    Ditto the TSA concerns if that was the size you were planning to give.  Honestly, I only notice favors when they detract in a negative way.  One example of would be when they are really self-serving like a photo of you in a picture frame rather than focusing on usabilty and guest enjoyment.  Or another example is when they’ve clearly spent considerable time and money doing a personalized favor like wine glasses etched with their name and wedding date but then that they skimped on other things that would have made the actual wedding far more enjoyable like having enough food during a dinner time reception.

    Otherwise they are nice, but I don’t miss them or feel unappreciated if they aren’t there.  

    So short version: I would not listen to your mother and overload your guests with small trinkets.  One item is fine.  Even nothing is fine.

    I would love the honey or the soap. I would not take the almonds or the frame with me.

    girlandherpearl :  the honey is “enough” but my big concern would be how many guests are flying? Honey is considered a liquid by TSA and your guests wouldn’t be able to carry it on the plane.

    No. As a guest I’d rather you not waste money on little things, would rather have the money go on a bar tab or extras at the reception! The honey is nice, but keep in mind if you have any international guests they might not be able to take it.

    I would skip favors entirely.

    I know this has been answered, but I LOVE the honey idea! If you could get it in a size that people could put in their carry-on, I think it would be good. Although.. that would be a very small portion. I also think the soap is a good idea too. At first I thought you just meant a picture frame, not one with you in it lol. An empty one might be nice, but a little weird for me if the couple is handing out pictures of themselves. I wouldn’t exactly see that as a “favor”.

    One favor is more than enough. Your mom’s reasoning doesn’t make sense as if people are upset about having to fly to Hawaii a picture frame isn’t going to make them not upset. If the honey doesn’t come in TSA size get something else, but do not get personalized things.
