The East Coast Bride

{Guest Post} : Pretty Packages

By Keri

Good morning! We have an extra special guest post for you, coming from a girl who helped to inspire this blog. You may already know her, and if you don’t, go check out her blog now! Enjoy and get inspired : )

Hello East Coasters! Allison of Engaged & Inspired here blogging from the west coast :) On Engaged & Inspired I blog a lot about crafty, inspiring details and weddings that I just die over. I thought I would carry that trend through on this post and talk about about something I am just dying over right now.

Favors were incredibly important to me when I was getting married. It was a way to give back to the guests who attended my wedding, so I wanted to make sure I gave them something that they would actually leave the event loving to show that they really are special to me.

Right now I’m loving little favors that have pretty packaging and give guests a take-home gift that truly fits the feel of the event. These little bags have my heart right now. I have actually been ordering many different small bags and trying to find fun stuff to put inside them.

The brown paper bag has got to be one of the most under-rated things out there. With some fun writing, or better yet (and my favorite) something stamped, these bags instantly turn into an amazing way to give treats to guests.

Of course the number of ways you can create a cute looking muslin bag is seriously endless. Little elephants…..OMG!

The next question, WHAT to put in these bags?? There are tons of different ideas including candies and desserts, etc. I like the idea of using them as a wrapper for jam, soaps, mini candles, etc. They create such a different look than we have seen.

What are you thinking of doing for favors? Better yet, are you planning on doing favors? Would love to hear your ideas and ways you think these bags would come in handy.
