Maybe you could do one favor per family at dinner too. You could get something like personalized (your name and date) bottles of wine or maybe a photo frame and be sure to take photos with each family and send them with the thank you.

Cookies, brownies, something nice and edible that they can have before they drive back that’ll keep. I’m totally of the belief that something like that is always the best favour but I think in this case it’d be easy for you. What about a famous family cookie recipe attached to a small bag of cookies?

what about something like mini homemade bread loaves? I can send you a great recipe if you want one. 🙂

What about a plant?

I was just at a wedding where they gave away saplings. I was also at a wedding once where they gave away tulip bulbs.

Is there somthing native to Hawaii that would work? Macadamia nuts?

One of my friends, at her wedding, she gave out wine as favours with one bottle per couple. Instead of having them at the dinner tables, she had them on a table by the door for people to grab as they left. You don’t have to have your favours waiting at the tables as long as people know where they are.

Most of our guest will be family or very close friends.

We are doing candy apples.  We also thought about flower seeds.

why not do a keychain  it is small to put on everyones plate, and every one has keys to use them.  just need to pick one that suites your wedding.

I love the recipe book idea. You can order them via shutterfly and put family photos all over them. Who says they have to be bound like traditional recipe books? Put in some photos of all your family, your engagement pictures, that kind of stuff. I think it’d be lovely.

If you bagged or boxed up the wine properly with a cute note (“for you to enjoy while we’re on our honeymoon!”) people would get the cue it’s a TAKE HOME gift though.

@goofyquest: that’s a great idea. Maybe with a Hawaiian theme …

We did lip balm from local bees. Everyone can use lip balm. It had our names and date on the label.
