@SuperDuperBrit We are heavy readers as well so we will be doing book marks for our STDs. Great favor idea!
For our honeymoon we are going backpacking in Chile. All our friends think we are crazy and should be sitting on a beach somewhere instead. For our favors we’re doing a trail mix bar to tie in our honeymoon with our guests. I’m also pretty dead set on making the bag labels out of seed paper so the guests can go home and plant some flowers.
Link to the seed paper:

Cookbook sounds great!
I made these little bags that I’m filling with macadamia nuts.

I am making Limoncello as one favor and bottlecap pins as the other favor.

My husband LOVES to cook too. We wanted something cooking-related. So, we bought bulk wire bail jars:
and two 25-lb bags of pink Himalayan sea salt:
Then I printed round labels that listed our names, our wedding date, the fact that the contents were pink Himalayan sea salt. We filled the jars and stuck on the labels and voila, favors.
People seemed to like them. My Maid/Matron of Honor just asked me if she can bring her jars (she took three!) over next time she visits because she wants to refill them. (We have a lot of leftover salt!)

We’re making donations to the Heart and Sroke foundation as well as the Canadian cancer society. A few years ago, FI’s dad had a massive heart attack (thankfully he’s okay today) and my mom has been deaing with cancer now for the last 10 years.. so both of these donations will be very meaningful to us, and to our families.

We’re doing personalized matchbooks. We bought 400 (for an estimated 200 guests that will show), and we’re going to leave them on the bar, outside on the tables for smokers, and on the tables inside. We’ve told the venue that they should absolutely NOT throw away the extras, bag them up and we’ll pick them up the next day. Our thoughts are people always need matches, so people might actually take them, plus they were cheap ($137, which includes personalization and shipping). And whatever doesn’t get used we’ll keep at our house for parties and stuff, they’ll eventually go.

I’m making cookies that are going to be wrapped in cellophane and I’m doing personalized favour tags too 😀

Since we splurged on a photobooth (i so badly had to have) our favors will be the photo strips:)
We are designing our own slide design to commemorate our wedding date so, I think it is a very fun favor. Still deciding on whether we’ll have some sort of holder for the guests to put their photos in and/or a photo album for them to add a slide for us, but I thought I would share:)

@bugbug Thanks! I love that your save the dates were bookmarks. We decided we’d do magnets for save the dates, but at one time I was looking into doing bookmark save the dates. Love it! My fiance really wanted to pick something guests could use again and again. Originally since we’re having a brunch wedding I wanted to mini jam or honey favors. But when we saw bookmarks we were sold, lol. Now we just need to pick which style =)

We’re doing Out of Town bags, but no separate favours. Everyone’s from Out of Town anyways! : D

A cookbook sounds like a great idea! We are making jam for each guest. I was considering honey (I love the idea and SO is a beekeeper, but last year did not yield much honey, so jam it is). We will go fruit picking as soon as it is in season! It is pretty inexpensive to make which is a plus.
