    I personally love the last option as its got a favour and donation plus I love getting something edible as a favour cos u eat it enjoy it and then it’s gone, Plus love the idea of charitable donations especiallyat that time of year. Wit the snowglobes it’s a cute idea but I think a lot people might get rid of them, same with the bauble lovely idea but if its not in their colours they won’t keep it either just my opinion. The hot chocolate also works 🙂

    There are other ways to present a hot chocolate wedding favor, other than in a jar.Use a cellophane cone

    serve hot chocolate on a stick- melt your favorite chocolate- pour into ice cube trays- let set with a thank you stick in place. Write the isntructions on the back of the tag-“Stir into a mug of hot milk”. When the chocolate is set, bag them in cellophane bags.

    Here’s another version of hot chocolate on a stick:

    This one combines hot chocolate with an ornament

    As a nod to your science background, you could do hot chocolate mix in test tubes instead of vials like this blog:

    @the_future_mrs:  They are, aren’t they!

    You could package them in clear plastic ornament boxes. They would need to be transported carefully, otherwise you would lose the layering of the ingredients.

    im getting married a day before you and for the same reasons im planning a lot now too

     

    i bought my favors last week, silver snowflake ornaments that will lay flat at each persons place setting. im thinking of adding a ribbon in one of my colors instead of the silver string that it comes with

    anyways i only paid .41 cents a piece at hobby lobby and i dont have to wrap them or worry about them falling off the tables

    I’m really for the Christmas ornaments.. I think it’s cute and since it’s right before Christmas, everyone will be using them 🙂 Just make sure they are super special!

    I have a question for you though, if I may..

    I have actually planned the same date as you recently, and just saw your date and was instantly like “I NEED TO ASK HER THIS” because I’ve been worrying.. do you find that many people invited will still be able to make it for your wedding? I am worried since it is 3 days before Christmas, and a Sunday, that no one will be able to come 🙁 Am I just worrying too much? Do you think there will be problems with this? I know some people won’t be able to come, but I’m a bit scared that like only a few people will show up or such.. 🙁

    @the_future_mrs:  

    I generally like the idea of donating to charities as gifts, but for a wedding I think if you didn’t request on your invites for your guests to donate to the charity in lieu of giving you wedding gifts it looks quite tacky.  Like if you really cared, you would’ve forgone your own gifts instead of depriving your guests of their small gifts.  If that makes sense?  

    I like the hot chocolate in the cellophane one of the other posted showed.  It’s cute, classy, and could be pretty cheap to make.
