@bibbleskipmy wedding is the weekend after yours! After attending a wedding this past September where jam was the favors, I definitely decided I wanted to do an edible favor. Why? Because I loved the jam, and I knew it wasn’t something that people would just toss aside or throw out. I don’t want to pay for something that is just going to get discarded. However, the bride said making the jam was very time consuming (she also had a few different flavors), and I wanted something that was reasonably priced. So I think I’ve finally decided on a BBQ rub similar to this post: http://somethingturquoise.com/2013/04/19/diy-homemade-love-spice-favor-jar/.  There are places where you can buy spices in bulk for pretty cheap like the Christmas Tree Shop or in and around my hometown we have the Amish who sell spices for reasonable prices. The containers listed here are ~$1 depending on how many you order. 

I figured you’d have to invest in a few spices, buy the containers, throw it in a bowl, mix it together and dispense into containers! To me this is the easiest, most practical favor that isn’t time consuming.

We did candies in a corked test tube.  Very reasonably priced and people thought they were really cool.  We had other chemistry-themed decoration though.

@MsGinkgo:  Honey sticks. They come in lots of different flavors, and they’re delicious… as a kid I loved to just eat them straight. As an adult, I squeeze them into my tea. LOVE them.

$15.00 for 100 of them, they’re SUPER affordable! Even if you wanted 5 per guest, it’s only $75!  Or, just get the bundle of 1000 of them for $130 and give 10 per guest. 🙂

You could tie them together with a ribbon in your wedding color, and tie on a tag that says, “Meant to bee!” or something like that.

Or, make a couple pre-bundled, and have a honey bar where people can mix and match their own flavors. 🙂

 

 

Plus, super easy to put together, and PERFECT for a May/Spring wedding! 🙂

We are going the candy buffet/dessert buffet route.

I wanted something edible.. and something that didn’t have our names plastered all over them. I didn’t want to be stuck with a bunch of cheap type favors that I won’t have a use for.

And, I think candy buffets are AWESOME looking.

@MsGinkgo:  We got little favor boxes from a party supply store ($16 for 100 of em). I was going to make them on my Cameo paper cutter but ran out of time.
Then I made little paper snowflakes on the cameo to tie into the theme a bit.
Then we found Lindt truffles at Costco for a bag of 50 for $6 (sale. Normal is $10 I think) and bought a bunch of those. 3 truffles per box. Added a cute little 1/2 bow.
This is how it turned out, and people LOVED them.
