Broke-Ass Tag: wedding favors


Affiliate Disclaimer NewAs if it even needs mentioning, we’re suckers for some yummy food and delish beverages. I mean, #duh, right? Natch, we like to spread the wealth and share our fave goodies with our friends, family and even wedding guests (we’ve been known to espouse the concept that favors should be skipped unless they can be eaten or drank).

The Belgian Chocolate Covered Indulgence gift set comes packed with eight gourmet Oreos dipped in chocolate and candies, four chocolate dipped gourmet brownies, four chocolate dipped pretzel sticks and six gourmet chocolate dipped graham crackers.

Carry On Cocktail Kit in Old Fashioned from Amazon

Carry On Cocktail Kit in Old Fashioned, $15.99 from Amazon

Traveling these days can be a little hectic and far from luxurious, and if your crew is coming from afar for your nuptials, you might want to treat them with this kit for the journey back (or pre-stock them for the trip to you). The Carry On Cocktail Kit comes with all the makings necessary to whip up two stellar Old Fashioneds, while still leaving your seatbelt buckled (though the tray table may not be in the upright position). Make your homies’ flights a little more enjoyable, and they’ll remember your wedding as the best ever.

    Affiliate Disclaimer NewI’ve had the idea of carnival weddings on my mind ever since Rachel revealed that would be the theme for her Ohio nuptials. I’ve seen a few weddings with the theme before and have always loved the fun, colorful, eclectic vibes and gorgeous blend of whimsy and romance. It’s kind of impossible not to feel like a kid at heart when attending an event with a carnival theme, and what better time to incorporate games into a celebration? But finding those little extras to help pull the whole thing together can be a little tough.Have no fear, though, my dear, because our homies over at Beau-Coup have tons of the little details that can make a big impact on your wedding day, and they have no shortage of goodies that would be perfect for a carnival wedding.

    I'm kind of a huge fan of a bride and groom rocking sunglasses on their wedding day. Now, not necessarily during the ceremony or during some of the more sweet, serious moments, but certainly while hanging around at cocktail hour and of course on the dance floor and photo booth because, ... #duh. Even better? When said sunglasses are pimped just for you by our homies…
