I’m not engaged yet but I love, love, love the idea of doing something with s’mores.

As of right now, we are using dreamcatchers as our favors.

My Fiance is half european, half Native American (literally) and since we are having an Orthodox ceremony and Macedonian wedding reception, I really wanted to incorporate his mother’s side as well. My family on both sides came from Wales and Sweden back in the 1600’s (I’m really into genealogy can you tell?) and aside from having Swedish flags as favors, I thought this was very different and very cool.

If insted we want something more “traditional” I’ll just get teal boxes and wrap them up in coral ribbon and put jelly beans or salt water taffy in the boxes. But I’m pretty stuck on the dreamcatchers.

We are doing stemless wine glasses with our logo on it. Also, krispy kreme dounts individually bagged with a royal blue bow on each (our color) with royal blue icing on them. We were totally excited when krispy said they would do this for us. They are doing 140 of them bad babies for 75 bucks!

We are giving out glazed donuts! Either in a box or a bag with a label that says “mmm-donut” -Homer Simpson, since that is FH favorite show, and we both love donuts! We were actually eating them when he proposed haha

Fiance is really into home brewing and right as we speak we have 20L of mead stashed away in a fermenter waiting to be bottled. All the guests will get a bottle and we will be using the remaining for toasting (instead of champagne)

Fun fact of the day: You get the term ‘honeymoon’ is from the tradition of mead at a wedding though Northern and Western Europe. The bride and groom would be supplied with a months worth of mead which was said to result in a fertile marriage (wonder why ;P)

We will do the traditional Jordan almonds, as is customary in my Italian family.  Everybody has them– it’s expected. Personally I never really eat these when I get them, but I want to please the older folks:) To fancy them up I am going to put them in these little bags:

I got 50 of these for $.99 (and free shipping) from Ebay.

Then, for my 2nd favor I am (*fingers crossed there ends up being money for it in the budget*) a Shutterbox photobooth.  The guests will be able to take copies of their photos as favors, too.  I’ve heard such great things about having photobooths, and I would love to have all of the different, fun pics!

@Mrs.ChubbyBunny: love this.

We had a flip flop basket and hand fans for our guests since we held our reception in our backyard on a very warm day. I do believe my DH also gave away parts of our centerpieces, specifically the flowers in mason jars and our engagement pictures in black frame.

My best friend made mason jar cupcakes. They were delicious. I ate three. THREE.

I’m doing wine glasses and beer mugs.  The beer mugs will just have the handle’s and the bottom painted black to go with our color scheme for the men and the wine glasses have black pink and white polka dots on them.  I love them! lol

@MissTatas: Those cupcakes in a mason jar are amazing! I have never had them but am drooling at their picture. Do you happen to know how they were made?

 

We are having a summer wedding but my heart has always wanted a fall wedding with caramel apples (but Fiance was married in the fall in the past so I wanted to shy away from that). We are leaning towards doing our own jam…although now I am in love with the S’mores on a stick…
