Anything food. For no trash and DIY, maybe making shortbread/cookies?

FOOOOOD! Sweets!  One of the best wedding favors I had was a box of 6 Godiva chocolates for each person.  Oooh so good

Edibles. Even if it’s a foodie wedding, edibles are ALWAYS appreciated at the end of the night.

I agree with the above- but just not those pastel colored candies (I think they’re almonds?) I have yet to find someone who loves those.

We weren’t planning on doing favors at all, but in the end, my friend who was helping organize decided the tables would look too bare, and decided to make rice crispy treats. They were delicious!

I love edible favors.  If I can’t eat it, I most likely will leave it behind.

I think most favors chosen by us mere mortals are a complete waste of money. Knowing how much time is spent to produce these things, it always saddens me to see some DIY craft, potted plant, packet of seeds etc left on the tables.

I also think that most edible favors are unnecessary and appear like bit of an afterthought. You’ve already wined and dine me all evening, does a macaron or a truffle or two really make a difference?

If I had to choose I would choose an edible favor, a mini bottle or wine or licqueur.

If I had my druthers, I’d rather you spend your $ on other items.

I like food favors because pretty much everyone has a house full of stuff — and they don’t need any more of it. I don’t think an edible favor will appear like an afterthought if you find some really cute way to present/package it.

We are doing M&Ms in our wedding colors and small chocolate bars with a cute little design on the wrapper that say “Love is the greatest adventure” I didn’t really want to do favors at all but my mom suggested them and was really excited about it so I figured why not!

I think food favors really are the way to go since they are the easiest for mass appeal.

Quite honestly save your money.  Favors are so pointless.  It would be one thing if it had some meaning — I was once at a wedding where the bride and groom had canned some jam that was an old family recipe — but if you don’t have anything like that, I would save your money.  That isn’t what people remember about weddings.

If you reall, really, really want to do favours then these are a nice touch however, I agree with PPs who say favours are unecessary. There is no favour I would want as a guest, and my observation at both weddings and corporate events is that these things get left behind / thrown away.
