I know I’ve hinted about our favors before, though I honestly can’t remember when or find you the link where I cleverly hinted without giving anything away. Sorry. Now that we are two weeks away (ahh!), I opt to tell you about the favors rather than finish making them. If you’re coming to our wedding and want a pleasant surprise, stop reading now! If you can tear your eyes away from my amazing writing, which you can’t, of course, so continue on…
I decided early on that I did, in fact, want favors. It was a long debate since I have never been super excited about favors at weddings I’ve been to (with an exception or two), and I didn’t want to put a lot of effort into something that other people wouldn’t really care about. And is there really one thing that will satisfy everyone? Probably not, which led us to the solution: have favor options!
Several of you guessed from my elusive favor suggestions earlier that we would be providing herbs, and that’s 1/3rd right! It turns out that you can pinch off a portion of a basil plant, leave it in water, and it will root! And so started The Great Basil Reproduction Project. Because, dude, who doesn’t love basil!?
The plus side of having three different options is that we don’t have to make a million of any one of them; we can just make 10-15 of each and we’ll be good to go.
Coming soon: other favor options and how we made them look nice.
How did you decide what favors to have? What was the best favor you ever got at a wedding? What would be your ideal favor to get at a wedding? Aren’t favors sort of silly, but also sort of wonderful?
