Functional and Creative Wedding Favors
This post has been around since early 2015 and still is a huge hit on Pinterest. How many times have you been to a wedding where you were left wondering what to do with a wedding favor after the party is over? More often than not, traditional wedding favors get forgotten in a drawer, or tossed out as soon as the guest get home. Save your guests the guilt trip of disposing of an unwanted favor, and use your wedding as an opportunity to give your friends and family a gift they actually WANT!
Wedding favors do not have to be dull, generic, or downright useless! Our favorite ideas involve utilizing local products, gifts that reflect the theme of the wedding or location, or showcase the personality of the bride and groom! Read on to see some new and creative ideas to inspire you!
Sunglasses as a Wedding Favor Idea
Sunglasses make a functional, fun, and inexpensive favor idea for an outdoor wedding! We love this idea From Tip Junkie for a fun, summer or beach wedding! Get creative. If you have the funds, offer designer sunglasses your guests will keep for a lifetime. On a smaller budget, engrave your names and date on the side. It will be a great conversation topic at the pool or beach.
Encourage your guests to stay late and enjoy the party with these thoughtful “Hangover Kits“! These are an easy and inexpensive DIY favor. Consider including items like bottled water, advil, earplugs, sleep masks, and alka seltzer.
Consider buying local! Better yet, include consumable items in your gifts to your guests. Edible favors are the best way to ensure your guests will actually use and enjoy your favors. Wedding 101 can help you put together beautiful favors or hotel gift bags utilizing local products! Contact us for more information or stop by the studio to see some examples!
