A city like Miami makes it easy when it comes to sourcing local wedding favors and stuffing gift bags. Weave in tastes of the city's best when it comes to art, culture and, of course, world-class cuisine, for wedding souvenirs that your guests can only find in Miami.
Cuba Tobacco Cigar Co.
Throw a piece of Miami's Latin flair into wedding favors with handmade cigars rolled by the experts themselves in Miami's version of Cuba — Little Havana. The Bello family has been in the Cuban cigar-making biz for over 100 years — now in its fifth generation — opening their first factory in Cuba in 1896 and later bringing their cigar culture to Miami in the 50s, so your guests are guaranteed to be treated to some of the finest quality hand-rolled cigars in the city.
Peace Love World
The Havana-born, Miami-based designer Alina Villasante is one of the biggest proponents of love — just take a look at her Peace Love World collection emblazoned with phrases like "I am love" and "love is everything." Customize one of these unisex tees throwing in your own slogan to symbolize your special day.
Zak the Baker
The kosher baker set up shop just over a year ago in the artsy Wynwood neighborhood, but his bread has been making an appearance at farmer's markets and on menus around town for quite some time now. Prepare a sampling of Zak's finest, mixing and matching baked treats like the dark chocolate, rose and flourless chocolate almond cookies composing a grab bag of goodies perfect for guests that are gluten free, kosher or just have a sweet tooth.
Schnebly Redland's Winery
Miami may not be Napa Valley when it comes to wine, but the city does have a secret sitting in Homestead — Schnebly Redland's Winery. The local winery and brewery does private labeling, so you can send guests home with their own bottle of bubbly in Florida flavors like passion or lychee, or craft a specialty beer in a souvenir growler.

Brazilian artist Romero Britto is quite a fixture on Miami's art scene with his pop art sculptures spread around town. While you can't send every guest home with an original work of art, you can give them a piece of Miami in the form of a small trinket, such as a compact mirror or luggage tag, printed with one of Britto's love-inspired pieces.
