We gave out homemade fudge from a local vendor - we had none leftover! Their pricing was reasonable too since we were buying in bulk and it was made fresh a few days before our wedding and they boxed it up for us!
I love this idea, and the boxes are so freaking cute, I might steal this idea. We are had decided to give biscotti to our guests since a place near us makes the most amazing biscotti in such fun flavours. They are 2.50 each.
My fiance and my families are both mainly of Dutch origin, so we went with a traditional Dutch chocolate letter B (for his last name). They are only sold at Christmas time so this is going to be a nice treat for all the Dutch people in May. Also the chocolate is delicious!
My mom makes the most amazing salsa. I've made it with her the last couple years, and this year my future Mother-in-law joined us. So we are going to do small jars of salsa for everyone, as everyone always loves it when I bring it out, and it has nice memories for the 3 of us.
Were doing cupcakes. We couldn't decide between two cake flavors so decided to do one as a cupcake favor. I'm a HUGE sweets person so it's perfect. Each favor has the cupcake, custom box, and tag with our wedding date. They came to $3 a piece.
We had a variety of cookies made by an old friend! We did 2 cookies per package and there were NONE left - I even ordered extra so that we would have a few to take home.. but someone grabbed a bunch of them because they were so good!!
We didn't want a bunch left behind, so we went with something edible and had fudge made from a local vendor that's well loved in the area. I printed labels for everyone as well that included menu choices and any allergies so the servers would know who was who for the plated dinner.
We are doing popcorn because my FH is a big movie guy! This is what they will look like (except with our names and date) and they cost $100 for 100 of them with clear bags and twine included. We are getting the popcorn from Kernnels and it will cost $35 per bag and we will need two!

That is an awesome idea!! Love it! I bet your guests were so happy with those! If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your tags from? I'm having trouble finding tags like that to put on my favours.

This is what we’re doing too! My FH and I have 2 of them at home and they are our go-to drinking glasses for almost everything! So we figured they’d be a great gift to give everyone else. Haha
We are going to just do something practical! We're giving mason jar mugs for people to use at the bar and then for them to take home. And we're going to add tags on them with our names and date of our wedding.
We wanted something that people would use afterwards so we went with honey as it is very versatile and most people like it and it also went nicely with our theme haha. We went with a local beekeeper and because we were buying in bulk it was a decent price for the product. It was just under 200$ for 50 large jars with little dippers. Probably considered expensive but it was totally worth ot to me. We got so many compliments and the honey was delicious!
