I think the slice of cake and milk is plenty.  Its something they will actually eat and enjoy.  I much prefer that to "novelty" type food items that rarely ever get eaten.   What are you having the guests put their piece of cake in?

I think that’s plenty. I would eat that and be very happy.

Cake and milk — yum yum!  Should be plenty.  I was going to suggest truffles when reading the topic, but cake and milk is better.  Tea and honey would likely get left behind — especially the honey.  You don’t want that to start leaking in your purse or suitcase…

If your doing the cute little monogram bakery boxes, then i would definiely leave it at that. Most other favors tend to get left behind and only appreciated by a select few, IMO.

I like the chocolate place card idea the best.  I am using my engagement picture and they will print the guest’s name and table # right onto the chocolate.  What a good idea, I need place cards and this is also my favor.  If you want to see what I am talking about go to: http://www.chocolatedreamsandwishes.com

We’re doing Ring Pop’s in brown boxes wrapped in pink and brown floral paper.  (my Fiance proposed with a Ring Pop on April Fools Day)

We’re going to insert a small card into the box with our engagement story on it.

We were also considering personalized M&M’s.

Chocolates! 🙂 My friend gave out cupcakes at a recent wedding. On the other hand, we are considering personalised mint tins (but with only the date of our wedding, as opposed to our names so that it’s less personal but yummy enough for people to take them along) and chocolates (which are sponsored by our venues).

We went to a wedding where they gave out Pez dispensers as favors.  They were super cute and well-received.  After we sat down at our table, we spent the first five minutes bartering trades to get the Pez dispenser we wanted.

cake and milk is great 🙂  but if you really want, I think the sort of thing you can eat as is are most likely to get used, so chocolate and candy, as opposed to tea, honey, maple syryp or jam.  I have to say I have yet to use any of the later group and I’ve received basically all of them at weddings, even if I do ordinarily sometimes eat these things.  I just forget about the favour sized ones.
