Guest wedding favours have really changed since I was a kid. I remember my mom and dad coming home from weddings and bringing back squares of fruitcake with white icing wrapped in plastic. I always thought to myself, "who would actually eat that?" But I suppose back then, that was what you would give your guests as a thank-you for attending. Thankfully alot has changed since then as far as wedding favours are concerned. People are coming up with fantastic ideas for favours that guests actually like. Depending on how much time you have and how much you want to spend I´ve compiled a list that are in my opinion some of the best and most modern guest wedding favours.
Cake Pops - these little guys are very popular and if you have lots of time you can easily make them yourself. You can buy the cake pop machines whip up the batter and dip them in melted chocolate. Have some stickers made up for the clear baggies and then tie with ribbon that matches your wedding colour scheme. Or you an reach out to great companies such as KCNY Treats
Shots or little bottles of booze or champagne are a good idea. I especially like the little tag that´s attached. You can make these tags on your computer yourself and have these favours done very quickly. As long as you don´t indulge while you´re putting them together.
I absolutely love this idea. Give your guests seed packets so they can grow their own flowers. Everytime they look at them they´ll think of you with fond memories of your awesome wedding. What´s also great about this is that there is virtually no work involved. Get yourself a wheelbarrow or something similar buy the seed packets and place them in with a nice little sign. Finished.
Who doesn´t like sweet honey? I especially like the burlap cover on the tiny bottles and matching honey stick. The accompanying tag is simple and clever. These really suit a rustic wedding. And if you happen to be a bee keeper, even better. Or speak to The Honey Bee Store
Many fall weddings are loving candy apples and who doesn’t love that! It gives the feeling of fall and Halloween. There are some great companies out there such as The Golden Apple Confectionary Inc. or if you’re feeling brave, you could make them yourselves!
