Nothing with your names/dates unless you can take it off. I mean they are cute, but they either never get taken, used, or just plain ole’ thrown away. Get favors that are either tasty, or very useful.

We are doing a candy buffet as the favor. It creates visual interest at the reception with bright colors and fun glass jars. But it’s also something people can take home and enjoy later. I’ll be making some little personalized to go bags.

I think anything edible is usally safe and appreciated by guests.

We are doing all kinds of things. We are expecting 45-60 guests, but we are doing about a dozen of all kinds of favors. And when I say all kinds, I mean probably like 20-25 different kinds. And we’re having a very large candy buffet, including candies, brownies, cookies, & cheesecakes.

I know, it’s alot of favors. But that’s just how we are.

For my 21st birthday party, I actually had a raffle for my guests of $500 in prizes. My guests were super happy!

We decided on personalised matchboxes. You can get them for under $1 pp, they are useful, and if there are some left over, they’ll get used by yourselves and family so not wasted. We often light candles over dinner, so it’s sharing this with our guests too (and if the candles at the reception get blown out, they can help themselves to relight them!)

We had a bunch of favours and they were all reusable, cheap and people even asked for the extras.  

Some of my favorites are the reusable coffee sleeves I made for our hot chocolate station, the set of 4 bubble magnets in tins (using cool photos we took during the years BUT not of us ;)), and smore packets for the patio firepits.

All were very cheap and people loved them.  GOOD luck…favours are such a pain in the but to decide on!!!

I’m literally filling organza bags with after dinner mints. The organza bags are white and purple.

We have 70 guests. You can buy the organza bags in bulk on ebay – 100 for anywhere from $5 to $15. I paid $13 for 13 bags of after-dinner mints, which will be more than enough. There will be 20 – 40 mints in each bag.

It’s edible…people will appreciate it after dinner…and all that remains is an organza bag afterward (and if people leave them behind – I might recycle them for a future baby shower. Or for someone else’s wedding :D).

I think edible favors are always a great idea. Try searching for some examples, there’s tons of ideas on pinterest!

I just thought to do favors for my tiny little wedding (14 guests) and decided on decorated sugar cookies in cello bags. Found tons of suppliers on etsy.
