We’re 98% sure we are doing a Hawaiian destination wedding. I wasn’t really sold on a favor, but I wonder if I should? We will be having about 50 people.
I will be buying colorful hand fans to lay on the chairs for the ceremony (outside). We’re planning on an outside dinner also. The ceremony will be at sunset, so I’m not sure if I can really give a hand fan as a legitimate favor since, well, it will only be used for an hour or so.
I know everyone loves food, but the only thing transferrable would be candies. Any thoughts?

We are doing “welcome bags” and giving them out at the welcome dinner, but other than that, we arent doing favors. I guess we are providing fans and parisols for the ceremony, but I dont think people will end up actually taking those.
I dont think people wil want to haul more stuff back home, we are keeping it pretty simple 😀

@HoneyBear: What type of things are you including in your welcome bags?

@artichokesalad: Since a bunch of our guests are traveling from England/Scotland/Israel and my Fiance is British and we traveled our whole relationship we are doing luggage tags as our favors which are holding the escort cards. I think that would be a fun thing for your guests especially since they will be traveling so its something they can use on their way home!

If I did a favour, I’d probably still do something edible. I always like to have a little sweet to take home and nibble on after the wedding (or before dinner if I’m feeling peckish). Maybe some of those macadamia nut chocolates Hawaii’s so famous for?

Maybe something edible specific to Hawaii like a slice or mini Banana Bread. They can eat it while they are in Hawaii.

I’m doing a DIY candy bar in our wedding colors. I figured that way people will be able to pick only the candies they like. It also can act as decoration if done the right way! Here’s an example of what I’m going for but in different colors:

I do like the candy bar idea — perfect treat for the plane ride home!
