DIY coasters!!!  Thats what we are doing and I love them 🙂

We will also have extra to put at the bar and they will be so much fun!!   It was like $60 for 1000 coasters and supplies 🙂

Fiance and I are wearing grape soda pins like in the movie, Up.

Example:

When I got them in the mail, I realized how easy they would be to make myself, so I bought a lot of vintage bottlecaps off of ebay and I’m going to make those into pins for my guests to wear and keep as favors.

I’m also making homemade Limoncello to bottle up and use as table decorations and I’ll let my guests that are of drinking age and like to drink take those home.

We made our favours. They were s’mores kits! 

We bought the paper bags at a grocery store and I printed on them at home using a laser printer. Then we went to Costco and the bulk food store and bought a huge supply of graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows, divided them in to zip lock bags, put them in the paper bags and tied them up with ribbon. I think each favour ended up costing us around $1.60 when we did the math.

@mbaldan:  I’ve just never been a big fan of the favors. Best ones I’ve seen were sparklers. Worst were rubber duckies… I worked in catering for a while and, more often than not, the favors were all left behind.

@mbaldan:  Just saw you’re going to Vegas, what about a $1 chip to a casino?

You can always do some kind of preserve in the 125ml mason jars. We are making a set of red pepper jelley and BBQ sauce for 2.50 for bolth.

edit: if you where only to do one you could come in under budget in the states since produce is much cheaper than here.
