When it comes to the traditional selection of wedding favors out there, it can be easy to get something too cheesy or unoriginal. It is important when choosing wedding favors to
- pick something that will bring your guests a pleasant memory of your special day,
- pick something they aren’t just going to throw away, and
- pick something elegant that exudes class.
Here are six wedding favors that embody all of those qualities.
Eat, Drink, & Be Married
Personalized wine glasses, champagne flutes, and beer glasses – there’s a container to satisfy every guest! You can get inexpensive personalized beverage glasses at Cheap Favor Shop. This gift is certainly useful and when your guests see the elegant inscription, they’ll have lovely memories to match for years to come.
Spread the Joy
What is more adorable than a tiny jam or honey jar? With a personalized sticker on it with a phrase along the lines of “Spread the Love” or “Meant to Bee,” it’s impossible not to smile at these little guys. Whether your guests use it to spread some jam on their toast the next morning or to have a little honey with their tea, these cuties will give them sweet memories of attending your elegant affair.
Love Starting to Grow
If you don’t want to pay extra of personalization, a super simple gift is tiny succulents or bags of seeds. You can find small, two-inch assorted succulents in sets of twenty at Urban Outfitters. Or, you can go to Home Depot to get an assortment of flower seeds, put them in separate envelopes, and write something such as “Let Love Grow” on the outside. This would be a great task for a bridesmaid!
Brew up a Good Time
Similar to the seeds idea, you could also have a bridesmaid pick up a big pack of coffee beans at Costco, separate them into envelopes (enough for one cup of coffee each), and write something to the effect of “Love is Brewing” on the outside. This wedding favor is a useful and unique gift for your adoring guests!
A Novel Idea
As an extremely cost-effective wedding favor, have everybody in your wedding party donate any books they’re no longer reading. Each guest can grab a book on their way out. If you don’t end up with enough books, have a member or two of the wedding party scout used books at dollar bookstores or on Amazon. On top of the book library, you could have a banner letting guests know to grab one on their way out maybe saying something like “Our Chapter is Just Beginning.” For the couple who is into reading, or for a smaller budget wedding, a book library is a lovely wedding favor.
Infused with Love
Infused olive oil is a gift everyone can use. All you need is some tiny, one to two-inch glass containers, some fresh herbs, and some olive oil. Put the oil in the containers with the herbs and viola! An elegant wedding favor is born.
There are six wedding favors that are useful, elegant, and unique! Each one can also be personalized or tweaked to fit the theme of your wedding. No matter what your guests leave with, their memories of your special day are sure to be sweet.
