What is a Wedding Favor?
A wedding favor is a small gift given to guests at a wedding, dinner, or party. It is a small token of your appreciation and is given as a take-home gift for guests.
While favors only account for approximately 1-2% of your wedding budget, but they can make a big impact even if you give small gifts when done properly.
The key is to choose a wedding favor that is small and simple, yet useful to your guests. It can be something edible (i.e. chocolate), a household idem (i.e. a bottle opener or bowl), or something useful (candle or soap). You’ll also want to make sure the item is personalized for the event. A simple customized sticker and a colorful ribbon are all it takes to dress it up a bit.
