The first weekend Fiance came down to see me (LDR), he brought strawberry cheesecake truffles.  They are wonderful, large, and 18.99 a pound.  Each guest is getting one truffle, in a 2″ square box, tied with a ribbon and chiffon flower, and has a tag that is their escort card/placecard.

I was anti-favor until I came up with a DIY idea.  My Fiance and I collect Christmas ornaments when we travel.  I’m from Michigan, he’s from Maine.  Both states with lots of lighthouses.  So we made lighthouse Christmas ornaments (yes, for our June wedding).  We made salt dough (salt, flour, water), used a cookie cutter, let it dry, and painted.  They look really nice and people seem to like the sentiment behind them.  I figure most favors are never used, so if people don’t put it on their tree, it’s not like we spent lots of money.  It was actually fun to do.

@envirobride:  Ooh, we made these and they turned out great! You just have to flip them twice a day to make sure they dry all the way through. Otherwise, they get moldy. Making them is quick too – once you get going, you can turn out 30 or 40 of them in an hour.

We will be doing a candy buffet with bags for people to take home sweets at the end of the night.

Not wasting the money on them. Most guest either forget them, throw them away, and or throw them in a far corner of a closet or something. Nothing edible either we are feeding you enough at the reception go home and reflect on the good meal you had 🙂

DIY cake balls. I’ve been testing out my flavors on my co-workers and so far they are a hit. They’ll be in boxes stamped with our names and “Thanks for being a part of our sweet beginning”

Maple syrup candies! The boy is from New Husband so that’s the local touch in our very French wedding.

I’m making boxes with 4 homemade truffles inside. Each truffle will be rolled in a different coating (confectioners sugar, cocoa, nuts) I got clear truffle boxes from clearenvelopes.com. I am going to tie a nice ribbon around that and write the guest’s name on a tag. My favorite part is that I printed out teeny sticker labels that read ‘jasmine&greg’ on the bottom of each truffle cup. I think I put more thought into this than my wedding dress!

Fiance adores honey, and I used to be a French teacher. So we’re giving everyone a 30-gram mini-jar of French honey.  There are 8 different flavors, including lavender, acacia, rosemary and pine-forest honeys.  I’ve made up a key to translate the names (which are in French on the jars) & explain each flavor a bit, so guests can choose a honey that suits them.  It still amazes me that the whole order came in under $2 per guest, including international shipping!
