We love a bride who’s really dedicated to incorporating her chosen season into the wedding. One way to do that is with your guest favors. We love a great seasonal-themed favor! It really ties things together and adds to the overall feel of your event. Fall (and really winter too!) is the season where you start to break out all things cozy. For that reason, we love the idea of things like blankets or scarves, candles too! Blankets especially can be useful if you’re opting for an outdoor ceremony in the crisp fall air. We also never say no to an edible favor! Pretty much apple anything -- caramel apples, apple butter, apple ciders, cider donuts, etc. -- is usually a fall crowd pleaser. We also love things like honeys, maple syrup, or even a nice little olive oil set. Individual s’mores kits are fun, too! If you’re looking for something non-edible, customized coffee mugs are also a fun idea and token to send your guests home with. After all, who isn’t snuggling up with a nice warm mug of cocoa this time of year?
While we know that the wedding day is all about you, we also like to make our guests feel appreciated seeing as they’re there to celebrate you, too! There are so many simple little touches you can add to make your guests feel the love and know that you want them to really enjoy the celebrations. After all, what’s a party if you can’t all enjoy it?!
Slippers or Flip Flops
Ladies, we all know that we try to always look our best when we get the chance to dress up for big events. Usually that involves wearing pretty, but not so comfortable, heels. That’s why we love when couples provide a bin filled with flip flops or slippers for their girlfriends to slip into before dancing the night away! Buying in bulk is key and you would be surprised at how cheap you can get these for. It’s also a nice little momento for them to take home and think of you every time they wear them.
Bathroom Emergency Kit
It’s a commonly known fact that little blips and emergencies pop up throughout events. Luckily, we’re always prepared! We love to put together a little emergency kit in the ladies room for any of said blips. Things like hairspray, hair ties, bobby pins, hair brush, tampons, floss, gum, Advil, deodorant, etc. Not much can fit in those little clutches us girls tend to carry around, so your guests will really appreciate the thought!
Your guests took the time to come celebrate your marriage, so it’s nice to return the favor with a small little token to remember the day by. This doesn’t need to be anything expensive or extravagant. If you’re looking for some ideas, make sure to check out our post for some ideas your guests are sure to love!
Sometimes, people party a little too hard at weddings. Let’s be honest, it’s pretty common. Hangover kits are a nice little something to send your guests off with, or have readily available at a post-wedding brunch. If you’re on a tighter budget and can’t swing too many extra, hangover kits can make a great favor. Two birds, one stone!
Choosing a wedding favor to give out to your lovely guests may seem a bit daunting. You already have the pressure of planning a wedding, but now you need to think of a sweet handout for every single attendee? It’s certainly a lot. But no worries, choosing a wedding favor doesn’t have to be that stressful! We’ve gathered a bunch of options for you to take inspiration from. The gifts can be as small or large as you wish them to be. Something small and easy like a little bag of your favorite candy along with a little bag of your partner’s favorite too, a small plant or succulent, or even a nip for everyone who’s of age! You can also do a handout that’s a little more personal, such as a soundtrack to your wedding, items personalized with the guest’s name, or even a funny guide on how to stay awake during a wedding ceremony. No matter what you choose to do, your guests will love it! Here’s some more inspiration for you to look at and help your creativity flow.
