Looking for suggestions for rustic wedding – as many have mentioned i don’t want something that people will leave on the table! Fiance is a golfer and thought maybe golf balls, or shot glasses? Ideas?

mini jars of jam, honey or maple syrup
lavender sachets- buy lavender now while it is inexpensive
sweater cozies for coffee mugs- you can make then from sweaters you find at thrift stores

I had forget-me-not seeds in handmade fabric bags at my wedding.

I’m a fan of anything that can be eaten AND anything that you’d be more than happy to have leftovers of.
As a guest, I pretty much ignore anything that can be classified as “cute clutter” and I’m fairly sure I’m not the only one. So if YOU and FI would be merry with 50 extra leftover golfballs (not a bad deal if you golf!) then by all means, do golfballs. I’m guessing that you’d be less enthused with 50 extra shotglasses (or hey, maybe you like to par-tay!), so I’d probably steer way from those.

Depending on what your budget is, Munsons Chocolates makes chocolate golf balls.

For our favors, we were planning to have s’more kits (that we would have DIY) but instead decided to incorporate it as part as our dessert table. Since our guests will have a variety of desserts to choose from that can be taken home, we decided to opt out of favors. But I still think they make for a great favor in of itself!

One rule of thumb… make your favor either edible or immediatly useful. Chances are if it is just a candle or something that just sits on a shelf it will get lost or not taken home at all. It is also nice for it to be local if you have lot of out of town guests or personal. For example my FI and I love to snuggle up with popcorn so our favor is popcorn that will be freshly popped at the reception.

Our friends had 303 at their rustic reception and made everyone 4oz jars of jam with the phrase: “Thanks for jammin’ with us!” Names, and wedding date. (which you could also order.) It was one of the best favors I’ve received!! FI ate one of the whole jars in one sitting!!!

I just got these favor examples in the mail with the sign I had this girl make for me on etsy. I love the sign, and these are cute little placecard holders/photo holders. I haven’t talked to her about prices, yet.

We re canned local jam into 1.5 oz jars for 120 people. We had very few that came home with us and it was relatively inexpensive. You can order jars and lids online for fairly cheap. We made labels and covered the top with a piece of fabric I had and tied it with twine
