    Edible favors are always best, otherwise you risk having a ton left over. Most people don't want a shot glass or a coaster with someone else's name and wedding date. That being said, we gave out blankets as favors for our late November wedding. We got a great deal on them and were fine with donating any leftovers. They were a huge hit and we didn't have any left.

    We aren't having wedding favors, they were an unnecessary expense for us. The general rule is that the best favors are edible/drinkable. More than likely, no one will use a koozie/bottle opener/etc. personalized with your names and wedding date. But food is always a hit! When we were thinking of doing wedding favors, we planned on having some sort of candy in a bag with a tag that said "A sweet ending to our new beginning" Smiley smile

    As a guest:


    Favorite - Christmas Ornament (we each got one - one was a gold deer & the other was a silver angel) & wine stopper (it was a shamrock)

    Least Favorite - Super gross college-themed cookies (looked cute but tasted SO BAD)


    As a bride:


    We did wine stoppers with the Colorado Mountains & lavender potpourri bags. Almost all the wine stoppers were taken and probably 60% of the potpourri bags (which we anticipated & ended up keeping the rest and giving more to our parents). We had a TON of food so edible favors wouldn't have been that great.

    The candy is a really cute idea! And I 100% agree- I hate when couples put their name on their favors.

    Ooh the potpourri bags are such a nice idea! My FH and I are major foodies so we also plan on having a lot of food at our reception meaning edible favors might not be the way to go.

    Yeah - we had SO many appetizers, a ton of food for dinner (in addition to salad & bread before), and SO many desserts. Plus coffee & a full open bar. No one was hungry at the end of our wedding! We did the potpourri bags because my mom and dad did the same favors at their wedding Smiley smile

    I’m going edible. I found this chocolate covered coffee bean idea on Instagram, and I’m all about it. 😍 Wedding Favor Ideas 1

    I didn’t think they were necessary, but I did succulents in mini tin buckets with the guest name on homemade plant tags. We has them on the tables already, so it added a nice touch to the tables, along with the centerpieces. I’ve received scratch off lotto tickets, chapstick with custom labels on them, olive oil, and greeting-card sized place cards with the guest’s name written on one side, and on the other side, there was an picture of the guest with either the bride or groom (often an older photo). That one was especially fun because everyone was checking out everyone else’s photos and they brought up discussions about what was going on in the photos.

    Our idea for favors are little lottery scratch off tickets in an envelope that says “I hope you find a winner like I have” 😀

    You can never go wrong with something edible. We're thinking of doing a dessert table. We're going to have little personalized goodie bags that they can fill up.

    My favorite is the dessert bar and goodie bags! We are doing a popcorn bar and suggesting people take bags to go. Most have a long drive home if they didn't get a hotel!
