Hey policewifetobe – we have the same favor idea! πŸ™‚ Love it! We’re doing a Make Your Own Caramel Apple bar. Everyone can dip their apple, roll it in goodies and stuff it in their bag with our pre-designed tags to take with them. πŸ™‚ Tasty and keeps everyone entertained. πŸ™‚ We want our wedding to be experiential.

My mom’s mom passed down an unwritten recipe for our family BBQ sauce before she passed away in 2000. So, in honor of her, and to go with our farm wedding, we are doing mini jars of BBQ sauce with a little tag to honor my grandmother.

I’m doing macaroons as favours; something guests can have as an additional dessert.

While we were planning on caramel apples, our plans have changed (for the better!) We are now having an “engagement party” in October. Guests will come to celebrate and quickly find out that they are already attending the actual wedding! Yep – surprise wedding! πŸ™‚ Then we’ll do a reception for a larger group after the beginning of next year. So now I think we will do a caramel apple station for the small “engagement party” and cupcake push pops for the large reception. πŸ™‚ The apples will be more expensive than the cupcakes, but will take less prep-time, so that should work out since the Fi and I are doing everything for our surprise wedding, and for the reception we will have more help available to us to assembly-line the push cakes. πŸ™‚

While we are likely not doing traditional “favors” at the reception we do have a small break between the ceremony and the reception and we plan to have mini hand held apple pies and caramel corn for the guest to enjoy during their “free time”.

We’ll also be ordering extra cupcakes and having mini to-go containers for guests to take a cupcake home with them.  We’ll order some sticked to decorate the containers.

We are having delicious BBQ so we are making homemade bbq sauce… the bottle will double as an escort card & favor to take home.

We’re either doing a candy bar where guests can fill their own treat bags or have pre-filled treat bags at the table. We’re having a Halloween inspired wedding, so we thought candy would be a good fit.

@vanillabean:

I love the idea of doubling up on the escort card/favor! I may borrow that idea πŸ™‚

We will be doing the custom koozie for ours, and also i plan on attempting to order caramel and candied apples. It just depends where my budget stands towards the time to order!

This is making me think now… We were going with Caramel Apples, then chocolate covered pretzels, but we have 300+ people so that would be a lot of work. Any suggestions? And I don’t want any “throw away gift,” I’m leaning on something more on the edible side. (Hot chocolate in a cellophane bag… cider w/a cinnamon stick)… Help!

@Lauren10.8.11: I think all of your ideas sound great! I will say, if you want something that will be used/eaten, it might be better to stick with an edible item that can be consumed without additional preparation (like adding water to the hot chocolate mix and apple cider mix – definitely cute ideas, but they may not be as likely to be used).  I personally love the chocolate covered pretzel idea.  Do they have to be individually dipped, or can they be made in large batches? If you can do large batches, it might not be that much work (though I do agree that caramel apples seem like tons of work!)

@Lauren10.8.11: I’m doing signature drinks in a bottle. You may want to try something easily prepared.
