Jen P – Autumn Apples
“We’re being married in the fall and I originally knew exactly what I wanted to do – fall-themed candy and/or caramel apples! That being said, I’ve been sort of scared away from it because it’s a bit of work to make sure they look great – I have perfected my technique, and done the taste test (my fav part!) but I was mostly concerned about packaging options, and how well they will keep during the reception. I thought that more people would do this for favors, but so far I haven’t seen any wedding sites selling a “kit” of any kind – maybe you guys should look into it!”
Shannon J – Sunflower Power
“We are getting married next July and our colors are sunbeam yellow and ivory. I want to go with a sunflower theme for the wedding but I am having a hard time finding favors for my theme. One idea that I had was to take wine glasses and fill them with yellow gel candle wax and cover with a sunflower shaped label with our names and wedding date. The label is the hardest part of this task.”
Sara P – Jammin’ Favors
“Our wedding theme/colors are champagne and lavender! I had the idea to buy Mason Jars and fill them with grapes and blueberries (just for decoration) and wrap champagne ribbon around the top. Then find a good recipe for homemade grape and blueberry jams and make labels for the tops of the jars. Our wedding is in March and I can remember as a child going to my grandparents’ house in the winter time and there basement being filled with all different types of fruits, vegetables and jams canned in Mason Jars. So it seemed very fitting to tie an old family tradition into our wedding.”
