PERSONALIZED WEDDING FAVOR IDEAS


Look at you! You're planning an unforgettable wedding for your closest friends and family members to enjoy. Your guests have traveled near and far and taken time out of their busy lives to witness the love you and your fiancé share. Sending your guests home with a memorable keepsake is a special and unique way to show your gratitude - but the key to handing out a favor they'll remember to take home is to offer something your guests want and actually will use and enjoy. Favors are an inexpensive way to thank your guests and a great way to showcase an element of your wedding by incorporating something meaningful that you and your fiancé enjoy.


The average cost of wedding favors varies from $3 to $10, depending on how elaborate or personalized you want to go. The cost depends on the amount being ordering and, if you're going the DIY route, the price of the materials needed. Having guest favors provides an opportunity for creativity with the gift itself and the options for arrangement. Whether you choose to have them at each person's place setting at the dinner table or have an area displayed as guests walk into the reception. There's a pretty extensive range of wedding favors to choose from - they can be food-focused, drink-focused, specific for the home, perfect for play, or even considerate of a pandemic wedding. There are a few things to consider before making your favor selection. For example, if you have opted for an outdoor venue in the middle of the summer, you may want to stay away from candy, chocolates, or anything that may melt. If most of your guests had to fly to attend your wedding, you might want to avoid glass items that won't travel well. But after all, it is your wedding, so we do recommend selecting a wedding favor that says something about you and your significant other. Opt to go with personalization, monograms, favorite items, favorite smells, things you enjoy together, etc. Your friends and family love you, so give them a little piece of you to take home. Here are some wedding favor ideas that your guests will be excited to take home with them! ​
