In Good Favor

Share:

You’ve always been told that giving feels just as good as receiving. And since you’ve received so much since you announced your engagement, favors are the perfect way to show your appreciation toward the guests who will share your special day.

Contrary to popular belief, a wedding favor doesn’t have to be expensive to be enjoyed. But the one thing it should be is symbolic. So let your imagination go wild for an added personal touch that your guests will appreciate.

A wedding favor can be almost anything from traditional to trendy. The best way to select a favor that is right for your wedding is to determine your budget, number of guests, your theme and/or style and what you might enjoy receiving yourself. Get inspired with this round-up of ideas:

If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that everyone loves a food favor. Whether you sprinkle individually wrapped chocolates on the table, hand them a midnight snack as they leave, or present them with a jar filled with mints or honey, your guests will be so grateful to have a little something to munch on.

Ideas: almonds; jelly beans; cookies (especially homemade); truffles; mini cupcakes; jars of jam or honey.

If you want to give your guests something a little more personal that they’ll be able to look at forever and remember the fun they had at your wedding, consider getting something customized with your names and wedding date or a cute saying!

Ideas: small bottles of champagne or wine; packets of coffee or tea; can coozies; poker chips; matchbooks; bottle openers; pens.

Unique

We admit, not all of these favor ideas are the most original. In fact, you may have even seen some at weddings you attended recently. If you want to present your guests with a more creative and unique gift, it may take some more time and effort, but will definitely be worth it.

Ideas: lottery tickets; holiday ornaments; CDs of your wedding-day music or favorite tunes; luggage tags; small potted herbs or a packet of seeds to plant; sparklers; mini soaps; drink coasters.

 

Whether you choose from one of these popular gifts or come up with your own, your guests will appreciate the thought you put into your favors as well as the actual gift you’ve given them. It’s something that they will remember warmly and can enjoy for months –maybe even years – to come!
