… what to do for favours!
We’ve been through idea after idea and ended up throwing them all out of the window.
We’re having a tree/woodland theme, and we want something that resonates with that. I love the idea of giving something people can take home with them, but my Fiance wants something that they will eat (chocolate etc)
Deep down I think he’s probably right – as I’ve been to weddings where after the reception there are a million and one packets of seeds left over!
What do people think?

What about chocolate pine cones?

I like edible favors (I know not everyone does) but it’s the most generally appealing.
Seeds/plants/flowers/etc- I kill them all. I killed a chia pet 🙁
Magnets/coasters/coozies/anything with your name & wedding date- I’m not going to use it. I’ll leave it or toss it eventually. I don’t need your name and wedding date on anything.
Donations- whoop de doo. You gave someone money for some cause, and while that’s valiant and thoughtful, what if the cause you chose endorses animal research, or has business practices I don’t agree with? I might be offended that you picked that particular charity.
Give me chocolate, mints, cookies, cupcakes, or chocolate covered strawberries- HELL YEAH! I’m all for it 🙂

I was thinking more along the lines of a small wooden photo frame etc
NOTHING with our names etc on – I’d not use anything that had anyone elses on, and I don’t expect anyone else to use something with our wedding date on.
We threw out the idea of seeds etc, I never plant packet seeds, so I don’t know why anyone else would.
My mum likes the idea of donations, but I threw that out for the very sam reason. Everyone has their chosen charity, and I’m not going to force my charity choice on them.
I love LOVE the idea of the chocolate pine cones! They look amazeballs! I’m also toying with the idea of lottery tickets/scratch cards – though I would be peeved if one of my guests won a million pounds!
One thing I am MOST sure of is that I will be giving the same to everyone. Last wedding I went to, all the men got chocolate and all the women got packets of seeds. I was pissed off! I would have much rather had chocolate!
