@mrsfelda0914:  First off, welcome to the hive!  =) Thank you so much for joining our community.  We’re so thrilled to have you a part of it.

Second, what sort of theme do you have in mind for your wedding?  Perhaps we can go off that to figure out some awesome favors!

Hi there.  My favors are far from creative but they’ll do.  I have min ifavor boxes I got from Oriental trading Company that I’ll fill with chocolate covered peanuts, trailmix or a truffle ball (or something similar).  

I will also have votives on the tables as decor that guests can take home at the end of th enight with our names and date and a thank you.  I am also having a candy bar (mainly for the kids in attendance).  Oh and my escort cards will will each guests name stuck in a mini chocolate bar with a toothpick (so they can find their seats and pop the chocolate in their mouth).

@mrsfelda0914:  Hmm. Do you want them to be any particular colour scheme or theme?  Edible or keepsake or practical object?  What price per person do you consider to be inexpensive?

I had mini donuts, and my cousin had our familys fudge. I’ve seen caramel apples (my plan of my fall wedding had gone ahead as planned)

I would go with something edible – most people aren’t going to be too excited at having a trinket with your name and wedding date on it.

Failing that, little toys that people can play with on the night are always great! My brother had little disentanglement puzzles on each table, which were a great talking point, and another friend had little wind-up toys and people just raced them along the tables. It depends on the look your going for, but I would suggest something people can use straight away – whether it’s something to eat or play with. Pretty favours are nice enough, but unless they’re fantastic, no one will notice them too much.

We are doing scratch-off lottery tickets. I found inexensive lottery size envelopes online- about $10 for 120. Then we designed a heart shaped sticker with our wedding colors, name, date and ‘Lucky in Love’ printed on them  to seal the envelope. The stickers were easy to make and cost about $14 total. So the only other cost was $1 ticket for each guest. We went with scratch-offs because they are fun and inexpensive! I also agree with PP’s who said anything edible is also great!

Welcome to the hive!  We’re not doing favors at all.  We decided from the very start that it’s not worth spending the money on something most people will leave behind or throw away anyway.  I just bring this up in case the only reason you want favors is because you feel obligated to have them!

With your theme being enchanted garden I think about tea or flowers… What about personalized tea bags ? Here is a link to see what they look like http://www.beau-coup.com/personalized_tea_favors.htm

Flower seeds would also be a nice idea, or a lavender bag to keep the closet with a nice smell

for inexpensive favors (stress inexpensive), do a search for “wedding favors” at


I’ve bought a lot of favors from them and they are of very good quality.

They also sell acrylic beads for your table decor at a reasonable price as well.
