Help! Are you doing wedding favours??

I’m totally on the fence about wedding favours. I can’t even begin to think of any ideas, nor is there anything that has caught my attention.

    If I could do it, I'd have succulents as my wedding favors, however, due to the fact that several of our guests are coming from out-of-town, it's not an option. We will most-likely have a small dessert in a cute plastic box.

    We are ordering little drinking jars with lids , this way they can be used through out the night, saves us from dealing with plastic cups all night ! since we are hoping to have our dogs at the wedding as well , i have thought about putting little bags of dog treats out for people to take home too Smiley smile

    This is what we gave our guests apart from food and chocolates. A thank you card with it tp save the time to send out later.

    The food and chocolates were given out in the welcome bag.

    One of my friends did small jars of crab apple jelly. That was another good one!

    I think favours are always a good idea! I wanted to make sure I’m giving something people can actually enjoy and make use out of. So what I’m doing is ordering customized M&Ms.. which may sound funny but they actually are really cute! You can put your pic on them, choose what colours you want, and also what they say on them ! I’m going to order them in bulk and buy little jars, place bows on them with a “thank you” tag Smiley smile hope this helps!

    Oh a good favour I saw was sunglasses with the bride and grooms names and wedding date in the arms of the glasses. They got married outside and put them on everyone's seats. Was perfect cause it was a bright sunny day!

    We are thinking, since we are both teachers, that we will get pencils made with our names on them with a little heart beside it. I think they will be cute and everyone uses pencils!

    I went to a wedding last year and the wedding favours were 2 free bottles of wine on each tables. This is a good idea if you have no clue what to give. Most people like wine and it doesn't cost that much if you make your own wine. Smiley smile

    We are having a candy and chocolate table, with burlap bags that say "love is sweet" on them, from party city. That way guests can enjoy it while they are there and take some with them

    We originally planned on doing favours but recently decided it wasn’t worth spending the extra money on. We were going to do little chocolates packaged with our names on it but we’re going to have a midnight snack so I really don’t think they’ll be missed.

    We are doing little burlap bags filled with wildflower seeds. We are decorating with burlap and lace and our flowers are wildflowers so it goes with our theme and is easy and people will hopefully actually spread them somewhere.

    Exactly that’s my issue too. I don’t even remember any favours I’ve gotten in the past that I still have? Or even recall keeping them. So I can’t decide if it’s worth it

    My fiancé and I are doing little succulent plants with a gnome in them. He really loves plants and I think gnomes are very interesting. All of this we are doing ourselves we are cloning the plants and growing them ourselves and I started making gnomes.
    It’s kind of nice since we are paying for this ourselves so we have to improvise on how much we spend but at least this is not going to cost a lot of money.

    We are on the fence as well. I think it's an extra expense and depending on the favors they may nor may not be forgotten after the party is over. Also people don't generally keep the favors after the wedding. We are probably not going to do them

    Thanks!
    I don’t have pictures yet because we’re not making them until the spring or summer probably. I did a test one to make sure we bought the right amount of tea, however it was disassembled right after. Sorry! Haha

    Hahaha luckily my fiancé and I have that in common. I would imagine you could do it with anything though - if you have a favourite movie night snack, a favourite cookie that you could do little packets up with custom branding (like the paper stapled onto the cellophane wrapper) , coffee beans could even be cute if you’re both coffee drinkers.

    That's super cute! I love ideas that incorporate things specific to the couple! Sometimes I wish my fiance like tea as much as I do...but he's already threatened to throw out all my tea once we get married! haha

    And wine glasses as we can pick them up for 1.00 each instead of renting for .40 cents each and deposit.

    Considering Hershey's kisses purple and black foil wrappers as he proposed in Vegas and these are our wedding colours. Also we have gone to the Hershey's store 2x. Or Custom made fudge by a local business who makes over 300 flavours.
