I wish I’d been married in the days of Pinterest; I would have had SO MUCH FUN planning my wedding. The other day, I was thinking about what would make a great wedding favor. I love practical items that are consumable (edibles! soaps! etc.!) or useful.
Think about who your average guest is:
- Are they families with young kids at home? Give something for them to take home to their kids
- Is everyone traveling? Get a smaller item that can fit in their bags.
- Are they families with kids attending? Bring something kid focused like candy.
- Is everyone in their early 20s? Alcohol is a great gift!
At a wedding with all older married couples, household items like wine bottle openers or a pepper grinder might not make sense. They likely already have a drawer full of random kitchen items.
Here are some ideas that I thought of off the top of my head….
Easy Wedding Favor Ideas
- Herbs or flowers in a planter
- Photo booth
- Chocolate bars
- Mini liquor or wine bottles
- Containers for/with a slice of cake or cupcake to go
- Sugar cookie
- Homemade items: jelly, jam, wine, spices, extract, honey with a honey dipper
- Chocolate covered cherries
- Flip flops for people to use at reception
- Donut table
- Candy table
- Make a donation in honor of each guest and leave a note regarding it on the table.
- Personalized glasses for use at the reception (if your venue allows)
- Small container of coffee.
- Medicine kit for the morning after hangovers
- Photo frame
- To mail later: Professional photo of bride and groom with the guest and their family. You’ll need to get the photographer on board for this one.
- Bath bombs or other bath supplies
- Soaps or felted soap
- Luggage tags
- Unique kitchen items: ie. We love our strawberry corer and our pineapple corer

We gave out little bottle stops and bleh. I was disappointed when they came in because I didn’t think they were very high quality considering the cost. My mother in law and sister and law made beautiful planters for the table with herbs that they gave to guests. THOSE were awesome and doubled as a florist item! Leave me a comment with your FAVORITE wedding favor you’ve received at a wedding!
