Definately the best was the gourmet caramel apple for a fall wedding!  Yummmyyy.  I’m all for the edible gourmet yummies.

i did small jars filled with rosemary. there is a lot of historical significance to giving out rosemary at a wedding…. and it helped that it matched one of my colors 😉

ARob311 — where did you find koozies for 73 cents?! I’ve been looking everywhere…

The best wedding favor I ever received was a small bottle of wine, but that was pretty expensive. Otherwise, I always appreciate edible favors.

i heart edible favors!

we’re doin a baseball themed reception, so everyone’s getting peanuts and cracker jacks! i found a place online that still sells cracker jacks in the box – not the snack packs!

and we hired a hot dog vendor – if you live in LA and have gone to a Lakers game you know what I’m talkin about – the greasy footlong hotdog with bacon wrapped around it with onions and cheese and everything!

MoreShoesPlease– ohmigossshhh, you’re getting one of those hotdog vendors?  That’s so awesome!  I’ve been saved many-a-time by those vendors after sweating in the pit at a concert, seeing a game… that’s awesome!  Even better than Pink’s!

I, like most of you, love edible favors. At past weddings I’ve received candles, shot glasses, chocolate, potpourri <–is that how you spell it?? and cds. The last wedding I attended gave out cds but with the cd the couple explained in 2 to 3 sentences top per song what the songs meant to the both of them. I’m getting married this fall at a winery. I was told
that we should give out mini wine bottles from that particular winery. Sounds like a nice idea but I’m afraid it might be a little expensive. Guess we’ll find out this sunday

I’m planning on doing a photobooth so people will have a nice picture from our wedding. I’m designing the picture frame (somewhere along the lines of our invitation design) that will hold the picture. Probably have some sort of polariod or printer so people can get their pictures right away. It’s a little complicated though and I haven’t completely figured it out. But it is something different!

Edible ones are the best, everything else ends up in the garbage or in a garage sale

Mini wine bottles are nice, though at the wedding where I got those, there were blush, reds, and whites, and everyone was trying to trade to get the type of wine they like best.

My sister did personalized Koozies. I love that idea–it’s a practical keepsake. Anyone can use a Koozie–men, women, kids. I plan to do personalized Koozies, too–probably filled with chocolate.

Another cute one was a heart-shaped cookie cutter with a "recipe for a good marriage" attached. Another friend did personalized votives from Yankee. Again, both are practical.

Because I’m rather eco-minded and outdoorsy, I find myself drawn to things like little plants, plantable flower-seed paper, or the Matchstick Gardens–but then I have to remind myself that not everyone is excited about plants as I am 🙂  And therefore, most of them will probably end up in the trash–which is the last thing I would want (to create more trash).

We make home meade pickles that all of our friends and family rave about.  We are thinking of offering them in 3 varieties, bread & butter, hot, & dill in small jars to take home.  Theya re super easy and quick to make and we grow most of our own ingrediants so the cost will be minimal.  We are also thinking of doing potted herbs as well.  small little pots. If people don’t take them home we will just plant them in our own garden and they will make a great centerpiece with a large canning jar of bright flowers every few feet (I want long tables instead of round.  I think it is much more cosy and easier to talk to more people at the table.)

I think anything edible/drinkable – we got chocolates and tea in the past. Last wedding we went to didn’t have anything, and I actually didn’t realize until now when I was trying to remember, haha. One wedding we went to in the past had these horrible plaster lighthouses as  favors ( because he proposed in the lighthouse). While a nice idea that was their memory not ours, so we didn’t even take it home ( don’t need additional junk). We also go Christmas ornament on one of the weddings, that was ok idea.

I think luggage tags, brag books/photo albums, luggage tags are also nice.

I once saw cookies and milk to be taken at the end of the wedding instead of favors. I thought that was great. Who doesn’t like cookies and milk ?
