Wedding favors are a staple of the reception ritual. Guests expect a memorable time and a piece of that memory to take home (even if it ends up in the garbage). I have seen guests walk away with all kinds of things including the rental plates. Putting together the perfect giveaway can wind up costing a good chunk of your wedding budget as well, especially with a large guest list. I know that no couple wants their hard earned money to go to waste either. No worries! Here are 5 quick ideas to get you heading in the right direction.
Infused Spirits (Candy Corn Vodka…Yes, Please!)
Your can buy spirits and infuse them yourself or have your own special blend made. Serve it at the bar for BYOB wedding venues or display the gift bottles like a mini bar at the reception for guests to take home.
Take Home Incense Bar
Setup a station for guests to sample and sniff. 🙂 You guests will have so much fun choosing their favorite scents and they will be reminded of their fun time every time they use it.
*Incense not your thing? Try scented candles and essential oil room sprays.
Reusable Tote Bags and Water Bottles There are so many cute wedding themed designs out there for printed goods. Look for reusable items that they can use at the party and take home! These wine glasses make great decor items for each place setting, make it easy for guests to keep track of their drinks, and they will be sure to take them home to use again and again.
Take One Free Library
Mix and match both of your favorite books and aim for the same amount of books as your guest list! This is a great way to share something personal and individual with each guest.
Charitable Donation (Find the right cause at GiveWell.org!)
Giving a donation in your guests honor is great way to pay it forward! It is also a guaranteed way to make sure your gift will not go to waste.
