Choosing the right wedding favors can be difficult. What do guests really want? I loved the idea of a candy bar but does anyone eat the candy after all the food that is served during the wedding? Does the candy just go into the trash the next day (well, of course I would hide it and eat it the following week). Looking through Pinterest, I came across “Love Coasters”. I liked that they were simple, pretty and guests would be able to use for years to come.
My mom and I had found a beautiful box design and wrapping to use for our wedding favors but as the wedding drew closer, the elaborate wrapping fell to the way side. So, my Mom came up with using white tissue paper and blue ribbon to wrap 150 coaster sets. Luckily I had a great group of friends, that arrived early in the morning the day of my wedding, to not only wrap all of the favors but helped set-up the ballroom for our reception. Without them, I don’t know how everything would have got done! Photos by Christine Bonnevier
