You say, "yes" to the dress and plan a spectacular occasion ...now don't forget to end it with a "Thank you for sharing our love" wedding cookie favor to keep the sweet memories alive.
Weddings have gone beyond the ritual of walking down the aisle to share blessings or personalized vows - the rite of passage now leads to weekend long celebrations to far off destinations or intimate gatherings uniquely inspired.
Wedding receptions feature handcrafted beers customized for the groom, specialty flowers are flown in for the bride and menu trends for 2018 feature a wink to comfort food favorites from the couple's childhood to customized food stations highlighting local, organic products "farm-to-table" style ingredients, and desserts like "naked cake" and mini bites allowing guests to nibble sweetly while dancing the night away. There is a new spin on music with DJ's now hip and the local band an even bigger rage than trendy cover bands.
While new trends are celebrated, traditional gestures still top the "to do" list before the "I Do's" are sealed with a kiss. The first dance, the toasts, and thank you gifts for guests. For the couple topping the celebrations with a customized gift - wedding cookie favor boxed or wrapped to compliment the theme help add to the decor. Go with a dark chocolate chunk cookie or a traditional oatmeal cookie turned up a notch with almonds, cashews, cranberries and spices. Additionally, consider something more elegant or unique like an etched jar filled with decorated sugar cookies or a keepsake plate with a saying like "All you need is love" and the wedding date. Wedding cookie favors give a wink to tradition but are elevated with personalized gift wrap or a customized keepsake. The sweetest part of all is sending your guests off with a note of appreciation for helping you share you special wedding day celebrations.
