Newport Nuptials: Thanks for Coming!

Mr. Starfish and I were going to skip favors all together. We went all out for our nautical-themed welcome bags and planned a brunch for our guests. We thought those were the best ways to thank our guests for traveling to Rhode Island and celebrating with us. Then one day BIL Starfish came home with a Shuckie and we decided we needed to have them.

If you haven’t been able to tell by our welcome bags (and pretty much every other post I have shared), I am in love with nautical- or shore-themed touches. These little guys were too cute to pass up.

We bought the shuckies and even included custom fortunes. We thought they were great. Then I thought they seemed a bit random by themselves, so I felt the need to get a second favor.

We purchased custom bags from that matched our OOT bags and napkins. Then we purchased cookies from BJs and tied them up with some ribbon.

I love a late night snack, so hopefully they were a sweet way to end the night for our guests.

Do you plan on doing favors? What’s the best one you’ve ever received?

    Cookies and snacks are the BEST favor in my opinion. I feel like guests spend a lot of time at weddings waiting for dinner to be served, or dancing and needing a little pick-me-up later on. So I think this was a great idea. I think the best favors I’ve gotten were the cookies I got at Mrs. Cherry Pie’s wedding. Homemade at the local bakery, they were delicious!
