When clients ask me what type of favors I recommend for their wedding or event, I always recommend something consumable.  Guests tend to enjoy something they can eat – whether it’s a sweet or a savory item.  The method of presentation can vary depending on the particulars of the event.

Many times, we have placed small boxes of candy at each place setting so guests see them as soon as they take their seat.

Other times, we would display the items for guests to pick-up as they depart the celebration.

One fun way to incorporate the favors into the event is to have a late-night snack offered or displayed after the dancing and merriment has ensued.

We offer a Candy Buffet service that can be personalized for the event whether by selecting a certain color(s) of candy or a special theme (Old Time Candy, Couples Favorites, etc.).  We usually provide a type of cellophane bag – clear or in the events colors – so that guests can make their own goody bag.

For a truly Southern wedding, particularly in the Atlanta area, clients love to have items brought in from The Varsity.  Whether it’s their famous fried pies or their hot dogs – guests always go wild for these treats. Or what about Krispy Kreme Doughnuts?  These go so fast you would think the “Hot Now” sign was lit above them.

Who doesn’t love COOKIES?  One of my all-time favorite favors idea was my clients Family Favorite’s Cookies.  Several family members were known for a specific type of delicious cookie that they regularly made, so the bride asked them too make their specialty and then we placed them with labels indicating the type of the cookie and the person who made it.

Maybe you don’t want to have friends or relatives make their specialty cookies, but you still want to have a cookie display, a great option is to order some delicious cookies and even brownies from The Christie Cookie Co.  They offer a variety of flavors of some of the most delicious cookies I’ve ever tasted.  You can even utilize their products for Guest Welcome bags because you can order their products in a range of  sizes in perfect tins that you can personalize with your wedding logo.

Since it’s summer, what could be more refreshing than a gourmet Popsicle? King of Pops provides an on-site cart with a variety of flavors. They are always a huge hit. Another hot weather treat is the Dreamy Gelato cart. Guests had a delicious time selecting their flavors and toppings.

A couple of other fun options that have been well received by guests are a popcorn buffet and a gourmet cotton candy station.  These unexpected treats will please guests, young and old, and will have your guests remembering your event with sweet visions.

Rain Drops and Roses for Rachel & Rusty!

The site for the wedding of Rachel & Rusty was Lake Lanier Islands Resort, Pineisle Pointe.  The setting is beautiful, with vast views of the lakes and other nearby islands.  Although the weather prohibited us from having the ceremony outside as planned, the location was changed to Pineisle Center where Rich Larsen of Creative Events by Sunflowers, created an intimate setting with a lovely Chuppah as the focal point.  The style of the decor was Rustic Elegance and Rich created beautiful decor that fit the theme perfectly.  The colorful florals mixed with natural elements like birch wood vases and cut tree disks gave the rustic look, but in such an elegant style.  

In addition to being Rustic Elegance, another theme was music.  The couple selected some of their favorite songs and instead of numbering the tables, they named them with the titles from their list of favs.  On each table, there was an informational document that gave the name of the song, the artist and the lyrics.  At each place setting, a slip of paper containing lyrics from a portion of the song was placed.  Throughout the reception, many of these songs were played by the band. 

Since the Groom and his family are from New Orleans, it was fitting that the Groom’s cakes were traditional da Bouche.  They were actually flown here from New Orleans so that the family was assured they were the “real thing”.  

This wedding was definitely a hit if you have a sweet-tooth, because not only was their wedding cake and da Bouche cake, there was also a Gelato Cart that offered a variety of yummy flavors for guests to enjoy!!

As a favor, guests were treated to heart-shaped cookies and cartons of milk as they left the reception – which was a huge hit. 

Other vendors we were pleased to partner with were Glen of Pixel This! photography, Bulletproof Band, Rabbi Lebow, Dreamy Gelato and The Baking Grounds.  

We wish Rachel & Rusty a lifetime of Happiness!!!!
