I've been married for almost a year now and finally going to get around to posting my wedding favor idea. We were looking for something that is very personal to us and practical for our guests. Since our theme for the wedding was to showcase our love for food, we decided to give our guest the spice that my husband and I created together as a couple. We also included some of our favorite recipes that use our spice. IT was a big hit. SO many people have been coming to us and asking for more since the wedding. We might just package and sell them some day  Cheesy

We put a label on it calling it "Liza & Steve's Spice of Life".  I added a last minute Wine Glass Charm to the jar. My husband bought the different spices on line and we mixed the secret recipe ourselves. The jar costed about $1.25 each we purchased from Bed Bath and Beyond. The post card and label I purchased from vistaprint that cost a total of $25 including shipping. The wine charm was created using stuff I already have around the house. The total cost per favor was less than $3 per jar.

That's an original and lovely favor.  It's nice because you know it will get used and last a while and the jar is re-usable.  Plus it's a gift that has meaning since the two of you created it together.  Including some recipes is also a great idea for those guests that maybe aren't comfortable in the kitchen.

Yes, I'd say this is a perfect favor.  Doesn't it feel just great to have people ask for more?

I bet everyone took them home too!   (So often at the end of the reception there's a considerable scattering of forgotten and unwanted favors.)

We had 130 guests and I prepared 100 jars.  We found 3 left on the table at the end of the reception.  But they didn't last long after the wedding and people asked for quart containers of the stuff because they use it on everything.  It is definitely a wedding favor that didn't go to waste.
