my day: guestbook and favors
We decided to go with a framed poster for our guestbook:
I bought the poster from etsy seller SparklePower, though I can’t seem to find her now! (Thanks Laura!) We bought the frame at Ikea and took the whole thing to Michael’s to get a custom matte made for $20.
We came to the conclusion that since we were on a budget, giving out favors was simply not necessary. We thought about making homemade cookies to package up for people to take with them, but decided against it as it would have had to been done in the few days before the wedding, and I really didn’t want to have to do anything on those days! So what we decided on doing was to give away the flowers from the centerpieces.
I posted about making these bags here.
We also made little tags asking people to take the flowers but leave the jars, since they were part of our personal collection.
Going this route for the favors saved us a lot of time and money, and no one seemed to care. (Not that they would come up asking for their favor… but still!)
