imo edible favours are the best… not sure on the donation thing, i suppose your best bet would be to contact your chosen charity regarding this.

@wifegoodman: A friend of mine did this.  She made a donation to a charity, then our favors were little boxes of kisses with a slip of paper that told us of the donation.  Very sweet!

Food favors are awesome. Candy, cookies, fudge, rice krispy treats, dipped apples (e.g. candy apples, caramel apples), spice mixes, bbq sauce, bottled honey or maple syrup, a favorite family treat… you have tons of options. Choose something that is reflective of your current area, hometown, cultural background, favorite childhood treat, etc. As long as it has meaning to you and is tasty, it will be a success.

@wifegoodman:

Anything edible. I personally specifically like something that means something to the couple or regional to their locale.

ie, my husband and I make homebrews together so for our wedding we made a homebrew just for the wedding. Something light and summery. Bottled with personalized labels etc. For the kids we did a regional beverage called loganberry.

Definitely go with an edible favor. We are doing 4oz quilted mason jars with m&m’s with our colors. We had thought of canning applesauce since we can every summer, but our apple trees didn’t do so good this year & don’t want to buy that many apples. with an edible you can still personalize the label, but have peace of mind that your money was well spent. Have you thought of doing a candy/ dessert bar and put out personalized containers, then your guests can pick what they want.

Have you thought about making cake pops?! You can also order them on line if you google cake pops. Super cute idea

@wifegoodman: When my cousin got married he and his wife did the donation thing. Every place setting had a bookmark at it that said something along the lines of “In lieu of a favor, a donation has been made in your name to the American Cancer Society, in memory of the groom’s mother.” My aunt had passed away about 10 years before then, and I thought it was a really sweet thing to do.

When my fiance and I get married in October of ’12 we’re doing scented soaps. My fiance’s parents used to make soaps for a charity in their town. So, we’re going to do soaps with scents and colors to match the fall wedding. And we’re going to get little bride and groom rubber duckies to put in the soaps! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the edible favors too. My fiance’s sister and her husband did bride and groom chocolate covered strawberries for their wedding a few years ago. And another cousin of mine did m&ms in their wedding colors with their date and their names on them. I looked into the m&ms thing, but it got kind of pricey.

Good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

@stokieGal: I agree re edible favors. Or some other consumable, like a plant or seeds or a candle.

We hated the idea of having our names/date plastered on a favor. However, we came up with a creative alternative! We gave our guests koozies with a ‘made up’ bar/restaraunt that incorporated our last name (or at least the nickname version of it). On the other side, we used our REAL venue’s logo (which is a popular summer hangout), so it doubled as a little souvie! Our guests always send us pictures of them putting the favors to good use ; )

here’s the design:

and the finished product:
