    For our AHR we are doing a photobooth. We hired this amazing company and they have tons of props and frames. Totally awesome. AND when they print they print 8 pictures. 4 each side by side.. 4 for the person/couple to take home and a set of 4 to go in our guestbook and then they sign it. So its the best of both worlds!

    Good luck!
    that's another great idea... about how much does that set you back? i just emailed for a quote local to us in FLA.

        Well, I've been frantically searching for the 50mL bottles of Appleton Jamaican Rum to give out as favors. I planned for them to double as escorts card also with a tag attached with table numbers on one side and perhaps a drink receipe to be made with the rum on the other. I received an initial response from Appleton about a week and a half ago but haven't heard anything since. I'm starting to think that this isn't going to get accomplished as easily as I had originally thought.

        My second choice was a cookie bar. Nothing very tropical about it but....whatever.

              The photobooth is awesome. My best friend had one Oct 10th and it was so much fun. And now I have strips from the wedding of me & my FI and then one of my, FI, Mom, and stepdad. It was so much fun to go in there and take the pix.

                Great thread! I'm at a total loss for what I want to do for favours at our AHR. I want to keep the costs down but there are so many cute favours out there. I love the idea of a candy buffet but it's adults only and I don't know if everyone loves candy as much as I do. Keep the ideas coming!

                  I made seascape gel candles, they weren't that difficult to do just some sand, seashells, blue die and gel. With 50% off coupons at Michaels the gel wasnt as much as I thought. I made 150 of them for $1.74 each. I also made matchboxes to go with each of the candles. Easy to do as well..I bought matchboxes from Dollarama (10 for $1), designed labels with our names, date and logo, printed them off on a full label sheet, cut them out and stuck them on. They actually turned out really well, people who have seen them so far thought I ordered them.

                    Great thread with some really great ideas! My AHR is 6 weeks away, mid-march and I have no idea what to do for favours. I was thinking maybe just some candy as I could pick some up on sale after v-day is around the corner. I dunno, does that seem too cheap? I really don't want to have a huge expense either though.

                      I also thought of the candy bar, as our AHR will be 2 days before Vday. My mother hated the idea and says it's not for a wedding (even though this isn't really a wedding!) but whatever. I found shot glasses for about .60 a peice which i think is a great idea, then we could fill the shot glass with M&M's or something. I was thinking of putting on the shot glass "I went to Scott and Nicoles wedding and all I got was this shot glass!" and then the wedding date! But I have to think of some other type of wording because they are not actually coming to our wedding.

                      I feel like with shot glasses alot of people collect them, and it is something people can hang on to and its not awkward having our name on.
