For my wedding I knew I wanted to DIY my favors. I didn't want them to take years to make or be super expensive either. Since it was a winter wedding I decided to do hot chocolate and marshmallows!
I get my digital version of my wedding pictures early next week (yay!!) but in the mean time here is a picture the photographer grabbed of the favors lined up so pretty!
I got the bags from Michaels, and used leftover ribbon from my wedding invitations to tie on the escort cards. I cut the cards out using my Silhouette and then used a hole punch to make then into tags.
Laying all the cards out was very helpful for making up my seating chart!
Inside the favor bags was a single serving of hot chocolate and a heart shaped marshmallow!
I got the Marshmallows from Madyson's Marshmallows, and would totally recommend them!! I had considered trying to make them myself, but I just had terrible visions of me two days before the wedding covered in gelatin and marshmallow gunk trying to crank out a hundred homemade marshmallows. I decided to leave that labor of love to someone who knew what they were doing!!!
Sorry for the crappy phone pic but you can kind of get an idea of how cute the heart marshmallow looks in a mug!
We also included a little cheesy note. Like my verbage? I thought I was so clever. hah.
Since the Marshmallows are homemade they don't have a bunch of preservatives in them, so I didn't get them shipped to me until two days before the wedding. I'm lucky to have some loving parents who helped me throw these all together! I packaged the hot chocolate and made the tags but my mom made the insert for me and her and my dad packaged them all up. My dad took care of tying all the pink little bows, hah!
Budget wise - they were not too expensive to make. The marshmallows worked out to be a little less than dollar each (they were worth it though, very yummy!), the hot chocolate was like .16 cents a serving, and the bags were like .50 cents each.
Hopefully the guests enjoyed them! I know hubby and I have been enjoying the leftovers!! What did you have for favors at your wedding??
