@purple_orchid:  I would rather the couple spare the expense but if they feel they must provide a favour edible is the only way to go.

Anything I can eat or drink! Anything engraved or any sort of momento from the wedding (like a wine glass or the like with the couple’s names and wedding date on them) always end up in the “for charity” box….

….or spring for a candy bar or late night snack instead, if you wanted to do something?

@purple_orchid:  Edible favors are always the best option in my opinion.

For non-edible favors, my favorite is getting a coozie – we use them all the time and it’s pretty fun to see the entire wedding with them!

The most useless one I’ve ever gotten was a small tealight in a tealight holder that was chalkboard painted with a little piece of chalk.  Like, really?  It felt like such an afterthought, they should have just kept their money.

@purple_orchid:  I’ve never had non-edible favours but little candies or cookies that said thank you on them were nice – it curbed the hunger I had haha (and everyone else) before dinner. It doesn’t have to be anything big.

I am thinking of doing little picture frames that will act as the card holders for escrt cards that they can take home and use. Just little plain ones.

Edible!! I dont really like anything with the couple’s monogram/picture or anything like that on it. I feel like the only people that will keep that are your immediate family and  very  closest friends.

We did mini bottles of champagne and they seemed to be very well received.

Favours are very much OVER-PRICED

Personally, I’d rather see a Couple use the money elsewhere for the benefit of their Guests.

BUT if one feels there needs to be a Favour… then make it edible !!

Food. I’ve been to so many weddings and have tossed anything we’ve gotten that wasn’t edible. I also toss those almond things. Anything else, especially chocolate, I’m all about. I’ve been to a lot of weddings without favors and never noticed.

@purple_orchid:  Chocolate anything! Or else the mini champagne sounds awesome (but I’m not sure where to get those).

@purple_orchid:  I’d prefer no favor.  I like strips from a photobooth.

No home made food.  If you must do something I’d prefer it be from a delicious chocolate shoppe.

Edible. Everything else will end up tossed eventually, unless it’s a candle.

@purple_orchid:  Edible hands down!  The tiny picture frames, fan, and key chains I have received ended up being crap I never used but felt guilty throwing away.  I love cookie favors and chocolate favors- homemade or store bought!
