wedding favor containers & etsy.com

At Michael’s tonight, buying the rest of my centerpiece vases and candles, I came upon quite a few interesting vessels for favors. The now very popular Chinese Takout box was ever-present in a million different colors and sizes, ranging from 79 cents to $1 per piece and it can be embellished by stickers (karen smallbone for a modern look), ribbon, string, beads, hand-written names and everything in between. A new thing I saw was the mini mason jar, which I cannot for the life of me find a picture of. There was a taller sleek mini jar and a short, plump one. Both were cute, but I would have opted for the taller one. The only reason I didn’t purchase them tonight: I have no clue what to put inside my favor boxes/jars/bags. No idea. I am not interested in jordan almonds, the traditionalist’s choice; not into candles, bath salts, soaps or gels; not really into candy, either but I’m open to it if worse comes to worse. I am stumped at what to put into all of the cute items I come across and am waiting for inspiration to hit before I spend $1/item for the simple container!

Etsy has proven useful tonight for various wedding items:

These adorable tags by accessoryalamode are on the pricey side for just tags at $6.00 a pop, but are hand stamped antique brass and could be used as keychains for favors, thus eliminating the need for favor containers altogether. I think the design is universally appealing and would look good holding anyone’s keys. We could put our names and the date on it or even just the date, like so: 08172007.

If I was planning on the soap route, I would definitely look into soapylove’s petite soap flavors. They’re adorable and come in a variety of shapes, colors and patterns. At 75 cents each they’re a steal.

And that is my favor report for this evening.

Website VS Travel Newsletter

Save the Dates almost DONE. Now I need to update the website people will go to after receiving thier save the dates. Do you think it’s okay to only give info on the website or do we need to do a newsletter type thing like a lot of other brides on theknot.com have done for their destination wedding? I don’t know. I think all of the folk we are inviting have access to a computer and are fairly internet savvy.
I don’t want the extra cost/headache of putting something together.

Is the website enough?
