NYC is known as the Big Apple. Florida is known best for its oranges. For Atlanta, we are known for our homegrown Georgia Peaches, so why not incorporate these items into your Georgia wedding? In lieu of the candles, matches and homemade trinkets, supporting local vendors will not only help you save on shipping (many will meet you at a mutual location) but it will also give your guests a piece of Georgia that they can take with them, whether they are native to the state or are from miles away.
Georgia Jams provides local, seasonally harvested fruit jams & preserves that help your guests spread the love for days after your big day. You can order the 1.5 ounce samplers or the 10 ounce jar and have the labels personalized to give each jar that special touch. Flavors ranging from Sweet Southern Belle to Red Rebel Jelly will definitely set your wedding apart from all the rest, all wrapped with a matching ribbon from the owner Lori Bean.
If you’re wanting a Southern traditional favorite and you’re not into peach flavors, what about peach shaped chocolates, peach mint tins or, for a unique bride like yourself, why not give the gift of grits? The traditional Southern grits include a hot stove and milk (sometimes cheese) however these Grit Bits selections include bite sized biscuits baked with grits for a corny crunch. Flavors include Cheddar, Vidalia Onion, Jalapeno and Butter.
If you’re the bride that likes the more hands-on approach and you’d like to see the product before your purchase, check out Half Baked Casseroles.
