Wedding favours that don’t suck

Hi all,
I’d love to hear your wedding favour ideas or what you actually chose. I do not want anything that will just get tossed in the garbage or in the back of the cupboard. I was thinking something edible may be the best option. Thank everyone!

    ...and with the vendor doing all of the prep work it is going to be time saver for sure! The other component I like is picking our own chocolates- we can go nut free or sugar free or a mix of all of them!

    Hahahaha! Oh yeah, it was so delicious too!
    Also, a family friend made it and we did not have to pay a thing, that was their gift to us! 😁

    Hello Laura,
    We did calendar cookies with our name and date for our favour. It was an amazing option for us, since we did not know what to do.

    My fiancé and I make our own maple syrup at our sugar shack so we will be bottling some up and putting a label on it that says "Love is sweet" for our favours!

    We're donating to a bully breed dog rescue as we have 3 fur babies , and at each plate will have a chocolate dog paw truffle and the tag will have our dogs picture on the back and the front will have a note thanking the guest and what charity we decided to donate to . We both agreed that more times than not people dont take the favours or keep them so why not give it to something that needs it and is close to our hearts

    We're doing a candy/popcorn bar! Our venue has two rooms: a larger ballroom and a smaller lounge area. Our lounge area will be the "Sweet/Salty Room" where our cupcakes (instead of a wedding cake) and a candy/popcorn bar will be. We'll have little bags for guests to put candy into and tie up so that they can take them home with them. We'll also have popcorn bags where guests can take some popcorn to munch on! My fiance absolutely loves popcorn and I love candy so we thought this was a cool way to incorporate our likes into a wedding favour.

    We're doing a mirror-style photo booth. We consider the pictures from that for guests the favours.

    We went to a wedding that have little jars of jam - also a great idea! Edible is the way to go.

    Little chocolate boxes were my first instinct too. Simple, and many people will enjoy them.

    Great idea! Coffee definitely won't go to waste even if some get left behind.

    We are strongly considering having a 4 pack of chocolates, customized as we wish. The store will pack and label our order- all we have to do is pick them up and add ribbon if we wish.

    We are doing coffee for adults and hot chocolate for the kids. The coffee bags say "Love is Brewing" and our names and date and the hot chocolate bags say "Hugs and Kisses from the Mr and Mrs"

    Nicely packed chocolates for each seating is a nice idea of a favour for guests to enjoy or take home as their choice. Customized candy is also a great concept to make as your day with initials.

    Alternative is seeds that you feel is good to plant with a Thank you note.

    Such a cute idea! I like the idea of an edible favour, something sweet to enjoy at the end of the night sounds perfect.

    I think that's definitely the way to go - I definitely do not want things left behind at the end of the night.

    We were originally going to do beer coozies for our guests... but we decided on doing a wicked photo booth where guests get to take home the pictures they take instead. This way its no "wasted" money that will get left on the table or stuck in a drawer and never used , and people will have memories of our night to take home

    If you want to have that identifiable customized trinket with your name, a homemade wine, cider, or beer would be a hit. It's a consumable, you can customize it with your name or initials, but it won't sit uselessly in someone's place forever. And any leftovers can be easily consumed yourselves.
    We did individual beer bottles with a custom label as our favor. A lot of friends have done small wine bottles. You can also order Jones soda with a custom photo.
