Gourmet; made from scratch churros. I saw them on Platinum Weddings as part of the desert table and they went over big time. You could wrap them in a cello bag and tie them with a ribbon.

Are you Mexican? or just having it Mexican themed? Also, do you want to know what’s popular in Mexico or what is popular in the US? 

In Mexico, every favor has the Bride and Groom’s name on it.  I’ve seen tortilla warmers, bread napkins, glasses etc. All with the couples name on it.  I don’t really think that’s what you want though.

Mexican art is pretty.  There is a lot of the folk art. Could you do a vase? or a lantern? I am not sure on how much it’d cost though.

Hi butterflybride, I recently got married and incorporated a little bit of my mexican culture into the wedding which was easy since I had it at a hacienda and everyone loved it. I was inspired by this chocolate shop I went to once in Santa Fe. They had the coolest, bright packaging and delicious chocolates. Don’t think they have a website but this is a write up on them.


I ended up doing a chocolate “milagro” heart like the one below. And they were a huge hit! They were both beautiful to look at and delicious to eat.

I’ve also seen these beautiful Mexican tiles used as favors, you could easily write the date of your wedding or your monogram to personalize them!

If you wanted something edible. We had a friend do Mexican Wedding Cookies in a cello bag with a tag that had the bride and groom’s name and wedding date on it.

Great ideas, everyone!  The chocolate milagro is beautiful!

Mmmm…..serving Mexican hot chocolate and pan dulce would be nice too.

If you are talking edible/sweets was going to suggest some sort of pan dulce, but churros from scratch sound yummy!!
