When it comes to wedding favors, it’s easy to opt for something that (let’s face it) your guests will probably never use. Candy pieces, rice, and bubbles are all fun ideas, but (again, let’s face it) completely overused. For a truly unique wedding favor, consider some of these ideas:
Seedlings/Succulents: Why not send your guests home with a living plant? If you’ve got a green thumb, you can even grow them yourself starting just a few weeks before the wedding. Attach a thank-you card with some ribbon and voila!
Cotton Candy: Personal favorite. Doesn’t everyone love cotton candy? Not only is it dirt cheap to make, but it will also add a touch of the whimsical to your big day—and you can make it any color you want!
Seeds: If you’re not into planting seedlings or purchasing them for your guests, consider handing out packets of seeds they can grow for themselves.
Handkerchiefs: Save your guests the trouble of going through multiple Kleenexes during the wedding and reception. Instead, pass out stylized handkerchiefs to catch all their tears of joy.
Jar of Something: Of course your love is the sweetest thing in the room, but honey or jam puts up some good competition. Use mini mason jars to package individual jars of honey or your favorite jam. You can even attach a honey stick or tiny spoons to encourage guests to dig in.
Caramel Apples: It might be a little time intensive, but passing out caramel apples will guarantee a better response than Jordan almonds or M&Ms ever could.
Fresh Fruit: If you’re getting married in the summer or fall, there are probably berries of some sort in season. Why not pass out small grab bags filled with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or even cherries?
