Since my last post about how important wedding favours are, I’ve been convinced that we should be providing them at our wedding.
That being said I still didn’t want to spend that much money on the favours so I’ve been browsing different do-it-yourself favour ideas and finally came across one that would be extremely inexpensive and oh so cute!
Introducing the “two peas in a pod” wedding favour!
I got the idea off of Martha Stewart Weddings.
The photos they provide on the site are so small it’s hard to see the details but I can picture it perfectly! Basically you would put two round candies (mints or chocolates) together wrapped in green tissue paper and glued to a small piece of cardboard that would be the base. Then you take more green tissue paper and wrap it around the peas and cardboard and twist it at the ends. You attach it to a card with a custom design/lettering/etc. and you’ve got your cute peas in a pod favours! The images pictured show more yellow-y tissue paper than I’d prefer. Imagine it green for our wedding purposes.
We could buy the round mints/candies/chocolates in bulk which wouldn’t cost much at all. Tissue paper and cardboard would be extremely cheap and then I could photoshop the design of the cards and print like eight per page on card stock from Staples or somewhere at a low cost as well. I’d have my bridesmaids sit with me and put it all together one night and then we’ve got ourselves really cute, really cheap wedding favours!!
I love the idea!!
Obviously there’s still a long time to go till the wedding so I may stumble upon other (better?) ideas but so far this is the winner. I may also put extra mints/chocolates on the table so that people can eat those and leave the “peas” alone because if they wanted to keep it as a memory of our wedding it’d be kind of sad looking without the peas, lol.
So what do you think??? :)
