Hi!

We did two things:

1. A photo booth which printed strips on the spot for guests to take home (we got a great rate as far as photo booths go at $590).

2. A boxed cake pop at each place setting (made by a friend).

The cool thing about the photo booth was that a second copy was printed for guests to glue into our guestbook when they signed – Everyone (including us) loved it!

Your mom’s ideas could be great – I’ve heard edible favours are popular with guests πŸ™‚

Our favors was a holiday card (It was near Christmas) with home made (that we bought not made) suckers, shaped like snowflakes that was blue with tiny little white snow flakes painted all over them. It was cheap but didn’t look it, to me. πŸ™‚

They looked like this (only these are cookies) & ours was suckers:

You can really dress up candy or cookies as favors.  I think most people would rather have something extra to eat besides a little trinket that will collect dust.  I did the same thing as another bee here, (sorry, I can’t remember who!) but I put hershey’s hugs and kisses in a little box with labels that say “hugs and kisses from the new Mr. and Mrs.” with a bow around the top.  They look really cute! 

Also, I was thinking about doing these

It’s a card that you plant and it has seeds in it so flowers grow, I think it’s very creative and unique!

I’m not even sure if we’ll be doing favors. The reception itself is a wedding favor.

My sister made lovely handmade fans we will hand out at the beginning of the ceremony.  We also have a cookie table that guests will be welcome to.  Also, guests will be welcome to take our hanbmade aspen wood candle holders.  We also have a photo booth set up.  They can put their picture in our guest book and sign it and take some others with them.

My FI’s brother and SIL own and operate an organic soap company called moksa organics. And when I say organic, I mean really organic and no chemicals at all. Anyways, we each chose a scent from their soap line and those will be given out as favors which are really nice considering they retail for $6.50 each. It goes with our eco-friendly country wedding because the packaging is also made from 100% recycled material and the ink is soy. I’m a wildlife biologist and moksa actually contributes part of all their soap proceeds to various animal organizations. Not only is it a great gift, it helps support great causes. If you all haven’t heard of this brand, I encourage you to check them out. You won’t regret it. moksaorganics.com  I hope my guests enjoy the soap as much as we do!

@lioness_89:  It’s true. I was talking to my parents about wedding favors and they said that the reception is the wedding favor. It’s a “Thanks for celebrating with us! The food, booze and music is on us! Enjoy!” :-p

I am giving out 3 favors.

My Photobooth, they get a copy of their pictures and so do I, cost is $400 (I got a special winter discount of almost $800).

I am doing a candy bar- should cost no more than $300.

And champagne splits, no more than $400. 

Because I saved money in other areas of my budget, I am splurging a bit on the favors. I couldn’t make up my mind which one I really wanted so we are doing them all.
