Wedding favors aren’t obligatory, and not everybody does them anymore. But the number one most popular wedding favor remains, without a doubt, something edible your guests can have late night, when the post-wedding munchies hit.
Homemade fancy Chex mix with M&Ms, chocolate truffles, popcorn, cookies or macaroons all make a yummy surprise inside little cartons or mini Chinese food containers. With big fat yummy cookies that just beg to be munched, don’t bother with travel containers. Just put them in little plastic bags and tie with a ribbon that matches your wedding colors.
With that said, lots of brides and grooms prefer to make keepsakes, rather than consumables. The trick is to give them something they actually want to receive, not another something to collect dust on the dresser, or get left behind in their hotel room.
Personalized wine bottle corks, wine bottle openers, beer bottle opener key chains, and other practical items are all popular, but look tacky unless packaged up to look pretty.
These adorable little bags featured were wedding favors for a Caribbean destination wedding. Each bag contained a tiny glass bottle with a cork, for their wedding guests to take some sand home as a memory of the wedding weekend. They attached tags featuring their wedding colors with a nice sentiment from the bride and groom.
