Seattle themed wedding favours?

Hi Seattle brides!

I'm going to be finally moving to Seattle this summer after spending years apart from my long distance fiance!   We are getting married in our hometown of Montreal Canada and thought it would be really neat if we had Seattle themed wedding favours for our guests (who are mainly from Montreal)...

Does anyone have any ideas?   I know chocolates from Theo chocolate are popular but I dont think Montrealers would know they are from Seattle.   Something from Seattle's best would probably be more obvious but there's nothing i can afford to buy there!  any ideas?

thanks!!

    Hmmm....maybe little starbuck cups or if you could find little space needles or something like that. Or maybe a salmon? Hmmm this is a tough one! Hope those help :) good luck!!

    • Ditto chocolate covered espresso beans either from Starbucks or Seattle's Best.
    • Also, chocolate covered dried bing cherries http://www.chukar.com/category/Dark_Chocolate, they don't have a specific wedding favor-friendly size, but they do custom so you could have them make much smaller bags.
    • Dilettante Chocolates or truffles (again, contact them to arrange for small single portions, etc)
    • Fran's Salted Caramels
    • Appelots & Cotelots (official WA state candy, although I don't like them)

    Obviously, I'm a chocoholic, you might also try Seattle chocolates:

    I don't know much about your wedding, does it have a theme? How big is your guest list? What kind of price range are you thinking per favor? Because while you might not see something on the websites packaged small enough (ie larger gift tins only), most places will be happy to coordinate with you to do favor/small gifts in a quantity.

    you could do a pike place market theme favor. I dont know what would be in it but I am orignally from alaska and if we ever talked about seattle it was pikes place or the space needle. Maybe just make sure to put a note in the favor that what ever it is it ordinated here.

    ooh you could put swedish fish in it for the fish toss at the market :)

    I think you should do personalized Jone's Sodas!!! those are always a hit! and you can let them know that they are from seattle. :) If you do decide to do this, make sure to google for coupon codes because they are ALWAYS out there. GL!
