If you can stick to paper projects (easy to transport b/c their flat) that would be best.  

Personalized menus, candy/cookie buffet bags, escort cards, signs, etc. 

Programs are very nice to have.  I always appreciate them.  But yes, unless it is a close family member I throw them out afterwards.  However, I really do enjoy having them at the event.  Especially if they lay out the ceremony & reception details, give the names of the parents/wedding party.  Maybe that is just me, but I love to know who is who & what is going on.

Little personalized drink stirrers for signature drinks is also a nice, unexpected detail.

Table numbers in frames are pretty easy too. We are having espresso so I made up some biscotti as a homemade treat. Super simple.

DIY is nice but honestly most weddings I go to are 0% DIY and no one cares. I, meanwhile, have too much time on my hands and did a million because I love crafting. Everything was very easy and cheap:

I made these invitations super easily. Got them cut and printed from a local stationery place, and Corner Chomped the corners:

You could make some signs. If you’re not too crafty the chalkboard signs out of old picture frames are pretty easy to make. Then you could put whatever you want on the sign… a quote you like, your initials, a sign for the bar or for the favors…

Here’s an example and tutorial: http://www.intimateweddings.com/blog/diy-wedding-chalkboard/
