Ok Ladies I need some honest opinions here. I have been searching high and low for the perfect favors to give our wedding guests. We are having an intimate ceremony and reception with around 60 guests and we are going for a modern yet southern kind of theme. We are having a tapas style menu and one of the featured dishes will be Southern Style Shrimp and Grits. The restaurant catering the event uses these fantastic grits made right in my home state and they are used by chefs all over the country. So I thought perfect, I’ll have small bags of these gourmet grits for all of our guests to take home with them! After all I was raised in the south and I love me some good grits. Is this idea weird? Would you think that was a strange thing to receive as a favor at a wedding you attended?

I’m a northern girl through and through, but this idea sounds fantastic! I developed a deep and abiding love for grits (with butter please) and Waffle Houses on many travels to the south. I have a New Orleans wedding to attend in spring and i’m definitely hoping she’ll do something fitting for the location!

I think the idea is great! You may want to include one of your favorite recipies with the grits so that people who haven’t cooked with them before know what to do with them. If your caterer will give you a copy of the recipe they served, that would be a great way to remember the wedding!

Holy cow this is one of my favorite dishes! Southern shrimp n grits! MMMMMMM! I love grits, love BEING a grit (Girls Raised In The South) and this is a fantastic idea!
How about seeing if the venue can give you their recipe for the shrimp and grits and do as Ms. Peachy suggested and put it on the bags? That way they’d have a lasting memory of your day.

Thanks for the great ideas everyone! I know the restaurant has a cookbook out with the famous shrimp and grits recipe in it so I will definitely put it on the bags. Yum!
