There are numerous reasons why couples choose to give wedding favors—they are a great way to thank your guests while providing a tactile memory of your special day.
Before choosing the perfect wedding favor, it’s a good idea to finalize your budget. Once you decide how much to spend, it’s time for the fun to begin – choosing the favors you’d like to give out, whether they’re edible treats, cute keepsakes or something entirely different. If you’re undecided—we’ve got lots of great wedding favor suggestions below.

Local Honey or Jam
To sweeten up your wedding, offer small batches of honey, jams, or other preserves in small mason jars. This is a great favour option for a rustic theme!
Photo Booth Photos
Photobooths have become increasingly popular at weddings, and it’s no surprise why. They’re a fun way to celebrate your special day while also acting as an instant favour for your guests!
Nothing says “thank you” better than a hand-written letter. Express your gratitude to your guests with a Handwritten note describing what their presence at your wedding means to you, and perhaps some heartfelt memories you have shared. Guests will take home a unique note that they’ll surely treasure for years to come.
Choose a favour that complements the time of year you are tying the knot for a perfectly themed favor. Getting married in the winter? Send your guests home with a mini snowglobe. Having an autumn event? Give your guests some painted mini pumpkins. Planning a summer celebration? Give out decorative fans! (You get the idea).
Fresh Flowers from your Centerpieces
Repurpose your floral decor by allowing your guests to create their own bouquets using the flowers and greenery on your tables. You can provide your guests with tin pails, paper cones, or mini vases to collect flowers. This is an eco-friendly way to give purpose to the flowers instead of tossing them when the event is over!
Cultural Wedding Favours
Honor the heritage of you and your spouse with a culturally significant gift. For example, if you are of Japanese heritage, you could offer matcha, or if you were from the Netherlands, a small piece of Delft-inspired pottery would be a lovely way to celebrate your culture.
