Wedding Favor Ideas

Why should you give out favors at your wedding? After all, you’re the one who spent boatloads of money booking a venue, hiring caterers, and printing fancy, custom calligraphy invitations. Even though the only thing expected of your guests is to show up–and exercise self-control at that open bar–attending your event means guests are supporting you through one of life’s most important milestones. In fact, just showing up means a lot these days, whether it’s a kid receiving a trophy just for showing up, or a father show up to that same kid’s ballgame. Your guests deserve a little thank you for taking the time to celebrate an important day with you, even if it’s just a small token of appreciation. Here are some great wedding favor ideas to offer your guests a tangible memory of your big day:

wedding-favor-seeds

Blooms and flowers are synonymous with romance. It’s why most weddings feature numerous arrays of delicately arranged floral bouquets. I love the idea of giving out a favor that can grow, like the flower seed bombs above. All you need are seeds, organza favor wrap, and a ribbon. You could also give out seed packets or cute succulents in terra cotta planters. Some brides even give out ready-made terrariums as favors!

mason-jar-hot-cocoa-favor

With so many mason jar decoration ideas for weddings floating around, it’s no surprise that many brides opt to package favors in mason jars. The above idea makes a really cute wedding favor for a winter wedding. Any type of food item that keeps well such as powdered hot cocoa makes a perfect favor. Other ideas include cotton candy, fruit preserves, or popcorn.

burlap-favor-bags

No one can deny it: rustic is here to stay. Burlap linens are incredibly popular year-round. Whether it’s a barnyard wedding or banquet event with a rustic theme, translating this theme into an appropriate favor couldn’t be easier. The photo above is a great example. Burlap favor bags match the rustic theme perfectly. Stuff a burlap favor bag with apples or seasonal preserves for the perfect rustic chic favor.

wine-favor-bag

Wine is the absolute perfect drink at weddings–alcohol doesn’t get any more jubilant than red wine. Personalized wine bottles with custom labels have become a major wedding favor trend, and with the right packaging, I think it’s a knockout among wedding favor ideas. You could also opt for mini-bottles of wine or stoppers. Don’t drink or don’t want to encourage your guests to drink? Non-alcoholic bubbling cider is festive and fun option that will likely result in more responsible decision making.
