I’m making mine. What type of favor are you wanting or what is your theme?

Edible favors seem to go further.

Have you thought about putting together little pillow boxes with a couple bags of your favorite teas? You could put the honey stick on top of it, tied with some cute ribbon or baker’s twine.

Pillow boxes are easy to find at Michael’s or online. If you have a paper cutter like  a Cricut, there are quite a few cartridges that would allow you to cut them out yourself.

Good luck!

My sister in law makes custom chocolates so I had her make our favors for us. I purchased silver boxes from staples. 50 boxes for 12 bucks as they were being Discontinued. I bought the ribbon from fabric land during a 50 percent sale. You can also take advantage of sales at michaels!

I have a few friends that bought their favors from this site : Summer Wedding Favors. or Practical Wedding Favors.  Tons of sales! I would recommend bottle stoppers, coasters, bookmarks, salt & pepper shakers. Or hand fans such as sandalwood fans or paper fans if your wedding is outdoor! Good luck!

We’re having large vases full of rolls of lifesavers as the Fiance and I used to share these candies in high school – over 30 yrs ago.  As well out escort cards are mini paintings on mini easels that will match a larger painting on the tables so guests can take these home as well.  (We are not painting all of these but using coloured prints and modpodging them to the canvases).

I’m making fabric flowers with a clip on the back that can worn in the hair or clipped to a jacket lapel. They’re actually the escort cards and guests can take them as favors. I think the idea of additional favors is silly since we’re already throwing a big party with dinner and alcohol.

We are getting personalized wedding koozies from http://www.totallyweddingkoozies.com.  We thought koozies were a very practical, reasonably priced favor, that our guests could use again and again.

If you still want to do mini-honeys as favors but need a less expensive source, here are 2 suggestions:

1)  Ruchers de Lorraine (http://www.ruchersdelorraine.com/en/honey-1/showcase-7-types-of-honey-82.html) — Fiance got our mini-pots here, in 8 different varieties (they come in sets of 7 flavors, but not all of our 7-pot sets have all the same flavors as each other, so we end up with 8 choices).  Pros:  the honeys are *under* $2 each at the current exchange rate, including shipping from France; they’re all cool, gourmet/quirky flavors some of which are hard to find in the U.S.; we’re supporting an independent, family-run business instead of a huge faceless corporation (if you care about that sort of thing).  Cons:  prices are in euros, so you’ll have to convert them to dollars to get your actual cost; honeys are very small (30 grams each); jars are labeled in French, so you may need to let your guests know what they are! (I went the whole 9 yards & developed an English key to the flavors, so if you do go this route, let me know if you’d like a copy & I’ll send you one.)  N.B. I used to be a French teacher, so this option made sense for us.

2)  mastercaviar.com (http://www.mastercaviar.com/caviar/french-honey-60-1-oz.-kosher.html) — as suggested by MadTownGirl in another Hive post.  At $38 per 60 jars, her suggestion works out even more affordably than mine, with each jar ringing in at just $0.63 each!  Shipping is probably additional, but unlikely to equal the cost of the honey (possibly depending on your shipping preferences).  Also, these look to be glass jars rather than the plastic that ours came in.

Good luck in your honey hunt!  πŸ™‚
