Giving out wedding favors, or having them waiting for guests at their table, is a great way to thank your guests for coming, and a way for them to remember the day (as if they won’t be taking enough pictures!). Here are some fun options for all types of weddings!
Maybe you met at a coffee shop, or you’re having a brunch wedding, or maybe you and your sweetheart just really love a good cup of joe. Whatever the case, having a little pouch of coffee beans or ground coffee is a sweet and fun favor. It’s especially helpful in case guests need a pick-me-up to get through the next morning!
Jelly or Jam
If you don’t have the time or means to make your own jam, not to worry! There are plenty of great small businesses or companies that make delicious and small jars of jellies and jams. You can put a sticker on the jar commemorating your day!
This unique idea is a great way to remember your big day! Having a little pouch, bag, or cup with a flower bulb in it is a way to share the colors from your wedding, and brighten up your guests home!
Especially if you and your spouse are from the same, or completely different areas, having a favor that shows off the regional flavor is a fun way to recognize either where you’re both (or one or the other) from, or where your wedding is taking place. For example, if you’re in Chicago, hand out little packs of Garrett’s popcorn, Chicago mix!
If your caterer is serving amazing dishes (we’re sure they are!) that you know people are going to want to have again, typing up little recipe cards and giving your guest little booklets or note cards of recipes is a perfect way to easily share your day.
Really, any little cookie stacked in a small container or bag is a sweet (literally) way to treat your guests! Plus they can snack while they wait for dinner, or after.
Beeswax candles are a cute gift to have at your guests’ places. If you can find them homemade from a local group, that could make them even more meaningful. Perfect for the rustic wedding!
Fill-your-own Treat Bags
If you would rather let your guests pick their take-away from your wedding, set up a candy bar filled with plenty of chocolate and fruity options. Have little bags with your date and wedding info on them, and let your guests fill their bags with their favorites!
