    That's a brilliant idea for a favour! Where did you get them?
    I'll have a think about labelling and see if I can come up with something!

    Ok, this is just a quick thought, probably a bit rubbish and cheesy but bear in mind I'm on my second glass of wine!
    How about something like -
    "A scent for you to wear, to remember you were there, on our special day"

    I found a cheap website but it was from america and the shipping was rather expensive and wasnt worth it [​IMG] Then my h2b's parents were going to america last year and we had them shipped to their hotel for $50!! So worked out bout 50p a bottle plus shipping!!

    To fill them we bought perfume and aftershave from the pound shop on the precint!! [​IMG] and i found the material and ribbon on ebay. Bargin hunter me!!! [​IMG]

    Sounds ok might do something like that, thanks hun x

    I think fragrance is a really good idea and very original.
    I'm very much a bargain hunter too, there's lots of us on this site!
    Just noticed you're getting married next week....is all sorted?

    That would be fantastic, can't wait to see them.
    We decided that we're going to put some chilli seeds (we love everything hot and all our friends know it), a home-made chocolate truffle wrapped nicely and i'm going to try and make some glass charms that reflect an aspect of the guests personality in our favours. We really wanted to do something that doesn't just last that day, something they can keep as a memento.
    Would love to see you guys wrapping after a bottle of malibu, lol!!! [​IMG]

    Good question re making charms, I'm thinking blood, sweat and tears.....
    I've really found my creative side since we started planning the wedding, didn't think I had one before. We've got a couple of craft shops and a bead shop now so am going to trawl through those. Only actually decided about the charms today so wish me luck, lol!
