    Air plant in gold sea urchin shell.

    Either a boston cream or s'mores donut from a local donut shop.

    Well actually, I really like air plants, but I think doughnuts would be a bigger hit overall

    Edible over knick-knacks anyday!! I honestly probably wouldn’t even pick up a urchin if I saw them at a wedding.

    Probably the donut. I would just leave the plant or give it to someone else who wanted it.

    Those plants are adorable but (without being sexist) would most of the male guest leave them on the table? Donuts sound nice……. drool…..

    Yeah I wouldn’t care for the plant but I never say no to donuts!

    If I wanted to take care of a plant I would buy one.

    I love plants, but the doughnuts are more practical. Especially for couples who cohabitate. It would be silly for my husband and I to each take a plant, since they’re going to the same house, but we could each enjoy a favor if they were doughnuts. 🙂

    I like the plant, I’m not a fan of edible favors though I know I’m in the minority on that one.

    Normally, I would definitely be pro donut. However, there’s going to be cake and food at the wedding. I would feel too full to enjoy that favor that day, and donuts aren’t as good the next day.

    I like plants. I have plants. I wouldn’t want to have to worry about how to get the plant home, especially if I was on an airplane. Food favors are always a hit. I can’t eat donuts but my family would love to eat mine for me, even the next day.

    If you must have wedding favours, I would prefer an edible favour over a knick knack any day. 

    There’s an 80% chance I’d eat the donut.

    There’s a zero % chance I’d keep anything you provide as a favour, be it a plant, a knick knack, whatever.

    (One wedding I attended had a really cool favour. At each plate was a tiny note that read, “In lieu of favours we have made a donation to the Canadian Caner Society” (the brides aunt had died of cancer). I thought it was a kind gesture.

    People always want food.  I’d probably leave the plant behind.
