Wedding Favors Your Guests Will Love!

In the midst of wedding planning, with the many decisions brides and grooms face regarding ceremony décor, table settings, dinner and dessert options, and much, much more, it’s often easy to forget one small, but fun, detail: wedding favors!

Whether you’d rather keep it simple and sweet or step it up a notch with unique customized creations, we have plenty of wedding favor ideas to fit your preference and budget!

Cookies are a great idea for a wedding favor. Guests can nibble them there and then or save them as a memory. While the ones shown here are via Etsy, it's also possible to DIY cookie wedding favors or ask a friend with baking skills.

Custom-wrapped treats 

These are a sweet and tasty way to send guests home post-reception. After hours of dancing and celebrating, your guests are bound to appreciate the sugar rush! An awesome couple who celebrated at our Indian Hills venue decided to offer guests a choice of three photos from significant moments in their romantic adventure.

These are a natural way to encourage guests to continue watching your love grow even after the famous “I do’s.” Make it unique with distinctive containers that can be treasured in your guests’ homes for years to come. For out-of-town guests who maybe can't travel easily with a live plant, a custom packet of seed for your favorite flowers is a lovely thought.


custom KOOZIE

For those brew-sipping brides or grooms, a custom koozie is a playful gift that your guests can use at future celebrations and holidays. Add a personal touch with a monogram and the date of your special day.

Personalized Totes

We all need more reusable grocery bags nowadays and a tote favor is a great idea! Go all out with woven beach totes for your wedding party or packable cotton totes for all your guests.

Coffee & Tea

If you're a foodie and really know your Robusta from your Liberica, then blending coffee and providing a small pouch as a wedding favor is an inspired idea. Chances are that your guests will appreciate an outstanding brew the morning after. 

For Tea-bellies (we heard this friendly term in England and love it), you can personalize tea sachets with your wedding details. Jasmine, Green, Peppermint and Earl or Lady Grey are solid choices. Or, if you want to push the boat out, go for a floral tea and present it as a gorgeous keepsake.

Personalized, reusable coffee cups are a wonderful idea if you plan to set out a cute coffee station so guests can help themselves as the party winds down. This is also an innovative idea for guests to grab a hot drink to take with them on the journey home.

Sweeten up your guests with honey-stick wedding favors. These are lovely on their own or paired with tea of coffee favors.

Keepsake Moments

Share a memory of what brought you together. If you said yes on a gorgeous beach, then giving each guest a pretty keepsake of your favorite moment is delightful and sure to be treasured for years to come.

Keep the love aflame

Personalized candles are a really great idea.  Choose a scent that you love or that reminds you of a great memory - birthday cake, spruce or sage are great options.
