When I decided to have my wedding during this pandemic, I knew I would have some guest who would come without hesitation, those who want to come but hesitate and those who don’t leave their house because of COVID. Requiring my guest wear mask was out of the question. If they chose to wear masks, I most certainly would not object. To be perfectly honest, even the best N95 masks cannot stop COVID. What I did want to do is make my attending guest feel as comfortable as possible. So how can I do this and still have the perfect wedding?
Both our wedding and reception were outside and at the same venue. Our wedding was to start at 4 and dinner wasn’t until 6:30. I knew I wanted to have some sort of refreshments and snacks but how can I do this without breaking the bank while still keeping the safety of our guests in mind ….. individually packaged snacks! In addition to keeping each person from touching a serving spoon, I could have several different snacks to satisfy both the sweet & salty pallet.
Now, which snacks to choose. I went to my go to snacks first of course. Popcorn, chocolate, nuts & ChexMix. Once I had the snacked picked out, I needed to come up with the sayings & designs for the labels. Luckily, I was able to come up with some cute ones. The 4 designs I came up with for my wedding are…. drumroll please…..
Now, these snacks can be used for all different types of get togethers, weddings, birthdays, baby showers, etc. So, what will you need to make these snacks? I used 4X6 plastic sealable bags (not resealable), card stock, a printer, stapler, Cricut paper slicer & paper scorer. (I will have the links for everything you’ll need below.) I would do a how-to video, but I think this one’s pretty easy. Print, cut, score, fill & staple.
These snacks were a hit at my wedding and I'm sure they will do the same at your socially distant gathering.
