Here are my dos and don'ts of wedding favors... and some ideas as well!
DO give your guests something they will use.
Example: candy they can eat while listening to speeches at your wedding...

DO give all of your favors a personal touch.

DO tell your guests thank you.

DO think outside the box.
DON'T give your guests something they'll never use again.
DON'T waste a big chunk of your budget on wedding favors.
In my opinion this is how much you should spend:
$10,000 or less budget- $1.00 per person on favors
$15,000 budget- $1.50 per person on favors
$20,000 or more budget- up to $2.75 per person on favors
DON'T give your guests gender biased gifts.
Example: how many men will use a chap stick? or a candle?
DON'T skip favors all together... like I said these people are giving you a gift and celebrating with you, they deserve something too.
