what are you looking to do??

just remember 99% iof wedding favors wind up in the garbage...

we did bottles of wine and wine accessories

a friend did a CD of their favorite songs (and unless you like their music it winds up inthe trash)

its better not to give anything if its only going to wind up in the garbage...

My niece found lollipop bouquets of flowers at the dollar store . Had a ribbon printed with their names and date on it . It was cute and everyone loved them.

ours was a "trick or treat" bag, dh figured they wouldn't be the "keepsake" I had hoped...so it was pretty low-key

We had spoons filled with kisses & then we wrapped them in tulle & tied them up with ribbon & had a little saying on a tab that said " A spoonful of kisses from the Mr. & the Mrs." everyone liked them. And I had my Bridesmaid help make them. They did take a while to finish cause we made 200 of them. I got my tabs with the saying from Ann's Bridal bargains. I am sure you could make them but I wanted to save a little time so we bought them.  Here's a picture it's not the best but you can get the idea.

we did the candied almonds. just got little baskets and little mesh bags and we put 5 each one. it is an Italian tradition and if you do it you put an odd number in. most the time it is 5 or 7 almonds per bag.

I bought wallet sized picture frames and put the place cards (that I made myself with business card software) in them.

Were you married in 2001? If so, come join us at 2001 Anniversaries.

OUR COLOR WAS PURPLE I GAVE  SCENTED VOTIVE CANDLES AND A BOOK OF MATCHES WHICH WERE ALSO PURPLE AND HAD OUR NAMES AND DATE ON THEM EVERYONE USED THEM AND KEPT THE MATCH COVER AS A KEEPSAKE WHEN THE MATCHES WERE GONE.  I THOUGHT SINCE EVERYONE WE INVITED IS ALWAYS BURNING CANDLES IT WAS PRACTICAL AND WOULDN'T BE WASTED MONEY.
