My Fiance and I love photo booths!  We went to a wedding where the favor was a little plastic frame to put our photo strip in and we both loved it!  We each took ours to work to put in our offices.  We loved the idea so much we decided to make that the favor for our wedding as well.

I was at a wedding recently and they did the jam favours with “Spread the Love” tags.  While some people (admittedly myself included) think this is a cliche/pinterest favour, it was a HUGE hit.  I loved it and have used the jam daily since.  Total win!

Anything sweet !!! But as others have mentioned, I think favors are not needed and likely wont be doin them when it comes time for my wedding unless I make them myself with my SO as a nostalgic bonding sort of thing (we make rice krispies together so we may do that).

I’m thinking about doing bbq since everyone is flying in from out of town to a city that’s famous for its bbq. But at the same time, I’m thinking about scratching the bbq since everyone is flying in from out of town. lol (don’t know if they can take it back)

I think my favor was the best! We have a vintage theme and for a favor we gave out vintage keys that were a keychain and double as a bottle opener! Everyone said they loved them

Probably something I could eat and transport easily. I ususally prefer something useful, but lets be real here: When was the last time you saw a useful favor that wasn’t emblazoned with names, dates, faces, hearts, stars or rainbows.

SweetShe:  Your favor is really cool! 

I vote for chocolate a hundred times over. But anything I can eat then and there is a great favor.

Don’t give me mixes. Like pancake mix or something. You think I have time to make pancakes? Or smores kits – that seems to be popular on pinterest. Like what the hell do you think I’m gonna do with that? Eat the chocolate and throw the rest out is what I’m gonna do. I don’t have a fire place/pit.

My favourite are the fancy, local chocolates.

Mints or lollies are always welcome.  Not almonds!  I love chocolates but they have had a tendancy to melt in my handbag before I remember to eat them.

I feel like the edible favors are overkill because I always eat so much at weddings so I don’t really ever eat them. The best favors I have gotten have been playing cards- when don’t you need a new deck? or pens. I can say I have used both regularly.

I like chocolate candy or cookies.

We are doing pizza slices in individual pizza boxes with our new monogram on the front and water bottles.  Most of our guests are going on a shuttle to an after party and this is a good in between snack.  The guests who aren’t will also like the late night snack before heading home after dancing and drinking. 🙂

Maple syrup but that might just be because I’m Canadian. But what I think would have the most meaning is a donation made to a charity that matters to the bride and groom.
