Hi all! I am hoping to get your new and unique ideas on favors. I am SO stuck. I’ve alotted about $300 – $400 for them. Initially I was planning on doing s’more packages, but I’m inside a large hall and I’m not sure how I would be able to set up something for cooking the marshmallows without having an open flame. Any tips on this would be great too. I’ve considered favor boxes with little candies in them but I just think there are neater, funner ideas out there! Any suggestions would be FABULOUS. Thanks!

Personally, I like anything edible and think that non-edible favors are just junk.
Stick with chocolate or some other candy and throw it in a box…it’s easy, cheaper than what you’ve alloted and will be likely to please the greatest amount of people!

Do you have any theme to your wedding? Any activities you and your Fiance love to do? favorite foods? Are either of you of a different ethnic background? How many guests?

agreed with Miss Orchard, stick to something edible. A cute idea I saw recently instead of the favors was a trail mix bar where guests can make thier own trail mix, way healthier than candy bar, but still cool
I don’t know where you are on the planet, but weddings that have freshly picked bags of cherries or apples or things as favors are always pretty high in my book, maybe getting a jar of local honey or maple syrup as you are having a fall wedding… just a thought

Do you need the favors? No reason that you can’t just save the money…
As for s’mores, you can make s’more pops and place them in a plastic bag with ribbon and you’re done. No need to provide fire.

Im from Alberta, Canada. We’re having a big, small town wedding. My theme/look I’m going for is modern and romantic. Colors are grey, charcoal and white. My centerpieces are tall curly willow center pieces with crystals hanging from them. I’d definitely like to do something, rather than nothing and I agree that edible is the way to go… Living your thoughts, thank you!!

Sorry I meant Navy, charcoal and white…

make your own little burlap sacks and fill them with apples
a basket filled with a muffin and some fruit, you could use apples
given that your wedding is on the day of a full moon, you could gift a container of nuts,
We are Nuts About Each Other
or these amazing chocolate nuts from Etsy

I love the idea of a s’mores pop. So fun!
If that’s not your thing, maybe something to do with the fall, like maple syrup jars, or jam/jelly jars?

We are doing a hot cocoa mix in mason jars. We are putting some hot cocoa powder with marshmallows on top and then the tag will read “Our Warmest Thanks” and how to prepare it. (all they have to do is add hot water and stir) We thought it was a cute idea. You could do something like that…I’ve even seen a lemonade mix.

OOH! You’re from Alberta too!
Sadly, we’re mostly known for wheat and beef. Although as a pp poster suggested, we also have good honey.
I vote chocolates or s’more pops. If you want to go the honey route, http://www.bearyberryhoney.com/ is amazing. They’re our favourite farmer’s market people and make amazing flavoured honey.

There are indoor S’Mores kits. You could probably get them at Walmart or ebay. I’ve seen them for all kinds of prices. You could certainly shop around for less. I don’t know how many you’d need for your # of guests.

Homemade pumpkin or apple butter in cute decorated jars would be fabulous for a fall wedding. As a guest, I would love to recieve something like that. If you feel like being extra fancy, throw in some bread or cookies to go along with it.

I love the s’mores idea, my best friend is doing a s’more bar and has a firepit. Although, just having the s’mores on the table is good they can make it at home. Its the thought that counts anyways. I personally love the idea of the apples in bags and muffins in the basket. I think I might have to think about that. Love the honey idea as well, but can get very pricey depending on how many guests. I wanted to do honey because we call each other honey. But for about 180 guest its a lot. Good luck. Any treat idea is good. Everyone will love it!!
