Local Treats Your Guests Are Sure to Enjoy

I know I’ve written before about using items created locally in your wedding, either as a favor, in a guest room gift or other detail. Martha Stewart Weddings even did a story on regional wedding favors.

If you’re getting married in a city that’s important to you and your fiancé, or you’re getting married in a destination many guests may not be familiar with, it’s a nice idea to incorporate the location into your details. But how do you pick an item that represents the local area?

Kirei Nest, a new registry blog I wrote about last month just launched a new feature, Locale Lovelies, where local folks (bloggers, shop owners, artist) from every state will write posts about their home state and which local items they would suggest for wedding details.

The first in the 50-post series is for the state of Alabama and includes sweets as well as recommendations on what to do and where to eat if you’re getting hitched in the town of Florence, AL.
