TOOO FUNNY: Don't EVER say your guest don't keep favors!

Ok Ladies, ALL of us always say none of our guest will keep any of the knick knack favors, so us the modern brides do mostly edible favors photobooths etc... right?

So my mother and I started some spring cleaning and I took advantage of this because I thought this would be a GREAT opportunity to get rid of some stuff that shouldn't move on with me and FI and also make room for some stuff to stay at my moms that I shouldn't take with me to our new home (hehehe)

So going through my mom's closet, I found this box...to my surprise... I opened it and you won't believe what it's filled with.... yes ladies....WEDDING FAVORS!!!!

Yes the potpourri, wine glasses with figurines in them, baskets, girls you know what I'm taking about itWink

I bursted laughing and my mom came to look and she said oh I had MORE before like a kitchen trash bag of them! (We are talking about like 300++ favors) I remember it, she got rid of alot and of that she now has this box. 

My suggestion was to throw it away, she wanted to go through them...ok ladies she's keeping at least 75% of the box because she has fond memories of the couple. 

This post would NOT be believable without pics....

ENJOY!!!!!Laughing

BOX I FOUND!

A FEW OF THEM SHE DECIDED TO KEEP!

SOME OF THE OTHERS SHE DECIDED TO KEEP!

I JUST HAD TO SHOW YOU LADIES!

    To be honest, my bro was the one who went to at least 90% of the weddings. He would bring the favors home and then my mom wouldn't want to throw them away because the couple paid $$$ for them, it almost felt like she was throwing $$ away.

    So after many years of collecting and NOT wanting to throw away she ended up with 300+ favors. 

    It's time to depart, but the few weddings she has gone to or knows the couple etc etc...she refuses to throw....geesh!

    MY MOTHER LADIES!!!!

    Jagore-she is actually on the next episode??? lolWink

    I totally understand...my aunt has a display of just favors in it. It's huge and has a whole lot of them...that's crazy!  I guess there are cool people who kept those little things that stressed us out so much during the wedding process. yay to your mom haha!
