Our favors were our candy station and it was a HUGE hit. It was gone 15 minutes after the ceremony and that was the first batch. The second batch was gone just as fast. I received so many compliments from the guests because they have never seen it. I am so glad it worked out.

I’m doing the pictures from the photobooth and the cotton candy if anyone wants it 🙂  As for bridal showers, I’m not doing a favor.  I’ll just get a gift for the hostess.

It was mostly the adults that tackled the table. It cost us ~200 for all the candy. The containers can be inexpensive especially if you find them at flea markets, craft stores (with discounts of course), yard sales or even places like TJMaxx or Marshalls.

Here is a picture of the candy station before it was devoured. [attachment=348515,44037]

For my daughter’s wedding in June we had a candy buffet (but it wasn’t the favors) but also made our centerpieces do double duty. We had white gloss stacked boxes tied with fuschia organza ribbon,and inside we did a variety of items. We had sunglasses (a HUGE hit!), an Etsy seller made for us different soaps (pink hairdryers-daughter is a stylist,and pink & blue lips-a kiss from the bride & groom), LOVE cookie cutters, and Twilight bottles of lotion.

For my second daughter’s wedding next May,we have champagne bottle topped wine stoppers.

Just finished shower favors yesterday. I got large bottles of a variety of bath products (Hand lotion,shower gels,bath crystals,body lotion, bubble bath,body scrub) as well as large mesh covered sponges.  Found a great deal at Annie Sez…6 bottles & sponge for $12.99. (brand is Simple Pleasures) I decorated the bottles with various ribbons,crystals,feathers and have them displayed in a black & white damask trunk and the rest in a black wicker basket. This way people can take whatever they prefer!

We’re having a garden-y themed wedding, with gerbera daisies as the main flower, so we’re planning on having daisy-shaped cookies.  We were initially thinking of seeds to go along with the garden theme, so that’s another good idea.

For the wedding, our favors are going to be miniature glass vases with some sprigs of dried flowers and a tag tied around with our date and “I got you, babe” on it…I think I’m going to put on at each setting on the tables so they can do double duty as decorations! No shower favors, that I know of…Probably will do cookies or something easy and edible 🙂

Our favors are cookies from a small country store where I used to go with my grandmothers, who passed away several years ago.  Not only will the favors have sentimental value, the cookies from this place are awesome, and pretty inexpensive.

We’re doing a candy buffet! Our venue will set it up for us – they have a table and all of the jars/scoopers already and we’ll only have to pay $50 to use it all!!

Our reception is going to cost us about $30K.  Free booze, free food and cake from Stella Pastry…I’m thinking THAT will be our favor. Wink

In lieu of favours we are donating money to a charity (I’m thinking alzheimer’s as it is an extremely important cause to my family, or maybe to a friend’s charity that provides mosquito nets to developing countries).  Honestly, of all the weddings I’ve gone to, I haven’t really cared about the favours minus one where they donated to charity.  No offense to those of you giving favours!  It’s still nice to get a treat.  🙂
