futuremrsJR:  Had someone do little jars of honey (father of the bride raises honey bees) and they were adorable and taste amazing. That’s pretty much it. Got a mix CD from a cousin’s wedding, but it stuff they like and I’ve listened to it once :/

Went to a wedding where the bride & groom had made homemade bottles of limoncello as favours. It tasted sooooo good!! We brought one home and cooled it in the fridge and it was super nice ๐Ÿ˜€

Favors are stupid. Necessary at 5 year olds birthdays, not weddings.

I bought mason jar mugs (which they used for their drinks) and used one of those chalkboard sticker on each and wrote my guests’ names on them and that was their favor as well as a YAY flag if they wanted to take them. ๐Ÿ™‚  I also did special favors for the kids with plastic mason jar mugs with their name in stickers.

My friend had a photobooth and just let people take the photos home as long as they left one of the two copies.

But I don’t think favors are really necessary anymore.  I just did mine because what am I going to do with like 50 mason jar mugs?

I was at a wedding where the favor was this awesome cookie from the bakery of the hotel the groom proposed.  It was delicious!  I also have many photos from photobooths at some weddings.  I especially love one of all us bridesmaids and the bride’s father making silly faces.  I know, it sounds ridiculous, but it was very fun!

We got mini bottles of wine at a wedding and were so happy! We should have consumed them at our hotel though, because they were instantly confiscated at the airport. 

In general, I never love favors, and much prefer consumables. We had black & white cookies at our wedding and pashminas. All got taken.

I did salt water taffy in little silk organza bags, and none were left at the end of the day so I’m going to assume they were well recieved.

My cousin had a photobooth which doubled as their guestbook. 2 copies of the photos were printed, one for you and one for the book. I thought this was a really cute, and fun idea. My DH still carries the photos of us from that day in his wallet because they’re just the right size.

Nope but I’m hoping people like ours! I got the idea from Pinterest.

Hot chocolate mix with marshmallows and chocolate chips.

My sister in-law donated to a charity that meant something to them on behalf of the guests and put the little charity pins on the place cards for everyone to wear while they were at the wedding. I’m planning on making fudge or something sweet that will last at least 2 weeks so I can make it early. I’m hoping it will mostly get eaten as late night snacks by the end of the night. It’s also probably only going to cost roughly $1.50 per person.  I’ve also been to weddings were the favours were the wedding cupcakes or photos from the photobooth.  I’m sure hardly anyone would notice if you decide not to do anything.

futuremrslobanov:  Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€

I thought it’d be perfect since our wedding is at the end of November. Plus I love hot chocolate so I’ll use any extra ones!

We’re doing scratch lotto tickets for our wedding favors.  We’re getting married on 7-11 and our state has a 7-11 scratch ticket.  Hopefully it will be fun for the guests and give them a conversation piece when they’re seated.
