Ours are probably going to be cookies… who doesn’t like edible stuff?

Otherwise…we’re having a tough time coming up with things, too.

I like the favors where they put like the dry ingredients for soup or bread in a jar along with the recipe.

We are going to do escort card that are also bookmarks and some Italian wedding cookies.

We are doing potted plants. We’ll have them as centerpieces and then the guests get to take them home

 

We are using different galvanized metal buckets, watering cans, pails etc.

We will have a little tag on them that reads “grow old along with me…the best is yet to be”

almostduffy – I love the potted plant idea! I have only two bridesmaids (and one is only 7) so I wanted a DIY project they could help with. I decided to make wine glass charms to put on all the tables and in little bowls by the bar. We are having stations and mingling areas at the reception so charms might be a good idea. I ordered all the supplies for less than $20 and made 150 charms. It was fun! We turned up the music and had a “ladies night”. The 7 year old loved picking out the bead combinations and I bent the edges with pliers. Simple enough! 🙂

We’re planning on going with homemade fudge in a little cake shape but lately I’ve been wondering if we should go with my family’s “famous” indulgent chocolate brownie recipe instead and cut them into tiny bite sized pieces….

We’re doing chocolate chip cookies! I hadn’t thought about doing milk too, but that’s such a fun idea!

@lilyfaith – I actually wanted to make them, but everyone said I was crazy, lol. As of now, our plan is to ask a family friend to bake them, or have the bakery we are getting our cake from do them. I still like the idea of doing them myself, but I got talked out of it!
