Hi, I’m getting married this Halloween and I had planned on giving everyone a mini trick or treat pail in the shape on a cauldron or jack o lantern at their seats with several small favors inside that they could then use to “Trick or Treat” at our candy buffet.
But recently I’ve been reading a lot that you’re only supposed to give out one favour per guest.
Is this true? Does that matter a lot?
I’m sorry I’m so inexperienced at this, I’ve never been married before.
My ideas for the favours were things like:
* Bars of clear glycerine soap with beautiful gothic art prints in the centre and a nice unisex smell of pumpkin and coffee.
* Mini sandalwood scented bubbles that come in fun “Witches Potion” bottles.
* Tiny credit card sized Ouija boards.
* Antique key shaped bottle openers.
* A personalized CD of the theme music we are planning on playing at the reception.
Everything, all up, comes to less than $20 per person.
We are having a very small wedding, with less than 20 people attending.August 24, 2013 at 6:56 am #414877
I don’t think there is a rule and you can give whatever you want. I’m giving little jars of jam with 5 sugared almonds tied to them…the almonds are a cultural thing (Greek background)!

Sounds awesome! No one is going to complain about getting more than expected!September 23, 2013 at 12:56 pm #418979
To be honest, I think it’s really just up to you and how much room you have in the budget. My partner and I were thinking 3 or 4 because we couldn’t choose. We’re both nerds/geeks and we’re thinking of reflecting that in our gifts and little touches in the ceremony.
I guess the best way to think about it would be this: could $400 be better spent somewhere else in the wedding or is it something you can afford to put aside for gifts? If you can spare the cost, I say go ahead.
