Hot Drink Mixes Wedding Favors

It's cold here today. It's dreary and gray ... and cold. I made coffee this morning, but here's the thing with me and coffee. I make it hot when I wake up, then drink it as I start working, and by the time I finish it, I'm drinking cold coffee. I love cold coffee because it reminds me of Japan, but it doesn't warm me up. So now, I'm thinking about making tea to break the chill I'm feeling. Chill, and I'm bundled up in cozy socks. If your wedding guests will be exposing legs and arms at your (potentially) chilly fall or winter wedding, hot drinks are a must. And having hot drink mixes wedding favors as a take away, it's perfect.

It really is such a fun fall wedding favor idea.

A hot drink is PERFECT for a cold night. So if you're having a fall or winter wedding, these Hot Drink Mixes Wedding Favors ideas from www.abrideonabudget.com are perfect!


Hot drink mixes as a wedding favors could be an easy DIY. Actually, the last post on this list is a DIY that we did previously on A Bride On A Budget. But if you're not into DIY and would rather purchase your favors, we have a lot of great ideas for you too.

Hot Drink Mixes Wedding Favors

A hot drink is PERFECT for a cold night. So if you're having a fall or winter wedding, these Hot Drink Mixes Wedding Favors ideas from www.abrideonabudget.com are perfect!
Apple Cider Drink Mix
One of my favorite fall drinks is hot apple cider, but I can't have it any time other than apple season without it feeling out of place. So fall weddings are the perfect time for this Apple Cider Drink Mix in personalized bags.

You can choose your text and image, which is nice. What I really like, though, is this also comes with caramels. I never put caramel in my apple cider before, but what a great reason to try it. And who doesn't love caramel apples? They scream fall.

Purchase here.

Personalized Hot Chocolate Wedding Favor
My favorite hot drink is hot chocolate. Who doesn't love it? No one I know. A hot chocolate packet as a favor sounds great to me -- and I'd probably drink it as soon as I got home, especially since weddings usually don't have hot chocolate at the end of the night. Coffee and tea, sure, but hot chocolate is almost never offered. 

You can give it to all your guests with this personalized hot chocolate wedding favor. You can personalize it with your own text and you can choose from a variety of colors and designs. Plus, you can purchase it with or without the whisk (I vote with because hot chocolate that's whisked tastes great, plus your guests will have something to remember your wedding by after the mix is done).

Purchase here.

The Perfect Blend Burlap Bags
Coffee favors are a no brainer when you're thinking about hot drink favors, but they're actually a little more DIY than anything else. I wasn't able to find packets like I did for the others. I guess because it's easy enough to go to the store and purchase coffee. If you do, purchase beans, not grounds. Grounds can be really, really messy as a favor. 

So grab the beans and these The Perfect Blend burlap bags by Kate Aspen. They're cute, especially if you're incorporating burlap into your rustic wedding (which is really trendy right now).

Wedding Cappuccino Mix
I've never had a cappuccino, if you can believe that. I've only been drinking coffee for couple years (and mostly because I really love the last sip with all the sugar), so I think cappuccino is something I have to work towards. 

If you like cappuccino, you'll like this Wedding Cappuccino Mix favor.

Purchase here.

Personalized Tea Favors
At my last job, I drank a lot of tea. People would take coffee breaks and I would walk with them to get tea. It's one of those beverages that I think coffee drinkers forget exist. And restaurants too. There are so many places where I can get coffee but there's no tea on the menu. But there is tea on this hot drink mixes wedding favors list. Y

ou can get these personalized tea favors for your guests. They come in a variety of images, so you can find one that fits your wedding best.

Purchase here.

Coffee Mug Candles
If you like coffee a lot, but you don't like the idea of a mix packet as a favor, I found something cute for you: coffee mug candles. You can order a set of six -- and they come in a mug shaped holder with a plate.

What's great is that after the candle is done, your guests can just wash these in the dishwasher and use them for espresso. So cute.

Purchase here.

Thanks A Latte Coffee Favor
If you're a little more creative and want to make your own coffee-based favors, but you don't feel like designing tags, I have you covered. Our Thanks A Latte Coffee Favor comes with a free printable gift tag. Just add beans, a mug, or whatever you can imagine.

Wedding Deals And Savings (Updated for Green Monday 2018)

As I've mentioned before, I usually don't post deals on the blog. Yes, it's about saving money, but I try to keep deals on Twitter or Facebook because deals expire and posts on this blog last forever. But people were really happy with the wedding deals and savings I posted for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so I decided to put together this monthly post of wedding deals and savings.

It is updated every month with the current deals and coupon codes. The post is separated into three sections: Wedding Stationery Deals, Wedding Deals (for anything other than stationery), and Wedding Freebies.

No matter what you are up to in the planning process, this list is sure to help you out.

Save on your wedding stationery, grab wedding freebies, and more from this post at www.abrideonabudget.com. Updated monthly!

Free Trust Me You Can Dance - Vodka Sign

UPDATE: Head to the end of this Free Trust Me You Can Dance - Vodka Sign post to get the printable and a code to get a free 8x10 at Walgreens, valid now through December 8.

I dance. A lot. All the time. By myself, around Pete, at our wedding.

I wouldn't ever say I can dance. I remember being at a sweet sixteen in high school and having a few of my friends try really hard to teach me how to swing my hips to the beat. But my beat and the song's beat aren't always the same.

And that's me sober.

I laugh at myself though and have  a good time because life is too fun to take seriously all the time. Especially at weddings. If your guests have trouble loosening up, you're not alone. A lot of guests start stiff. Open bars help ... and that's probably where the "You can dance - Vodka" quote came from.

How fun is this Trust Me You Can Dance - Vodka sign for your wedding? You can get it for FREE from www.abrideonabudget.com.

If you've been on Pinterest, you've definitely seen that quote. It can be expensive to order it, though, s so I actually made a free printable sign for you with that exact quote. You can print it, put it in an 8x10 picture frame, and stand it at the bar at your wedding. It'll make your guests laugh, order vodka, and dance.

It's formatted to be 8x10 so you're gonna want to print it somewhere like Walgreens. Actually, right now, you can get a free 8x10 at Walgreens with the code 8X10FREE.

How fun is this Trust Me You Can Dance - Vodka sign for your wedding? You can get it for FREE from www.abrideonabudget.com.

If you want to use this for your wedding, you can crop it after you upload it and cut off my watermark. That's fine with me. You just can't reproduce my design without the watermark for anything but your wedding.

BRIDAL BABBLE: Would you hang this Trust Me You Can Dance - Vodka sign at your wedding?

Love this design?
