Our Modern Latina Bride Makes DIY Wedding Favors

I am just 10 days away from my wedding and I’m finally starting to get a little nervous! Not necessarily because of the commitment I’m making to the love of my life, but because I want to make sure I get all the little things done for the wedding. I have been so on point with checking things off my list that I don’t want to forget anything now.

I know, I know, it’s not about the wedding and more about our love—but I’ll be honest, I want my wedding to be fabulous! Since my bachelorette party is next weekend, last weekend was my only chance to get my DIY favors done, so I bought some wine, cheese, and crackers and lured my friends to come over and start an assembly line. Instead of escort cards, I'm using jars filled with pink Himalayan sea salt that have the guest’s name and table number on the lid, and as a thank you gift I am handing out lavender and rosebud sachets.

I was actually really surprised to see that we were done putting everything together in only a few hours, but that’s a testament to team work! Tell me what you think:

I, of course, had to convince them with some snacks and (lots of) wine.

I formed a line, one filled the jars, one cut the ribbon, one tied the bows, and I added the labels.

All I did was buy the jars and salt in bulk. I picked up the labels and ribbon at a stationery store, had my designer friend add our names and date, and then I printed!

Now, we were on to the lavender and rosebud sachets.

I bought the tags and a rubber stamp with some gold ink and had my friend stamp away.

Then put them to the side while they dried completely.

In the meantime, my friend mixed the lavender and rosebuds that I also bought in bulk so they would be evenly distributed.

Then we all inserted the sachet ribbon through the thank you tags.

And we were done!

It felt so good to finish them all and to know that I have amazing friends!
