I Made My Own Wedding Favors and Here’s What I Would Have Done Differently — Homemade Weddings

When my now-husband, Lucien, and I started planning our wedding we didn’t initially set out to include any favors at all. They just seemed like an added expense that didn’t feel totally necessary to us.

Then we stumbled upon the idea of leaving our guests with a homemade sweet treat to remember our special day. It felt so perfect and we were too excited about the idea to resist. With that, I ordered some cute treat bags on Etsy and set out to make about 200 rosemary shortbread cookies.

Buy the same bags: Wedding Favor Bags, from $30 for 20 at Mavora

There was flour, sweat, and tears, and while I’d bake my own favors again in a heartbeat, there are a few sanity-saving things I’d definitely do differently.
