought about having a little bit of twine or rafia around the top of the jar with a tag that has our names/dates and “Love is sweet.”

I would love, love, love to give out sparklers, but it’s in a state park, and fireworks aren’t allowed.  So I’d be terrified that someone would light them off, not knowing and we’d lose our damage deposit.  Those would turn into some really expensive fireworks =)

What about lightsticks or those necklaces and bracelets that light up? Put a bracelet together and twirl it around and viola! Instant light show for your arrival/departure!

LOVE the sparkler idea – i went to a wedding this past July where sparklers were included and they got some great photos.  They did their first dance outside surrounded by their guests holding sparklers, and some people wrote words in the air with the sparkler and the photographer was able to get those shots…. do you think i said ‘sparkler’ enough? 😉

My aunt owns an italian confectionery in our town so she is making us chocolate in the shape of Ms…since our last name will start with an M. Then on the front we are sticking our monogram and on the back we are putting the crest with the meaning of the last name.

@missmouse29: I love that pic!  I have it in my inspiration folder!

 

I like the idea of the sparklers!  We’re not technically allowed to have any, but I’m going to figure out a way.  I’m thinking of making little s’more kits for the place settings, since there will be little fire pits in the outdoor area.

I had been planning on having sparklers, but it isn’t allowed at our venue.

For favours we are planning on making limoncello, however we really need to start making it!
