Could you empty them out and attach a flat bag to each escort card, if you’re doing those?

Why not put them on the tables in a sugar caddy. On the caddy, you could have a cute note about how each packet was from a date you two went on.

I think it would be kind of sad to lose your collection after the wedding! 🙁  So I would try to find a way to incorporate them without opening them I guess.  

If you guys like rock music and have a sense of humor, I do have one idea…..I was once at a small cover band concert and the band started playing “pour some sugar on me” and my friend (who, yes, was drunk) starting tossing sugar packets on the stage and the band loved it and went with it – sort of like confetti I guess.  Sounds lame typing it, but in the moment, it was really funny!  I wonder if you couldn’t use that song at your reception some how and make something funny out of it like that.  Just a thought….

I, too, think it would be really sad to lose the collection! Some ideas:

* Tape the packets to a ribbon and use it like a banner around your sweetheart table.

* Tape them to skewers or something and have them sticking out of the centerpieces.

* Empty & flatten the bags, glue them into a blank journal or scrapbook and use it as your guestbook.

Could you put them in a shadow box, and have people sign the glass of the shadow box, like a guest book?

Do a modified sand ceremony where you and your fi mix the sugar with some different colors of sand into a decorative bottle as part of your ceremony. You’ll probably want to add some silica or something to help absorb any humidity (someone at a crafts store like Michaels can help you figure that out). Empty the packets into jars ahead of time but don’t try coloring the sugar; it may clump over time,

Sugar packets don’t offer a lot of protection so after 5 years, the sugar has probably picked up some “off” flavors from the room, so you probably don’t want to serve it for people to eat, but you should be able to preserve it and make it an interesting keepsake.

I like the idea of incorporating them into some sort of guest book alternative!

Aww, how cute! 😀 

 

When I was reading your post, I got a mental image of sugar packets strung up and around the head table or somewhere, like one of those Christmas card strings you see occasionally. I think it’d be awesome to do that! Then when people ask about it, you can tell them about your collection and you wouldn’t have to use up the packets. It’d be a shame to have them used up! 🙁
