Bridal Inspiration: Do It Yourself Favors

Hello-hello…it’s Wedding Wednesday and I’ve been in a DIY kind of mood.  Rather than posting a bridal inspiration board that revolves around a color combination, this week I will share with you some of the bits that I’ve found around the web for favors that you can either completely or partially do yourself.

Personally, when it’s my turn to walk down the aisle…I will skip the standard favors of frames and salt-and-pepper shakers.  I would rather give something people can enjoy…gastronomically speaking…than something that will most likely gather dust in some tucked away place.  If you haven’t noticed with some of my posts…I love and adore food, especially sweet bits.  So it won’t come as a surprise that a majority of the items are desserts.

  1. I love the jam idea. Perfect! We had honey but no one seemed to notice…. we had it on a table at the back with little tags……
