Woo for favours!

(I haven't decided what we're using OR if we're using any yet.. I am a terrible bride to be.)

I think I would go simple with the Personalised Favour Ribbon.. because then it applies to whatever we decide to use!

We might have to cut favors for budget reasons or go with something like homemade treats. But I really like the globe wine glass stoppers-would really fit our travel theme

The M&M tins and the confetti toss are my faves...

Lexilooo said...

I love the mini gumball machines! Too cute!

And, two months?! Yay!

meeyeehere said...

Personalized Two Tier Mini Cakes are too cute!! Those are terrific ideas! I have been to weddings where I could not even get a piece of cake because they ended up with too many guest!Wow, this place is great!!Count me in!

Anonymous said...

I love the idea of the mini oil and vinegar bottles, but probably wouldn't be able to afford them.... The personalized glass jars are also pretty cute and I would think that guests might actually use them, which is a total plus!

The wedding is so close, how exciting!!!

rachel said...

Ah! i saw this and i was all "OMG I WAS GOING TO ORDER SOMETHING FROM THERE!"

and that something was this.

it's eco friendly confetti! how genius, really. and how perfect would it be for the beach!? Ahhh. must have, but i can't justify the expense when i just paid $600 for a freaking ARCH. really. sigh.

love this.

Doniree said...

Ack! That stuff is adorable! I know what I'd buy, but it'd be a present for a blogger, so I can't tell you! But ok, I'd get this for me:

Because it's cute, and it's useful! :)

I love the glass photo coasters for my 2011 summer wedding! So cute!

Ashley said...

We are counting down the same time, almost! Except mine is my due date and yours is your wedding - WOAH, life changes!! :)

I love the "Cute as a button" soap or the baby shower brownie pops. Mmm, brownies!

lspoon said...

I would have to say that my favorite favors are the boxes upon boxes of votive/floating candles we made for our wedding (almost 3 years ago).

I had such a great time making them. They even matched our unity candle.

But then...we forgot to tell people that they were favors and could be taken home so we ended up with 3-4 boxes of them.

I try to give them away when we can but it's hard to pass out a candle that has a giant V on it. You know?

Ooh! They could be trophies! V for Victory and what have you! :)

Kourtney said...

I know you posted it but those starfish wine stoppers are to die for! I would get the sea shell ones as well :) I think your love for wine has rubbed off on me a bit, but there are no complaints here.

The round paper lanterns are quite adorable as well...

Great site!

kateastrophe said...

I am in love with a lot of that stuff but I am ALL about those salt and pepper shakers! So fab!

lspoon said...

aaaaaannnnnnnnddddddd I totally must have dozed off when I was nearing the end of your post b/c I did not understand what you asked us. Or maybe I was just too excited to tell you about my dozens of votives...either way...want a votive? :)

My favorite Beau Coup favor would have to be: http://tinyurl.com/24ksces

Got to stick to the candle theme! :) And kissing fishies are so cute!

I love these mini palms:

I'm a palm tree freak and though I'm not getting married anytime soon, these would be fun to have at a pool party as a favor, or perhaps my 27th birthday party =)

Who? Me? said...

Lspoon reposted on Facebook so I clicked over! I really liked the love dove salt and pepper shakers. I routinely call my husband love dove and I collect salt and pepper shakers! Double win!

Ashalah said...

I may have squealed over those starfish wine stoppers. Starfish are my FAVORITE. :) I also really like the wine cork candles. It would make my wine habit so pretty...

Awesome giveaway!

I'm definitely all about food, so I went straight to the edible favors. The Brownie pops with tuxedo & dress designs are adorable. But the monogrammed brownie pops? SO BEAUTIFUL.

Ali said...

Cute wine stoppers? I'm SO in!

michelle woo said...

I like the salt and pepper shakers! OMG it would be so cute if the couple's initials were S & P.

Christi said...

I love the personalized sunscreen to go in a welcome basket. http://www.beau-coup.com/personalized-sunscreen-wedding-favor.htm

Perfect idea for a summer wedding in Colorado! Which is what I am hopefully having next summer!

Christi said...

Just tweeted about the personal sunscreen idea from @christri

Love the personalized sunscreen ideas - http://bit.ly/aUGxJr http://www.prettysandyfeet.com/2010/06/lovely-giveaway.html

alyssa said...

Wow that was really difficult, I could definitely pick about 10 things! One thing the stood out was the Mini Oil and Vinegar Bottles, because they are personalized AND they are very very usable and not a cliche wedding favor. Like!

Akirah said...

I'm not much of a wedding person, so I looked at the birthday favors. Sorry. I hope that doesn't defeat the purpose.

Anyway, I love the hand sanitizer and the custom fortune cookies. So cute!

The Falling Leaf or Snowflake Bookmarks are lovely- something people can use and would be a great for me beacuse a. I love to read b. I've always wanted a fall or winter wedding.

Jenn said...

I like something more practical, so I'm loving the Bamboo Coasters. And eco-friendly too!

Celeste said...

I like the personalized playing cards favors

We got heart wine stoppers for our wedding guests and it turns out it's not that great to use because once you put the stopper in... there's a big chance that it won't fit in the fridge. :-/ I use mine on an empty wine bottle that's on display on top of our fridge.

Allison said...

Such cute stuff! I'm not sure what message the hand sanitizer would send (maybe for two immunologists in love?), but I think the chapstick is actually a cute idea for say, an outdoor California wedding... and that way you could always use the leftovers for yourself!

Rachel said...

I love the Mini Bride & Groom Brownie Pops!! So cute! :) Hopefully I'll have a wedding of my own to plan soon ;) ;)
