What to Put in Favor Boxes

To round out today’s posts (in case you missed ‘em, learn how to protect wedding cake outdoors this summer and 21 unique be my bridesmaid card ideas) we’re offering another wonderful Ask Emmaline question! When Sara and Evan started planning their wedding, they made a super-tight budget (and have stuck to it so far) but they knew favors would be one large expense. When Sara found an amazing deal on favor boxes, she snapped them up — but now she wants to know what to put in favor boxes. She writes, “Emmaline! I need help. My fiance Evan and I are making our wedding favors and we found boxes… but now what are we supposed to put in them?” Read on to find out what to put in favor boxes and enter for a chance to win favor boxes of your very own, ready to ship + fill, by Paper Angel Designs! Enjoy!

What to Put in Favor Boxes (boxes: paper angel designs)

paper angel designs

What to Put in Favor Boxes

Our favorite ideas for favor box ‘fillers’ include:

o M&Ms

Ideal for a summer wedding, M&Ms won’t melt. You can get creative with custom personalized m&ms. They are a bit expensive, though, so if you want to stay on budget we recommend the regular ones. Buy M&Ms in bulk to save money.

o Jordan Almonds

They’re a popular, traditional wedding custom. Typically, you place five Jordan almonds inside a favor box to represent health, wealth, happiness, children, and a long life.

o Hershey Kisses

Simple. Sweet. Affordable! Hershey kisses are an easy candy to put in favor boxes and almost everyone loves chocolate! Buy Hershey kisses in bulk to keep costs down. Note: don’t use these if you’re having a summer wedding, unless your venue is air-conditioned; otherwise, you’ll have a melty mess.

o Nuts / Trail Mix

You can buy huge bulk bags of trail mix or nuts to put in favor boxes. I love trail mix, you know, because it’s so healthy (or so they say, but I’m always digging through the bag to pull out the M&Ms. I know I’m not alone on this.) This is my favorite trail mix from Costco.

o Taffy

Salt water taffy is one of those worry-free candies, since it won’t melt and each piece is individually wrapped. Buy a huge bag of salt water taffy in a flavor that coordinates with your wedding color palette.

o Mints

After dinner mints (the pastel kind) are a great choice because they’re small so they fit in nearly any favor box. They’re also appreciated by guests (who doesn’t love a mint after dinner?) I love these mints but these are my all-time favorite (though the chocolate will, again, pose a problem if your wedding is in the summer outdoors).

Favor Boxes Giveaway!

Now that you know what to put in favor boxes, it’s time to enter for a chance to win a set of boxes of your own!

o Enter between 5/14/14-5/20/14 (11:59pm EST)
o Prize: win a set of fifty wedding favor boxes, any color (shown below)
o Winner will be randomly selected and announced on 5/21; winner announced on this blog post and emailed

Teacup Escort Card Favors

We have seen some amazing escort card displays in the past, but this our new favorite! Introducing teacup escort cards, a unique way for guests to find their seats, enjoy a drink, and take home a favor in one…

teacup-escort-cards

Teacup Escort Cards

We spotted this teacup escort card display via this La Jolla Wedding (photographed by Irish Grzanich with event deign by Amorology) that totally blew us away. The bride and groom planned a vintage-inspired wedding with modern accents and bright pops of color. As a nod to tea, the bride and groom offered hand-picked teacups as escort cards and favors to guests. The teacup escort cards were displayed from hooks on a makeshift display wall. A charming sign read, “Enjoy a spot of tea.” Escort cards with each guest’s name and table assignment were tied with ribbons to the cup handles.

enjoy-a-spot-of-tea-teacup-escort-cards

EB TIP: Shop for mismatched teacups at thrift shops! You’ll find a plethora of unique designs and each cup will be unique. Or grab a few teacups in a favorite pattern for the wedding party.

Teacup Escort Card Favors (photo: irish grzanich)

This would be a nice addition to a wedding tea bar or sweets buffet. Serve scones, strawberries, cakes, pastries, and pie.

If you’d like, pair it with tea favors for guests to take to-go with their new teacup. These tea favors are packaged and ready-to-go by Dell Cove Spices.

How to Make Favor Tags Less Boring

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…

how to make favor tags less boring

classic kraft tag: dress my cupcake

Wedding Favor Tags

Wedding favor tags come in all sorts of sizes and shapes. Recently, I stopped in at a few local craft stores to get a glimpse on what’s popular right now. It seems like kraft favor tags are here to stay — and white tags are always popular for weddings, too. Mix and match different shapes by using scalloped tags or heart shaped tags

Pick a Tag, Any Tag

1 – scalloped kraft tag, 2 – scalloped white tag, 3 – heart kraft tag

I also love round tags, especially for small favors (so they won’t overpower the item).

For more formal soirees, try these notched square favor tags with a silver-y border.

Guests can re-use these mini chalkboard tags! Chalkboard is still in… and it continues to be an emerging trend in weddings.

wrapables

Add Some String

After you’ve picked a tag, you can add embellishment to is. Sometimes a kraft tag will come with standard twine which can be switched out for something more fun. Colorful twine, for instance, is one of my favorite options (especially for whimsical weddings).

colorful bakers twine

pink lemonade (maya road), orange and white twine (hemptique), blue twine (maya road), yellow and white (hemptique)

For a rustic wedding, jute twine (almost rope-like) or hemp string are perfect accents.

jute twine hemp cord

jute twine, hemp bead cord

Or, for a beach wedding, raffia is a natural (and fitting) option.

raffia ribbon

natural raffia, green raffia

Stamp It

Finally, a stamp is the easiest way to personalize your favor tags. Add a stamp to your tag that incorporates your theme (such as an anchor for a nautical wedding, shell stamp for a beach wedding, bird stamp for a bird themed wedding, woodland animal stamp for a woodland wedding… you get the idea). If you choose a larger tag (like this style kraft tag), you can further personalize it with a big stamp that includes your names and the wedding date. Here are a few examples:

thank you wedding favor tags stampedlove birds favor tag

tickled pink paper & ink

It’s that easy!

Now you have favor tags that are completely personalized, hand-picked (and DIYed) by you, and perfect for your upcoming wedding.

Giveaway: Win a Favor Tag Stamp!

Now that you’ve seen some examples, it’s time to enter for a chance to win a FREE wedding favor stamp, personalized for your big day! The stamp is by Tickled Pink Paper + Ink and is a $24.95 value.
