Something I can consume.
Something I can consume.
we did tea from Malaysia, in a little bag I sewed, made of Malay batik from a producer we both know–then put them at each table. No one complained,* they were small, consumable, and from somewhere we both care about. I loved that they were CHEAP (probably well less than $1/each), and ideally, useful.
*my sister complained about tying ribbon around the bags!
Little liquor bottles are also cute, perhaps one that will tie into your theme. I agree with the edible.
My fiance and I are in the beer industry, so he is brewing a wedding beer specifically for us and we are labeling it with our engagement photo. I even got a bunch of ribbon to tie bows on 200 bottles
I’ve seen individual bottles of olive oil with seasonings in them. Of course your guests will use them to cook or with bread to dip in! yum!
Cupcake Mix Favors
Hi Kusinera, I googled "big island cookies", do you know the exact website or number? I see a couple that match, one with chocolate dipped shortbread called Big Island Candies or Big Island Delights …. I don’t know what to look for!
Thank you for the great ideas.
Gonna go look these up
i think this is unlikely to receive/give, but we’re having as favors one monogrammed hand towel per family/couple/single friend… they were only like 50 cents each and my lovely Future Sister-In-Law is monogramming them for free… so i think it’s not something they’re gonna throw away as soon as the wedding is over and also, they’re useful!
i don’t have any pictures yet of my own, but this are very similar:
Kusinera, your cookie gobblings story cracked me up!!!!
I agree with the others, something edible is always good.
A friend also made a custom CD with special songs to her and her Fiance, as well as songs they had on the playlist for the reception. I still have it and listen to it once in a while.
I vote for edible! For our wedding (in Hawaii) we’re going with pineapple shaped shortbread cookies with either a kona coffee bean or piece of mango or pineapple in the middle. they’re already invidually wrapped so we’re just throwing a few of those in a mesh bag and voila. easy breezy . . . DONE. 🙂 Is there something in your area that is well known? Or something that "represents" the two of you (we’re both cookie people)? How’s about a childhood favorite snackie or two?
