I’m almost positive that we’ve all been to at least one wedding where we’ve gotten favors we don’t know what to do with. I know that I have definitely been to a few. I always take them, because I know the bride and groom meant well, but they usually end up in a box, because I don’t have anywhere else to put them.
Mr. Sea Monkey and I wanted to make sure our favors were unique and something our guests would love. I know you can’t exactly give them something useful, so we wanted them to at least want it. Some people suggest no favors, but I thought it was good to at least try to give them something nice since they were flying out to help us celebrate our big day.
I know a lot of guests like the homemade sauces, cookies, and cakes in jars, but most of our guests were going back on a plane. We didn’t want them getting stopped at security or to have to worry about the jars spilling in their suitcases.
I also felt like we owed them a tad more than a handful of wedding mints or a couple of Hershey’s Kisses. I don’t like nuts, so the almonds were out as well.
