I’m so indecisive when it comes to wedding favours because all my favourite ideas I can’t do, particularly because most of them need to survive a flight back to the UK for overseas guests (and get through customs!) so either it would be something little or something edible. Though I’m a little on the fence about edibles just because we’re having a huge dessert bar! And I definitely don’t want anything monogrammed or with the date on it. Ack!
So these are my current shortlist but I’m so lost on this one I need some help, ladies! And because I like polls with pictures….
Little boxes of personalised candies in different flavours
Magnets with ‘Merci’
Magnets with different love sayings – the idea would be to put them in a box with “please take one” (or many!)
Different flavours of popcorn at the table for guests to nibble on (got this after becoming obssessed with popcorn again after another thread haha gotta love wb)
Or because we are having quite a small wedding I like the idea of a little box with something specific for each guest (even if it’s just their favourite chocolates or something) but I feel like I’m just setting myself up to be stressed with that one!!

I like the magnets. My niece got married and got palm tree magnents from the Dollar Store and wrote her and the grooms intials and the date of the wedding on the palms. They are still on our fridge, and I always wish her happy anniversary on the right date!
We did try the chocolates, with our names on the wrapper, they melted during the shipping process, just something to be aware of!

Yeah I think we’re probably leaning towards the magnets – it’s a memento but something everyone can use. I was intending to DIY them so we can make them something a bit special to us and have a few different ones so that couples don’t end up with 2 identical magnets to take home. I wasn’t intending on directly referring to our wedding on them but the anniversary reminder is a good reason to! 😛 I’m really forgetful with my friends’ anniversaries so I know I’d love that.

Do you NEED favors? If you’re having a dessert bar, couldn’t you just consider that your favor? I would treat that as more than enough! Maybe have some little take-out boxes for them to take some dessert back to the hotel if they’d like:

@RapunzelRapunzel: Yeah I don’t know if we do… I’m on the fence! The take out boxes are an awesome idea!! I think it’s between that and the magnets for me now 🙂

I picked the ‘Merci” magnets because I love all things French!
