I would suggest chocolates or something edible they can eat. Perhaps you can even purchase them there, locally. I suggest this because your guests might not be able to transport a favor – or it could break in transit… plus.. who doesn’t enjoy a locally made candy, chocolate or cupcake!

@Blushingbella:  What about chocolate sand dollars.  I know @weddingbound did that for her Destination Wedding and they looked lovely.

I am having a Destination Wedding in Cabo, I’m not doing favors but I am doing welcome bags which I guess could count as their favors.  I am doing plastic stadium cups with “Cabo 2014” on it.  They can use them for their drinks because it is an all-incluse resort.  I am also doing wrislet money holders so that they can keep their tipping money and hotel key with them at all times.

Something like this:


If you don’t like those ideas, shot glasses are always a good idea in my opinion!

We’re doing local chocolates and providing little linen favor bags with ribbon, so guests can fill them up themselves. We’re buying the chocolate when we arrive in Italy. Welcome bags could also double as favors! You could make a cute little tag to hang on the bag so it’s more personalized.

I would definitely get something on site, much more fun to get a Mexican favour! Perhaps a small bottle of tequila, if you can find something reasonably priced, or chocolate?

I thought of another one, since you seemed to be getting married in January, how about Mexican hot chocolate?

TEQUILA! (do do do do do do do…)

If mini tequilas aren’t an option/aren’t your thing, I agree with the local chocolate idea. Or even something super touristy, like a Mexico key chain/bottle opener/shot glass. I don’t like that crap with the name of the couple & wedding date on it, but I’d like any of it from a country I traveled to!

Mexican hot chocolate mix with Mexican hot chocolate stirrers!

The mix is just a spicy hot chocolate with deliciousness like cinnamon mixed in. The stirrer is a 20th century wooden whisk, regional to Mexico, called molinillo. It’s obviously used to stir but it has rings on it that make the typical froth seen on Mexican hot chocolate.

You can buy mini molinillo in bulk from the mercado or in advance online. There are some cheap ones on ebay but I’d recommend buying them there.
