I am looking for favor ideas for our guests. We're having about 100 guests at the wedding, and about 85 of them are coming from out of town. Many of them are flying, so things like wine bottles, etc are out of the question for their return trip. Does anyone know of something like a keepsake that would be travel-friendly, ie not liquid, and relatively not fragile? Thanks!
Re: Favors for mostly OOT guests?
I still have a handmade ornament from a wedding, and I enjoy hanging that on my Christmas tree each year. Otherwise, I'd probably say just go with something edible. I'd like it back in my hotel room after the wedding.
Oh wait~I heard of a bride who used luggage tags for table cards/favors. I'd use them again, and thought that was a cute idea.
But little photo frames, votive candles, key chains, koozies, coasters....not so much.

First of all, favors aren't necessary. I've tossed all those little picture frames and coaster with hearts on them that I ever received. I have several cds that were given as favors. One of them I like and listen to often, most of them are not my style at all.
Edible favors tend to go over well. Since your guests are mostly OOT, you could do a little bakery box for each person with a muffin in it and one of those mini jars of jam. They'll appreciate that either when they back to their room or in the morning.

You can also put a spin on the more traditional place card holder/photo frame/coaster idea, and give this mini photo album. More people will hold onto something like this because it is compact but also allows them to put multiple photos in it:
