Sweet Treats for your Welcome Bags and Baskets

Wow! What a busy wedding season! Fall weddings are still in bloom here in beautiful Hilton Head Island. The weather is getting cooler and October is my favorite wedding month.

Weddings are taking place all over the Island! From the 18th hole on Harbor Town Golf Links in The Sea Pines Resort, to our beautiful oceanfront hotels such as The Marriott, The Westin, and The Crowne Plaza, to The Main Street Inn and The Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn.

There are many wedding venues to choose from on Hilton Head Island. Style depends on you! Do you envision our landmark Harbor Town Lighthouse in the background, stately oak trees, or your feet in the sand? No matter what you choose, you won’t be let down.

A Hilton Head Island wedding is not complete without giving your guests a sweet treat made by some of the best Island cookie and candy companies.

When thinking about guest favors, why not give them a sweet treat from one of the Island’s remarkably delicious chocolate shops! A chocolate shaped sand dollar or alligator anyone?

Cookies by Design can make a sugar cookie into any shape, size or color to match your wedding. Not only are these cookies great at the wedding, but the rehearsal dinner as well.

Owner of Bluffton Brittle, Barrett Collins, describes her brittle as a “homemade treat for your mouth made in the South.” Her product line includes plain, jalapeno, white chocolate dipped and double chocolate dipped peanut brittle. Bluffton Brittle uses extra large Virginia style peanuts, creamy butter and then kettle cooks the mixture just right so the result is a crunchy, buttery, soft, sweet treat perfect for your guests’ welcome bags!

If you don’t have time to put a welcome basket together, there is a company on the Island that will handle it for you! Picked for You will customize a welcome basket for your guests.
