Tea Themed Wedding Favors
We at Bridology love the idea of a unique, customized favor that suits the ambiance of the wedding. One of our favorite ideas that we’ve seen is saying thank you with tea – a teacup or mug filled with cookies and artisan tea bags. The tea themed favor is practical, useful and cohesive, and it works wonderfully for Spring and Summer garden or vintage theme weddings. By altering the type of mug or teacup and interchanging the cookies, the favor can actually be tweaked to suit a wide variety of wedding styles and themes.
For vintage or English garden theme weddings, rummage through garage sales, second hand stores and online auctions like eBay to find amazing deals on old patterned teacups. The beauty is in having a wide assortment of mix and match styles so each guest takes home a unique, beautiful keepsake they can use. Winter weddings can provide guests with a cozy mug holding fudge brownies and tea bags, warm comfort food for a snowy evening.
Finding enough cookies, mugs and tea bags for your favors is as simple as buying in bulk at discounted prices. Even the finest cookies and organic tea bags can be purchased at wallet-friendly prices when you buy in bulk. Warehouse stores like Sam’s Club or Costco are great places to find gourmet cookies, but are lacking in the gourmet tea department.
Instead, try heading online to Mighty Leaf. The company is well-known for their super high quality, organic and delicious teas, perfect for gifting. 100 bags of their organic artisanal teas cost under $50, which breaks down to only 50 cents per 100 favors. Plus, their Marrakesh Mint flavor (a tasty mint green tea), is now on sale for only $34 per 100 tea bags – a virtual steal for quality organic tea. Each of their teabags comes individually packaged and is made up of little silken pouches.
To package your favors, simply add your chosen dessert inside the teacup and then place a teabag or two tucked in next to the cookies. Add cellophane wrapping on top and tie with a ribbon that coordinates with your wedding and a tag that says “Thank You.” Guests will love the thoughtful favor, and they will love using it as well.
