I’ve had a couple brides asking lately about local wedding favors. I think it’s a great idea to reflect the place you live in your wedding, and lucky for us, we live in a place that grows some wonderful produce, which makes things much easier!
Here is a roundup of local favors I think represent the Spokane/Cd’A area…
Honey. Little jars of honey makes an adorable favor and is sure to make your guests happy campers. I would start your honeymaker search on Green Bluff!
Coffee. Like it or not, the Northwest is known for two things by the rest of the world. Coffee and rain (you can thank our Seattle contingent for that)…and Nirvana, which, IMO really has no place in weddings. We have some great coffee shops here in Spokane. Find a blend you love or one from the place you had your first coffee date. There are some great packaging options too!
Apples. If you’ve ever bit into an apple anywhere else in the world, you know… Washington apples truly are superior. Embrace what we do best!
Huckleberries. This one’s a little harder since huckleberries are really only in season a couple weeks every year. They are not common in 96% of the world (a stat I totally made up btw), so not only are they a novelty, but people seriously love them! If you plan ahead you could get them when they’re in season and freeze them.
Lavender. It may not be the first thing to come to mind when you think of the Northwest, but we have some amazing lavender farms in Spokane. My favorite is Fleur de Provence Lavender Farm on Green Bluff.
Do you have any another local favor ideas???
