The best wedding favor I’ve ever received was a carmel apple but thats only because the other weddings we’ve attended either didn’t give favors or did donations. 

I always prefer edible favors over some useless chotskie that I’m either going to leave or throw in a junk drawer when I get home. 

We’re having a fall themed wedding and giving each of our guests orchard mini apple pies. Ours won’t have the monogram but you get the idea…

cute idea for the pies.

at my wedding we are doing custom decks of cards. They are black with bronzey gold writting which my colours are brown and bronzey gold. My Fiance family all love playing cards so thats where we got the idea. I got 1 deck per couple so im thinking of doing some kind of chocolate on the other plates, so that each seating has a favour. 

my favourite favour i have received was heart shaped measuring spoons.  and they said things like  a heap of love on them. sooo cute.

The weddings I have been to lately have either had no favors or monogrammed ones that I left behind.  We are doing cake balls at the request of our guests after taking them to alot of funtions lately.

We are doing cookies.  I’m from a very small town that has this cute little cookie shop.  I used to love to go get cookies there when I was younger.  So we are going to give out a one giant cookie per guest, and on the label will either be a picture of us or some logo.

I was only allowed to take one coaster at a wedding that I attended, but since others left theirs, I ended up with 5!  they are the kind you can personalize and put pictures in.  I love them and am using one now 🙂  I also like photobooth photos that guests can take.  I think it’s a lovely keepsake, but yes, overdone!

The best favour I received was some delicious cookies.  I also really liked when I went to a wedding and they did a donation instead.  A lot of people on here have said they dislike it, but personally I’d rather the money went to a charity instead of something I won’t use!

We received yummy cookies from a wedding this summer, and now we’re doing the same thing.  I’ve also gotten jars of homemade jam which was to DIE for…. yum!!

we went to place that makes wine and order white and red, and we will put our own lables on it 1 per couple with a small bag of chocolate seashells tied on it. for the kids we are giving chocolate “sea creature” lolliepops. its a beach themed wedding btw.

we didnt want to hand out trinkets that others my find unuseful.

We had a trail mix buffet at our wedding, kind of a play on the popular candy buffet but with nuts, dried fruits, sixlets, cheerios, etc.  A lot of our guests commented that it was fun and unique.

@soonerpsych: Ok, that is an awesome idea!

Ooooh, I bet you could also do a granola buffet, and guests could make up a little baggie of a serving or two of cereal. Oats, nuts, dried fruit, bran flakes, toasted oats…. Then again, I’m a huge fan of cereal, especially homemade granola, so maybe this just sounds like a good idea to me. 🙂
