Are you looking for something like a favor, to take home? Or something for them to eat/use right then?

A little jar of honey or jam would be really neat, for a favor. Or you could put paper and pens down so guests can write down good wishes and thoughts to deposit into a “wish” jar somewhere else close by.

Another ideas is a fun game or puzzle that incorporates facts about you and the groom, or that thanks them for coming. Those could be really nice on a chair. Some samples:

 

And speaking of jars of honey… here’s a picture of the honey jars I used as favors:

I love the game idea! We’re going to do something like it…

That’s great! We gave our guests a suite of puzzles/games in their welcome baskets. They had to ask each other different questions about us growing up, us as a couple, etc., to solve them, and they LOVED it. I am an avid puzzler and puzzle designer, so I love to hear when others do things like this. What types of games will you be incorporating?

Here’s how the honey jars worked…there were a lot of moving parts. I ordered the honey jars online (there is an Etsy seller right now selling these at a good price), then the graphic designer for my invitations/announcements/welcome tags designed a label for me (in addition to the adorable chocolate bar label below). Then I stuck those on, covered the tops of the jars with some fabric and that blue ribbon, and bought some honey dippers at an outlet store for I want to say $0.50 each to make place cards! I am a BIG DIYer. The “writing” on the name tags is actually done with rub-ons (can be simplified by printing them on nice paper and cutting out the little flags). Labor-intensive, but I love stuff like that.

The Etsy seller who I saw recently with a good price is emwedding. I did not use her, but my person no longer sells these (and I paid a lot more per jar). There are other options out there if you are open to different size/shape jars, so just googling honey jar favors should get you some. In fact, come to think of it, there are a lot of mass-favor producers who will provide the jars AND the labels like these: http://www.beau-coup.com/personalized_honey_jars.htm
