DIY Cookie Favors

19 Aug

Today I found these cute cookie favors. They are very simple and extremely budget conscious. All you need is a great cookie recipe, paper stock, and ribbon or string. Make it personal with a little message attached and choosing colors that go with your wedding.

This would even be a cute idea if you had the bride and grooms favorite cookies, and in the inside have a little fact about the happy couple for your guest to read!

Want to have a green eco-friendly wedding but don’t know how?

Here are a few tips to get you started:

Invitations

  • Better yet, send out your invitations electronically. Saves money and its good for the earth

Gift Registry

  • Send out your gift registry via email, most places will have your items online for your guests to view
  • Ask guests to donate money to your favorite charity if you don’t need the gifts

Flowers

  • With flowers you are in luck, it is becoming more popular to not even have fresh flowers. Use flowers made from fabric, paper, or even a cluster of brooches for a bouquet. If your heart is set on using fresh flowers, then use ones locally grown in pots and plant them after the ceremony. Put that green thumb to use!

The Dress

  • Buy a hand-me down or used wedding gown, there are several sites, such as Oncewed that sell used wedding gowns.
  • Want a new dress then buy one made with certified organic cotton

Rings!

  • Using a heirloom or recycled ring is the most environmentally conscious, however want something new and sparkly then go for something silver rather than gold, which is very harsh on the earth to find.

Food

  • Serve your guest healthy and fresh organic food and wine
  • Locally produce from your nearest farmers market is a great start

Wedding Tree

10 Aug

We have all heard of family trees, but what about wedding trees? Print or paint a picture of a tree, get different shades of green ink pads, and start your wedding tree.

This is a great way for the bride and grooms family to feel like one and it looks great in a frame for memories.

First Wedding

8 Aug

So in my welcome post I let you all know that I want to be an event planner. Well, I am officially planning my first wedding! I am so nervous, but I am positive it will work out. So details:

  • Day of Coordinator service
  • 250 guests
  • Venue in San Francisco
  • I have to get the bartenders, servers, and baker
  • Also I am going to be doing the favors

One of the ideas that I had for a great favor was cake pops!

I hadn’t heard of them before until recently, and let me tell you they taste great and are super cute.

So I found a great site called Bakerella and they had the recipe for the cake pops.
