my wedding Wednesday: our favors

While we're on the subject of sweets... I thought I would talk about the favors for our wedding guests.  We wanted to do something edible because often favors go unused or get tossed (once we got a split of wine we couldn't take on the plane - we try not to check bags).  We went through several idea iterations (look for more to come on those) before we settled on the classic New Orleans treat - the praline.   

our simple wedding favor
We played it safe and ordered one per guest that we anticipated coming (so about 3/4 of those invited).  However, we probably ended up with 1/3 of our order left over at the end of the night.  Oh well!  It was more for us!

In case you are wondering, we went with Leah's Pralines in the French Quarter.  They had the ability to do the custom sticker and were great to work with over the phone (the joys of living out of town). As an added bonus, we got last year's price schedule because their website hadn't been updated in a while when we place our order two months before the wedding. :)
