Are you doing wedding favors?

Is it just me or are you having trouble deciding on a wedding favor?


Perhaps it is just me because I am so picky, detail oriented and now I want it to match my theme, which will be impossible because my Virgoan mind has yet again came up with another detail glitch.  My first wedding idea hands down were magnets that I even designed and got samples from zazzle.com.  Since I have sent out my invitations, I started thinking if guest are couples, why would they want two magnets? Then I ran into the dilemma of what would be universal for the ladies and the men? I was going to do coasters, but none caught my eye or matched my wedding theme, today I thought about doing shot glasses because the men could use them as shot glasses and the women could use them as votive holders. I think I am going to go with this option but why did I see these cute rose soaps that I want to give to the women????? Lmbao!!!! The theme of my wedding is roses by the way.


So are you doing wedding favors and if so, what are they and are you as anal as I am?

I put together these boxes as favors and inside I filled them with colored flavored chocolate hearts so each box had a couple blue heart that tasted like vanilla almond, then there were green hearts that tasted like Key lime and then yellow hearts that were lemon chifon.... everyone loved them...I found a local lady who made all the chocolate hearts

 Yes, it took me forever to decide becuase I wanted something 1.) people wouldn't just throw in their junk drawer or the trash and 2) went with my wedding colors.... so when I found the personalized color hearts and could individualize the flavors I was sold.... and then I figured who would eat the chocolate... if anything they'd bring it home for later

Yeah and most the couples I heard the women were stealing their SO's chocolates, so it was definitely a hit with the women, LOL... and then they ended up with double chocolate cause they got their hubbys :) ha

I would have a tough time for this too if it wasn't for what we chose. We got a photo booth, so that is our favor! We couldn't add in another cost by doing something in addition to that, so that's what it is! We are also doing a cookie bar, so I count that as well ;)

Mine is a lot more work than I planned! UGH. I got mini terra cotta pots (3 for a $1 at dollar general) and painted them white. I'm in the process of putting a black ribbon around them (Our colors are white and black and a pop of red) and then I'm getting seed paper from http://www.botanicalpaperworks.com/ and cutting them in a flower shape with a scrapbook paper punch thingie and then glueing to a stick, putting soil in the pots and then the stick with the seed paper! That's it lol That's mine. I loved the plant idea but its expensive to do actual potted plants. No idea where I will put them but I'll figure that out later lol Good luck finding your own!

I am doing chocolate starfish and seashells and dusting them with pearl dust (silver and pearl) that will go in a little blue box with a brown bow. I guess here in a few weeks I better get cracking. LOL I have the molds just need the chocolate and the time!

I am doing a popcorn bar for my favors.  Our theme is "Our NYC Love Story" and we always have movie night every week and make popcorn from an old fashioned popcorn maker that I bought for FI one Christmas.

I am picky about it too :/ I've decided not to do any favors for the moment and if I find time for them later, then I'll consider an edible favor only :]

mine was a bell with a couple as a holder..i like the essence of bells as gifts for every guest..coz someday if ever i hear a sound of it..it will always reminds our vows together..but thats only for adults..for bambni, i stocked the box with chocolates for them to enjoy..but during receptions.. all the kids like to have their own bells coz they like to played with it..im just glad i have several excess..


here are my boxes which i formed as cake..

I think the shot glasses are a cute idea.  We're having a photobooth so I just ordered magnetic frames for the photo strips.  I order one for everyone, I figure people will be going in more than once to use the booth so they'll use them :)

I'm not doing traditional favors at the table settings. Instead, since our wedding is during the summer at 11am, outside, we are having a welcome table with the TOJ packets, personalized water bottles, bubbles and the fan programs. Then at the reception we are having a photo booth so everyone can take home a pic with our personalized banner on it and a candy table

I'm such in the same dilemma as you ladie! I actually hesitate between a tea/coffee bar where people could do their own selection and bring a little bag of coffee/tea at home OR buying lottery ticket for every guest (and hoping someone would win a lot of money!!!!). I will continue to think about it!

We did a charitable donation to a domestic violence shelter since my cousin past away as a victim of DV. It was our way of including her in our day <3

We're thinking about doing some sort of edible favor but nothing is set in stone yet.

I love everyone's ideas!  What's funny is half the things I come up with I never intended on doing until someone says I know you are doing this or that for your wedding! Lol.

I never wanted to do favor originally, cause in Italy many people have them and later they just catch dust in people's homes. but then I found some so pretty, that I did them. they are filled with almonds with chocolate and different flavors. :-))
