Best: If I was allowed to pick my own I would since it was the best favor I’ve ever seen at a wedding (we gave orchard fresh 6” apple pies to every guest) but as far as what I’ve actually received, I guess I’ll go with the carmel apple even though I didn’t get to actually eat mine. I heard they were good, though.

Worst: A donation from two separate weddings but ONLY because I know for a fact that the donations were never actually made (I have no issue with donations as favors as long as the couple actually donated). The couples went out of their way to tell all of their guests that they were “making a donation in our name in leiu of a favor” but never gave a penny to the cause. Now, the only reason I know this is because I’m very close to both couples and they actually admitted it. Seriously, if you can’t afford favors then don’t have them but DON’ T lie and say that you donated to something that you didn’t. It’s tacky.

I really liked a pair of gold chopsticks that were the favor at a wedding I went to recently, everybody took them home, in fact someone snagged DH’s favor so we only ended up with one pair 🙁

worst, ugly candle or personalized golf ball.

best: candy.

Honestly i’m not a big fan of favours. I cant think of one where i thought “oh this is the best idea”

Best: a scratch off lottery ticket! I won $10. I was the only one who won at our table, Frango chocolate mints. I still remember that favor 7 years later.

Worst: I can’t remember any offhand, maybe later.

I’ve honestly never been to a wedding with favors other than little boxes with some jelly beans or chocolate in them (which I am not a fan of).  We had a photobooth instead of favors at my wedding and I think I’d prefer that over almost anything else at a wedding I was attending – you get to have a little fun and a picture of you and your friend/date/maybe even the bride and groom to remember it by.

Best: anything edible.

Worst: CD of wedding songs.  A little olive oil container that broke the second I put olive oil in it.  Coasters.

@totheislnds:  YUM.

Best…nothing stands out. I almost never remember favors.

Worst: I know we’ve gotten some encraved crystal something-or-others at various weddings, and they go straight in the trash.

@MrsSawyer:  that is hilarious!

I haven’t been to many weddings so it’s hard to say. 2 out of the 3 I’ve been to let a person at each table take home the centerpiece which was a flower or herb plant. The other wedding had a little bottle of wine for everyone which was nice. I really liked my wedding favors too…my BM made these amazing homemade chocolates, but I am a chocolate freak.
