wedding details reveal: favors

05 April 2012
with just about six weeks until the wedding, i figured it was time for another wedding details reveal!

i am so excited and happy that we finally decided on favors for our guests! my original plan had been mini bottles of rose champagne, but it wasn't the most cost effective and it's not very inclusive, since we'll have children and a couple of people who don't drink at the wedding. 


but knowing we wanted to give our guests something edible (i've read they're the most popular favors), i figured we should try something sweet. i've always loved macarons, for their lovely pastel shades and delicate texture, so i contacted the bakery who is creating our wedding cake to see what options they had. while there is no peach available, we decided on rose (pink) and vanilla bean (cream) macarons. they will be packaged in clear boxes, styled after the ones from the pierre herme boutique in paris.

i am so excited about this detail and hope our guests love them!
