My fiance and I are getting married on March 10th at Conwy Castle in North Wales (http://www.conwy.com/).  We're only bringing our immediate family with us, so I was able to go all out on the favors!

I'm giving each of the girls a sterling castle necklace, purchased from Western Mountain Company on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5066147)


Since we'll have to fly in for the wedding, I didn't want to spend time wrapping the favors only to possibly have to unwrap them for customs, so I made coin purses to serve as wrapping and bonus favors. The fabrics I used are significant to where we're being married and the whole associated trip.  The fronts were taken from a tea towel printed with the British monarchy from William the Conquerer through modern times, the backs are Irish grown linen in a mustard yellow shade.  The lining is made up of one panel of plaid (for the honeymoon we'll be taking in Edinburgh) and one panel of a red brick print (for the time we'll all be spending at Hampton Court Palace prior to the wedding).




I'm really excited to give these!  Hope you guys like  Grin

Thanks guys! We're really excited Smiley Having such a small wedding means I don't get to do a lot of the crafty things I would do if we were having more guests (like flowers, invites, etc.) . . . but I'm glad I got to hand make something for the occasion! Smiley
