How many are you doing favors? If so curious on what your doing, I was on the fence because a lot of my family friends just said it’s a Big waste. I was gonna do dog treats.. (cause our dogs are in the wedding)

    I ended up getting $1 lottery tickets for my guests. I put them in clear envelopes and have stickers closing the envelopes saying "wishes for riches from the new mr. & mrs." (which were purchased off etsy)

    We will have them out on a table with a sign saying "we hit the jackpot, we hope you do too!"

    One of our favorite things to do together is cook, so we thought it would be cute to give everyone a little bottle of olive oil. We plan on infusing some of them with different spices and will print up a little sign saying something along the lines of us loving to spend time together in the kitchen and encouraging people to have a date night at home and cook together, or something like that. It's kind of personal, and we knew we wanted to give something that people could eat, so it works perfectly for us.

    This is a great favor idea, Briana! I've never seen/heard of it before!

    I love the dog treats, so cute! We did favors. We did wine corks with the Colorado mountains on them, and lavender potpourri bags. I did the potpourri bags because my parents did the exact ones at their wedding. We had almost all the wine corks taken & we ordered extra, and a lot of the potpourri bags were taken (my mom made 200 for 125 guests so we had a ton anyway).

    We're having a photobooth with our names and wedding date on the printed photo for guests to take with them as their favor. Didn't want to waste the money on things that might possibly get left behind and then we'll end up having to take home with us. Definitely a preference on what you'd like to do.

    Just to clarify, the flask for the groomsman and my fiancé are the wedding party favors for his side. I did mini thermos cups for the bridesmaids/bridesman and myself. For the wedding we’re doing custom mason jars that will be at each guests table that they will use to drink out of and they didn’t even really cost that much!!!

    We'll be doing favors. I already have the bags mocked up and ready for order! We'll actually be talking with our bakery because we definitely want to have something edible like rice krispies or cake pops or something . If anything else it might be like a hangover kit and/or mints. Nothing too crazy. And our favor bags will double up as a Thank You. There's a personalized message on the bags!

    We’re doing custom wine glasses etched with our wedding monogram! We’re getting married at a winery and they had the option to order the glasses through them. It was only $5 a glass which I don’t think is too terrible!

    We are having a breakfast/morning wedding! Our favors are individual bags of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate! They'll be in cute bags with personalized stickers with cheesy sayings like "grounds for celebration" or "love is brewing".

    We are not because it’s expensive and we don’t feel that our guests will want the trinkets. However, we are doing a photo booth (also $$$ but we worked a good deal with our photographer for DJ/photo/booth/video if we did all 4). We are also doing welcome gift bags for OOT guests and most of our guests will be OOT. So most people will get them.

    Thank you! When I booked my photographer and DJ they had a guy who worked with them who does this and I booked him immediately! It's so different and something everyone will love.

    We didn't do favors. For me it was just an extra expense/thing to manage. We just hosted our guests well with lots of food, alcohol, and transportation from the hotel where we had a room block to the wedding. We did do welcome bags for those staying at the hotel, but nothing additional for everyone else.
