6 Favors That I Want from Your Wedding

I’m not trying to be sassy, but I’m not lying either. If one of these gift ideas is not available at your wedding, I may be severely disappointed. And so will your guests. Because who doesn’t love sweets and comfort??

  1. To-Go Cookie Buffet

favor 1

Ask Aunts or cousins that are not too involved in the wedding festivities to make their favorite treats! Or go for the catered route with cookies from your favorite bakery.

  1. Customized Shot Glasses

favor 2

It’s the perfect opportunity to show off your new Monogram as well!

  1. S’mores Kit

favor 3

This is also perfect for an “after-tizer” for those who stay around long into the night! Consider having a fire going outside as well!

  1. Flip Flops

favor 4

Don’t you remember prom? By the end of the night, the high heels were long gone. But now your guests won’t feel bad for ditching them, and the celebrating can really begin!

  1. Personalized Chapstick Labels

favor 5

Okay, so maybe not everyone is as addicted to this stuff as I am, but they sure do come in handy! No one keeps up with these for very long, so an extra can never hurt!

  1. Candy Bar

favor 1

Now you can go one of two ways with this: either use you and the groom’s favorite treats, or keep it color coordinated with your specific colors. Either way, consider getting personalized M&M’s! They are definitely crowd pleasers.

This app answers all your questions about etiquette, the ceremony, reception, fashion, DIY, and answers to nearly any other potential problem that may be thrown your way. With the answers from “Ask Carley,” you will know that you are getting up-to-date information, so there will be no need to rely on mom’s “back in my day” advice.

  1. The Wedding Snap App (FREE)

How many times have you heard yourself asking your friends to send you the pictures y’all had taken on their phone? Or people asking the same of you? I feel like I am not the only one that struggles with this ALL THE TIME. Even with the simplicity of messaging, it still seems like such a pain. Luckily with the use of this app, all of your guests’ photos go straight to an online album. You won’t miss a single moment. The app even sends reminders to keep taking pictures if they haven’t done so in a while. PLUS it has the capabilities of sending the photos to a live stream that can be showing on the big screen throughout the reception!
