Not all wedding favors are created equal. Some are cute, some are cheeky, some are tasty, and some are downright tacky! The key to a great wedding favor is to make it both personal and relevant to your wedding—and, of course, to pick something your guests will actually enjoy.
Some more rules of favor giving: 1) Make it pretty. If it’snot already in a pretty package, it’s up to you (or your wedding planner!) to make sure it is presented in a way that seems intentional and put-together (something haphazard or sloppy). 2) EVERYONE enjoys food. Period. And drinks. So any favors that have something to do with either of these will most likely be a hit. 3) Call us crazy, but if you really want your guests to hang onto the favors, (unless it’s something that IS food related that will either be consumed or thrown away when it’s gone) don’t brandish it with your name and/or wedding date. Think about it: would you rather have a cozy throw or scarf that doesn’t say anything or one that is monogrammed with someone else’s initials and wedding date? It’s your day, but give your guests something they’ll actually enjoy!
As the snow falls and the temperatures drop, we say keep it seasonal, too, and treat your guests to one of these winter wedding favors,sure to be crowd-pleasers.
A little hair of the dog never hurt anyone, especially a hungover guest who barely makes their flight home! Buy these cute cocktail kits (we obviously suggest a hot toddy kit for winter!), or put together your own little kits—with all the ingredients your guests need to recreate a warm cocktail on the flight home. Bonus points for an insert with ingredients and recipe so they can recreate!
There’s nothing more fun than a cracker—and they’re so apropos for winter! Put them on your guests plates for a fun surprise when they sit down for dinner. We love these copper, and white ones from World Market,but they’re easy to DIY, too! This version contains a hat, joke and a surprise gift!
If you have a fun, warm, winter-appropriate signature cocktail you’re dying to serve at your wedding, serve them in special mugs that your guests can keep after the wedding as their favor!
Sure, socks may not seem like the sexiest of wedding favors,but your guests will thank you when they’re traveling home and their feet are frozen on the plane.
