Creative favor ideas
Tired of seeing the same keychains and bubbles in every wedding favor catalogue? Here are my top ten ideas for favors that your guests will remember long after the big day.

Welsh Love Spoons
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones gave Welsh love spoons like these as a favor at their wedding. Historically, the spoons were originally an invitation from a young man to a young woman to begin courting, and now symbolize love. These carved wooden spoons make a unique favor - especially if you attach a note about their meaning.

Individual cake favors
I adore these miniature cakes which you can personalize with your monogram or a daisy. She also make little cakes that look like the classic Tiffany box. Other items include monogrammed cookies, sugar boxes, and floral napkin rings.

Make your own wedding favors
Michael's offers a gallery of ideas and instructions for making your own wedding favors.

A stylish favor supersite
This website offers a variety of chic and classic favors. My favorite is the blooming favor box.

Customized wedding cds
A customized cd of your favorite songs has been a popular favor for several years now. Yet with the new crackdown on copyrights, you need to find a way to do it right. Mycoolgift.com will package your cd and for an extra special touch, will print a picture of the two of you on the CD itself.

Mouthwatering dessert favors
Give favors from your favorite bakery. Black Hound, one of my favorites, has chocolate truffle sauce with coffee liqueur that is a decadent topping for ice cream, and a favor your guests are sure to treasure.

Italian wedding favors
If you're having an Italian wedding, give these traditional favors or bombonieres.

Picture frames
A picture frame is a popular wedding favor, as it does double duty as a place card holder. Also consider giving your guests a picture of yourselves, or a favorite poem to personalize the gift.

Victorian Wedding Favors
Victorians assigned great importance to the meaning of flowers, and gave rosemary as a symbol of remembrance for a wedding favor. Find great rosemary gifts at this specialty site.

Beach/Island wedding favors
Let your guests take home a piece of your beach wedding. Check out these beach in a bottle favors.

Wild Flowers
Give your guests a gift that will grow as much as your love does. These wildflower seeds can be customized as table tents, napkin rings, or place cards.
