I always prefer edible favors, but that’s just because I love chocolate- You could also consider candy apples, or maple syrup- maybe less likely to melt, but still very New Husband (I grew up there…)

You’ll probably find that edible favors will be the most popular, especially amongst us bees. People will leave “stuff” they don’t like or don’t want to take home, but they’ll eat or save for later something yummy.

We considered chocolate, but went with maple drops instead (maple sugar hard candy, basically). Things that can break easily (like glass) are difficult to travel with if your guests are from Out of Town, and as you said, chocolate melts easily.

Given your choices, I’d still go with sweet & yummy as opposed to, well, useless. What will your older guests do with a shot glass? And what would you rather deal with as “leftovers”? We got to enjoy our extra candies all winter long ๐Ÿ˜€

Yeah, I don’t think I’d go with a shot glass. It might be a fun memento, but some people who don’t drink might not be interested. Also, all of my shot glasses that I’ve been given as gifts, souvenirs, gags, etc just sit in a cabinet and rarely come out since I don’t drink much. I would definitely go with something edible!

If I had to pick a favor, I would pick something edible. Most non-edible favors go into the thrift shop donation box as soon as I get  home from the wedding.

Having said that, I also think most edible favors are a complete waste of time and money. Do you honestly thank that I, as a guest, feel that my attendance at your wedding is more appreciated  by you because you give me a chocolate or a few almonds?

Just thank me for my support and attendance in the groom’s speech.

@julies1949:  I’m definitly doing a thank you speech….and cards!!!

But I’m probley going to do an edible favor, like mints maybe. Alot of our desert table is going to be chocolate, so I thought a cute little box with some mints or something. Or is that totally lame??

I think the edible sounds nice. I would just be worried about the heat too. I have a friend who was married in September and had M&M’s at the wedding as part of the candy bar. They had to transport them with ice packs, and keep them cool for weeks before the wedding. She said it was a huge pain and she would never have done that again.

As much as I would love your idea, I might opt for something edible that is not meltable.

Another thing you might consider is a small plant that it native to that area. We did plants for our favors. Only two were left. One was my grandma’s. One was my brothers. And they both told me the left them and asked if I had more because they wanted them. I think they were well liked. It is nice to see them at our friend’s houses when we go too.

Definetly edible.  We are getting our favorite truffles from a candy shop in Littleton, New Husband.  I love the hard candy maple leaves.
