I’ll look into some things for you but first, your screen name is awesome and your avatar is adorable 🙂

Another idea –

My MIL baked my favorite cookies and used custom cookie cutters from Etsy in the shape of our cats.  We did a donation to the ASPCA but wanted people to takeaway something.

Maybe you can back a shortbread cookie in the shape of something very NY?

It was crazy cheap to do  this – I think less than $50 for the 100 favors we did.

Is your wedding in the US or in the UK…or somewhere else? As an American I would love to recieve a treat thats from Europe and not easily available in the US. Like Flakes or Kinder Eggs (with the toy in it). Maybe you can do the same for your guests from home, get them treats that specifically from the US.

We don’t want to do favors either and we couldn’t find luggae tags that fit in our budget.  We might do these DIY favors I saw on Vintage Glam blog because they’d be ultra cheap. Good luck!

Ditto to D’Orsay’s idea! I also liked the idea of giving out Flakes – I love those things!

If you introduce kinder hippos to the US everyone might emmigrate.  Those things are addictive!!!!!

My fiance is British and I’m from Pennsylvania.  As favors, we’re giving several pieces of English toffee made with Devon cream (he’s from Dartmouth) and maple candies made by my neighbors growing up in PA.  It’s a little treat that shows where we each come from.  We explained it on the favor tags, which are little Moo cards.

I’m from Alabama and my husband is British.  We just went with tea as it is something we both love!

We got a pretty good deal at Adagio Teas (http://www.adagio.com/wedding/index.html)
