Wedding Favors Your Guests Will Actually Enjoy
There are endless options for what favors to give your guests, but how do you choose? Do you want to give a more sentimental or practical favor? A great favor doesn’t have to be expensive or over the top, rather something thoughtful or useful is greatly appreciated. Here are a few favorite favors our experienced wedding photographers have seen!
There is something charming about offering a Metro Detroit local specialty as a gift to your guests – it’s like they get to take a little piece of your town and wedding with them. You can always check local stores or the farmers market to see if there are any potential gifts that could work for you. Think cheeses, cherries, pickles, honey, hot sauce, soaps, honey, candles or chocolates. It’s always fun to support local businesses and share local favorites.
Sometimes a favor can be something really fun that is unexpected. This is a perfect time to include the special and unique sides of you as a couple, such as giving a bottle of your favorite wine with a custom label with an engagement photo.
A useful wedding favor is practical, but it doesn’t have to be boring. A shot glass, set of wine glasses, wine and beer bottle opener or drink koozie are great ideas for useful wedding favors. Practical is always appreciated.
A sprig of a pine tree, a cutting of another type of plant or a potted herb that can grow is something that people can take home and watch grow over time is a thoughtful favor. Have a collection of plants on each table that could serve as a really fun and unique favor.
There are so many delicious and creative ways to give away something sweet as a favor. You could do a candy and dessert bar or table and provide little take out containers or cute bags. Individually wrapped treats at the guests tables are also a great option. These sweet favors can double as a snack for their drive home, which will definitely be appreciated.
Give each guest a short note with a picture on it thanking them for coming or a picture frame they can add one of their favorite photos of the evening to later. You can give a mass note or personalized and handwritten if you are having a smaller wedding.
