We are going to make a donation to a charity in lieu of favors.  We will have place cards at each table with the charity information on them.

We are doing TWO favors!  And I barely have to do anything for either of them.  We are having a subtle concert theme for the wedding.   My fiance downloads/trades bootlegs of shows, so he downloaded and burned 40 different shows.  Our guests will be able to “shop” for their favorite CD.  We found nice white cardboard sleeves, and will use a sticker with our monogram, and mailing labels with set lists and a thank you on them.   Our second favor is being made by my aunt.  She makes an obscene amount of fudge every holiday season- and gives out lots of fudge as gifts.  She offered numerous times to make the fudge for the wedding before I accepted.  I didn’t want her to go through all the trouble- but she really wants to do it.  I found boxes at Michael’s (on sale, + 40% off coupon on top of sale, turned out to be 11 cents per box) that will fit 4-5 pieces of fudge per box.   We will either just use a monogram sticker to close the box, or use the sticker+ribbon.

We’re making a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society and I’m making homemade caramel as well. I got our jars at containerandpackaging.com for about $0.43 each and the lids were $0.10 each! Awesome deal! I’m making little jam jar skirts for the jars this weekend. Each table will have it’s own fabric that coordinates with a button on the escort card.

We are doing small maple syrup (local sugarbush) bottles with seed paper notes.  Maple syrup = yummy and the paper can be planted and will bloom with a wildflower mix.

No clue yet. When in doubt, go edible or else skip them since they are not required and no one will miss them if you don’t have them. If they aren’t important to you and/or you can’t afford them, save your money for something else that is important to you.

We are buying coasters on newfavors.com and one will hold a picture of J and I, and then the other will be on a table when they first walk in, and have their name and table number…. So a pair of coasters, and they work for favors and also table cards.

We are also getting heart shaped cookies with “our” last name in them!!! so that is a favor as well…

So excited. Great ideas girls!

We designed temporary tattoos with our names and date on them 🙂 We are going to tie them to a 80z water bottled designed by us as well. My Fiance is a tattoo artist and that is how we met, so we are basing our wedding around our story :).

We did local raw honey in glass tubes.  They were so beautiful and only cost us around $0.60 each.  Unfortunately someone thought they were orange colored bubbles and many people believed this person.  So if you do this put a friggin honey label on the tag or something.
