It is the end of the night, and what better way to say goodnight than with a take-away favor table filled with perfectly set rows of adorable, bow-topped favors? To adorn the table, I love a hand calligraphy sign reading "Sweet Dreams...Sweets for the Sweet." The packaging is half the fun, so choose the box, tin, container, wrap and more in your wedding colors. Fill with any choice of sweets and savories. Some of my favorites: custom-colored chocolates, mini cupcakes, macaroons or handmade, infused brownies and truffles from Cocoa on Etsy.com.
To stretch your budget, have one favor per couple—each couple takes only one as they exit. You can even have an attendant on hand to help offer one to each couple so there is no confusion.
