Here are 7 inspiring favor ideas to help you get creative with your own gracious gifts.
Match Don’t Mix
Whatever your wedding favors may be, pick packaging that matches and coordinates with your wedding colors — and your table decor. Visit a neighborhood fabric store for ribbons to match your wedding-day palette (if you have one, bring along a swatch of your table linens) and personalize each favor with a monogrammed sticker or unique favor label.
Go for Double-duty Favors
Make your favors and your escort cards one in the same. From lollipops to Christmas ornaments, tag your favors with each guest’s name and table number and place them on the escort table. Other escort card, favor pair-ups: apples with tags tied to the stem; luggage tags with table numbers tucked inside; and miniature wine bottles with table number and name labels.
Give One Per Couple
If you wish to give more expensive, high-end favors but need to find a way to skim the fat, give one gift per couple by placing the favor between their two dinner plates, and tagging it with the couple’s names. For your single friends, stick with one gift per person. Great gifts for pairs: domino game sets, potted orchids, and bottles of gourmet olive oil.
Try DIY Favors
Perfect for the budget-pressed couple, and the crafty ones alike, consider making your favors. A few ideas: homemade jam in jars packaged with fabric and tied off with raffia; make homemade fudge and cut it up into bite-sized pieces; or give out sugar cookies, iced with your monogram. Keep in mind that DIY projects take time and energy to carry through. So if you decide to go for this option, get your closest friends and family on board with you to help — and have fun with it!
