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…

Hello, hello! Today we’re talking about wedding favors: have you selected what you’ll offer to guests? A wedding favor is an excellent way to say thank you and show guests your appreciation. A wedding favor is not necessarily extravagant; it is meant to be a small token of your appreciation and a take-home gift for guests. I (Emma here!) think the best wedding favors are those that fall into two categories: edible or functional. An edible favor, like a take-home bag of candy from a candy buffet, is enjoyed on the ride home or the next day. A functional favor, like soap wedding favors (which we’ll discuss today), is enjoyed at home until it’s gone. Today, we’re focusing on functional wedding favors, using soap wedding favors as one such suggestion. We’ll also be showcasing an organic line of fabulous soaps, body scrubs, and more from the fabulous team of JenSan. Read on to be inspired…
