Treat your guests to home-made cookie favors

Sabrina & Danny's Santa Cruz mountain wedding

I love this idea from my wedding photography clients Sabrina and Danny (the minds behind the iPhone wedding outfits). [Note from Ariel: Aww, remember when Megan had time to photograph people's weddings, before I promoted her to Associate Publisher and told her I wanted her 24 hours a day 7 days a week? Aww.] They served home-made cookies in simple brown paper bags for their delicious down-home wedding favors.

I also love how they used colorful heart-shaped brads to seal the bags and finished off the look with custom labels. These bags could also double as your guests table cards if they're displayed at the start of your reception. If you bring them out at the end, the labels can say "thank you" — a sweet little treat for your guests to enjoy on the drive home.

  1. I have friends who did this – the best part was that their surname is Field… so they labelled them as Mr. and Mrs. Field's cookies.

  2. Love this idea!! I love to bake and have been struggling with the whole favor thing (most everything out there is so overdone, and lets face it, lame), but I really love this idea. THANK YOU!!!

  3. I have seen this before and I love it! I also recently found out that the white paper CD covers can double as a cookie grab bag!
