We all love Milwaukee. But some of your out-of-town wedding guests might not know that much about our great city. This means your wedding is the perfect opportunity to show them how awesome Milwaukee is.
There’s a variety of ways to do this, but one of the best is to give them some cool Milwaukee wedding favors, bridal party gifts and/or welcome bags. Check out our picks for some of Milwaukee’s top wedding favors below:
Here at Married In Milwaukee we encourage all future brides and grooms to support local vendors for their weddings. Now here’s a great way to do it – stop by the Buy Local Gift Fair on Sunday December 8, 2013, where you’ll find 40 local vendors (including many wedding vendors) selling their goods all in the awesome space of Lakefront Brewery.
Below are 7 of the vendors we recommend you check out for your wedding. Stop in and chat with these businesses about their wedding offerings and maybe get some holiday shopping done in the process. Oh yeah, did we mention there’s free Lakefront Brewery tours too? Check out the Buy Local Gift Fair website for more info.
If you hang out in downtown Milwaukee, you likely have heard of Classy Girl Cupcakes. Their downtown location right off of Cathedral Square Park has been around since 2009 and they’ve been busy ever since.

Their gourmet chocolates are so decadent and their chocolate wedding favors and displays are unique and gorgeous. We’ve heard from many couples not only how yummy their desserts are, but how delightful they are to work with.

If you’re like me, you may have found yourself to be in love with coffee. Maybe it’s your desire to stay awake – after all, caffeine is the drug enjoyed by both sides of the law.

I am a huge fan of photo booths at weddings. I think this is the one of the funnest and most interactive wedding favors you can give your guests. What is more personalized than a photo of yourself to take home? Plus the bride and groom get a keepsake memory book out of the deal. Now that the trend is here to stay, the question becomes how do you choose a vendor to go with? Our friends Jordan and Todd at PhotoBooth4U had some insight.
