Wedding favors come in all shapes, sizes, and prices. Here are just a few wedding favor options to consider.
Edible: When in doubt of what to give as wedding favors, give guests something edible or drinkable. Some favorites are chocolates, a food bar with personalized containers or bags, homemade honey or jam, and personalized wine/beer bottles.
Charitable: If you and your fiancé(e) are looking to give back on your big day, go with charitable wedding favors. With these, you can make a donation to one or more of your favorite charities in your guests name.
Trinkets: Personalized trinkets are a great way to say thank you without going way over budget. These can be anything from a bottle opener to personalized glasses and mini mason jars. A current wedding favor trend is drink koozies.
