    Surely the food they’re serving could get stamped into the carpet…I could get run over by a bus tomorrow lol. I’d get people to pick them up on the way out – you could make a great DIY project out of it i.e. name labels on each and put them all in a lovely basket or something

    Most people like edible favors, but picking up on the way out seems a good way to have then be forgotten. Perhaps non edible favors like a box of matches? What about something that is non candy, like a little jar of jam or honey, cookies, etc?

    they said no to candy what about cookies, cupcakes or chocolate? Can you have those or are they on the no no list? hehehe! I’d think candy would be easier to get out than a oily stain from a piece of beef dropped and smushed into the floor by feet!!

    I’ve seen some cute coffee bean favours around or maybe  some nice honey in a jar. I’ve been given some homemade jam and lemon curd before at a wedding….it was delicious!!!!

    I think I’m going to get stemless wine glasses. You can google loads of practical favors!

    Little bags of awesome coffee beans, little bags of awesome tea, cigars, little jars of jam, seed packets…there are tons of favors that are useful, “cute”, and not candy!

    So a friend of mine had the same problem. What they ended up doing was had a little consession stand outside of popcorn, cotton candy, and a penny candy bar. They set it up during the middle of the reception and then when getting ready to leave it was announce to make a little pit stop before the journey home. On the way out we were presented with a ticket (the ticket was to ensure that no wedding crashers took off with someone esles goodies) we were then asked to continue on to the consession stand. Each bag for the penny candy had a hand written Thank you tag, Pop corn bags had the Bride and grooms initals in their colors along with the date, and the cotton candy sticks had a fortune printed on it along with a Thank you, their new name and the date. It was totally memorable and wonderful.

    We are doing a charity donation – they print off little cards with pin badges on them – something to keep and money goes to a good cause. I think we are also doing little bags of homemade fudge to go along with them

    I like the idea of getting it on the way out – mind you, any excuse to eat!

    Uh, don’t give them gum? What about the other food and the carpet?

    I would probably just take it on the way out anyways.
