Ask your guests what they want as a favor, and they're sure to say, "Something to eat!" And, yes, you should listen to them, but that doesn't mean you can't be creative as well. Case in point: This couple incorporated their day's marble details by having a baker paint a similar design on top of a cookie.

If you're not into the idea of making small cocktail signs, stick to creating a beautiful main display. We love the tone-on-tone palette of this particular sign as it coordinates with the rest of the wedding's sure-to-be marble details without taking away from the rest of the set-up.
