How to Make Favor Tags Less Boring

Posted January 24, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 46 Comments

Wedding favors are one of my favorite parts of the wedding planning process. While some may say favors aren’t necessary, I think they’re a totally fun detail that I love to see at weddings. However, they don’t need to be overly pricey or detailed. Keep it sweet, simple, and personalized — and your guests will love ‘em. We’ll talk about our favorite wedding favors for 2014 in a few days (stay tuned!) but today we’re focusing on favor tags. Any wedding favor you dream up, create, or buy will require some sort of personalization to make it your own. A popular (and easy-to-DIY) detail you can add is a tag. It can say thank you to guests, include your name and/or wedding date, and tie in your theme just a bit further. In this post, we’ll share favorite ideas for DIYing your favor tags PLUS one lucky reader will win one of the items below! Read on for the full scoop…

Hey, mason jar lovers: you thought you’ve seen it all. Until now. Have you seen mason jar shot glasses? These tiny, 2.4oz shot glasses are threaded at the top to look like the real deal. There’s no lid, but then again, you don’t really need one. The front of each glass is appropriately stamped with, simply, “shots”. These mason jar shot glasses make a perfect wedding party gift (I can picture groomsmen toasting the groom with these) or post-celebration with the whole crew. Give them as gifts to your wedding party attendants or buy ‘em in bulk and give them out to guests as a charming barn wedding favor. Check ‘em out up close…
