Make a play list of the couple's favorite songs and the ones that are significant to them, such as the song they first danced to at their wedding. Burn the songs onto CDs for guests to take home, or purchase small flash drives and load the play list onto them. These devices are very affordable when bought in bulk.

Another option is to give tokens that relate to special moments in the couple's life. Give out small Eiffel Tower figures if they vacation in Paris each year, or purchase small notebooks for all the guests if the couple is known for their love of writing.

A charitable couple may prefer that guests make a small donation to a favorite cause in their name. Pass out cards explaining the donation. Attach very small tokens to the cards; for instance, after donating to the local zoo, give zoo bookmarks as a small favor for guests to take home.

When in doubt, return to the gold theme. Another idea is to fill small golden boxes with candy or cookies made from the couple's favorite recipe.
