When it comes to remembering your wedding, your photos will tell the story. But often, long after the night is over, your guests will never see the photos you made or the videos you shot. That’s what wedding favors are for – to remind your guests of your special night and to say ‘thank you for being a part of our special day’. You can be as creative, unique, economical, or extravagant as you would like with your favors, but here are a few budget friendly options that will give you some great ideas to start with:
Let your guests take the party home with them! Burn a CD for each guest including favorite songs of the bride and groom, as well as any songs that will be played at the wedding. Whenever your friends listen to their personalized CD, it will take them back to that great night and remind them of the fun they had at your wedding!
Anytime your friends want to keep their drink cold, they’ll be reminded of your wedding! A koozie is a fun and inexpensive favor that will be used by all guests. There are tons of different shapes, sizes, and colors to choose from, and can be personalized to say whatever best sums up your great night!
3. Candy / Chocolate
We all know you can never go wrong with sweets. There are thousands of options out there of different delicious candies and chocolates. Pick out small, cute bags or boxes and fill them with different types of candy. Your guests will still be enjoying the party all the way home!
4. Brownie /Cake Mix
If you want to give something you know your guests will use and love, pick out your favorite type of cake or brownie. Fill up a pouch with enough of the powder mix so that your guests can make their own batch at home! Attach a note to each baggie with baking directions, and your friends will be thanking you for weeks, and asking where you got the amazing recipe!
Magnets are another easy but personal gift to give your guests to show your appreciation. They are not only useful to all, but a keepsake from your wedding will be put up in your friend’s homes for lasting memories!
6. Flavored Popcorn
Another unique and delicious favor idea is flavored popcorn. There are a wide variety of popcorn flavors out there, and you can’t go wrong with any! Pick out your favorites and combine them for your guests to munch on and thank you for days!
7. Bottle Opener
A more sophisticated favor idea would be a personalized bottle opener for each guest. They may be small, but will be very often used by your friends! Anytime they open a wine bottle, they’ll be reminded of their newlywed friends and the great night they spent at your wedding.
Scented candles are great for any home, and can act as a great party favor! There are a huge variety of styles, sizes, colors, and scents to choose from. So pick some that work the best with your wedding theme! You can do the same candle or candles for each guest, or mix it up.
