Are the cookies and tea something that is meaningful to you, other than being related to your heritage?

My FI and I are big foodies, so we’re doing flavored salts.

We started making home-made liqueurs and fudge as Christmas presents the first year we got together, so we made them as favours for our wedding (to our own recipes).

My fiancé is Asian so I got little takeout boxes and will stuff it with fortune cookies.

@Pinkmoon:  Ooooo, did you get them for a good price? I need takeout boxes too! but more for our pad thai station.

 

We are making test tube vials with a funky flavored loose leaf tea. Our theme is Alice in Wonderland and we’ve done some tea tastings together… so it made sense!

not doing favors at all.  Unneccessary expense.

We did donations to rhematoid arthritis in honor of my sister.  I didn’t want to spend money on something people would throw out.

I’m an alcoholic, so I’m making Limoncello. I’ve got 4 gallons ready so far.

 

*I’m not really an alcoholic, but I do love my booze.

We had a masquerade wedding.  My BMs and I made most of the masks ourselves, and those were our favors, too!

I was a BM for another pair of friends of mine a few years ago, and I loved how personalized their favors were.  He’s British and she’s American; they met while teaching English on a small island in Japan.  I lived on the next island over.  The three of us went to a little ceramics class each week on their island.  After they got engaged, they spent MONTHS making little ceramic chopstick rests with the Japanese character for love on them.  The clay they used was even locally quarried.  They gave those out along with a nice pair of chopsticks to each of their guests.

We are big dog lovers and everyone knows one day I want to open a shelter. So, we made a donation to an organization that rehabilitates and educates people on pet ownership and we will have a sign explaining the organization we donated to as well as a little basket of dog treats people can take home to their fur babies.  (a lot of our guests are dog lovers as well)

OP- your idea is cute!!

I have no idea. I just wanted to say that I think the tea and cookies idea is fantastic, and I’d be more likely to use/consume them than any favors I’ve ever gotten at a wedding (well, other than the reusable shopping tote bags… those are super handy).
