Food is always best. To make it stand out, get something local or meaningful to you as a couple. Honey, truffles from the local chocolatier, your favorite scones, things like that. We did a welcome bag instead, due to distances traveled. Lots of compliments on the fresh croissant and homemade trail mix especially.

mrsferrick :  maybe you are looking for more meaningful, cute little items

but just throwing it out there, the BEST favors I have ever recieved (and many people there also agreed) was food on the way out!

They had little boxes to go with sliders and sweet potato fries and people were going nuts over them lol.

I agree with PPs, Food is a good favor. Most people after dancing and it being late, may really appreciate a snack 🙂 All the favors with your name and date on may not be as appreciated bc most of the time in my situation, i dont know where to put them? :/

  • Wedding: June 2019 - City, State

My friend told me about this wedding she went to. more specifically she told me about the party favors. They gave her a salt and pepper shakers shaped as a pear. It was two in one so the top half was salt or pepper and the bottom was the other. I thought that was so cool because it is useful and really different. So of course the tag line was  “we make the perfect pear”. 

Here is the link of one I see: https://www.partycity.com/the-perfect-pear-salt-and-pepper-shaker-337290.html?gclid=CjwKCAjwiN_mBRBBEiwA9N-e_tv73wCn7OJs2K_0J-6h1Rs-ZcLFUodXGT1MCSisAveI_Nl1qiYRmxoCbTIQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&extcmp=pla%7CGoogle

I hired a vendor to come in and do digital caricatures of our guests to take home plus I will be throwing some candies of our wedding colors in cute little bags near the door on their way out.

We did cookies with cute thank you bags from oriental trading (cookies from bjs…we needed like 500 so it was more economical). People loved it. We had snicker doodles, chocolate chip, m &m, and double chocolate. There were enough for everyone to take 2. But i can tell you done people didn’t get any (not that they missed then)

I’ve seen home decor given out as wedding favors and I really like the idea! Like a small set of coasters, and the salt shaker idea is also great!

mrsferrick :  I’m going to echo the others. Food. I really never understood wedding favors. I never keep the stuff and just threw it away. But food, food is a winner in my book!
