Today we feature my favorite kind of wedding favors.
I feel very strongly that wedding favors need to be useful – they should be more than a useless knickknack. I love wedding favors that are edible or wedding favors that can be planted in your garden.
But most of all, I love wedding favors that serve double duty – they are perfect for the budget conscious bride. What do I mean by double duty? I mean favors that also serve as a place card or, when displayed on the table, become the centerpiece. Here are some of my favorites:
Picture Frame Favor – Place Card
This pink rhinestone frame from hotref.comis used as a place card for guest seating and also functions as a cute wedding favor that guests can take home.
Bamboo Wedding Favor – Centerpiece
Group these individual pots from natureperfect.comtogether on each table to make a unique centerpiece. Guests get to pick one and take it home afterwards!
Shot Glass Wedding Favor and Special Toast
Serve filled shot glasses, like these ones from favorfavor.com to the guests and ask them to participate in a special toast. Perfect fun for a destination wedding where you can use the local specialty (tequila, grappa, jagermeister…). Then they get to take the glass home as a wedding favor.
Custom Dice Wedding Favor and Reception Ice Breaker
A cute favor for the Las Vegas wedding or geeky couple who love to play yahtzee. Create custom yahtzee score paper and include a cup at each table so that your guests can have some fun getting to know each other while the wedding party is off getting photos taken. Provide prizes to the winner at each table or reward them by forcing them to sing a song or share a story about the happy couple!
