Although wedding favors aren't a necessity, they are a wonderful way to send guests home with a memento from your special day. They are also a lovely way to thank everyone for coming and can serve double-duty and add to the overall decor when used as wedding decorations.
There are tons of wonderful items that can be used for wedding favors. Below, WhereBridesGo.com has a few great ideas to get you started!
Just about every person in the world finds an edible favor hard to resist! Just last month we dedicated an entire blog to food favors in "Wedding Guests LOVE Edible Favors - Get Creative With Them!" Deciding on what type of food is up to you, but you can find lots of different containers to package those treats in at our online wedding accessory store.
Bottle Stoppers & Openers
If you and your friends enjoy wine, and especially if you are hosting your wedding at a winery, then wine bottle toppers are an excellent favor to give away. Every time someone that attended your wedding enjoys a bottle, they will be reminded of your incredible wedding.
If you prefer bottles of beer to bottles of wine, opt for bottle openers as your wedding favors instead. You could even mix it up and do both!
While we are already on the topic of beverages, we have to mention "koozies." Canned beverages are often served at outdoor weddings so that they can easily be kept on ice. They are also convenient for receptions by a pool or on a beach where glass is not welcome due to safety reasons. You can keep your guests' hands warm and dry while keeping their drinks cold by offering personalized wedding can coolers that they can take home with them.
Another great way to remind your guests of the incredible time that they had at your wedding is to give away keychain favors. You are very likely to find one that goes wonderfully with the rest of your wedding decorations, theme, or colors and it is something that is very useful on a day-to-day basis.
You can also give your guests a daily reminder of the wedding by offering wedding favors that they can display or use in their homes. Many of these can be used as part of the decorations on the reception tables at the wedding too. As an added bonus to this, when the guests pick the favors up to take home, part of your cleanup is already done!
Like we said earlier, these wedding favor ideas will get you started but there are lots and lots more to inspire you at WhereBridesGo.com. Take a look quick look around our website and it won't be long before you have a long list of gorgeous wedding items perfect for creating a beautiful and memorable wedding day.
