Fun Wedding Favors Your Guests Will Love

Wedding favors aren't something that you absolutely have to have at your wedding, but it's a great way to add a little whimsy and say thank you to the guests for sharing your special day. It's also a perfect place to personalize the event. Angelus Bridal has listed a few of our favorite wedding favors for you here. Your guests won't be leaving these behind after the reception! 

1. Something tasty.
Everyone loves to receive delicious treats. There are plenty of adorable ways to turn fun food into your wedding favors. Jars of honey are cute if you are "meant to bee" or jars of jam to "spread the love," packages of Hershey's Hugs & Kisses, or heart sugar cookies with your new monogram iced onto them. Food favors always put a smile on guests' faces.   

2. Local flair.
Look to your wedding location for clever favor ideas. If you are getting married on the beach, send beautiful seashells you've collected home with your guests. Share something the town is known for, like Atlantic City is famous for salt water taffy and Florida is known for growing amazing oranges. If you and the groom went to the same high school or college, incorporate the school emblem in some way. Local items make for wonderful mementos of the day.   

3. Seasonal symbols.
Fall is the perfect time to put a mini pumpkin at each place setting, and you can even go the extra step and write each guest's name on one. If you are planning a Christmas ceremony, a beautiful ornament for everybody is a great gift. A walk through the seasonal aisle in any store should give you some excellent ideas, and if you plan a year in advance, you can pick some up after the season for a discount.   

4. Your favorite things.
What do you and your groom love? Chances are, your guests will love those things too. If not, maybe knowing you are interested in it will pique their interest. If you both love baseball, offer peanuts and cracker jacks for your guests. If you are wine-lovers, give everyone a lovely wine topper. Avid bookworms could visit the local used book store and give every guest something to take home and read. 

5. Something to last.
What we mean by that is an item that will live on after the wedding, just like your love. Small plants or potted flowers are sweet favors that can double as table decor. You could also give each guest a pretty pot and seeds to plant on their own so they can continue to "watch your love grow!"

Wedding favors aren't a necessity, but if you have room in your budget, they can be lots of fun. A wedding dress, on the other hand, is something you will definitely need to have for your big day. The best bridal gowns in South Florida can be found at Angelus Bridal & Formals, and we have years of experience in helping brides find the perfect one.
