I am taking the easy way out and doing the candy bar idea for wedding favors.  I am setting up a table w/ our favorite types of candy and goody bags.  Nobody really wants a tiny picture frame, votive candle, or any other junky thing w/ our name on it.

I’m doing wedding cookies (aka mexican wedding cookies, russian tea cookies, butterballs, or italian wedding cookies).  They are so easy to make– pretty much just butter, powdered sugar, nuts, and flour  :o) and oh so yummy.

We are doing animal crackers, but we are also getting married at a zoo…

I think anything edible is good. We had also thought about making a donation to an organization that is important to us. We were going to do (and may still) make a donation to the American Cancer Society because we have had cancer on both sides of our families.

We folded origami boxes and filled them with a wildflower see mix and wrapped them with some ribbon and added a tag so the guest know what they are for. Plus we will have some mints.

I spent ages dithering about favours, and in the end I decided I’m gonna roll the couple hundred I would have spent on them, into the food and drink budget instead. For a signature cocktail/better dessert buffet or such. I do think the candy/cookie or similar buffet are a great idea though. Just don’t go faffing about with candles or frames or such.

photo booth: have your guests paste one strip in an album for you to have as a guest book, and they can take the other strip home as a favor! My friend did this at her wedding and it was such a hit!

We are doing chocolates.  I agree with the other bees that edible is practical and not to mention yummy! I really love the idea of a donation- to a sentimental charity of your choice, and it always feels good to give! 🙂
