- Wedding: August 2013
Hello Everyone, Now when it comes to wedding favors, I like to see favors that people are going to use just not throw away or put in a drunk drawer. So that brought us to candy…or something else out of the box. Well, you see I love wine, I love all kinds of wine and so do my parents (we arent alcoholics or anything, but we do love our wine). So my parents where talking about heading to Madison to go to Trader Joe’s (grocery store) to pick up some two buck chuck. “Two Buck Chuck” is this really good wine that Trader Joe’s sells from California, it is called two buck chuck because in California it sells for only $2.00! Well here in Wisconsin they charge a little bit more and its $2.50/bottle and the wine is good! Well that got me thinking, $2.50 for a favor…thats not bad, I could do that!! We decided on doing a bottle of wine/couple and/or family. We invited 200+ guests to the wedding so we thought if we purchased 8 cases of wine (96 bottles) this should be sufficient. Which it was…because we are at 148 guests (with 6 guests not RSVP’d yet). So it works out perfect. We then took to the task of taking off the labels. This was quite tedious and thankfully my fiance did most of this work (yey him). We then purchased labels with our photos/names on them for a good price online and placed them on the newly bare bottles. So for our favors we spent $275 (WOO HOO) Im pretty excited! Hope you like them!
