The sentiment of a favor...

You said yes when he popped the question; ironically, that was probably the easiest decision in the wedding planning process. Now come the details, the endless amount of details in every decision you make. It is overwhelming, emotional, exciting and let's face it...simply exhausting.

When it comes time to make the decision of whether to have party favors at your wedding or not, allow me to chime in. I found myself in your shoes nine fleeting years ago. The years have come and gone, filled with wonderful memories, life lessons, two children and a house that has turned into our home. In our home sits my china cabinet. Within the display holds some incredibly special items; however, the most valuable item is the party favor my grandmother held onto from our wedding day.

I found it after she had passed. She had been holding on to it with her most treasured items. Ninety-two years of memories and this was one of her most treasured items? She had saved it to remember being a part our special day. I hold that sentiment very close to my heart.

The sentiment of a wedding favor was not lost on my Grandma and it will not be lost to your loved ones. They will always remember your wedding as a fun day. Those close to you will have your favors as a keepsake to have and to hold. 

Here is a list of the top five wedding favors that your guests will hold dear: 

1. Personalized Honey or Jam Jars -  Honey is such a treasured food, some even call it liquid gold because of its healing properties. And of course, it is delicious.

The message on our featured jars is that you were "Meant to Bee". Here are some of our favorites:
