You could do the m&m’s in your colors (not personalized), and then just personalize the bag/box/whatever you put them in?

We’re doing a couple chocolate hugs and kisses in a piece of pink tuile with brown ribbon with a note that says “Hugs and Kisses from the new Mr. and Mrs.” then we’ll put our names and wedding date on it.

What is your theme? Do you have anything that is important to you & your Fiance or something you both enjoy/ love?

I’m making scarves, but we’re also thinking of getting personalized matches…we’re only having about 100 guests.

Hmm.. not sure what you could do for a $1 , maybe candles? Our favors are mints in tulle with white and blue ribbons that say mint to be on the tags.

Hi,

I loved my favors because my guests still have them.  I purchased 3×4 inch frames or smaller from this one website that specialies in party favors.  I had 18 tables and 10 people per table so i thought it would be cute if every seat per table had a different style favor so i bought 18 of 10 different style frames.  Some were $0.99 and the most expensive frame was $1.29.  Then i printed this one picture from Cancun, that’s where he proposed.  Guest loved the favors and most have the favor in their house somewhere. 

Good luck.

we’re doing small cellophane bags filled with two cookies made by my fiance’s step mom: snickerdoodles (which are my favorite) and these raspberry cookies (which are my fiance’s favorite). we’re also doing take home jam jars that my fiance’s step mom also makes.

Edibles are best since everything else gets tossed out. At the same time, they are not required and many people skip them if they can’t afford them and/or don’t want them and no one notices that they aren’t there. There are tons of options that are cheaper than the personlized M&Ms. Cookies, other types of candy, homemade jam, etc.

I agree with *iggies* and *ember78* on this one.  Edible favors are really great for a number of reasons.  I’ve been to SOOO many weddings where people leave behind their non-edible favors at the end of the night.  But I’ve never seen edible favors go to waste – someone always eats them!  Also, they can be cheaper and a great little snack throughout the evening (should someone want it) 🙂 

My mom is famous for her buttermilk cut-out cookies so she made enough for each of our guests and decorated them with our monogram, in our colors.  Then, my aunts all made a few dozen of the cookies they are famous for and we created a cookie table with bags so that guests could either graze the table throughout the evening or bag up some cookies on their way out the door.  It was a hit and NOT ONE cookie was left standing!!!!  I’ll try to post some pics….my Mom did a great job with this!

We may have a candy buffet with little boxes that guests can fill with their favorite choices.  Martha Stewart has some fantastic photos of CBs that can match your color theme

Gosh I just hate favors!!!  But I think guests should go home with something. Since we are having many catered desserts (pies, smaller cakes, cookies, etc…)  I decided to send everyone home with a slice of wedding cake in these great little boxes

So I’ll be the odd bee out but have you thought about not doing traditional favors and instead donating the money you would have spent to a charity/organization that means a lot to you?  So many times, favors go unnoticed or unwanted…but instead you could make a donation (even if it’s tiny, like $1/person!) on behalf of your guests and leave a small note for them explaining this.  I think we are going that route; it’ll certainly be less stressful too!  Why buy cheap candy or whatever when people might not even eat them?
