Guest favors are a fun way to say 'Thank You' to your family + friends for coming to celebrate your newly married relationship status, so it's ideal that these favors would be a true reflection of the two of you and a token of your wedding wishes. Your choice of guest favor could include a frame for their photo booth pictures, a midnight snack for them to enjoy on the ride home, or even something for them to have, hold, and maybe even keep their reception drink cold. No matter your style, it's fair to say that favors come in all shapes and sizes; from hankys to heartfelt, scrumptious to savory, to eco-friendly and everything in between! Your guest gifts are often one of the most remembered details, yet one of the most abandoned items as well. So to avoid having any forgotten gifts, here are some of our favorite favors that your guests will be oh-so-happy to find waiting for them at their seats..
Late Night Snacks ::
Who wouldn't love leaving with something sweet for a midnight snack? If you're from the South then you know that there isn't anything better than homemade jam and fresh honey on your biscuit for breakfast. Cookies, donuts, and Moonpies have also become favor favorites as well. From secret family recipes to custom made labels, scrumptious snacks like these will forever be a great favor option. And if you package it up into an adorable late night feast or early morning nosh back at the hotel room, well that food favor gets infinitely better.
It's no secret that wedding guests go crazy for koozies! These simply understated yet cusomtizable drink accessories are great not only for your wedding day, but also for years to come as guests grab these and reminisce on the day you said "I Do!"
Marriage + Mules ::
One of my all time favorite cocktails is a Moscow Mule, so when I saw that copper mule glasses we're trending as guest favors, I immediately fell in love with the idea! These mugs look pretty styled on the tabletop and are the perfect pop of metallic that you were looking for. And you won't have to worry about guests leaving these favors behind, as they'll be sure to grab their glass before they go!
Light Up For Love ::
Matches have always been an easy and fun guest favor, and now with customizable options, they're hotter than ever! Portable and personalized, these firey favors are ideal for pairing with candles, sparklers, and even cigars! 'Cigar Bars' have been recently styled for outdoor reception options, on our open air cocktail patio, and for the sparkler send off. This is quickly becoming a southern gentleman's go-to for guest favors!
Tea for Two ::
Everyone loves a reason to have a glass of tea, especially in the south! A personalized bag of your favorite tea blend is a great way to make your favor last past the ride home. You'll know that one day soon you'll be bringing a smile to your guests face, as well as a delicious cup of lovely wedding day memories!
Giving Back ::
This is easily one of our favorite ideas for guest favors, and we hope that this is a trend that never ends! I mean look at our list above, we obviously love wedding favors like chocolates and scented candles as much as the next person, but let's face it, making a charitable donation instead can be even more gracious and meaningful. On a day in which you will be showered with so much love, attention, and gifts, it will do your hearts good to give a little back. Your guests will most certainly be impressed with such a show of good taste!
