    My husband and I are in our late 20's and we just got married in Florida on a beach at a Hawaiian resort -- we are from Philadelphia and Canada so it was a nice destination wedding.

    As far as gift was concerned, my place card holders were little shells with slits in them so they could take those home and use to hold a photo -- other than that we decided to donate to a charity in honor of our guests and we made an announcement at the reception letting them know that. That way you have less to worry about when you get there

    Congratulations on your wedding.

    I think this is a terrific idea. Your guests still had a momento with an easily transportable (good old airline luggage limits ) photo holder and a charity, of which all are suffering with the bad economy, has benefited.

    I asked our wedding planner what we could give as an authentic wedding favor. She recommended bolo preto (black cake). It's a molasses rum fruit cake....and though it sounds odd, it is delicious! Apparently it's served at the most special of occasions - weddings and holidays. We paid about $6 for box, ribbon, and 4 pieces per person, cheaper than the favors I was thinking about earlier and no shipping/packing involved. AND Folks are still raving about how tasty it was! My aunt is making it for Christmas!

    I knew we had to go with this when I asked my Trinidadian co-worker about it and his eyes just widened at the memory of it.
