If you really want to do the cd then go for it, but my choice would be the honey. I think that is so sweet! And if you have little honey jars with flower seeds, all tied up with ribbon that would be amazing and really a personal touch. Also flowers+bees, perfect!

Don’t even get me started on all the ‘Honey to the bee’ signs you could make… loving it!

I think one favor is more then enough! Also, out of those personally I would probably listen to the CD once, and never again (too taste specific,) I also probably wouldn’t actually use those seeds. However, I would totally use & eat that honey! And I think it is so cool because it will be from the Bride’s hive, so it has that very personal touch. Also, I think the honey goes well with the woodsy vibe of your wedding.

The honey would probably be used by everyone — but I have to say, I think the flower seeds is such a sweet, unique idea! I kind of love it and would steal it if I were capable of growing anything. (I have a notorious black thumb).

One favor is enought and most people only like favors of the edible kind, so go with the honey,

I love all your ideas! I wanted to do the seed thing, also, but unfortunately our wedding is in August and my Future Mother-In-Law pointed out that is too late to plant flowers. I doubt people would hold on to them until Spring. Great ideas, though! LOVE the honey. I use it as food and as a face mask so I sure do go through a lot haha!

I would nix the scratch ticket (people won’t get the significance, and the other things are more special- it’s an extra $60.) and the CD (most people throw them away or keep them around because they feel guilty), and keep the honey and the seed packet ideas- you could tie the seed packet to the jar, and it would look cute on the tables. IF you want to give them beer, how about having your BIL’s beer as the signature cocktail during cocktail hour?

I would just do honey.  I would definitely NOT do the scratch ticket.

I really like the seeds idea – very unique and personal.  I also like the homebrew idea, but I think that would be better incorporated into the reception or a cocktail hour.  We’ve been consdering doing a homebrew for the toast so everyone can have a chance to taste.  Also, honey can be used in certain beer recipes if you’re looking for more ways to integrate it; I’ve had some good honey wheat beers before.

Honey, definitely. Love it! No everyone drinks beer, not everyone gardens, I don’t think most people want a mix cd.

@kateisstoned:  I think nix the CD but keep everything else. Giving your guests a CD of ‘our songs’ as a favour seems kind of self centred, but I like the rest of the ideas.

Lose the CD and the scratch tickets.  The other elements are homey and cute and people would love them – save the CD and scratch tickets for your bridesmaids or some other party.  The honey, the seeds, and the beer are family oriented and personal, while the other two seem a little gratutous and people really arent going to appreciate them the way you do.

Gardener and beekeeper, how perf! All I want is a garden and my own hive.. I’m jealous!

 

I agree with everyone else.. NO CD, honey and/or seeds, and serve the homebrew during the reception
