Give yourself the gift of beauty. In truth, you already have the gift of beauty. If you consider the eyes of your bride to be as a mirror into a deeper reality, you are already the most beautiful woman in the world.
Yes, you've offered your guests the rare chance to witness you and your beloved committing to each other forever, and then subsequently lubricated them with enough cocktails to want to celebrate in this unabashed display of passion and devotion. You've also hopefully planned to offer an inviting array of delicious cuisine ranging from the amuse bouche to delicate sweet endings. But even though you've given your wedding guests all of this, it is customary and quite expected that you send them home with a special gift. The wedding favor doesn't have to be anything huge, however, and we've gathered our current favorite homemade favors that you can do yourself. —
