    Default What is the most useful wedding favor you have gotten or gav

    Hi, I'm getting married next year and I would like some help with the
    favors I don't want to give out favors that won't be useful when my
    guests get them home.

    I hate the expensive junk. I never know what to do with it; it never fits
    in. My fave favors are homemade magnets, seeds, mini plants, bookmarks, or
    tree ornaments (the last only if you know all your guests are
    Christian). You can make these cheaply, add cute or meaningful quotes, and
    everyone can enjoy them.

    We gave out packets of Marigold Seeds. I bought them in
    bulk and the repackaged them into small envelopes then
    printed some stickers on the laser at work :

    Please plant these marigold seeds in your garden to help
    keep pests away.
    Something like that, can't remember the exact words.

    I did 250 for under $20.
    Hope this helps

    Hmm--we didn't give out any favors. I guess because I've trashed everything
    I've brought home from weddings--mostly candles.

    I would think something edible would be the best choice--fancy candies or
    cookies or chocolates. There are lots of people on Flylady like me who
    don't want any little useless "pretties" sitting around, lol. And
    definitely nothing with your name and wedding date on it that they would
    feel compelled to save and create clutter with.

    Hope this doesn't sound too harsh I am just very anti-trinket But if
    it's something I can use up and enjoy for a brief moment, that's okay.

    Thanks--I'm a flybaby too and that's sort of the message I was trying
    to get across I'd rather have a really good piece of chocolate
    personally. I still have a rose bud thing that was made out of hershey
    kisses and cellophane that was from my ex-boyfriend's brother's wedding
    back in 1995. Why am I keeping that?!?

    What about matchbooks with your names & dates on them? They can use the
    matches. Get the ones that come in a box, rather then the regular kind. Just
    to be different.

    See, if it wasn't done up so "pretty", you could have had yourself a tiny
    little chocolate fix a few years ago and cleared that baby out of your
    house!! Might not taste so good now, and now it is officially "clutter"

    That is true and honestly, I may have thrown it away during a fling,
    but can't remember. In my defense, I did only save 2 or 3 of the candy
    bars from my own wedding. I may put them in a shadow box or something.
