Ask your destination venue for help finding fun local favors #Reception Advice#destination wedding#island#steal-this-idea#wedding favors February 6 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photo by Aditi Garg Stephanie and Chris had an amazing destination wedding in Honduras, and one of the challenges was finding location-specific trinkets that would work as favors. Thankfully, Stephanie was able to ask the resort for help and found lots of fun items: Enjoli was one of the ladies from Paya Bay that really helped pull the reception together. She helped me get local trinkets like coconut candies, magnets made from old tin roofs, cigars, and bracelets, which I put into gift bags that I made out of leftover fabric from my dress. So if you're looking for a local flair to your destination wedding favors, don't forget to check in with your venue to see what they recommend. You could end up with a kick-ass bag of goodies.

We gave our guests beach hats and raffia fans to keep cool with at our destination wedding. We put them in raffia bags we had stamped our wedding logo on. It was awesome to see everyone in these goofy hats, and even cooler to see the hats and bags out at the beach with sunscreen in them for the rest of the week! The only issue was getting all that stuff to mexico. Luckily we had a few friends who werent bringing much stuff, so we stuck some of those favors in their suitcases. 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
