So in the beginning of all of the planning FH and I had sat down and discussed a few things:
1) How to incorporate the kids, besides being in the wedding (Sand Ceremony)
FH did not want to do the candy, the CD (which was #1 on my list) , nor the Bottle of Wine. Sooooo we came up with the idea of doing a small replica of our Sand Ceremony as favors. I’ve found some nice small glass corked bottles at http://www.save-on-crafts.com and I will attach a nice poem or something indicating everyones color and meaning.
So ladies what are you doing for your favors????

Oh I think the sand favors is really sweet!
We’re donating to a rare cancer research fund. A few years ago Future Mother-In-Law was diagnosed, and luckily quickly beat it and is now in remission. It’s incredibly rare (I can’t even remember the name of it), so it’s always overlooked by cancer researchers. We’re just putting a little sign about it by the guest book.

We are having a candy buffet, so that will be a part of the favoring, we will also have small favor boxes at each seat with fortune cookies in them. We will have mini water bottles with personalized labels on them too.
I’ve heard that the most “favored” gifts are those that are edible…so to make sure my money spent was well worth spending, we are going with all edible favors!

I like the hot chocolate and apple pies. I usually only like edible favors, or else they will go to waste. Donations are my fave, since I feel like thats better than getting a trinket. We are not doing favors but offering a late night buffet instead.

We are having Succlecent plants in these cute navy blue pots and then they will be placed in a navy blue organza bag. They will also serve as Escort Cards. My Mother-In-Law is a florist so she has started to plant all of the plants!

We are making a donation to the animal shelter where we got our dog. The shelter provided cards with our words and their mission. We’re having them attached to little paw print shaped cookies that a local cookie company is making. We’re also doing a candy table.

My fiance and I always have scrambled eggs on Friday nights, so our favour is going to be a heart whisk with a picture of our dinner (scrambled eggs, sweet potato home fries and roasted swiss chard) with the recipe. I’m hoping its useful enough people will take it and use it, and I love how it’s just so us.
