you could have the buffet and give out the boxes empty so guests can fill them from the buffet as a “snack for the road”

Joymarie-  I am having the same dilemma. I wasn’t sure I even wanted to do favors knowing that most favors I’ve received from weddings usually end up in the trash. My mom wanted to do flower bulbs so that people could plant them and think of us each year when they come up. I thought that was a nice idea, but I wasn’t sure how many of my guests would actually plant them. I knew if it were me I wouldn’t because I kill cactus I have such a brown thumb. Then she suggested these magic bean things that sprout with a bean that has the word love written on it. Again, planting- something she’s good at and I thought it was cheesy. I wanted to go with something edible or something useful that people could use. My friend gave out matchbooks but had a lot left over and was begging her wedding party to take more. I think I may ultimately go with jordan almonds accompanied by this poem.

Five sugared almonds for each guest to eat
     To remind us that life is both bitter and sweet.
     Five wishes for the new husband and wife —
     Health, wealth, happiness, children, and a long life.

 

Jordan almonds are very traditional and it would be relatively inexpensive too. Right now it’s my top pick unless something else strikes my fancy. Best wishes with your search!

I am having a desert/candy bar for our favors.  We are placing the sweets out for people to take and they can either eat them while they are dancing or drinking (chocolate + beer = yum!), and bought lunch sacks that I am going to jaze up for people to take things home in.  Most of the time I am at a wedding I usually eat the eatable favor there anyways. You could always have some sort of bowls for people to grab stuff (depending on how much you are planning on putting out) and the boxes for people to grab a little something on their way out?

Ok, so now that I’ve done some reading about favors- I’m re-thinking the jordan almonds thing. Now I’m thinking either jelly belly jelly beans or chocolate dipped pretzel rods. Most people seem to hate the almonds. They are rather difficult to crunch.
