Even though nobody goes to a wedding for the favors, you still want to treat your guests to a thoughtful souvenir of your special day. Here are three ideas that will have you looking like a champ and your guests feeling oh so appreciated.
Travel Candles and Matches
Travel candles paired with a box of decorative matches are a lightweight and long lasting favor. With so many good-looking matchboxes on the market, you will be spoiled for choices but if personalization is the name of your game, there are plenty of
customizable options. Your guests will think of you fondly every time the sweet smell of the candle banishes the stale smell from their hotel room.
Local and Delicious
Give your guests a taste of your wedding location by gifting them something site specific. Not only is it a delicious treat (we hope), it's also a great way to give guests a feel for the area, especially if they are visiting someplace new. The favor can be as diverse as olive oil, chocolates, individually wrapped fresh baked cookies or locally pressed apple juice — as long as it is something that you love, it's fair game.
If you are throwing a small party, favors can be a little more labor intensive. A multilayered gift like a planter pot, seed packet, and plant ID stick has a lot of moving parts but guests will remember the personal touch. If you want to really go the extra mile, include a meaningful recipe that corresponds with the seed packet or a dish that is being served at the reception and you've got a gift that will keep on giving.
