Wedding season is in full swing! With warmer months being the prime time for weddings, chances are that your guests will attend a lineup of nuptials before the season is through. Stand out from the other celebrations by providing your attendees with a unique experience, including personalized favors they will enjoy and use! Here are some of our favorite wedding favor ideas.
Wedding Favor Ideas
Mason jars have emerged as a recent trend in the arts and crafts industry. And now, they are making their way into the events and culinary sectors, too. Jars make fabulous party favors because they are so versatile. Outside, these jars can be customized with decorative labels, while the inside can contain something sweet for your guests. Pun intended, these really allow you to show off your personal taste. Some ideas we love for jars: jam, lemonade powder, honey, hot cocoa sets, cookie mix and even miniature pies!
Drinks from the Newlyweds
Beverages, in water bottles and beer cans, are delicious and customizable. Drinks are great party favors because your guests can take them home for later or enjoy them during the reception. Let’s face it, every wedding guest (of age) will love you for providing free alcohol. Some ideas we love: miniature bottles of mead, liquor or wine. For dry weddings, how about gifting disposable or reusable bottles of water, ice tea and lemonade?
Labeled Goodie Bags and Boxes
Favor bags come in all shapes, sizes and materials, from self-standing paper bags to linen drawstring pouches. Boxes and Asian takeout containers are also cute options. Like mason jars, personalize the exterior and fill them with something special. Some ideas we love for goodie bags: salt water taffy, coffee beans, granola, garden seeds and a nice bar of soap. Or, let your guests decide what they what to take to-go by leaving unpackaged boxes next to your dessert table or candy bar.
CD favors are an entertaining, yet personal gift idea. Your guests can relive all of the special moments from your wedding with songs you’ve hand-picked. Make CDs unique by designing CD labels that represent your relationship and your special day. Some more CD ideas we love: unique CD sleeves, showing the song playlist and including your wedding and father-daughter dance songs.
We think it’s excellent to give your family and friends gifts they will be able to use again. For those who think candy or drinks do not leave a lasting impression, how about a giving a favor that your guests can use every day, or at least more than once? Some ideas we love: labeled playing card boxes, vases, baskets, mugs and candles.
