Indianapolis, In (PressExposure) November 19, 2009 -- Many brides and grooms are looking this year for a unique and memorable wedding favor that combines elegant tradition with a dash of flavorful fun. With multiple color and flavor combinations, FancyFortuneCookies.com's custom line of personalized fortune cookies may just be the answer.
Mike Fry, founder of America's original gourmet flavored fortune cookie company, Fancy Fortune Cookies ( http://fancyfortunecookies.com ), has been assisting about-to-be brides and wedding planners in coming up with creative and mouth-watering ways to wish wedding and bridal shower guests good fortune for nearly twenty years. Fry and his staff at Fancy Fortune Cookies are now planning to spread their "fortune cookies as wedding favors" concept OFF-line by attending more bridal shows and wedding expos in 2010.
"Customized fortune cookies in different flavors and colors can be coordinated to match wedding colors, sweeten up a wedding reception's decor and add that 'start to our future' element to any wedding celebration," says Fry. "Our FancyFortuneCookies.com website has long been a popular online destination for wedding favors, bridal shower favors and wedding party gifts, but we feel by attending more live events this yearâallowing future brides the chance to smell, taste and crunch these aromatic and delectable treats - we'll be able to drive that concept home to their palates (and their stomachs) that fortune cookie wedding favors are a match made in heaven for any wedding event."
Wedding favors ( http://bit.ly/WeddingFavorIdea ) are tokens of gratitude given to wedding guests, often at the wedding's reception, to thank them for sharing in the wedding celebration and supporting a bride and groom's new commitment. Though cost is given considerable weight when selecting wedding favors, most people want wedding favors to be artistic, pleasurable and unique to the wedding. Ideally, favors will create lasting memories that will remind guests of a couple's special day once the event has passed. Often times, favors also serve as part of the decorations for the reception hall.
In the Spring 2005 issue of her Weddings magazine, Martha Stewart featured Fancy Fortune Cookies' chocolate-covered pink raspberry gourmet fortune cookies as an ideal wedding favor idea. Since then, the trend toward using colored and flavored fortune cookies as personalized wedding favors has continued to grow each and every year. Fancy Fortune Cookies now has over 25 one-of-a-kind color and flavor combinations ( http://www.fancyfortunecookies.com/flavors.shtml ) specifically created to match the color scheme, dÃ©cor and atmosphere of a wedding event. With a delicious variety of tastes ranging from orange, coconut, mint and green apple to raspberry, cherry, lemon and cappuccino, brides can also personalize each fortune cookie wedding favor with five or more special messages inside or simply have the fortunes feature the happy couple's names and wedding date to give guests a lasting memory of their day.
"We look forward to working one-on-one with brides in 2010 to help them add a more personal, memorable, not to mention flavorful, touch to their wedding favors," says Erin Jump Fry, a Wedding Specialist at Fancy Fortune Cookies. "A wedding reception is supposed to be the fairytale-like party celebrating the bride and groom's union. After a short consultation with soon-to-be brides, our ideas to add a little charm and *WOW* factor to their upcoming festivities are endless!"
Starting with the recent November 8th Hamilton County 2009 Bridal Show in Noblesville, Indiana (a suburb of Indianapolis) some of the ideas that Fancy Fortune Cookies' team of wedding favor specialists are taking to bridal shows and wedding expos around the country are as follows:
* Chocolate covered fortune cookies are the perfect wedding favor to add an extra level of indulgence and a first-class look to a wedding reception. Fancy Fortune Cookies can hand-dip any of our gourmet fortune cookies in milk, dark or white chocolate.
* Use the chocolate-covered mint flavored fortune cookies for a clever "after-dinner mint", serve coffee with a complimenting cappuccino flavored fortune cookie, or use the lemon or orange flavored cookies as a palate cleanser.
* Create a "wedding favor box" with a monogrammed Chinese take-out box (that Fancy also sells) containing an assortment of Fancy Fortune Cookie colors and flavors.
"And best of all, with the current economy being what it is, fortune cookies are one of the most affordable wedding favor options around - regardless of how many guests you will have," adds owner Mike Fry.
Priced at under 50 cents each for traditional-sized flavored cookies and around $1.00 for chocolate-covered varieties, Fancy Fortune Cookies offers creative variations on fortune cookie favors and gifts that will fit any wedding budget.
