Best. Favors. Ever.


Even though I want to really badly, I can't take all the credit for our wedding favors. My mom, Wil's aunt and her BFF and I all put our baby brains together to think up our amazingly personalized gifts. No, I'm not going to tell you what they are, but I will show you how fun it was to wrap them all. I can say that the subway wrapping paper was my idea.


Although Natalie and I worked worked for almost eight hours on this little project, we only got halfway through it. For the record, choosing to individually-wrap TWO HUNDRED wedding favors is a really stupid idea. I'm hoping to get the rest done over the weekend while Wil is on the couch, recovering from his bachelor party (more about that next week). Thank you to everyone who helped me collect maps and to my baby sister for coming to my wrapping party. There are only 44 days left until show time, people!

It sounds insane, but I LOVE the subway map. Every time I'm on the train and I'm standing in front of one I just like following routes that I've traveled. And I think you know how much I love NYC. One day I'll frame a map and hang it somewhere in my house. Those favors are fantastic!

What a great idea. My friend met her fiance in NY and the theme for their wedding is...you guessed it..NEW YORK. I'm the "official" event planner and decorator...just found a great idea for favors. If you don't mind me copying it ;) LOVE IT!!!

Those look really cool! My ex boyfriend used to get old maps from his coast guard station and wrap everyone's christmas gifts in them and it was always a big hit. Stopping by from LA's blog!
