    We’re using an original recipe I made for caramel and doing a caramel chex mix.  We’ve made several batches as gifts, and now our friends/family are asking for more, so we thought it’d be a good favor.  In all honesty, an edible favor the only type of favor I ever enjoy.  All of the little picture frames, paperweights, wine corks, etc., at best get recycled into an art project, but most just end up in the trash.  I feel bad that the bride spent the money, but I just have no use for those types of items.

    I don’t care for favors and actually appreciate NOT getting one.

    I can take or leave favors…I’ve never come across one that I was ecstatic about.  I think dinner and cake is what really makes a wedding.  🙂

    But I echo what others say…if you’re going to have one, make it consumable!  Doesn’t have to be food necessarily, but make it something that can be used up and won’t hang around in someone’s junk drawer.

    I am giving them a $200 meal. They don’t need a cup with my name on it or sunglasses or a little bell on top of it
