italian cookies from ur local bakery…they are small, delicate, look gourmet, and taste great. u can get an assortmentm buy a few pounds, and fit one or two in each box. Us italians are suckers for weddings, so if u let them know its for a wedding they might just cut u a deal :o)
go to ur local bakery and start taste testing!!!

We used 2×2 favor boxes, too, and filled them with sour candy in our colors—pink, orange, and yellow. It was the least expensive, but still cute, idea I could come up with!

I’m making flower seed packets for our 10.10.10 wedding – I’m using a template from Microsoft word – i took a picture of the sunflowers in my yard last year & that’s the picture on the front – on the back is a cute saying….. plus – i saved all the seeds from my sunflowers last year & I’ll have seeds from this year’s crop too so I will definately have enough seeds – to fill the packets. I have tons of different kind of sunflower seeds & I like the fact they are “from our garden to yours”
I haven’t really priced it out…. but the most expensive thing is ink for my printer $15, a ream of paper & glue or double siding tape is all we need – i also have a relatively small guest list (100) so I’m not anticipating on too much cost or labor to make them!!
I have some rough drafts… I’ll try to post them later!

Is your Sept wedding autumn or rustic themed? Our August wedding is rustic themed and we’re using hard maple candies. Found them online pretty cheap (considering they’re real maple) – 100 for $20. They’re cute, inexpensive, individually wrapped and work will with a rustic or autumn theme.

O YUM!! where/though what company did you find those maple candies online? My dad and I used to eat them all the time when I was young and I would LOVE to get him some…esp at such a low price!!!! At my hometown’s ‘local malple festival’ they charge about $2 a piece!! yikes…

Darn, just when I think something will be fabulous I can’t find it. I think I read in Women’s Day about at a bridal shower where each guest was given this ball w/ seed and dirt in it and all you had to do was literally thow it in the garden and water it and it would grow…of course now i can’t find it >>>blah

we have made very simple favors for our wedding. so simple to make but mean alot! we cut 2 pieces of coloured dress netting in to 2 circles, about the size of a small plate (can match your colour theme) . in these you fill them with almonds. traditionally 5 almonds which stand for Health , Wealth , Happiness, Fertility and Long Life.
I only used 4 meters of fabric for 60 favors. which was plenty, cost me £3.80!!! the ribon to tie it all together cost me £4.00 and then its just buying the almonds
