I am elated to see the creativity brides have exhibited with regards to wedding favors. Remember how excited you were as a child when you received a ‘blinged’ out goody bag at the end of a birthday party? Adults are no exception — everyone loves a special treat at the end of the night.
You don’t have to spend a ton of money or time finding a memorable favor that tells a story about you as a couple. Some of my favorite edible trends are confections like iced cookies, miniature cakes, custom fortune cookies and brownie pops. If you have a lot of out of town guests who will be traveling for a substantial amount of time, a guest gift bag is a great idea. You can include items like water and instant coffee packets, trail size aspirin packets, hand warmers or mittens for the cold, or mini fans if it’s hot out, a deck of cards, a personalized mix CD of your favorite songs as a couple and seasonal snacks. The small gesture of appreciation will go a long way with your friends and family.
