I have a blog about this topic.....www.eventsbydoyin.blogspot.com
Giving favors is on top of my list of wedding old-fashioned things to ditch! Seriously! Dedicate a song or a performance to all of your guests, make a cute, short speech, make them feel welcomed and appreciated. These people are your friends and family, they'll love you no matter what, a soggy chocolate or a tea light candle won't add anything to your event:) Be creative! Challenge the old fashioned rules put in place so long ago that we don't even know why ... And yes, give to charity instead!
I make Heavenly Cake Pops! They make PERFECT wedding favors! What is a Cake Pop? Typically it is about a 1/3 serving of chocolate cake coated in milk chocolate on a lollipop stick! They can be simple or as elegant as you would like them! They taste amazing and I've never seen left overs:)! There is always a few out there that enjoy them so much they scoop them off the tables;)!

I have been to about 8 weddings this year and another 4 or 5 last year, and I can tell you that most wedding favours I got were eaten or thrown away EXCEPT the clear acrylic picture frames I got.

The best wedding favours I received though were pictures from photo booths at a few of the weddings... they were printed instantly onsite with nice floral backgrounds and or costumes. I will be getting married next year and I definitely will get a photo booth - its fun and people can interact and dress up + get a nice souvenir photo to take home.

The picture frames were great, but it does add a little bit to the cost.

I do belive I am going to give out fans.

I am getting married August 27, 2011 at the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival. It will be hot. I was thinking that fans would be useful during the ceremony.

I am not sure where I am going to purchase my fans. I am also not sure if I am going to get them all one color or have different colors. I also was thinking of ordering personalized ones, although non-personalized would be much less expensive.

I have seen them made of paper; however, they may not be as durable.

My dress was purchased from the Renaissance Festival this year, and is Ivory, Tan, and lt blue.
Edibles are the clear choice if you're not quite sure ... brownie pops and cheesecake pops are very fashionable and fun right now. Check out Bakerella's cheesecake pop recipe. Anything chocolate is a hit. Those personalized chocolate Hershey's Kisses are cute. People also like seasonal edible favors like the mini maple syrup jars or olive oil bottles for fall. Caramel apples or apple cider packs are also good for fall. Mini liquor bottles (like those tiny bottles of kahlua) would be a big hit at some weddings and raise eyebrows at others but are a really fun way to express someone's ethnicity, e.g., Irish whiskey or Mexican tequila. Avoid Jordan almonds unless they are close to your heart or a traditional part of your wedding, aka Greek receptions, and if you buy them be sure to get the good kind. They come in several grades, and the lowest grade are like rocks, these give the almonds an undeserved bad reputation.

I think one of the classiest and most memorable things you can do with edible favors is to go local. Around here I would look at those little maple sugar leaves, or little jars of local honey. There is a regional sort of spicy ketchup around here called Woodstead that people go crazy for here; it would make a great favor. We also have a chocolate-pretzel artisan shop that would be a great source for favors. Hope that helps generate some ideas!

Why not try Artisan Truffles or Artisan Oreos
or Artisan Pretzels as Favors?

I hope this helps and congrats on your wedding.
For my wedding, my fiance and I are giving a donation to the Muscular Distrophy Association and the Heart Association in lieu of a direct present to the guests.  We have made arrangements for certificates to be created from both charities for each guest which I'll roll like a scroll and decorate and place in fabulous looking medieval wine goblets along with the place cards.  -

If you want to have something different that some edible, how about:

 

Personalised seed packets

Herb pots

Loveheart luggage tags

Sweepstake for famous horserace

Yo Yo

Fridge Magnet

Small silver photoframes

 

Hope this helps
