I would scrap the favours and enjoy your week! Adding more tasks to your schedule this week seems like madness!

No one will miss them!

You could always take the money you would spend towards favors and donate it to a charity, then just print out simple cards that tell people that in lieu of favors, a donation in their name was made to XYZ Charity.

You could always take the money you would spend towards favors and donate it to a charity, then just print out simple cards that tell people that in lieu of favors, a donation in their name was made to XYZ Charity. But I agree with Future Mrs. Martin – favors aren’t really necessary. At our wedding, almost half of our guests didn’t take theirs home! So sad.

 

Whoops sorry, double post.

I am sorry your cookie person is unable to help you.

If you still want cookies, I just found this box of Tollhouse cookie mix at the grocery store. There are 3 packages inside that you can use to make different size batches of cookies. I just made 1 pack and got 2 1/2 dozen cookies from one bag. All you need to make them is the mix from the box, a little bit of vegtable oil, a little bit of water, and eggs. They are super easy and come out cakey/fluffy. I think the box was less than $4.00. You could get some little bags from Michaels or Joanns to put them in and be done with them. If you use a coupon from Michaels or Joanns, you might be able to get done with your favors for $10 to $12.

Scrape them if you want, they really aren’t needed.  But if you are intent on doing them you could bake three types of cookies and one of each flavor in a celephane bag tied with ribbon.  You could do that in a morning a few days prior and still have time to spare.  You could do the same thing with brownies or cheesecake bars.  Good luck and have fun!!!!

i always liked the idea of giving a packet of flowers seeds. I think that you can get them pretty cheap. But is it too late to plant seeds and get flowers ? idk. good luck!!!

As far as little things like favours go, I know this lady who has her own online wedding favor store. She’s also a wedding planner, she just enjoys making wedding favors (and they’re VERY affordable. It’s cheaper to buy them from her than to make them yourself) Anyways, the company is called A Beautiful Union, and the website is http://www.abeautifulunion.webs.com
I’m pretty sure the favors start at $0.33 each! She’s a friend of mine, but I also used her products for my wedding. Just thought I would help out a friend by letting you know(:

You guys have had some good ideas. I have these banana chocolate chip muffins that everyoen I know go crazy over. Should I bake up enough for 100 people or is this a too regular of a thing to do? It’s mainly my fiance’s friends and his mother that request me to make the muffins.

@abeautifulunion: I went to that website but there wasn’t a lot of choices. Is there usually more favour wise? I just see ribbon send offs and a corkboard for a guestbook.

Those are just the ones that she has ready to go, like examples of what she makes that you can buy as well. The thing that she does is like if you give her an idea, she’ll make it for you. She knows alot of wholesale vendors, so if you have an idea for a favor, she can make it for you for really cheap.
