Wedding guest favors

Hi ladies! :-)

So I've been trying to research what disney offers are far as party favors go for our wedding guests. The only disboard posts are from a few years ago. Do any of you have information on this or know where I could see my options?

Hope you're all having a magical weekend!

I know for the escape collection you can add different types of cookies or chocolate as favors. I'm not sure about any other packages.

We had chocolate name tags for our favors. Everyone loved them!

Does anyone have any idea as to how much favors through disney could cost? Such as the cookies or personal chocolates? I know it may be pricey, but I'm wondering if its just easier instead of worrying about favors and traveling/shipping them (we are from NY). We wanted something 'different" for favors, but I don't want the hassle of having to worry about it either :/ I'm not a fan of favors in the first place at weddings, but i sort of feel like it's necessary

We are going with chocolate place cards that are acting as a place card and a favor. They are $7.50/person. We really liked the idea of a 2 for 1 on this. Since we didn't want to bring them all the way from NJ, we went with what Disney had to offer.

I'll most likely go with what Disney offers too... we're coming down from NYC. I like the edible idea but every wedding I've gone to I've always come home with a little token and I think I'd like to offer the same thing. It all depends on prices. :-)

Thanks for all the tips!

We are doing a candy buffet with take out boxes. (Obviously that falls into the edible category though).
I definitely agree about the staying with Disney thing. We definitely could have done it cheaper if we organized it ourselves. But now we are two weeks out and I'm still shipping 3-4 boxes down to Florida (from NYC too) even though we tried to do everything with Disney. I would be freaking out ought now if I had to deal with more.

This is probably what we will do! I am especially excited about possibly having a caricature artist - did your guests really enjoy that??

How many guests were at your wedding? Was he able to draw pictures for all of them during the reception?

Did you buy containers for them to transport the pictures home? If so ,how much were they?

thanks!

The caricuture idea is very cute and I like the idea of a candy bar too. :-)

That sounds amazing and so different! The artist will definitely be an option. Thanks for sharing!
