Try Blizzard's Bones for cute mint favors

Promote minty breath, find a wedding favor and give to charity, all in the same cute package with Blizzard's Bones.

The thick, low-cal mints are shaped like a dog bone and are offered in collectible tins, with a different doggie featured on each. If you include your dog in your ceremony, everyone will get the gentle joke. (And if, like me, you sent your mutt to the doggie day spa for the weekend, you can have a picture to remember her by.)

These are more than just cute pics: the doggie scenes fit perfectly into a destination or themed wedding. There are snowman-building doggies for a winter wedding, doggies at the beach, huntin' doggies for weddings in the country—and by golly, there's even a bulldog doggie for all my fellow UGA grads.

The tins are small enough to work as favors or to tuck into a bridesmaid's bag—and wouldn't it be cute to get a different dog for each girl to match your attendants' respective pets? Alternatively, there's also a sugar-free gum for those of you who aren't mint eaters. And the extra-special bonus: a portions of the proceeds go to benefit animal charities and rescue groups. —from our Local Scout Atlanta blogger Melissa Diskin
