There's no doubt your wedding will be an unforgettable affair for everyone involved. But incorporating one-of-a-kind personalized wedding favors is a sure-fire way to take it to the next level.
Sending your guests home with a memorable keepsake is such a special way to thank them for joining you for your celebration. But the key to handing out a great wedding favor is to offer something your guests will actually use and enjoy. Something that’s functional and personalized is always a great way to go, sending attendees home with a memento to commemorate your big day for weeks (or even years) to come. And as an added bonus, you have another great opportunity to put your own unique spin on yet another wedding component.
Wedding favors range from food-focused gifts to items for the home. From mini cans of wine and custom jars of honey to perfectly potted succulents, the options are seemingly endless. But items such as a candle or a deck of cards—something that’s truly useful—tend to be the most popular.
Pricing for favors can certainly range, with the average cost of wedding favors coming in anywhere between $3 to $10. Of course, that number will depend on how elaborate or personalized of a gift you’re getting, how many you’re planning to order, or if you're going the DIY route. The custom guest gift options are truly infinite, and there are so many ways to incorporate a lovely set-up of favors into your wedding, whether adding them to your tablescape at each place setting or putting together a beautiful display all on its own.
