Fabulous Favors

A wedding favor is the one part of the wedding which your guests will take home as a reminder of your wedding.

{Quick Note: Wedding week has been extended because I was whisked away to the resort where we got married this week as a surpise… hence the delay in new wedding posts}…

Have you ever wondered when this favor tradition started? I recently read a fun article on the subject and thought it might be fun to showcase some of our favorite DIY favor ideas for ‘wedding week’ on the blog!


I browsed the web for a few other fabulous & fun favor ideas and here’s what I came up with…

Here’s the breakdown…

1. Baked Goods: Who wouldn’t love a yummy treat for the way home or the next day to enjoy? This  Homemade Pie by StyleMePretty is a perfect idea to show your gratitude to your guests!


2. A Garden To Go. I love the idea of killing two birds with one stone! Take this idea from Martha Stewart of using potted plants as your centerpieces that also become your favors later!

3. Yarn wrapped boxes fill with your choice of candy, almonds, or cookies by Martha Stewart.

4. Light up your guests with homemade candles by 100 Layer Cake. These candles are sure to brighten smiles and spaces! The might be a little time consuming, but the rewarding as your guests enjoy a fun take home gift!

5. I love the idea of a homemade smores kit for a winter wedding themed favor! It’s cute, unique and will give your guests an fun experience later on! This kit made by Valley & Co Blog is adorable!

6. Cake Pops are all the rage these days. These macaroon pops by Bakeralla would make a fun treat for your wedding guests. Customize your pop with your color scheme and tie a fun ribbon around the stick!

7. Another great idea for a winter themed wedding is homemade hot cocoa favors. They are easy to create and will make a big statement to yor guests. Follow the tips at Ruffled to make your hot cocoa gift! {This would make a fun Christmas gift for teachers, co-workers & friends}.

8. A summer themed wedding would be perfect for lemon drop favors. These cute jars filled with lemon drops by Style Me Pretty make for an easy DIY favor!

9. I love, love, love the idea of homemade strawberry jam as a wedding favor. It is such a sweet gift idea and one that your guests will be able to enjoy at least a couple of times! This favor by Intimate Weddings is perfect for spring & summer weddings!
