Wedding Favor Ideas

As your wedding reception comes to an end, it's nice to give your guests a little something to take home to commemorate your special day. Although you've just given your guests a night full of delicious food and entertainment, party favors are a great way to say thank you and show appreciation to your guests for helping you celebrate. Recent party trends show that DIY favors are growing in popularity and are taking over the party scene. Not only do they allow you to personalize your favors by crafting them yourself, but they are also a great way to involve friends and family who want to help. For inspiration, here are some DIY favor ideas that you can use:

Caramel Apples: Caramel apples are a great favor for guests of all ages. First, attach your apple to a stick, then dip in caramel, and finish by coating with a topping! Guests are sure to go nuts for this super sweet favor.

Bag of Recpies: Give your guests a taste of the evening to take home; create personalized tote bags (wallet sized), and include either your favorite recipes or recipes from the evening's food inside.

Homemade Cookies: Food is always a great favor; guests love it! While you wait for your cookies to bake, consider decorating to-go boxes for each of your guests that will act as a cookie container and of course, an extra keepsake.

Wedding Flash Drive: Just because guests have to go home doesn't mean the party has to really end. Before the reception, create a flash drive that includes the night's play list as well as any photos or videos that you think reflect your special day. Don't forget to email your guests photos and videos from the night afterwards that they can download and save to the flash drive themselves!

Candy Bars: Whether you make the bars or buy them, there's still room to personalize them. Select a few of your favorite photos of the bride and groom, and print them onto lightweight paper. Then, remove the outer wrapping from the bar and replace it with your photo.
