There’s a reason why people say that your wedding day is one of the most unforgettable experiences of your life. Not only are you making a lifelong commitment to the partner you love, but many details make the day unique and memorable.

You want to make sure your guests feel your gratitude for their support and participation on your big day. One way to say “thank you” is by handing out wedding favors. These favors give guests a tangible memory to take home at the end of the celebration.

What wedding favors do you want to hand out to your guests? Here are a few ideas you might consider:

Personalized Glassware

When everyone is toasting the newlyweds, they can have a custom champagne flute in hand and take this gift home at the end of the night. Custom glassware can be embossed with your wedding date and name. Or choose a general design with a wedding graphic or phrase like “Sip, sip, hooray!” Another option is to hand out custom shot glasses with a small logo, date, and your name.

Mini Succulents

One trendy option right now is handing out a small succulent plant to send a bit of greenery home with your guests. The plants are in cute little buckets, and you can attach a little note or tag that says something like “Let love grow” with your name and wedding date.

Sweet Treats

Even though you are already serving food, drinks, and dessert at the event, consider sending your guests home with another sweet treat for the road. Small boxes of chocolates or mints can be personalized with your wedding information. Or hand out mini jars filled with all-natural honey, and print a cute pun on the label: “Thanks for bee-ing here” or “Love is sweet.”
