I don’t really consider the bells favors, but I love the idea of them using them to ring at the wedding. That is beautiful! After the wedding, the bell will be useless and honestly, more than likely end up in the garbage. That is not meant in a mean way at all!! As for the candies, I think they are a lovely idea to include your area, your love for maple syrup, and the season. I’m against non-edible favors as they are typically garbage-worthy. We are having smores on a stick since our wedding is in the fall.

I am having 2 favors too…wedding bubbles with a little poem on them and miniature boxes filled with candies (haven’t decided yet which candy)…I knew I wanted favors I just didn’t think it would be two…lol

Yours sound great by the way.

I’m also having 2 favors- jordan almonds (traditional for my culture) in raw silk pouches and also chocolate truffles in a nice gold box and a card with an excerpt from a poem tied with ribbon onto the box. πŸ™‚

we are doing scratch tickets- Fiance and I love scratch tickets, and you can always find some in our cars/we always give them as little gifts and pick me ups… They are going to be in an envelope at each place setting with a sticker on them that says “Feeling Lucky tonight?”…

We wanted to do candy apples but they were way too expensive, and we have a lot of food at our reception πŸ™‚

Since our wedding is in the first month of the year, we’re considering doing 2012 calendars as favours.  (I’m canadian – there’s lots of extra ‘u’s in our words)

I was thinking more in the “useful” favour department.  Nobody needs to see our faces for the following 12 months, but we might put an engagement picture on the cover and just a simple, clean print for each of the months in the calendar.  No logos or anything wedding cutesy on the month pages either.

Another idea I had was to include pictures of our city for each of the months, but this may be cost prohibitive. 

I found the idea on etsy and am strongly considering it.

That being said, it will totally depend how they look once I construct one myself since it will be all DIY. 

I’m thinking looseleaf tea as a backup favour idea.  

Thoughts, comments?

I love it! We are doing pure maple syrup favours too! Love the candy idea πŸ™‚ And the bells are awesome! What a great idea… I kind of want to steal it as we’re having horses and a wagon!
