@cuddleBee:  my FI is allergic to chocolate 🙁 we have debated quite a few things (coasters, salt and pepper shakers, throws ect) we were going to do jellybeans in our colours in cute little jars. then it was a personalised mason jar (we are having a punch stand) but its decided on we are doing cake pops with a note saying on behalf of guest we are making a donotion to the MS foundation (FI’s mother has MS)

I did a google seach and everyone was using cello for these, but when I made them for a wedding, we used tulle to go over the kisses.  I think that looked better.  But you can get the IDEA from these.  We use 2 kisses end to end, tulle long enough to go over the kisses and make the “stem” and floral tape to keep the tulle tight and wrap the stem.

 

Here are google examples (with the cello)

We are doing DIY favors too, since our wedding is in January we have muslin bags stamped with our initials and wedding date and inside a little printed card (8 fit on a piece of paper, print, cut and fold!) with a thank you note and directions for our favor which is bags of spices for wine aka Gluhwein (a hot traditional German drink). I believe our total comes out to $50 for 65 people. Two other options we were considering were clear plastic bags with smores…a large marshmallow, two pieces of graham cracker and 4 blocks of hershey’s chocolate bar = 35 cents a person I believe. Last option was cake frosting bags filled with hot cocoa mix and mini marshmallows.  Granted this may not help you if you are not having a winter wedding, but maybe it will spark some more ideas for you! Good luck!

i like the idea of homemade chocolate chip cookies.  they are easy and inexpensive to make and the packaging can be creative and done with little budget.

i made these favours for my best friends wedding and they doubled up as place settings. all you need is a lollipop mould, sticks, chocolate, ribbon and card i made 80 of these for about £30 ($46) 

 

 

same could be done with cookies i guess 🙂
