So I have to start this by saying I TOTALLY stole this idea from Martha Stewart Weddings…but it’s such a fantastic idea I just couldn’t help myself!
My fiance I are getting married this October at a beautiful B&B that has an amazing big, red barn on property…so we’re having a rustic, farm, country style wedding.
I saw this idea for wedding programs the other day and fell in LOVE! Each bag holds not only the wedding program but also a recipe book filled with recipes from the caterer. We’re going to take that idea a step further and include some recipes from family and friends as well. So…the recipe book will be the favor!
Attached to the bag we’ll have the escort card. Since the reception will take place in a tent right next to where we’re getting married…all people have to do is walk down the hill after the ceremony and find their table.
I’m sooo excited to start working on this project! What would you think of this as a wedding guest? I want to make favors that people will actually want to take home! lol! 😉

That’s a fantastic idea! Thanks for sharing! And I’m totally jealous of your amazing venue! You’ll have to show us your own DIY results when you do it. 🙂
I might steal the recipe book idea, myself!

That’s adorable! I love the recipe book idea for favours. Make sure you leave space for them to add recipes that they gather for the next couple months as well!

This is SUCH a great idea! I love how they look all hanging up on the clothesline and I love getting little packets of stuff to go through! And that stamp with all the animals is absolutely fabulous.

This is fantastic. I love that you could add personal recipes, and maybe even add fun little stories to go along with them!?!

Aww thanks ladies! We would tweak the design so it matches our invitation suite and the rest of the DIY paper stuff we are doing; menus, smores tags, wine labels, etc. Our colors are brown and red…with a little bit of brushed gold here and there.
My fiance is an amazing cook and is “famous” among our friends and family for whipping up some fantastic meals…so I think this will be perfect!!
@littlemissmoo…great idea about leaving room for adding recipes! Thanks!
Thought I would post some pics of our venue too!!!
