Unique Wedding Favor Ideas
The quest for unique wedding favors can be a rocky journey filled with endless hours perusing online wedding stores. Unfortunately, a lot of favors that are out there are maddeningly similar due to the lack of innovation in pre-made favors. Especially if edible favors aren’t you and your fiance’s cup of tea, finding the perfect favor in a sea of boring options can lead to frustration. Luckily, if you have reached the point of favor frustration, this post will provide some relief.
If you and your fiance were meant to be, this cute tin of heart shaped mints is a clever favor option. The mints meet a whole slew of criteria for a great wedding favor: they can be easily be wrapped with a bow or in a box to match wedding colors or theme, they are budget friendly (only $1.80 per favor if you have over 100 guests), and every guest will enjoy receiving one – especially if any part of your meal includes garlic or onions.
“Apple of My Eye”
A charming wedding theme that has been popping up recently is apples. Apples have been used as a design element, as place card holders, as centerpiece decor, and as symbolism for an overarching school / bookish wedding theme. Brides who love apples will adore these
“apple of my eye” candles (pictured at top) that look identical to the real thing.
Wrapped in a pretty, customized box, we think they’d look lovely doing double duty as place card holders. Either use a pearlized pin to affix a place card to the apple candle itself, or add another tag to the box that includes the guest’s name and table number. These apple candles would look great lined up on a place card table as well as sitting in the center of a plate. And for only $1.50 per favor (for over 100 guest weddings), you’ll have a beautiful, simple solution for both place cards and favors.
“Hugs & Kisses from Mr. and Mrs.”
Beautifully wrapped soaps are another unique wedding favor. Unfortunately, many companies who sell pre-wrapped fragrant soaps are pricey, putting the idea out of the price range for most brides. However, we found the chicest X and O soap favors for only $1.70 each. The pretty black and white damask box the soaps come nestled in are ideal for damask weddings, which are another popular decor trend. Brides can also replace the pre-tied black ribbon on the box with a ribbon that matches their wedding color (or colors) for a customized look at a bargain price. Slip on a holepunched nametag before retying the matching ribbon, and these can double as place card holders too.
