We really wanted a way to incorporate our love of traveling and photography so I made coasters for each guest/couple/family with photos we took during our travels. We picked which photos to use for each recipient, depending on their taste or how we know them. For example – some guests have also gone to Spain, so we used photos from our trip to Spain, other guests we know through music festivals so we used photos from those – think sunset at Coachella. A lot of guests really loved them. Here is the tutorial I used – http://www.liliesandloafers.com/diy-instagram-coasters/

I wrapped them with thin hemp and then bought some printed/personalized gift tags on etsy. I don’t have a photo of a full set, but here is one on the table (pic from Park Guell). The other side had their name.

We did chocolate covered Oreos! They turned out super cute and everyone loved them!

theillest:  I LOVE this idea, so personal and fun. Can I ask how much you ended up spending per guest?

vanessa777:  My friend made 150 cake pops (which were delicious) and I saw mini s’more kits online that you assemble yourself.

brideinthesix:  I still have guests raving about my dads famous spicy pickles! I told him that when I’m pregnant he is going to have to make them by the gallon for me! =)

Initially I had planned to do homemade vanilla extract like this..

But we ended up doing succulents in tea cups!

We did antique key bottle openers. They doubles as escort cards and the back said “thank you for being a key part of our day”

vanessa777:  Cake Pops aren’t difficult to make, but  they’re certainly time consuming I think.

Kat14:  Fiance and I were thinking doing coffee and tea too! Did you buy pre-ground coffee or grind your own? And how close to the wedding did you package everything? We’re trying to figure out the best way to do it.

ladylovebug:  a few days before the wedding.  I had them grind it at the coffee shop.  I love to grind coffee but figured it would be too much.  We had lots left over but I just put in my coffee container and enjoyed lol
