Re: Favors?

  • We are not doing favors.  I am having a photobooth and I am having flip flops for the girls.

  • I am going to grow my own rosemary, garlic, and other herbs the spring of 2013. Then buy olive oil in bulk and make my own infused olive oil :)

    We wanted to do something "like us" and we love to cook. Also if no one takes theirs home we will definitely use them.

  • I am not wanting to spend too much money on the wedding - we want to move into a larger house shortly after getting married, and I want a LONG honeymoon, so I am not sure if we are going to have favors.  If anything, we were thinking of doing something where the place cards could somehow double as a favor?? But we aren't sure yet. 
  • We're not doing favors. Most people don't take them home and I want to spend the money elsewhere. I do like Toribrite's idea and if you are doing favors, I suggest something that you and your hubby can "use" if people don't take them home.

    We are using our favors as our escort cards, we are hoping to cut costs this way. Our favors are going to be caramel apples, wrapped in plastic of course, then I am attaching a leaf cutout that says each persons name and which table they are assigned to. Hope this gives you some ideas!

  • Not doing favors, no one will notice and it can cut costs and time.

  • We're doing a candy/cookie buffet where they can fill their bag and take it home if they'd like.


  • FI and I probably won't do favors, but we've thrown around the idea of doing a photobooth and allowing people to take home the pictures as their favor. I also like the idea of caramel apples or little s'mores boxes (boxes with marshmallow, chocolate, and graham crackers).

  • we are doing the smore boxes...using it has the escort card/favor...works for us since we are having a bonfire after too
  • Like many others, I consider favors to be a waste of time, money and energy since most people don't appreciate them.  But we are considering a photobooth if it's in the budget.

    Oriental trading has packages of buttermints for 6.25. I was thinking of putting them in bowls on the table or getting personalized matchbooks.
    either way we have such a small budget that if we do them, they need to be under 50.00

    I know our main favor is going to be a CD - with songs on it that are special to FI and I ... they are pretty cheap to make , and we can print picture labels with our names and dates for the CD itself and the liners for the cases as well...
    my sister and I actually got lots of practice several years ago when we made them as favors for the anniversary party we threw for my parents - they were easy then - and that was before itunes made it even easier
