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….
Make homemade soaps with Chrysanthemum flowers and violet fragrance as wedding favors. You could even personalize the soaps with a type of flower that will be used at the wedding, and color the soap in the wedding colors.
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!
