Do you still have the trinket/favor from the last wedding you attended? When I think back, generally I can remember getting something, but not what it was. The last wedding I went to the couple decided, for that very reason, to not hand out favors.
Mr. T and I decided to go with edible favors; our personal favorite key lime truffle from See's Candy. We hope our guests will enjoy them and appreciate not having another dust collector. Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking the traditional shotglasses, wine stoppers, or printed memorabilia. I just know that they are not for us. I am hearing from more and more Future Mrs' out there that they are going with a more personalized and unique favor.
Here are some great ideas for the DIY bride! Notice they're all edible ;-)
