"Edible! My favorite favor was from my cousin's wedding. They sliced the wedding cake and put it in cute to go bags. It was tasty and I liked it because there wasn't cake sitting on all the tables while people danced and I got to eat it when I felt like it later that night." - Angela W.
"Keepsakes I can actually use! I received a hand fan one time at an outdoor wedding I attended. It came in handy then, since I was a guest, and I still use it today. Another was from a beach wedding. They provided flip flops for us 'guests' to wear so that we could scrub the ground and personalized luggage tags. They both came in handy then, and of course I still use them today. Well the flip flops are wearing thin now though..." - Sulean C.
"Neither...I hate 'Things'." - Tracey A.
"Edible only if it involves milk chocolate. Otherwise keepsakes, but only if they are good ones. LOL! I love how I can go visit some people who went to my wedding and they still have my picture frame keepsake of us on their mantles. Most are family but the fact that it is still out makes me feel like it was worthwhile. I got a compact one time, and I love a good love song CD." - Melva R.
"Neither. I usually throw out both. I do like the small pics I get in thank you cards of the bride and groom and believe once I received a matching picture frame as the favor. Those I liked!" - Nadeen W.
"Edible! Other things get thrown away or not used." - Erica W.
"Edible favors! Trinkets collect dust or get thrown out to prevent clutter!" - Aisha R.
"Edible. Although I will accept usable trinkets, like a fan, pocket tissues or CDs with good songs." - Michelle A.
While "usable" trinkets are appreciated, it looks like wedding guests enjoy edible favors more and I agree! One of the most popular pins on my Pinterest page is a cute jar of vanilla sugar that a bride and groom gave guests as a wedding favor. That favor idea and 46 others are included in this awesome list featured on Pop Sugar's blog, "Waste Not, Want Not: 47 Wedding Favors People Will Actually Use."
