On the most important day of your life, friends and family have come to celebrate you and your new life together as a married couple! So, you’d like to thank them and show them some love for coming to be part of your big day? Your guests might not be expecting anything, yet this small gesture is a fantastic way to show gratitude and appreciation.
There are a few things to keep in mind when trying to pick a wedding favor for your guests. Things such as weather, location, and if your guests traveled far to come celebrate with you. Candy/food items might not do well in hot weather and size matters when guests are traveling.
Here are a few of our favorite wedding favor ideas that you might not have thought of:
Fun Luggage Tags. This might sound odd, yet this is one of our favorite and most creative ideas our brides have done (as shown in the picture above). If your wedding is a destination wedding, this is great way to thank your guests for traveling far to come celebrate with you! You can have these luggage tags designed to fit the theme of your wedding. Check out this lovely destination wedding that took place on Catalina Island to see another example of this idea.
Custom Flip Flops. You know your guest’s feet will probably get tired and once it’s time to hit the dance floor, people are going to want to throw those heels off. This is also a great gift to give for a beachy wedding. We recommend Favorgram for custom made wedding flip flops.
Wrapped Treats. Ok so maybe you have thought of this option before. Yet, having these cookies or treats custom made by a bakery so that the bride and grooms name is imprinted on the pastry is a unique and creative party favor. It is that simple added touch that makes a huge difference. This option is a classic that you can’t go wrong with and everyone will love!
Balancing practiciality with creativity is the key when choosing a wedding favor for your guests. You wouldn’t want to spend money on something people will just leave behind. Some of the best gifts are the ones that can be used right away like candy, or can be used over again and not tossed after the wedding is finished.
