Jules725:  Why don’t you have them pre-boxed on a table with the flavors labeled and invite them to pick up the flavor they want?

I don’t think it’s cheesy, but I think you may still have a number of people who will forget to grab them.

Jen041815:  +1  I like this suggestion.

Jules725:  I also agree with PPs that they may still be forgotten.  As long as that doesn’t bother you, offer them anyway.  We did cookie favors that my mom had made, put them by the exit door and everything, and I think 80-90% of people didn’t grab them.

I would probably just go ahead and box them up and put them at people’s seats. That minimizes the chance that they’ll forget to take them (or just eat them during dessert). People can always trade if they want a different variety.

Jules725:  I do not think it’s cheesy at all to have the empty box at the table and let them choose.

We have our cake pops as our favors- there were different flavors, and not labeled.  They were set up on a table that was sort of by the door.  It wasn’t actually by the door- but our wedding was in a mansion, it the main hall you must walk down to get the door- there was a big, wooden table.  There was also a little chalkboard that said “take one”- it said more than that, I just don’t remember.  People like gourmet treats- no one forgot to take them, I promise- and they were much smaller than a cupcake.  As a matter of fact, there were only five left at the end of the night- and we ordered plenty extra.
