This idea not only provides some extra snacks at the reception for your guests to munch on, but it also it allows them to take some tasty treats to go – the best of both worlds! There are lots of options for favor boxes, so choose one that fits with your theme or customize one with your names and wedding date.

3. Tealight Holders

Another classic wedding favor that will help decorate your venue is a tealight holder that your guests can take with them before they leave for the night.

5. Customized Cups

Who doesn’t love a customized cup as a memento from a wedding? A glass set at each guest’s seat that they can use and then take home with them is always a fun idea for a wedding favor. They can be customized to match your color and theme, and you can choose the perfect type of glass for your wedding style. Hosting a vineyard wedding? A wine glass or stemless wine glass is the perfect option for you! Throwing a backyard BBQ wedding? Then pint sized beer glasses work best for you. Choosing the style and design is fun, and your guests will love using them for years to come.

6. Bottle Stopper

If you’re hosting wine at each table, consider gifting each guest a wine bottle stopper as your wedding favor.

Whatever you choose for your wedding favors, don’t forget to have fun while picking them out! The important thing is to make sure your small gift is a thoughtful way to thank your guests for helping you celebrate the most important day of your life.
