So you've locked down the caterer, venue, dress and florist and you're ready for the big day countdown to finally arrive. However, as your guest list starts filling up, it may be time to think about the end of the reception and how you want to express your gratitude to all your friends and family for celebrating the best day of your life with you!
Wedding favors can help bring your theme to life and show your guests you really care. The best wedding favors often show the couple's personality or a cause they are passionate about. Check out some of our favorite wedding favors below to start getting the wheels turning on what fits just perfect with you and your better half.
Luggage Tags for the Travel-Loving Couple
Inspire your guest with a touch of jet-setting motivation with this adorable, customized luggage tag. Whether your destination is at home in your backyard or across the country in a vineyard, give your guests a sense of adventure they can't pass up. A great way to add your sense of wanderlust into a gift that allows friends and family to join in on more memories than one.
Plant a Flower or Tree
Looking to give back to the environment that poses as a beautiful backdrop for your wedding photos? Have your guests plant a flower or tree in a nearby park or in their own backyard! Create "growing memories" with your guests and help bring new life to the Earth. We love this idea for any couple who feels passionate about the environment or who wants to make a difference in every aspect of their life (including their big day!). Looking to give back in more ways than just a wedding favor? Check out some alternative registries for more ways to give back!
Cookie Mix for the Dessert Lover
Incorporate one of you and your sig other's favorite desserts and share the recipe with your guests! Keep in mind the size of the recipe (small batch, please!) and the time of when you make the baggies (we recommend two weeks before the big day). The addition of a mini-spatula or cookie cutter will make the gift even more adorable. Plus, adding your favorite recipe will make guests remember your wedding day for years to come.
Homemade Candles for the Romantics
Looking to gift something small and intimate? Look no further than homemade candles! This will allow your guests to capture your personality (and favorite scent) with a take home gift. Wondering if you should just buy candles instead of burning yourself on hot wax? No worries, here is six simple steps on how to DIY your candle favors (no burns included).
Something Local for the Destination Wedding
Take a piece of you with you wherever you are traveling to say "I Do." Create a DIY jar full of something sweet to remind your guests of your hometown roots while in a new location. Decide what a staple product of your hometown might be to remind your guests that no matter how far you travel you always have home in your heart.
