Think twice before you decide to give away clunky, useless knickknacks as wedding favors to the people who have set aside precious time to travel and attend your special day. Instead, dole out indispensable items your wedding guests would love to take home with them. Here are five great wedding favors to consider.
Jams or Preserves in Vintage-Looking Jars
DIY edible wedding favors are popular because they exude the warmth of home, not to mention being incredibly wholesome and delicious. So, consider offering your wedding guests with DIY fruit jams or preserves. Present these wedding favors in charming vintage-looking jars prettily adorned with twine and a piece of fabric.
Give away healthy wedding favors sourced from a local organic beekeeping farm. Store the sweet golden concoction in cute bottles with cork stoppers. Then attach a quirky-looking label.
Portable Water Bottles
Your guests would be thrilled to take home sleek water bottles. These wedding favors are lightweight and usable. You can even monogram them or stylishly match with your wedding color palette.
Reusable Canvas Tote Bags
Add a touch of “green” to your special day by giving away utilitarian and stylish items your guests can use to hold their groceries, nixing the need for plastic bags. Sturdy canvas tote bags can also serve as easy-to-wash carry-alls.
Buy plain and roomy canvas tote bags in bulk, and then have them printed with your choice of design or letterings. If you’re up to the task, you can tie-dye them to match your color scheme.
Blankets or Towels
Choose blankets or towels whose colors and designs match your wedding theme and color scheme. Tie or fold them to resemble flowers or cakes. You can easily search for instructions on how to make towel cakes, which double as fantastic wedding décor. Cozy blankets, in particular, also make for great favors for a winter wedding.
