@Bridebella- put everything together for a recipe and leave out the eggs and other wet ingredients…make out recipe cards and put the mix in mason jars with the cards attached. That way they can take home the recipe and all they have to do is add the wet ingredients and bake the first batch.(does that make sense?)
Just a thought.

I was going to recommend homemade jam. I went to a wedding 6 or so years ago where they gave that as a favor and I loved it!

@MissLily – thanks! That’s a great idea, I’ve done that at Christmas time and people really liked it.

Little jars of apple butter or pumpkin butter would be cool.

Oohhh shoot! I had finally accepted that I wasn’t going to do any favors, but after reading this, I feel like I have to make caramel apples! Dangit!

I vote for something in a jar – like the suggestions of apple/pumpkin butter (YUM!), jam, or honey. 🙂

I’m ordering my caramel apples from Daffy Apples. http://www.daffyapple.com/ I’ve never had them, so I can’t testify that they’re delicious, but they’re low maintenance. And not very expensive. I think they come out to just over a dollar per apple.
I love the pumpkin butter idea– so cute.

We are going to have homemade hot cocoa mix for our wedding on 11/7/09. The label will say our names/date and “The Perfect Blend.” On the back, we will have the directions to make a cup of cocoa with the mix. I made this recipe last Christmas, but it never made it as gifts because we drank it. Oops.

One of our employees is having another employee make homemade jams as wedding favors since they’re getting married on a barn/farm. I think it’s just the cutest thing ever.

These are all such fantastic idea’s. We gave our guest a custom made CD with some of our favorite songs as well as music from the wedding. A enexpensive site to use is http://www.ourweddingcd.com. We also just got back from a wedding that made cute jars with lemonade mixture inside. Something to enjoy out on the porch!!
