On your wedding day, do your guests a favor by sending them home with a gift that is truly unique and exciting. Wedding favors are a great way to offer guests a small token of your appreciation and send them off with a souvenir from your big day. Here are some of our favor favorites:
Whether you’re getting married in your hometown or in a land far, far away, let your guests in on why you love this location. Share with them a bit of local charm through favors that represent what the city is known for. Getting married in New Orleans? Bag up some famous beignets as a take-home dessert. Seaside wedding? Saltwater taffy, of course. Did you and your hubby meet at the local coffee shop? Perk up your guests with a bag of your favorite house-made blend. If you’re not sure what your city is known for, contact the local visitors’ center for some ideas.
Everything Looks Cute in a Jar
A fun and exciting twist on favor packaging is a mason jar. You can put just about anything
in them and they’re easily portable for your guests. For a sweet tooth, layer cake and frosting in the jar and attach a cute spoon with ribbon, or fill it with your favorite small candies, like M&M’s matching your wedding colors. (You can order those here.) On the savory side, fill jars with homemade pickles, peppers, or olives. For a non-food option, pamper guests with a homemade salt scrub, bubble bath or lotion.
Let your guests help your love grow. Giving plants is a great way to go green and give your guests an interactive gift that will remind them of you every time they bloom. Send home packets of your favorite flower seeds, herbs or even veggies. Complete the gift by packaging them in small, decorated pots. If you lack a green thumb, an easy option is a succulent. They require little care and are often sold in mini-sizes, perfect for gift giving.
Drinks on Us
After the birdseed is thrown, keep the party going for your guests by sending them home with your favorite beverages. His and Her pairings are a great way to show off the couples’ personality. Tie together a bottle of his favorite beer and a mini of her favorite wine, or his dark roast coffee with her Earl Grey tea. Make it a set by including a glass or mug in the gift. Hot cocoa mixes, complete with all the fixins, are sure to please the little ones!
