It depends on how much money you want to spend… we’re passing out flower bulbs (that you plant) of the flowers of the wedding. Every year they pop up, people will think of our wedding!

 Many people don’t actually take their favors though, and a lot of people don’t especially care about them. I wouldn’t worry too much about making them something really special…just something little. Also, don’t monogram them with your names, or the wedding date or anything like that because people just throw them away….

are there any unique details to your wedding? special decorations, themes, etc? Try incorporating something special (like your heritage maybe?) I went to a Christmas wedding once where the favors were christmas tree decorations. Or maybe do a photo booth with a little printer and give out inexpensive photo frames. (You can put the pic of you and your guests in it for now, and they can change the pic later if they want to)

 

Good luck!

I think people strongly prefer edible favors, so I would go that route. As PP said, it would be helpful if you could tell us about your theme/colors/etc to give you ideas. It’s not that original, but we are having an art nouveau themed wedding so we are having these delicious iced sugar cookies made with an art nouveau motif on them. They will add to the table decor and be tasty.

You could do some sort of shaped chocolate candy. For instance, I saw one wedding where they had little chocolate masks on a stick for a masquarade theme. Do you have a particular theme that you could tie in with the favors? If you want to use the jelly beans and the champagne glasses make it too expensive you could always make some pretty decorative cones. Oh going on that thought, it might be fun to make those new years crackers and fill them with jelly beans or other candy. 

We’re having cake in a jar for ours and some little birdie tea lights.

I love your champagne glass/jelly belly idea!  Are the plastic champagne flutes too cheap looking?  You can get those in bulk – pretty cost effective…or what about clear jam-sized jars filled with jelly bellys? Ikea has some spice jars I’ve bought before that aren’t too expensive (about $1 each).

@MGorsh They were the bottom picture I posted. It’s a tube that is filled with goodies and usually made out of some sort of paper. You pull the ends of the “cracker” and it opens with a pop. 

And an open one:

If lavender is one of your colors, you could do lavender wands.

My wedding colors are Chocolate, Vanilla and Red Velvet (There is a Sweet Theme for sure) and I saw these DIY Hot Chocolate favors and I think I am going to do this.

I’m having a beach themed wedding and will be making candy beach glass to give as a favor. Before I decided on that though, I was going to do star and shell shaped sugar cookies.  You could do castle, princess, frog ( or knight), and ring shaped sugar cookies in a gift bag labeled ” …and they lived happily ever after ”     Check amazon for cookie cutters if you like the idea.

What about something small from a favorite place you enjoy as a couple?  For example my fiance and I love coffee, so we will be giving bags of coffee beans for our favors.

Cake Balls!  We used them and they were a huge hit, very few people have seen or had them before and people just love them.  They have some beautiful boxes at papermart.com you can put them in.
