What about a favor with a baseball printed on it? We’re doing pint glass favors with a hops design on it (we’re both beer nerds).

I would take the position that I could use any favor I wanted, that the venue couldn’t provide.

Could you use packets of caramel flavored microwave popcorn? It is edible, but certainly not at the wedding, so nothing the venue could provide.

this couple have packets of pancake mix in a box labelled “Batter,Batter”

(also something the venue couldn’t provide)

 

 

along the same vein, you could make up jars of cookie mix, box them with the instructions to finish and bake,and apply a “batter, batter” label

In this case, I’d probably just skip the favor.

I would do a donation in lieu of, especially in this case.

I think the photobooth is more than enough.

Also, I would double check with the venue.  Most venues will allow you to bring food as long as you can provide the license from that vendor and their insurance or a waiver of liability (like, if you were to provide your own cake, for instance).  I don’t think it’s fair if you’re going to have a favor that is going to be sealed and not eaten on the premises for them to dictate something like that, especially if it’s some candy or something.  I understand why venues do that (they don’t want the guests getting sick and someone suing them when they got sick from someone else’s food), but it doesn’t make sense when it comes to edible favors that people are taking home.

Just don’t have favors then. No need to pass along useless trinkets that just end up in landfills. I wouldn’t use anything listed here as a suggestions (cute as they may be!). Overly cutesy themed stuff really makes me cringe, too…”Hey, batter batter” is a great example of that.

@MrsBaconBit:  That’s a really cute idea. I hope it works out!

Skip favors, do a donation, or do the photobooth. Honestly, all that other stuff might look “cute,” but it’s just a waste of money and resources, and it will all end up in the garbage.
