Wedding Favor Containers

1. Cake Slice Favor Box

First and foremost, how can you not love these cake slice favor boxes? I’ve been obsessed with them since day one. Put candies in these boxes and assemble into a ‘cake’ shape on your table.

5. Pillowbox Favors

A pillowbox favor is a sweet, rounded twist to the traditional square. Pretty personalization makes them perfect.

6. Cotton Drawstring Favor Bags

These cotton drawstring favor bags are popular wedding favor containers because they’re small, can be customized to suit any theme, and can fit a small candy of your choice. Plus, they’re reusable.

7. Favor Tins

These favor tins are especially fun because of their colorful patterns + prints.

8. Clear Glassine Envelope Bags

These glassine envelope bags are ideal for toss seed (for your ceremony), flower seed (as favors), or, grab a larger version from the shop and use it to wrap fresh baked goods.

9. Kraft Paper Bags

I love these favor bags! They’re personalized, have a rustic flair, and are ideal for wrapped candies.

10. Clear Glass Votives (Perfect for Succulents)

We’ve seen succulents placed in all kinds of wedding favor containers, but a clear glass votive is a new one. I love the addition of rocks to dress them up. The succulents start out small and are to be replanted by guests once they outgrow their container. You can get a complete set here (including the succulents) for stress-free packaging. Love.

11. Glass and Cork Containers

These glass containers include a cork topper to set them apart from other traditional glass bottles.

12. Ball Jelly Jar (4 oz.)

Use 4 oz. jelly jars to give homemade jam, honey, or cakes in a jar. This size is perfect: just add a label + ribbon or a tag.

13. Cupcake Bell Jars

I still love these! I have a set of them at home and they’re perfect for displaying petite desserts, like cupcakes, cookies, or macarons.

15. Glass Mini Liquor Bottles

These bottles can be filled with… liquor. That’s it, and lucky for you these are all pre-packaged and ready-to-go! Perfect for your wedding party.

16. Kraft Takeout Boxes

I like these because they’re made of kraft brown paper. The fabric or ribbon wrapped around it completes the look.
