We did whoopie pie favors and out of 100 guests, we had a dozen left over.

I think food favors have a better “take” rate than anything else.

We did homemade jams, there were very few left over.

rosecut:  We hardly had any left over! We had around 200 people, but we over ordered on favors. We did 125 mini containers of Johnson’s Popcorn & 125 tins w/ fudge and taffy. ALL the popcorn was taken, and all but maybe 15 tins of the fudge/taffy. Our favors were a huge hit, especially the popcorn. Our guests were texting us pictures of them eating late night drunken popcorn. 🙂

If our guests didn’t take them home they ate them there. We got these cute bride & groom favor boxes at the dollar store 10 pk for $1 and filled them with candy and had them at each place setting. Our theme was “Love is Sweet” so each table was named after a candy and that determined what kind was in each box.

We had mini whisks and heart shaped measuring spoons, and I have to say I was surprised to say 95% of them were taken.

catpeaches:  Perfpersnickety:  Thank you both! It was super cheap but not tacky and there weren’t any left-overs. The (sour patch) kids probably were watching as guests left to snatch up any that may have been left behind. I got all of the candy at eiter Costco or Walmart. My wedding was 2 months before Halloween so the stores were already filled with big bags. They are pretty easy to assemble and I’m not even crafty but I had the help of my abuela and her two sisters. It was a lot of fun and just a nice little touch.

I also put a lot of thought into which people should be sat at which tables for example: warheads were the ROTC guys, Nerds were my MIL’s work friends (they’re all acountants), kisses and hugs were the two most important head table and parents/grandparents table respectively, lifesavors were our vendors (photographers/videographers/dj), junior mints was young teens table, hot tamales were the significant others of the wedding party, 3 musketeers were my 3 cousins and my husband’s 3 cousins, jolly ranchers were my husband’s high school friends from Hickory, reese’s were long-term married couples because peanut butter and chocolate go so well together, the sour patch kids is pretty obvious, and so on and so forth.

They all took them home! Majority of our guests thought they were too good to eat. We gave them personalised chocolates ( as in personalised with THEIR name and a quote relevant to them). They loved them. Here is one of them:

rosecut:  We had cake pops dressed in a tux and a “dress” (aka white with sparkles) and didn’t have many leftover, had 240 guests at our wedding. I think edible is nice too because whoever leaves it behind, more for you 🙂
