I love that you said tchotke.  MY future brother in law has a wine vinyard so we are giving all of our guests a bottle of wine OR I wanted to make a donation to the ASPCA for everyone. I think these are both nice ideas-I’ve also seen personalized bloody mary mix-i thought that would be cute-maybe with some advil for the next day hangovers. haha.

@flamingred — I just went to a wedding where the couple bottled mini bottled of red wine and those were the favors + seating cards. The wine was great! For under 21 / non drinkers they had a bottle of rootbeer from a local company. I LOVE this idea.

@fancygirl — I think edible favors are a good way to go. What kind of chocolate is your venue giving away? Is there some sort of drink you could give that would be complementary? I agree about tchotkes too.

I think the tea tin is a very cute idea.  I also like macarons, but you’re right, they can get expensive.  I’m getting married in NYC as well and was thinking maybe mini black-and-white cookies would be cute!

It may not go with your overall theme, but I love the link FutureMrsTal suggested- cupcakes in a glass jar are sooo Martha! How cute ๐Ÿ™‚

As for the wooden spoon, you could get them personalized here: http://store.papercupdesign.com/wu3.html

(not sure if I found this on the hive or not… ahh all the wedding blog madness!)

I’m doing bing cherries in a lovely damask favor box. I agree with edible. I can’t tell you how many lame favors I’ve collected over the years. You end up tossing them when you get home.

We’re having an October wedding, so we’re doing caramel apples, yum!  I’m going to wrap themselves with clear wrap, different shades of brown and orange ribbon, and a tasteful tag.  I completely agree with you on the silly tchotkes; they’re a complete waste of money.

Oooooh I love the idea of caramel apples @cynthia225!  We had a party/reception for my future MIL’s retirement and my future SIL made a ton of them– they were oh-so-yummy!  And you know those won’t go to waste!
