Are you and your significant other planning to give a little take-home treat to your wedding guests? Choosing “party favors” can be both fun and challenging. There are endless options, and we here at Wedgewood Weddings have picked up on some of the latest reception trends to help you get inspired!
For the Foodies:
Favors that tickle the taste buds are becoming quite popular. You can now find and personalize mini versions of organic honey, exotic coffee beans, flavored olive oil or bottled after-dinner liquors (like Limoncello). Your guests will remember your day when they partake of your little treat!
For the Philanthropists:
Choose to give back on your big day by making donations in honor of your guests to your favorite charitable organization. Making a special offering, even if it is only a dollar per guest, will add up in the end and truly make an impact. Some charities, like the Make-A-Wish Foundation, have online stores where you can purchase bulk merchandise and a portion of the proceeds will go back to the organization. In addition, websites like https://www.idofoundation.org allow you to set up a charitable gift registry, where in place of wedding gifts, your guests can make their own donations to a charity of their choice!
For the Practical:
Why not choose to present your guests something they’ll actually get some use out of? Give a gift that will give back, like succulent plants or customized packages of flower seeds. You can find gifts like this on websites like Etsy or by visiting your local florist/nursery to see if you can purchase plants in bulk.
For the Fun-Lovers:
Couples who want to give their guests a giggle can put together creative gifts like hangover kits equipped with mouthwash, over-the-counter headache medication and a toothbrush. For those musically-inclined couples, compile a mixtape with some of your favorite songs for all of your guests, and make sure to throw in your wedding song!
There are no guidelines for choosing amazing favors, just select something that will cause your guests to remember your amazing day in a meaningful way.
