rosecut:  as long as I can eat it I’m happy!  We gave out little boxes of chocolates. 

I think the best we’ve gotten have been cookies, chocolates or a candy bar

If I HAD to get a favor, I would hope it was at a very expensive wedding, and the favor was a bottle of a realy good red wine. Vintage?  the year the bride was born.

Honestly, most of the favors at every wedding I have attended were just some piece of junk. The edible favors were the best, but even those were totally unnecessary given that we had indulged in food and beverages all night.

The most recent weddings I have attended have all chosen not to do a favor.

Definitely edible – I’d just leave the rest. Preferably something I can just pop in my mouth and eat, so no olive oil, smores or hot chocolate kits. Absolutely no Jordan almonds – I always threw those out for the squirrels, who probably still hate me for it.

I would love olive oil, I have never even heard of that at a wedding!

I went to a wedding recently where they had small jars of jam as the favor. While everyone from our table was at the bar a man from another table came and stole 4 jars from our table. I don’t know why people do that, can they not afford jam?! Anyways, keep that in mind with edible favors, people are greedy and some people will end up without.

Coffee! I think Keurig cups, or single brew bags are great!

I liked getting tic tacs or mints as a favor- something I could pop in my purse and use that night if necessary. Chocolate or bulky things get ruined or forgotten by the time I remember it with all the other junk I stow away.

rosecut:  Regular old candy bars… Snickers, Twix, Reese’s, Almond Joys, etc… Something I’d normally buy anyway.

Gummy candy. I had a popcorn and candy buffet and the gummy candy went fastest – think gummy bears, gummy worms, sourpatch kids, etc.

I can’t think of any wedding favor for a wedding I’ve attended (approx 20) that I had any interest in eating or keeping.  I’m not that into sweets and usually find it weird to get a cupcake or candy bar when I just ate cake.  But – if you must, you mentioned mints, that could be a reasonable idea.

Edible is best, that way even if I didn’t like it I could give it to somebody else and know it didn’t go to waste! Personally I’d be all over olive oil, coffe, or wine. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth so when we get sweets I give mine to FI. We’re doing fancy cookies as a favor which although I don’t eat (too sweet for me), everybody loves them and they’re very beautiful.

I’d just be sure that whatever it is, it can be transported easily. Something like olive oil wouldn’t be great if any of the guests flew in, for example.
