Last week on Tuesday Tips we talked about edible wedding favors. This week we want to focus on some other creative ways to say “THANKS!” to your special wedding guests. Pinterest.com is a wonderful place to get ideas, but don’t get too overwhelmed! Do you love DIY (do-it-yourself) and crafting or are you the type that would rather order something personalized and be done with it? A lot of brides think they can tackle the project of the wedding favors themselves. After assembling 200 or more personalized tags, you may wish you had delegated that job to someone else. Think long and hard about how much work you want to put into your favors. You could have a girls-night-in with your bridesmaids and put everything together if you do decide to DIY. Why not? It’s a great excuse to have some fun with your girls before the big day! Read on for a few creative options we love.
We love the wedding favor picture above. This couple gave favor choices–growable, flammable or edible! You can’t go wrong with a sweet jar filled with either wildflower seeds, a fragrant candle or some delectable chocolate.
If you’re having a beach themed wedding, anything with shells is always a hit. These can then be placed in their home as decor around a candle or in a display cabinet.
Add shells to a small photo frame and they can place your wedding picture in there when you send a copy in your thank you note!
Personalized wine stoppers to keep the air out of wine and the bubbly bubbly are a classy way to show your appreciation. Why not add a small bottle of wine from a local vineyard?
Are you a golf fan? Then these are the perfect favors. What a great way to show your love will last FORE-EVER. See what we did there?
Any favor looks better with great packaging! Use your wedding colors, ribbon and personalized tags to tie it all together.
Oh you know your guests want to see you kiss! Why not provide the bells for them to ring? This has a practical use for the night, as well as being something they could use for a Christmas tree ornament in the future–especially if your wedding is around Christmas! Add a cute poem on the tag like this:
May laughter and joy fill this room
as we toast the bride and groom.
Please take this little Wedding Bell…
Ring it loud and ring it well.
With each sound they will show their bliss
by sharing in a Wedding Kiss!!
If hosting your wedding in a town that has a famous eatery, candy maker or favorite haunt, share something from the region. Package your favors in a colorful container or canning jar and add a personalized tag, like the ones above. This is a great way to add some hometown flair!
Personally, we think one of the most creative favor ideas is when the couple opts to make a donation to a cause they are passionate about. Pick an organization or ministry that is important to you as a couple, then let your guests know you made a donation in their names. Give them a take-a-way with more information about the cause.
We hope these ideas got your creative juices going! Comment and share your ideas with us!
