Wedding favors are a great way to say ‘Thank You’ to everyone that traveled from far and made it possible to be there on your big day. Wedding favors date back to the 16th century. In England, it was common for couples to give “love knots” constructed from lace and ribbons to symbolize their bond of love. Since then, wedding favors have evolved to many types of gifts and treats. I’m sure if you have attended lots of weddings you have seen lots of ideas.
Look for items that are thoughtful or useful that everyone can enjoy. A yummy treat is also a great idea. Here are just a few ideas we have for you:
Chocolate Covered Almonds
It is tradition in Italian, Greek, and Middle Eastern cultures to give almonds away as a favor. The five almonds represent five wishes for the bride and groom: health, wealth, happiness, fertility, and longevity. Many people choose this classic wedding favor.
Soap is both useful and can be packaged in a way that is beautiful and creative. Consider getting them from a local soap maker or making your own.
Whether it be a mason jar cup, beer mug, or shot glass, get your guests a cup with your names or a fun saying and the wedding date. Guests will be able to keep these for years after and always remember the fun they had. Guests can also drink out of them during the night.
Let your love burn with a scented candle guests can enjoy at home. Everyone loves candles so it is bound to be a hit!
One of the best ways to make sure your guests don’t leave hungry or empty handed at the end of the night is to send them away with a yummy treat. Our personal favorite… a popcorn bar. A build-your-own popcorn bar can come with multiple sweet and savory flavors, which make it a great snack for everyone. You can send the popcorn home in mason jars, decorative bags, or another container that fits the theme of your wedding.
When you book a popcorn bar with PrePOPsterous you can customize your flavors, colors, messages, and containers.
