i agree that a pretzel snack wouldnt seem like a favor, but it is a great idea.  Especaily since we have the best pretzels in the country!

I think the buckeye candies would be a better favor-favor and there are alot of nice candy shops in philly that make them.  mueller chocolates in the Reading terminal, Lores chocolates on 7th strteet near chestnut, and i’m sure theres others but these two are my favorites 🙂

According to Emily Post-type etiquette, favors are not required since the guests are being treasted to a party at your expense.

However, I think the buck-eye’s would be a great (and yummy) favor!

I, too, am wondering if I’m going to give favors.  Most people think they are cheesy and don’t use them anyway.  I hear that giving chocolates or other edibles is a good idea to some…but I wanted to give something that lasted.  I think if you’re looking to save a few hundred dollars, I doubt anyone will call you "cheap" or other names for not giving a favor.  Again – a lot of them do wind up in the garbage…(guilty! *raising hand*)

I’d say do whichever seems more appealing to you.  Both the pretzels and the buckeyes sounds great.  Even if the pretzels don’t seem like a favor, I think it’s fine.  A friend of mine didn’t do favors at her wedding last May, and I’m sure no one even noticed or cared.
