There are some wedding traditions that I quite frankly thought were plain old stupid, i.e. the bouquet toss or just plain wasteful, like printed napkins. I had wedding favors on that list as well. I can’t remember when I’ve taken a favor home from a wedding that was useful or that I could locate in my house 24 hours after the wedding had taken place.
Well, I might be re-thinking that notion. Myron and I went to a wedding reception a week or so ago and got the most creative favor I’d seen in a very long time. The bride and groom had gotten married in Jamaica the week before and their gift to their guests was a jar of jerk seasoning with a recipe for jerk chicken attached! It was so neat!
Myron and I were quite excited because being foodies ourselves and with him being the resident chef, we were eager to try it. The reception was Friday night and we had jerk chicken and rice for Sunday dinner. Turned out pretty good too.
So I am re-thinking having some sort of favor but it would have to be more creative and not so cookie cutter and very inexpensive.
My initial thought is to do a candy bar. It’s pretty trendy right now in the wedding world but can be done pretty cheaply. Several types of penny candy/gum and containers to take it away in. I might go that route…we’ll see..at least it’s a favor that would actually get used.
