Why choose food as your favor? Many times brides pick out favors that seemed like the perfect idea only to have an abundance leftover to take home after the wedding. Guests just don't take them!
Sure candy is something that people will eat while sitting at the table, but all the work that goes into putting favors together in those cute little expensive bags makes you wonder if it's really worth it.
How many time do you hear people say they had to stop and get a bite to eat on the way home from a wedding?.... about 90% of the time. Most of the time it's not that the caterer didn't have enough food, it's that the guests ate 4 hours ago and have been dancing and drinking. They have worked up an appetite!
Offering petite brown bags to guests as they depart the wedding is a valuable idea we have given our brides to please her guests and her budget which has really proven worthwhile. The bags are filled with all sorts of fun items ranging from Chicken Biscuits and Donut Holes, to Sliders and Fries.
Keeping your guests happy from beginning to end is so important and this is just one more way we have found to insure this happens.
Don't spend your money on favors only to have them left behind.
