Is there a local treat or one that is special to you and your FI?

Anything else is usually a waste of money as over half the guests will leave it behind or bin it when they get home.

@FutureChiBride:  one bride on here did a donation to an animal shelter for each guest and had the contribution card at each place setting. I loved that idea so much!!

I did this. I rolled each cone and secured it with a pretty embellishment. I bought bulk sturdy flowers and used a small water tube. 

Cost for paper and floral $80.00

these were for my women guests,who raved about how lovely they were. Plus it made for a large statement piece in the room.

Give us some information about you and your FI and some wedding details to help give us ideas! It should be something that has a meaning or is special to you as a couple- but also you have to know what your guests might like.

Have a favorite snack? You could give edibles- cookies, popcorn, chocolates, mini bottles of wine/olive oil, jars of homemade jam or your favorite salsa…

Like gardening? I’ve seen little potted succulents, fresh herbs, seed bombs that guests could plant…

Like personalized things for guests to keep? Votive candles, picture frames, shot glasses, measuring spoons, that kind of stuff. At one wedding, my friend make a bunch of little decorative soaps that were swan shaped- she is a bird veterinarian so it fit her personality and they were cute and usable.

Personally, I don’t really like getting things with the bride and groom’s initals or wedding dates on them, and edible stuff usually goes over very well!

@FutureChiBride:  Can you pick anything local? Or just your favorite something or other? I’m getting married on the Jersey shore, so I’ll be doing salt water taffy (yummm). A few other ideas I had:

* Smores

* Coffee mugs (we love coffee)

* black and white cookies

@FutureChiBride:  I would advise you not to do a donation. Basically it is not a favour to your guests and some guests may take issue with the charity that you have chosen.

A charity favour to your guest would be to donate to each individual guests favourite charity and ain’t noone got time for that.

We did playing cards (husband’s family are big card players) for the guys and then lip balm for the girls, they were both a big hit!

I also like edible favours, can never go wrong with those!

I recently attended a wedding where the favors were different kinds of jam. I loved that we got to enjoy the bride’s hard work, and the jam was mighty delicious! I myself had been back and forth between what to do for favors, and have come to the conclusion of going with an edible favor, as I feel like they would less likely go to waste, especially when wedding budgets are tight! We don’t have time for something as time consuming as jam, so we’ve decided to a bbq rub (just need the ingredients and containers; mix and divide!) as it will be the beginning of barbeque season!
