    We are having favors. I bought little flower seed packets off ebay that have a cute little verse and our wedding date on them. They are cute and useable and only like $0.21 ea so cheap!

    My Mother-In-Law made a ton of her secret recipe toffee and bagged it in cellophane and tied it up with a pretty ribbon and silk leaf. The wedding was 3 months ago and I’m still get calls and emails from our guests begging for the recipe.

    It was New Year’s Eve so my favours were the party hats, tiaras, and noise makers.

    Yep, we’re providing favors. They are actually one of my favorite elements of our wedding. Yay for orchard mini apple pies!

    I’m going with a candy buffet. I’ve never seen it at a wedding here, and there will be a lot of kids at our wedding, so it should be fun. Once their parents supervise them, haha!

    yep, organic homebrew!  i love edible favors, not so much a fan of monogramed or personalized tchotchkes.

    @futuremrsoloyede: I was toying with not having anything, because I couldn’t find anything that felt right, and when she offered to make them, it was a big YES! moment. It was perfect and personal.

    We were not going to have any, but after having cake balls at all the holiday parties I had a ton of requests for them.  So I will be making them for the wedding favors in four different flavors.

    We did a donation to the rescue organization where we got our dog.  To tell people that I found these eco-friendly small boxes, filled with dog bone candies, wrapped in ribbon and then it has a tag telling about the dontation and also a picture of our beloved pooch Harley! (Side Note: Harley went missing from a boarding facility while my fiance and I were on a trip with my family…he was gone for 15 days before we found him.  All of my friends and family went through the ordeal with us so we thought this would be a great way to bring him into our wedding since he cant actually be there)

    I would be fine without giving a favor because I sort of feel like it’s a waste of money. My mother thinks we really should give a favor, so we’ll likely do something edible/consumable, maybe chocolates.

    We got a discount on mini (6 inch) bottles of wine, so we are giving those as favors and we are donating the money we saved to charities that mean a lot to us.

    We had them.  We had donuts and M&M’s in paper boxes.
