Wedding favors are a small piece of your ceremony that the guests get to take home with them. After the wedding when they see the favor in their homes, they remember the great time they had celebrating your relationship. However, because a favor goes to each guest, this could be a point where the cost of your wedding can increase quickly. There are a plethora of wedding favors that you can gift your guests that are adorable and memorable while still keeping your budget in mind.

If your wedding has a theme, a great way to extend that theme is through your wedding favors. This can be something as simple as the little baggies you put the favor in or something as elaborate as the favor itself. The great thing about wedding favors is that they can be as much or as little as you want them to be. Your theme could also be something much broader such as love or relationships. Here, you can include many things in your favor such as a small plant or candle.

Useful Favors

Useful favors can also go well with a theme. For example, if you are a couple who loves to travel, you could give your guests a suitcase tag with a cute quote about an adventure. These favors could also go with your theme by incorporating theme colors. You could give out things such as koozies for drinks or a magnet. You want to give out something that is generic enough that it will appeal to everyone and is something that they want to use in their everyday lives. Some other items here include water bottles, a tote bag, or a bottle opener.

We all want to make sure our guests feel included in our wedding ceremony. A great favor to give out is something that they can use later in the ceremony or at the reception. Here, the timing is important. If you want guests to participate at the beginning of the reception, you should give them the favor during the cocktail hour. Some favors to include here are things like bubbles or sparklers.

You can’t go wrong by giving your guests a sweet treat. You can give out your favorite candy or a combination of candy that describes you as a couple. A cute way to customize edible favors is by using customizable M&Ms. However, when deciding to give your guests an edible favor, it’s important to have a couple favors that are another option should any of your guests have allergies to food. Some other options here are donuts, a s’mores pack, or a jar of jam.

Wedding favors are meant to be fun and meaningful. This is your opportunity to give your guests something to remember the day by. You can also use a favor to thank them for spending this important day with you. It’s important to put some thought into the favor you are giving to your guests as it would be unfortunate for them to throw away.
