Cake Balls or Pops.  We did them and they went over huge.  Super cheap and super easy.

Definately something useful, ie a packet of seeds (forget-me-nots are blue), or something you can eat. No one keeps the trinkets that you have engraved with your date. Don’t waste your money!

@ashley1202:  I made them myself.  Super easy to do.  I will post how if you would like.

Cookies! Get them from a local bakery and wrap them a little clear box with blue and/or white ribbon.

Seconding cookies, but they’re easy to DIY, and out of all the baked goods, they’re some of the cheapest. You can get food-safe plastic bags at JoAnn’s or online and silver twist-ties or ribbon to tie them with, you can put cute tags on them if you want, and you can always make them match your wedding colors with glaze (basically powdered sugar and milk, a lot of times) and dragee or jimmy sprinkles.

Just sayin’. I love cookies.

Cake Balls –

Bake a cake from a box or recipe normally.  When it is cooked, I let it cool then shove the whole thing into a large baggie and smoosh it all up into crumbs.  Put the crumbs into a bowl and mix in half (sometimes alittle more) can of a complimenting frosting.  Once it is mixed, put the whole bowl into the freezer and let it freeze for an hour or two.  Once frozen, I use a cookie scoop but have done it by hand, make one inchish balls and put them on a cookie sheet or platter.  Put them back in the freezer.  Melt a package of melting chocolate, I go back and forth between the double boiler kind and the microwave kind.   Once the chocolate is melted, take the balls out of the freezer and dip them into the chocolate and put back on the cookie sheet or place them into mini cupcake papers.  I put them into the freezer for a few minutes to set them.

Favorite combos

Strawberry Cake, buttercream frosting, and white chocolate.

Red Velvet Cake, Sour cream frosting, dark chocolate

German chocolate cake, pecan carmel frosting, reg chocolate

Dark chocolate cake, fudge frosting, peanut butter dipping chocolate (  I have only found this at christmas time)

You could make chocolate by using candy molds and candy melts. That way you could incorporate blue into your wedding favor. It’s really easy, just melt the candy melts and pour into the chocolate molds.

I used to do this in college when I organized large events. I ordered cookies with custom fortunes (meaning you write your own fortunes. You get 4, and then each fortune after 4 costs extra) and sometimes I would get them pre-decorated (i.e. blue chocolate with white sprinkles, dark chocolate with confetti sprinkles) or I would order them plain and buy bulk candy melts and decorations and decorate them myself. All you have to do is melt the candy melts, dip the fortune cookies in the melted candy, and then dip in the decorations (so you could do blue chocolate, and silver pareils).
