  1. Cookies: There are many different things that you can do when it comes to cookies.  Consider packaging a mix of the bride's and groom's favorite cookies.  Attach the recipes to the package for an extra special touch.   Fortune cookies are always a hit too.  Gourmet cookies shaped as wedding cakes, doves, or other wedding symbols are popular choices among brides.   For a fun twist, consider serving milk boxes to go with the cookies. 

  2. Chocolates: Chocolates are always a popular choice.  From personalized M&M's and wrapped chocolate bars, to Hershey kisses, you can not go wrong with chocolate.   Many chocolate companies offer a selection of pre-made chocolate wedding favors that you may want to consider.

wedding_favors wedding favors your guests won't toss wedding planning advice from New Hope SoapWedding favors are a way of thanking your guests for participating in your special day. They are meant to communicate your appreciation for guests that traveled, guests that had to take the day off of work, or guests that hired a babysitter to be able to witness your moment. They are also the most lasting impression that a guest has of your event, as it's a piece of the wedding that goes home with them. 

Unfortunately, most wedding favors find their way into the trash bin only a matter of days later. This is not only a waste of money for you, but also gives your guests a pang of guilt as they toss that silly plastic diamond ring or mini photo of the bride and groom into the trash. How do you avoid this? By giving your guests a unique gift that they will actually want! Here's a look at the top 20 most popular wedding favor ideas.

A Rose By Any Other Name... 

If you're interested in saving a bit of extra money, purchase potted rose bushes and attach cute little tags with your guests names written on them. Bunch them in the center of the table to double them up as centerpieces and your guests can take them home at the end of the evening.

Resources that could make your wedding planning less stressful and more productive!

wedding planning adviceAh, weddings!  Love and romance fills the air while dreams of a future together occupy the heart and mind.  The wedding plans themselves, however; can frustrate and sap the energy of even the most excited bride-to-be.  To keep you from biting your nails over the plethora of decisions that must be made, take a look at these wedding planning resources created for helping a bride plan her own wedding.

Staying within your budget is important

This should be the first thing to consider.  From choosing the venue to bridesmaid’s gifts, before you know it, you’ve over-spent your wedding allowance.  See Bridal GuideThe Simple Dollar, and The Knot, for budget-friendly advice.

Organizee your ideas

To keep your ideas together, especially if you are playing around with more than one theme idea, a wedding journal comes in handy.  Zazzle offers an array of notebooks just for the occasion that range in price from $5 to $50 with a variety of subject and design options.  Of course, if you’re a super-organizer, any pad of paper will do.  For the computer savvy, there are web sites that offer online planning software to organize your thoughts and ideas.  The Knot offers iPhone apps such as a planning checklist, wedding budgeter, and guest list manager, as well as personalized wedding websites to help organize details and showcase your ideas to family and friends.
