I’m thinking of using s’mores as our wedding favours and wanted opinions. At our venue, we have a huge outdoor bonfire pit area. It can hold 200 people, with wooden benches, enclosed sides, and the staff will maintain the bonfires until the end of the night.
So, I was thinking s’mores might be a good idea as a favour, but i’m not sure which way to go with it. I could do individual s’more kits for each guest with the crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate stacked in a small bag with a nice tag. Or, I could maybe do a s’more station to go on our dessert table. I could have different kinds of chocolate and marshmallows for guests to use and maybe create a sign that thanks everyone to go with it.
Our venue is at a ranch, and our theme is rustic country/chic.
Any opinions or suggestions?

My aunt did that for her wedding favors and everyone loved it. She was married near a lake with camping sites

I just finished making S’mores for my wedding favours tonight. I just bought regular sized mason jars and filled them with large Marshmallows, grahm crackers and broken off choclate bark and kind of layered them. They look fantastic!

@MandeeBee: What a great idea! Did your guests take them home or use them at the wedding? If you have any pics, you should post them! I’d love to see them.
I”m kind of a sucker for anything in mason jars lol.

I just had to say, I am totally up for a bon fire anytime, add smores and you will be my favorite bride ever. I think the smore station sound super fun!! And as someone who can only sorta dance, having that to do would be amazing.

@Carolinejane: Roasted marshmallow, gramhn cracker, chocolate… most wonderful think ever cooked over an open flame, staple of camping trips everywhere (well, camping trips in North America at least).

@Carolinejane: It didn’t even occur to me that some people might not know what s’mores are! That’s so interesting. They’re delicious, you should try them. You roast a marshmallow (normally at bonfires when camping) and then put it on top of a graham cracker with a piece of chocolate and top it with another cracker. It melts the chocolate and is gooey and delicious!
@hiroshymatetrastar: That sounds delish!
I saw recipes for homemade marshmallows where you can make different flavors. So, like strawberry flavoured marshmallows (options are endless). I was thinking that might be good, have different options for people to choose from to make it a little different from the classic s’more (but also have plain marshmallows for the traditionalists lol).

@ButtercupBetty: We just had guests take them home (although some actually ate them there!)

I prepackaged ours and had it at the mignight snack table. We had other favours so this was meant for the fire pit. I thought it was easier for guests to grab a bag and take it to the fire rather than a smore station. I placed the marshmellows on top so they could get them easily and toast.
