What about like a mini cookbook of family recipes?

Maybe something they could eat at the wedding? Like personalized hershey bars or m&m’s. I love favors I can eat 🙂

Im running the idea of packs of playing cards. Doing my own DIY packaging tho.

The cheapest ive sourced tho is 1.25 AUD dollars per pack.. so that comes to a total for 150 guests $187.50.

I was wondering tho if it was borderline on tacky. But I figure if I do the packaging right, it should turn out great!

@ccranetobe I don’t think that’s tacky at all. I would love that favor. It’s something your guests can actually use and enjoy later! Good idea!

I’d like to add that you CAN take food through customs.  You just can’t take any intact seeds, nuts, fruits, or vegetables.  Spice mixes are perfectly acceptable.  So if that was a major reason for you, I would reconsider it.  They’ll be fine.

Even though it seems MightySapphire just solved your problem, I’d like to second the mini-cookbooks! I think those could be awesome 🙂

I am in the same boat as you when it comes to DIY overload.

It is so odd, my original idea was to do my gumbo spices with the recipe attached in small glass jars 🙂

Since I already have so much on my plate, we have decided to do a donation to our local animal shelter in lieu of favors. We have 2 dogs, one from a shelter and one free from a family friend, so it really hits home with us.

If you want to cross one more thing off of your DIY list, this might be a great option. You could make the note on the table super cute. We are taking photos of our dogs with a “Thank You” sign
