So in a perfect world, we’d have the budget to do all three of these options! But what would you prefer as a guest in regards to a favor?
A bit of background: we are having a rustic/DIY fall wedding in a barn the week after Halloween.
Maybe I can affix the budget to get TWO of these things on the list, but if I had to pick just one…

I’d do the photo booth for sure if you can afford it. Our photo booth provided us with a book with a copy of all of the pictures taken throughout the night, and the guests got to write messages next to their pictures. It’s one of our favorite keepsakes from our wedding. So really, it’s fun for the guests, plus it’s a gift for you.

@cmbr: There are actually decent deals on LivingSocial, but I don’t know how reputable that is.

@BurlapnLace: Apple butter is delicious and homey and fits your theme! It was my choice. 🙂 I like the photobooths and we keep the photo strips from weddings we’ve been to on our little bulletin board, so I get excited to add a new one. But both the booths and the candy bar have been SOOO popular the past couple years that I’m starting to miss the interesting favors.

@BurlapnLace: Just google the vendors who are promoting themselves / do your yelp research! I’ve used LivingSocial / Groupon since 2008ish / 2009 and they’ve been great.
If you’re worried about the vendors promoting themselves on there, ask LS if they refund what you pay if the vendor goes out of business? I know Groupon does that.

I voted for the photos! Although I like edible things, the pics would be a great keepsake and last forever.

Mmm Apple Butter 🙂 It would be fun to eat it after the wedding and remember the night.

It’s always fun to select your favorite sweets to take home with you!

The photo booth doubles as entertainment and a favor – so that’s my pick!
Between the candy and the apple butter, I’d want the apple butter.
