Yet again, there have already been a few weekends this year that I wished it didn’t take a 20-hour travel day to get to the US West Coast. Had it been the usual 2 hour flight from SF to Las Vegas, I would have been at Colette’s Bachelorette party in a heartbeat. I was sad I couldn’t make it, but figured I could send a little something special for the bride-to-be. Plus I wanted to remind my friends that I do exist all the way over here in Switzerland and wish I could be there. I considered sending a glass statue of the infamous bachelorette party mascot that I found, but I worried about it arriving safely in one piece. I ended up going the more PG route.
First up: wedding favors!
Wedding favors are a tricky thing. Usually they are at the bottom of the wedding to-do list, which also means the end of the budget. You want something that your guests will actually take with them, because what’s the point of giving it if you have 100 leftovers? You also need something budget friendly, and something to reflect the two of you as a couple. I found that my favorite favors to receive are edible or useful as well as easy to travel with. Which is where I got the criteria when making my own wedding favors last year.
