My Fiance and I are getting married in Sweden, where I’m from. Since the majority of the guests are swedish, we wanted to hand out something canadian. We talked about dried cranberries and maple syrup, but it didn’t feel right… then we both got the same idea, ice wine from the Niagara region! We’re so happy with that choise and his parents gave us 8 liters of it just before Christmas. Now we just have to find small bottles (around 40 of them) and lable them – then we’re good to go!

I’m not sure yet.  I’m puttnig a lot of pressure on myself to come up with something that shows how appreciative we are of those who’ve chosen to travel all the way to our wedding…it’s hard to do that!

@Utopia4us:  Cute idea!  I’d love to investigate something like this – can you send the vendor’s name?

@cbgg:  sorry I didn’t log back in til now! I used an etsy vendor dellcovespices. I was very happy with them. Communication was great, and they custom designed the label for me to match the rest of my wedding stuff.

We’re not doing any favors at the reception, but I feel like there are a bunch of things that take the place of the traditional favors:

– welcome bags (nice beach bags) filled to the brim with things (medicine, koozies, local rum cakes, snacks, personalized playing cards, etc)

– sandalwood fans at reception

– escort cards will be those tiny messages in a bottle, so if someone wanted a silly keepsake they could keep it

I considered leaving the local rum cakes out of the welcome bags and using them as favors at the reception instead, but decided against it.  I just don’t think it makes sense to put another dessert on the table when our menu has a dessert course and we’re also serving wedding cake.  I think I’d be too disappointed if people left them behind.

I also really like the idea of a scratch off lottery ticket with a local coin in a glassline envelope.  Cheap and cute and fun.  But my fiance thought it was cheesy so we didn’t do it.  (Sad face.)

Thanks!  I also forgot to say that we’re sending out nice fabric luggage tags that a good friend of mine helped me sew (she and I also made all the beach bags – ugh!) with a pretravel brochure a few weeks before the wedding.  So…I totally adore all of our guests and want them to have an amazing time, but I didn’t feel much pressure to throw in a “favor”.

We are not going to have favors at the wedding itself, but we are doing welcome bags in each room.  Our Destination Wedding is in St. Kitts so our welcome bags will have a bottle of St. Kitts rum (made and bottled on-island) and Ting (a Caribbean soft drink), along with welcome letter, map, itenerary, nearby activities, etc.
