S’more LOVE Wedding Favors

Meg Perotti always seems to photograph the most creative couples, and CJ & Dustin are no exception. We not only adore their wedding but also are in love with their amazing handmade S’mores favors. CJ was kind enough to share with us a tutorial for creating her lovely project, which is cost-effective and was a huge hit for their guests!

The couple was on a modest budget, but had lots of ingenuity and plenty of time.  They wanted their wedding favors to be:

  • Something sweet because they are both sugar addicts
  • Something chocolate because it is their most favorite treat
  • Something interactive for their guests

CJ says:

“The actual ingredients are of minimal cost, so we were able to devote additional money towards packaging, which really made each favor very special.  They are little surprises within a surprise!”

Break graham cracker rectangles in half.  Put four squares into a larger cellophane bag and tie with baker’s twine.  {Note: If you are packaging more than a week in advance, CJ suggests ordering a thicker-grade cellophane bag and using a heat-sealer to help block moisture from the crackers}
