Creative Wedding Favors
Thanking your guests for sharing in your special day shouldn't be stressful. Find a favor that's memorable and suits your personality.
Saplings like these from Randy Youngblood Nursery are great favors for nature-inspired nuptials.
For a fun-loving couple, personalized drink coozies are a handy and festive.
A nod to old-fashioned general stores, rock candy is a sweet favor for your guests to enjoy.
Gift bags are a great way to introduce guests to what your wedding location has to offer. This couple filled baskets with local treats of root beer, peanuts, Chesapeake Bay crab chips, and apple candy for their Virginia wedding.
Handing out your favorite food as a favor, like these cute bags of kettle corn, is a great way to personalize your wedding day.
Use your favors as a chance to represent your home towns or states. Put together a package of a few small tokens from home for your guests to enjoy.
Becca Knuth and Melissa Porter of Asheville Event Company were inspired by the rustic charm of the Great Smoky Mountains in Asheville, North Carolina for this welcome basket. Inside teh upcycled wine crate is a tartan camp blanket, a nubby wooden candle, a jar of honey and beer from a local microbrew as well as a hiking trail map and tickets to Bitmore Estate.
Calder Clark Designs effortlessly merged the hip with the historic in this welcome basket. A Piggly Wiggly notepad right alongside artisanal cocktail tonic and a brass belt buckle that doubles as a bottle opener are mixed in with other local goodies inside a sweetgrass basket handmade in the Gullah communities of the Lowcountry.
Ginny Westphal and Beth Ludlum Mabey of Pinnacle Events created a welcome basket that puts revelry front and center with festive flourishes like a jazz album, a split of Champagne, and an eleborate Mardi Gras mask. The touches of gold and silver reflect the Big Easy's patented style—setting the perfect tone for a glitzy wedding celebration.
Maria Cooke and Kelly Seizert of Ritzy Bee Events created this basket with inspiration from the elegant, understated style that is the signature of our nation's capital. Prettily packaged resfrehments—all made in D.C. and surrounding Virginia cities—are nestled into a sturdy monogrammed tote bag and accompanied by a D.C. welcome booklet designed by Virginia stationer SIMPLESONG.
