5 Great Wedding Favor Ideas

Dec 11, 2007
1. Fill boxes with your favorite cookies or candies, M&M's now has monogrammed candies in your wedding colors. You can anything from a favorite saying to your names or initials on the candies. Adorn the boxes with colorful silk flowers (most likely the flower that is carried throughout the theme of the wedding). You can also carry the color theme in your favors by wrapping your boxes in pretty ribbon to match. You can forget the flowers and ribbons and simply close the box and seal it with a monogrammed sticker. Very elegant.

2. Give each guest or couple a compilation of you and your fiancÚs favorite music- on a CD with a personalized cover. If you are not sure of what song, how about tunes that where popular when you first met and/or while you where dating or maybe a soundtrack from the first movie you went to see together or the first concert you both attended. If you each have your own band or group you enjoy you can put your favorite group on side A and his on side B. This will give your guest a nice variety. What ever you choose your guest can enjoy the music long after the wedding is over.

3. Bulbs or seeds make a great favor to give guest. The state flower, your favorite perennial or the theme flower in the wedding can be given in a packet of seeds or a bulb attached with a personal note from the bride and groom. You can place the packet of seeds or bulb in a beautifully decorated pot. Small plants such as a bonsai wrapped in pretty colored ribbon are also very special.

4. Your favorite book of poems or writings by a much love author makes a great favor. A book about the city or state the wedding is taking place in can also make an attractive favor. The theme or type of book you decide to give is endless. It can be anything that has personal meaning to either you or the groom. Think outside the box and give from the heart. The inside of the book cover can be inscribed by the bride and groom with thank you or well wishes can create a very personal touch.

5. Donations made to a cause near and dear to the bride and grooms heart exceptionally unique. I once had a friend make a donation in my name for my birthday. I thought it was an amazing idea and very personal. Attached to the note was a small token of remembrance. To this day when I catch a glimpse of the token it warms my heart. Remember to create a note card letting your guest know you have made a donation in their name to a charity or your choice. Let them know a little about the charity or organization you have made the donation to, why that particular charity is so special to you. Finally, remember to thank your guest..... after all they did make a donation to a worthy cause.
