One favorite wedding tradition that many couples love to do is to show their guests a little appreciation at the end of the night with a wedding favor. These keepsakes can be anything from a living plant to a specialty dessert, and they mark the occasion with something that guests can remember the special day with.
Wedding favor options really are endless, especially if you want to get creative and add a personal touch to it. When it comes to choosing wedding favors for your guests, there’s usually two options: something that they can have immediately that is a perishable, or something they can use for a long time.
Either way, guests will appreciate the gesture to offer them a little something for the end of the night. Here are some classic options for wedding favors:
1. Customized Bottle Openers
This is certainly one of the more popular wedding favors, and it’s understandable why. Bottle openers are always useful at home. Going the extra step and making it personalized is a nice touch for guests. They’ll be able to use it for years, and it will always remind them of your wedding.
2. Personalized Candles
Want to send your guests home with something pretty that smells great? Look no further than personalized mini-candles. Each candle tin can come with custom print and designs to remind your guests of the amazing time they had at your wedding.
3. Custom Shot Glasses
Who doesn’t love a great shot glass? You can order these wedding favors with literally anything on them, from your names and the wedding date to a graphic that reflects your wedding theme. Even guests who don’t drink can use a shot glass for measurements or other things. Dress them up with a nice box and bow, and you have yourself a great wedding favor!
4. Personalized M&Ms
How amazing are customized M&Ms? Nearly everyone loves them, and you can order them to have custom words or even you and your partner’s faces. Ones like these can be purchased at My M&Ms.
Succulents are becoming more and more popular as wedding favors. They’re small, relatively easy to take care of, and they add a touch of nature to any home. They also represent a new life in a new home, which goes hand-in-hand with the new marriage. Sweet, huh?
6. Personalized Jam
Depending on the number of guests you have, this can get a little pricey, but it’s an absolutely beautiful choice. Out of all of the wedding favors, this will definitely be a favorite. Treat your guests with delicious jams they can have the next morning, and many more mornings to come.
7. Custom Mints
Mints are always handy to have on you or in the car, and they are so much classier than gum. Your guests will think of your wedding each time they go for a mint in a cute little customized tin like this.
8. Cork Coasters
Giving your guests coasters as wedding favors will help them avoid ruining their coffee tables and other furniture, and will serve as a fun reminder of your wedding.
9. Custom Mason Jars
Mason jars have so many uses, which is part of the reason that makes them so great. Get these custom mason jars for your guests and fill them with whatever it is you’d like (coffee beans, chocolate-covered almonds, candy, etc.). Your guests can re-use the jars for whatever they like, including cooking, storage, and decor.
10. Personalized Sunglasses
An absolute classic wedding favor. Personalized sunglasses are particularly great for outdoor weddings (just remember to distribute them beforehand). Guests love them for photo ops as well.
Now you should have some great ideas for memorable and unique wedding favors. Your guests will appreciate and love these parting gifts, and every time they use them, (if they’re not food), they’ll remember your wedding!
