So we have been going back and forth with favors for a while now. (We also recently just found out that we need to rent the limo for an extra hour due to the travel distance between the church and reception = an extra $160)
Anyways, Fiance and I both LOVE donuts. I love donut holes even more. So I was thinking of either having them as favors, and putting 2 or 3 in little bags for the guests to pick up closer to the end of the reception. Or we would have the staff put them out later in the night as sort of a late night snack..
Honestly, if we were at a wedding and dancing/drinking all night, having some fresh donuts to munch on towards the end of the night would be awesome! And I don’t want to spend money on favors that people are going to leave behind.
What do you think? Should we keep brainstorming or go with something that we love?

I lik the donuts idea. These days I think everyone has been conditioned to eat something a little later. It’s different and cute and goes well with coffee. Go ahead and serve them there because I have learned from past experience that the donuts will either A. not get picked up i.e. you are left with tons of donut holes B. they make it out of the room but never get eaten. So even if Cousin Mark eats a whole dozen himself at least they will disappear and your money will not be wasted! Hope that helps!

I think this is awesome! Especially if they are fresh!

It really depends on the guests, but I would personally prefer to have something to take home with me, I usually turn down snacks at events because I’m to excited to eat, but then I get home and I’m hungry!

I’m the exact opposite as bells. . . haha. I would MUCH rather have a late night snack and never take anything home with me. I’m personally not a fan of favors.

Both? lol I love them too! Maybe you could have them a smaller amount put out for the late night snack and then that way once their gone, people could break into their favors early if they wanted more.

I love the new late night snack trend. I say go for it, it would be a really nice treat.
Maybe you can have the donot holes put in bags, but still pass them out. If someone wants to eat them when they are passed out they can, if they want to wait they can.
