- Wedding: October 2011
So, I’ve been trying to figure out what kind favours I should do for my October wedding. I knew I wanted them to be food related and was toying with an idea of making little jars of jam or baking cookies as wedding favours. Cookies would go great, since my Save the Dates included custom cookies and it would continue the theme.
I kept putting off deciding on favours and I am so glad I did that. I am a part time Food Photographer, it’s a side job which I enjoy, but it’s not bringing me a lot of money. So, I was contacted about ten days ago by a little cookie Bake Shop which wanted me to do photos for their menu, but they didn’t have money to pay me. I suggested an exchange of services. They are going to do custom monogrammed individually wrapped cookies as wedding favours for me as well as a tray of a few dozens mini cookies for morning tea/coffee before the ceremony and all of that in exchange for my services. I normally charge more than the cookies would cost them, but I was so happy to have those things crossed off my list, that I didn’t mind at all.
Very excited to have monogrammed cookies. They are going to be in a shape of a Maple Leaf with icing and decorations in our Wedding Colours.
