homemade cookies — bake them beforehand (you could even freeze batches) and wrap them nicely.

homemade peanut brittle

candy buffet/bar – have vintage candies in different clear glass vintage jars, and provide glassine bags for guests to fill. (This is what I’m doing for our vintage/rustic wedding.)

Anything edible will be the most popular. No one uses trinkets.

Hi, try this ebay store – cheap, personalized gift ideas

and also try (submit a photo of the couple and they turn it into a jigsaw) cool, ea?

Highly recommended

Burn CDs with selections from your reception music; for a retro feel, use these blank CDs:

DOLLAR STORE…. mints in a glass or something. im sure a dollar store would have something or wal mart. or you could get creative and make ur own that match everything else in the wedding.

I like the idea of homemade cookies. You can pack them nicely in a box like these:-–Favor-Boxes-and-Bags–Favor+Boxes+and+Bags:30.html

Or if you don’t have time to DIY, you can consider these inexpensive wedding favors, which are all priced less than $1 each.–Favors-under-$1–Favors+under+$1.html

If you’re really into movies, I saw these cute movie themed coasters while shopping for my own favors. They have a kind of ‘Old Hollywood’ feel to them that feels a bit retro to me :) They’re just $1.25 each, and they have a spot to slip in a photo, so you can leave it empty and let your guests fill it themselves, or slip in your engagement photo or a cute or funny pic. I’ll include a link below. Happy Wedding Planning!
