7 Wedding Favors Your Guests Will Actually Want

wedding favors

I’ve been to a lot of weddings and gotten a lot of wedding favors. One year I went to 3 weddings in one month and was thanked for my attendance with a jar of jam.  None were homemade and the crowd was on the younger side-they just weren’t the “jam” type.  It was a nice idea but for the money that they spent on these gifts I think that they could have gotten a little more bang for their buck. Sadly, at every wedding there was A LOT of jam left over. So much so in fact that when I saw at least 2 of the brides about a month later-they all begged me to PLEASE take some jam home! I ate a lot of PBJ’s that summer!

Here are 12 wedding favors your guests will love taking home with them!



Brides of North Texas had a great idea! How about two cute donuts in a box for guests to take with them as they leave!

Mini Wine Bottles

Nobody will pass up coffee to enjoy the next morning! This bride went the extra mile and had two different roasts of coffee and let guests choose their favorite blend.  We think this would be a really popular gift to go!
