So you’re looking for great wedding favor ideas, but you can’t look at one more miniature picture frame, scented candle or little candy baggie as your options. You want something fun! Something unique, something your guests will always remember you by. Luckily, as weddings are becoming more and more unique and personalized, the favors are too! Here are just a few out of the box ideas for your big day:
Personalized Shot Glasses – That’s right, you heard us. Shot glasses are the perfect wedding favor because they’re small enough to fit in a purse or pocket and your guests can even start using them at the reception! Instead of having your names printed on the glasses, think of something that can remind them of your big day without being too personal. Maybe engrave something funny or corny, like “shot through the heart” with a cupid, or “shotgun wedding” if your family can take the joke lightly. Personalized glasses don’t necessarily have to mean engraved, they can just be something personal to you and your partner. Maybe the two families are divided between the Greenbay Packers and New England Patriots, so you can get shot glasses of each kind, and have them displayed on a table on opposite sides.
Wedding Recovery Kit – If your guests came from out of town, or if you had a rough or lengthy wedding, you can put together a “recovery pack” as a favor. Maybe include a packet of aspirin for the next morning, a bottle of personalized water, a disposable heat pack or foot lotion for the night of dancing, maybe even a small bottle of aloe if you had a long beach weekend. You can get as creative as you’d like, and you can rest assured that your guests will appreciate it!
Comfy Socks – This idea may sound a bit off the wall, but your guests will likely be dancing the night away at your reception—in their uncomfortable ceremony attire and shoes. Offering a pair of non-slip comfy socks for your guests can be a great favor; they can get some use out of the gift immediately and they will always remember your big day when they wear them again.
Decorative Favors – People love useful items. Wedding favors have gotten a bad reputation for being useless or just silly trinkets that get lost within the week. Your favors can be whatever you want them to be. If you’ve decorated the tables with beautiful vintage vases, boxes or platters, offer your guests the decorations as their take home gift. Some of your guests may have been admiring your centerpieces or asking where they could find something like that. Or, if the items were costly or remind you of specific bridal party members, let them take them as their wedding party gifts. This is the perfect way to get your guests something they will use and enjoy for years, and it also leaves you empty-handed for less clean up and storage.
