Can’t seem to choose a “favor” to use in your wedding? There are hundreds of different types of wedding favors out there, some of which are sold in stores while others are homemade. It’s important for couples to choose a meaningful favor that guests of all ages will enjoy. If you’re still scratching your head trying to find the perfect wedding favor, keep reading for some fun ideas.
#1: Personalized Chocolate Candies
One type of wedding favor that’s bound to leave a positive impression on guests is personalized chocolate candies. Some couples fill linen bags with generic candies, but a smarter approach is to personalize them beforehand. For instance, you can personalize some M&M candies with your last name or you and your spouse’s initials. While most of these candies will be eaten by guests, some of them will likely survive, serving as a nostalgic item from your wedding.
#2: Disposable Cameras
Another fun wedding favor is disposable cameras. I know what you’re thinking — wouldn’t it cost thousands of dollars to give every guest their own disposable camera? Well, it really depends on the size of your wedding. If you have a small wedding with 50-100 people, then you might spend $750 or so on disposable cameras. The benefit in doing so, however, is that you’ll get hundreds of wonderful pictures taken from all different perspectives of your wedding.
#3: Framed Pictures
Of course, another fun wedding favor idea is a framed picture of you and your spouse. You can purchase basic 6×9 picture frames for about a buck a piece and fill them with an engagement picture. Guests are sure to appreciate this thoughtful favor.
We really can’t talk about wedding favor ideas without mentioning candles. If you’ve spent any time visiting weddings as a guest, you’ve probably come across them before. Many couples choose candles as their wedding favors because of the “fun” factor combined with the personalization. You can personalize them with you and your spouse’s name along with the date of your wedding. And when the sun begins to go down in the evening, all of your guests can light their candle.
#5: Gourmet Baked Sweets
Last but certainly not least, gourmet baked sweets are another option to consider when choosing your wedding favors. There are dozens of companies who specialize in gourmet sweets. You can fill some baggies with things like fudge, white chocolate-dipped strawberries, pralines, etc.
