Creative Favor Ideas

Wedding Favors are a great way to thank your guests for coming to your wedding, but a lot of couples struggle with choosing what exactly they will be using for their wedding keepsake. Favors used to be a small token for guests, but they have now evolved to fun ways for couples to express their personality, and elevate the guest experience. We’ve all seen the classic favors, but we know you want something fun and unique for your wedding. So we’ve gathered some of our favorite favor ideas to take your wedding to the next level!

Edible Favors

Let’s start with an easy one, who doesn’t love a yummy wedding treat? From drinks, to snacks, there is a special favor for everyone.

Tea & Coffee

Are you a caffeine lover? Show off your love with your favors! One of our top favors from this past year are these cute little tea bags that came with a strainer.
The couple blended two of their favorite teas for each of their guests to enjoy as a
thank you for helping them celebrate their special day.

Practical Favors

Are you looking for a favor that your guests can use? A practical favor might be the option for you. The possibilities are literally endless, but here are a few of our favorites…

Salt + Pepper Shakers – when the couples initials are S+P, salt and pepper seemed like the perfect choice. It also happened to match their ivory, grey, and slate blue color scheme. Perfect! Their guests will think back on this beautiful day every time they use these shakers.

Custom Bottle Openers – Are you a beer lover? This couple had a love for beer and bikes, so this favor was a no-brainer. And who doesn’t need a cute bottle opener?

Photo Book – We love this favor because it pulls double duty as a favor, and a fun guest book! Ask guests to take a photo, either with a polaroid camera or a photo booth. Guests can keep one copy of the photo, and the other goes into your guestbook, where guests can write a note next to their picture. An added bonus is that this will keep guests entertained!

Candles are a fun favor that guests can use long after the wedding is over. You can purchase them, or make them if you are looking to do some DIY.

Go a step further like this lucky bride who’s brother is a wood carver! He made custom wooden votives for each guest, then displayed them on this amazing wine barrel display. The votives also served as the seating chart for the wedding. So creative!

"Elliston is beautiful and there are many good spots to take pictures. One of the highlights was our day-or-coordinator, Kimberley. I had so many questions that came up while I was planning our wedding and Kimberley was always quick to respond. The day of our wedding, she kept everything on schedule and we got several comments from guests about how on top of it she was. Without her, we only would have gotten through half of what was planned for the day. She also made sure all of my decor items were set up exactly how I wanted. Thank you!" - Samantha & Brian - September 15, 2019
