Nuptial Trends: Cookies!

z - Nuptial trends

This week I wanted to talk about cookies! You may be thinking; what inspired this post? Well, one day I was browsing around the web and I stumbled across these social networking cookies on I Am Baker that actually made me laugh out loud! I thought “How NEAT are these!?!”

Check out what I’m talking about…

There’s these Facebook ones…



As well as these Twitter ones!



So how can cookies be used in YOUR wedding? Well let’s explore the options…

For one, cookies can be used as placecards. Whether there are tags tied to the cookie bag or names written in icing on the cookie, both ideas are fun and unique!

Like these seen on The Knot here and here



Or these luau themed one, from The Celebration Shoppe

Cookies can also be placed at the table setting; either on the menus or napkins. Like these three themed cookies from The Knot found here, here and here.




You can also put your monogram on a cookie for a unique favor to send your guests home with. From The Knot


Another way to display cookies would be a cookie buffet! Similar to a candy buffet, different types of cookies can be put on display & labeled in differently sized jars. From The Knot

Or perhaps as an end of the night snack… cookies served with milk! From The Knot


Cookies can be used for more than just weddings though; for example Engagement Parties! These would make great favors or dessert.

I love these rings and bridal cookies from The Well Dressed Cookie


They can also be used to ask members of your bridal party to be a part of your big day!

Like this adorable Flower Girl cookie also from The Well Dressed Cookie


Cookies would also be a great touch at the bridal shower! What fabulous favors these beauties would make…

Personalize them with the bride’s name, the date or even a simple “Thank you” like these from Squidoo


I love this one from The Gum Drop Cookie Shop that uses this classic bridal phrase

something old

Blow your guests away with a “cake” made of cake-shaped cookies! From The Celebration Shoppe

Bridesmaids from Elenis are another fun idea!


Another idea? Surprise your bride-to-be with these fun party cookies @ her bachelorette bash! Personalize them with her name and/or the date and make it a sweet treat she’ll never forget!

Our Cookies!

For our rehearsal dinner, I contemplated getting a Groom’s Cake but then considered that we wouldn’t have enough people there to justify a big cake. Alternative? Cookies! We ended up ordering “personalized” ones from local baker Holly’s Cookies.

We chose some designs that fit our personalities. I surprised my hubby by having baseball themed ones (Baseballs & NY Yankee hats). We also had pink and white dresses to go along with the wedding attire. I had made tags that said “See You Tomorrow!” along with our wedding date on them that Holly tied to each cookie.
