The only time I’m in favor of favors (heh) is when they are a) edible or b) useful at the wedding (like sparklers, rally towels, flip flops, pashminas, etc.). I also don’t want to devote a lot of my budget to favors. (Sorry, guests, I love you, but I’m taking you out for a night of dinner and dancing, so that’s where I’m focusing the funds.)
However, I do want to do something, if only because a pretty little favor box will dress up the table (plus, I have the boxes and all…). And so I figured, why not use my oh-so-lovely blog audience to get a little feedback before I decide? Here’s what I’m thinking:
Option One: Coffee Beans

Of course, my bag would have a much cuter sticker (total disclosure: I would probably just steal this adorable bean phrase.)
Option Two: S’mores Kit

Ok, cute, but maybe a bit pricey to actually put together? Not sure. And I’m a little worried it’s too cute for its own good. I guess the guest could take it home and make a s’more…would anyone actually do that?
Option Three: Homemade peanut butter cups (one dark and one white chocolate in each box)
It’s our favorite kind of candy, and I could probably make 300 pretty cheap…but it would take a while.
Option Four: Mixed CD

It’s pretty, but music is such a personal thing. And I couldn’t really use the boxes for this, I just think it’s a cute idea.
So, what do you think? Place your votes (and reasoning) in the comments section!
