We’re debating between rock candy or just making a donation. The rock candy would just be in our colors.  If we donate it would be either to an education fund (I’m a teacher) or to a cancer fund as we’ve lost relatives recently. 

Our midnight snack; however, is popcorn in old school boxes because we met at the movie theatre (he had to catch me as I fell down the stairs).

Aww, Ireland, that is cute about the popcorn and your movie theatre meeting! Love it!

We are still going back and forth on our favors but we want to get coasters made that say Cheers in English, Irish and Slovak (Our backgrounds). We’ll only get heavy weight ones, not flimsy ones, and if people leave them behind I’m sure all our families would love to have them. 

We also want to do cake boxes with a cake buffet so guests can bring their dessert home.

I’m thinking about asking my mom to make mini berry pies as favors.


We are having the wedding a their house, where I grew up, and there are blueberry bushes, mulberry trees, raspberries, black berries etc. I practically grew up on them, and her pies are great!


These favors will be a great DIY project for my mom, have sentimentality to me, and significance to our venue, and who doesn’t love pie??

We did those mints that melt in your mouth in different flavors.  Both of us are crazy about them.  And we got to eat the left over ones – bonus!

No significance, except for the fact that I went to the classiest wedding EVER two years before we got married and the bride had handmade truffles.  I decided then and there that I had to have not only edible favors, but truffles as well!

I’m having a 1950’s hollywood romance inspired wedding.  We’ll be playing lots of Rat Pack, Etta James, Nat King Cole, etc. during dinner, for our first dance, the mother/son and father/daughter etc.

So in keeping with the theme I thought it would be really cute to give mini bottles of wine as favors and I’m going to make tags for them that read "When the world seems to shine like you’ve had to much wine – that’s amore." (Dean Martin, "That’s Amore")

For the other favor I’d like to set up a candy bar with various jars of candy.  Candy bars are just too great not to have. 🙂 So the guests can fill up their baggies and enjoy!

Not sure what you’re theme is but the other cutest-favor-i’ve-ever-seen were these "Happily Ever After" carraige candles. Google it. They are fantastic. 🙂 They just don’t work with my theme so I’m not using them.

My family is from India, and Fiance is from Seattle.  So our favors are packets of coffee (Starbuck’s) and Darjeeling tea next to each other in a box.

I am giving out packets of wildfower seeds that say Wildflowers from Our Wedding with a nice note on the back thanking guests for sharing our day, etc. The significance is that my wedding is being held in a beautiful garden and that I teach botany in the summer (along with other subjects).

@alieliza – yum homemade berry pies! you have some lucky guests!


We had Jones Soda bottles with custom label, which was photos from our e-pic session. We are big fans of Jones Soda and it seemed like a cute idea for something edible. We also did a photobooth which printed 2 copies, one for our photo guestbook and one for the guests to keep.

our favors are notes to individual guests, rolled up like a scroll and topped with a ribbon in one of our wedding colors, fastened with a wax seal of our monogram. it’s a small wedding so we wanted something meaningful.

the notes will be like an advanced thank you, reflecting on the guest (our closest friends & family) have been part of our life/lives up till this point 🙂

we believe (hopefully!) this will be a gift everyone takes home with them.

Our favors will be photographs of our guests taken at our DIY "photobooth," and used to make magnets, bookmarks, pocket planners, or just framed photos.

I’m so excited for our favors. We’re doing a glass ball Christmas ornament filled wih sand from the beach on which our reception is being held. This is also the beach on which we spent the majority of our time the first summer we started dating so it is a significant place for both of us. In addition to the sand, we collected some shells from the beach near his parents house when we visited and will add these for color and the blending of our two places.

 The ornament idea is sooo cute. Are you hand making these? I’d love to learn more, if you don’t mind. I am getting married in April on the beach and i love the juxataposition of an ornament for the holidays!
