No wedding favors. It is expensive, and lets be honest… no one really cares about them anyway.

$300 for a trail mix bar? No thanks.

Like PP we did playing cards because we love playing games and met over pool.  We did generic ones from Oriential Trading and got a dozen (on clearance) for like $3.  We had a ton of guests who enjoyed them. The boxes were not the best as they were cheaper but the cards have been great! We use them often and all the decks we have used are still in great shape.

We are doing small bags of popcorn (Topsy’s Kansas City mix – which is caramel, cheese, and cinnamon!). 

We picked this because:

1. I love popcorn

2. It wasn’t too costly and our guests will be excited (won’t waste it!)

3. I’m from OK and that is where we live now, but my Fiance is from KC (and has season tickets to the Chiefs games, which I go to because I can eat the popcorn while at the football games!)

Each bag will have a label says “Thank you for Popping By to Celebrate with us! Love Chris & Lindsay”

  • Wedding: November 2015

We’re doing a dessert bar and having little take-away boxes available for people to bring treats home with them. We’re probably going to end out still having a ton of leftovers…

My grandmother is making a ton of sweets since we aren’t having a huge cake, and we have lots of glass jars around already so I’m just filling some with candy and got some treat bags at the dollar store that I stamped- so people can take some sweets home!

A friend of ours also gifted us with a batch of homemade red and homemade white wine and since we aren’t allowed to serve it at the venue, people will be able to take a bottle as well if they like.

  • Wedding: April 2015 - Family Farm

futuremrspesci:  Our favors were glasses we got on clearance at a factory outlet. Then we had them etched with Jane Austen’s silouette and the Batman logo to represent my and DH’s favorite things. No Names. No Dates. I hate stuff with other peoples names and dates all over it and honestly never use it again and it ends up at goodwill. Ny engraver was super excited that we didn’t do names and dates. Plus I got a lot of comments from friends about how they would be able to use the glass ware in their daily collection. Bonus: When we have been over I have seen our glassware on drying racks so I know it’s been used.

They doubled as the glassware for the night and we had packaging to take them home. waiters rinsed them for guests. We had very few left and they maybe cost $270 total for about 80 glasses.

futuremrspesci:  I hate favors, as a guest. If they’re edible they’re usually gross, and if they’re not then they’re usually crap that clutters my space and I can never convince my Darling Husband to throw out.  God forbid they’re monogramed. 

We had a candy bar, but I would not have had favors if we didn’t have that. See, I don’t get why adults need a consolation prize for not being the center of attention.

We are doing a few things, Koozies (everyone in our area does koozies) and a photo booth (I consider this a favor as it is a reminderof the wedding).  I am also making escort cards that will have truffles.

  • Wedding: Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception/The Gallery

lindsayE:  As a KC bride, I LOVE this. Perfect!

That said, we’re considering little bottle of BBQ sauce… but haven’t decided if we even want to bother.

  • Wedding: October 2014

Darling Husband is from Maine and we wanted to include something to represent his home state, so we decided to do whoopie pie favors since we’re a fan of food favors.  The place we ordered from individually wrapped them and included our own personalized tag, so no work had to be done on our part except for putting them out.

They were a huge hit with our guests!

futuremrspesci:  I’m a foodie and my girlfriend loves food too. I’m thinking of doing a mini baguette with a mini bottle of balsamic vinegar and a mini bottle of rosemary infuse olive oil. The catering company I want to go with will do this for us. OR I will make the breads and have them handle the olive oil and vinegar bottling. We both LOVE olive oil and vinegar to dip bread in, seems fitting. AND we both like edible favours as no one knows what to do with them otherwise.

A friend of mine did pet rocks. Hand decorated 90 pet rocks for each guest. I still have mine. He lives in my window sil. 🙂
