CFAllyce:  Favors are souvenirs for the guests to take home, so edibles don’t need to be avoided just because you have sweets at the wedding. They can always snack on them another time. If you are set on non-edibles please steer clear of personalized items. As PP said candles are a nice idea, many people use them in their homes.

CFAllyce:  Can you post a pic of your centrepieces? We had suuculents on the tables at our wedding (not as favours) and our guests were fighting over who got to take them home! If you can find a way to make it work it could be really nice.

Some edibles that would be cute but obviously a ‘take home’ item would be jam/jelly, honey, apple butter, maple syrup, popcorn, hot cocoa mix, a custom seasoning mix “love is the spice of life”,  a contrainer of mints, cookie mix in a jar, a custom tea or coffee blend. A cousin of mine actually did miniture ketchup bottles because her and her husband both love ketchup and it was cute. 

Other ideas… hand made soaps, small plant, a morning after kit (pain killers, water, breakfast snack), candle, flower seeds, birdseeds….

 

Think about you and your husband and share something important to you.  What are your hobbies? what do you love?

We are having a photo booth at our wedding and we are considering those pictures that the guests take as their favor. Also, rather than having other favors out for the guests to take, we are putting a note at the bottom of our wedding program that says “In lieu of wedding favors, we have made a donation to FFA in memory of the bride’s father.”

CFAllyce:  Generaly people don’t eat the favor if it is edible at the wedding. Also, if you look on the boards about what people would like as a favor (most say a favor is not necessary at all) it is something edible.  One of my favorite favors was a little champagne bottle with a paper straw and a ‘thank you’ tag.

I like the idea of doing matchstick boxes, especially if the centerpieces are all candles! My FH and I will be doing matchstick boxes (with our names and “a perfect match” written on them, because we both love corny puns!) on the tables, as well as pictures from the photobooth. We’re also looking into temporary tattoos – he saw that at a wedding we went to and loves the idea so much.

CFAllyce:  I did packets of flower seeds in a plain brown paper bag, with a cute personalized stamp on the front.

We set up a  couple bags of coffee beans with favor bags next to them. It worked well, since we had a brunch wedding.
