I'm getting married in two months, so I've had wedding favors on the brain lately. There are so many options out there, but it's difficult to please everyone. However, there are plenty of ideas out there that will not end up in the garbage. Here are 21 of my favorites that I've received in the post (or would love to get in the future!).

Good point @but... it's a good idea to consider how many out of town guests you'll be having and what would work best for your particular situation.

The problem with the liquids is that guests who flew can't bring them back through security :( a lot of the others, like plants, would also be hard to transport for the return trip home.
