What is everyone doing/do for wedding favours? I was thinking cookies but would love some other options that are budget friendly! TIA

    We decided on a candy buffet as well as can koozies. Our “bar” is open, and it’s all canned beverages so we though koozies would be a nice added touch. I got them on Amazon (50 for $25) and customized them with my cricut and iron on vinyl. They say “to have and to hold and to keep your drink cold”.

    My fiancee came up with the idea of creating a cookbook of our favorite recipes to share with our guests. During the epidemic we both experimented a lot with cooking in the absence of date nights and we found new recipes for so many different things. We are including recipes for salads & vegetables, entrees, desserts and drinks. She is designing/typing the book and I will print it. We anticipate making about 50-60 copies given our expected guest numbers.

    Our centerpieces are doing double duty! We plan to have giant bowls of fruit as our centerpieces and as our favours. Our wedding is very food-inspired so glass bowls piled with grapes, lemons, limes, pears, pomegranates, etc.

    We’re doing coffee! Bought sealable bags on Amazon and customized a stamp with our names, wedding date and it says “The perfect blend” (got off Etsy) and filling with our favourite coffee blend. My thought was that with any leftover/forgotten favours we’ll end up using up the coffee anyways.

    We are skipping the favours and making a donation to a cause close to us.

    I did up a nice sign saying just that.

    Unless it is an edible favour it is an expense that isn't really needed.

    I could of ordered the packets and then fill them myself however I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg so I bought the packets and made the logo on my circuit machine (a lot of work as I had to do 60 of them) and then I filled them with our favourite blend of coffee! the packet fit about 1.5 spoons of coffee so a cute little amount!

    We are doing an open bar...so should we treat that as a "thank you"? Ha ha ha - I find the favors a waste of money, most of the time they're always left behind.

    I love this idea! I looked into Purdy's chocolates, they are so yummy. They said if I buy the boxes and bring to them they will pkg up the chocolate with love. Turned out to be half the price Smiley smile

    We were going for an edible favor, since then we have added a photo booth to our wedding. Now we are going to provide a photo of each couple as our favor.

    We're going with a candy bar. I got the jars for it off of marketplace for about $15. It was an incredible deal. She even gave me the tote bin for them 😊Wedding favours 1
    My kids are so excited about buying candy for it. I promised they could pick it out.

    We’re doing a candy bar! It’s reasonably priced and guests can choose if they want to make up a box or not. On the plus side whatever is left extra, my fiancé and I and our families can just take it home😋 So nothing will really go to waste!

    I think consumable is the best option for favors. I really enjoyed the time I got a cookie as a favor. Made a perfect snack for walking back to my hotel room haha

    Another favor I enjoyed was a when my friends had a photo booth. So having some fun photos from the night was awesome.

    I agree with others that if its a tangible item, most likely it wont get used or even taken. I really like the idea of glasses as favors (especially since our wedding will be at a brewery) but I think it needs to be done right. Personally, I wont use a glass with someone elses names on it, but if it had my name on (and even if it had the wedding date on it) I'd be more likely to use it.

    I'm loving seeing the options some of you are doing. Giving me ideas!!

    That would've been our second choice as my wife and I are also coffee drinkers. Did you ordered them as pre-packed samplers or did you have to make the packaging yourself and fill with coffee?

    Right?! I can't justify spending money like that for what?! Yes it's a nice gesture for coming to the wedding but it's 2022 and honestly do whatever feels right for you and your fiance. Spend that money on something else if you wish!

    Omg!!! I love that you said this! I totally agree! Every wedding I’ve been to I never got a wedding favour or I just forgot to take one cause I never thought of it! And I honestly can’t fathom spending $500 on cookies for every one to eat as a thank you lol!

    We've decided against doing favors. Half the time guests forget to take them home and thats money wasted in our eyes. We can instead use that money towards something else for the wedding

    Instead of the traditional favour, we are doing a late night snack. Most likely a poutine bar.

    We made our own beer and everyone took a bottle home. A lot of other couples do make-your-own wine but we prefer beer. Some places also have cider options. For the beer, it came to roughly $2 a bottle.
