our wedding: the favors


My friend Mari of Mari’s New York created custom gourmet brownies for our favors. To pay homage to each of our cultures in an edible way, we gave guests two individually wrapped brownies…one in Thai Coffee and one in Korean Red Bean flavors. We worked together to brainstorm some Thai and Korean flavors that would work well with her signature brownies. Then, Bob and I chose these two from all the tasty options she developed…and the end result was amazing!


{More info…I ordered plain white slide boxes from Papermart and wrapped them in simple patterned paper that I designed. Each box has a band around the top with a little note to guests. Mari’s New York will be launching soon…so feel free to contact her with any initial inquiries. I’ll be sure to post more when her shop launches!}


  1. Wow, so gorgeous! I love it that everything is right down to the last details. The packaging holds the favors perfectly, oh how I would love to have been at your wedding 🙂

  2. What a wonderful idea to blend a taste of your two cultures together and share them with your guests. Great idea. I bet they tasted just divine! Love the design on the paper too!

  3. hey jac,
    yeah, the lime label looks a bit bright in this’s actually more like chartruese…the two labels were colors that were part of our theme. so seeing it out of context, it doesn’t really show why those colors are that way! 😉

  4. Wow! Joy, those favors are beautiful. Who helped you wrap them because they did a WONDERFUL job! (hehe)
    Seriosuly, those wedding favors were a great idea Joy. They added a tasty treat to a perfect wedding 😀

  5. Oh – everything about your wedding is so beautiful and delicate – and so much you!
    I wish you all the best – you really did a great job preparing for your wedding and your future together.
