Are you wondering where to buy beach towel wedding favors? For weddings, engagement parties, or wedding showers, beach towels are fail-proof favors your guests are sure to enjoy — and actually use. For the 2020 wedding season, couples are looking to buy beach towel wedding favors for the summer and fall months. In the summertime, towels can be used on the sand, at a picnic, or at an outdoor concert; during the fall months as the nights get chilly, use it as a cozy wrap or blanket around a campfire or stay warm on a hayride. To top it off, these bulk beach towels are affordable and can be personalized in an instant.
In this post, we’ll tell you where to buy beach towel favors, how to make personalized beach towel wedding favors — cheap! — and explain just how versatile this towel really is.
Bulk Beach Towels
When bride-to-be, Katie, wrote us about her upcoming wedding, she was curious about beach towel favors but wasn’t sure what kind to give to her guests. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline! I’m looking for where to buy beach towels I can give as wedding favors. We’re getting married in late August and I like the idea of towels that are multi-function as beach towels or wraps. Do you know of any that look fancy enough for a wedding, and if so, where can I get beach towel favors in bulk? Thank you!”
Great question, Katie! Beach towels vs. the kind of towels you can actually give to guests as favors are definitely two different things and we found the perfect choice for you: Turkish towels! These are exactly what you’ll want to give as beach towel party favors.
Turkish towels are more than a standard bath or beach towel, making them a perfect take-home favor for guests. Here’s why.
What is a Turkish Towel Used For?
Turkish towels have an abundance of uses. This is perhaps one of the main reasons to buy beach towel wedding favors for your guests: the unlimited number of places and ways they can use it!
These super-absorbent beach towel favors are used as a…
Wear a towel as a stylish scarf or wrap when running errands on-the-go.
Going to the beach? These beach favors are excellent makeshift sarongs; just wrap a towel around your waist and tuck in.
– blanket for travel
Lightweight and portable, beach towel favors make travel easier for guests. You can stow it away in your carry-on bag and use it as a blanket on a long flight; since they are so travel-friendly, they are an excellent option for both local and destination weddings.
– bath mat
Just fold a turkish towel in half and place in your bathroom to use as a stylish bath mat. It is very absorbent, too. We recommend adding a bit of rubber backing to the bottom, though, for safety and non-slip. :)
– beach blanket
Planning a day at the beach? Guests will grab their favorite wedding favor — yours! — as they head to their favorite sunny + sandy spot to relax, unwind, and take it easy on a comfortable beach blanket that doubles as an absorbent beach towel.
These work extremely well as bachelorette party favors, too, especially if you’re headed to a beach bash like this!
– cozy throw
You can’t exactly throw a beach towel on the back of your favorite easy chair in terms of style, but a Turkish towel? Absolutely! And you’ll be happy to have it for long hours Netflixing on the couch or curling up with a good book.
– hair wrap
With its amazingly absorbent properties, you can use this towel to dry your hair naturally. Just wrap your hair in a turban-style using this towel and let it absorb the excess water. I prefer using this to hairdryers on most days, especially in the summer, since my hair tends to get frizzier if I use a blowdryer.
– hand towel
The smaller beach towel favors — which are really great as hand towels — add so much color and charm to any space!
– picnic blanket
Planning a picnic? Toss the towel in your tote bag, backpack, or picnic basket and find your favorite grassy knoll. This towel truly goes anywhere.
Use as a shawl anytime, anywhere! These make great bridesmaid gifts.
Beach towel favors made of Turkish cotton are more absorbent vs. traditional towels. They are also more stylish and more polished, making Turkish beach towels an easy choice for wedding favors.

I also love the black-and-white style that goes with any outfit (and any wedding theme).

To personalize your towel wedding favors, all you need are the following supplies.
– bulk towel wedding favors
Choose any style, color, or design you like best from the shop here.
– favor tags
You can buy simple “thank you” kraft tags here in bulk for cheap. This particular style also comes with jute twine. I like this style tag because it says, “Thank you for celebrating with us” and features a cut-out heart design, perfect for your wedding. Plus, they’re super affordable.
If your wedding style is less rustic and more modern or traditional, these white tags are a great alternative. You can buy them here.
– twine or ribbon
We recommend twine for a rustic wedding, raffia bundles for a beach wedding, or ribbon for any other style of wedding in your choice of color and finish (satin is the most elegant, but also the most costly)
I’m also loving this luxe ribbon at the moment (shown below) and finding any excuse to use it everywhere! I think it would be a beautiful way to wrap up these towels to give as favors. By LinenLark.
HOW TO ASSEMBLE YOUR WEDDING TOWELS
All you do is roll up a towel tightly, wrap a favor tag around it with ribbon, tie it around your towel, and knot or add a bow to keep it held together. Then place the towels nicely rolled up in a stack on a favors table at your wedding and add a sign so guests know they can take one.
If you prefer, and since they look so beautiful, you can wrap them up and place one at each guest’s seat. Upon finding their seat for dinner, they’ll be greeted by a beautiful towel favor; women may even find themselves using it as a shawl later on in the evening.
COZY UP FAVORS
Some couples plan to buy wedding towel favors to use as wraps for the women in attendance, especially for fall weddings. This can be done easily by wrapping them up as we described above, then placing them in a basket or on a table. We personally love to use large woven baskets like these for our wedding clients, since they can be used for anything after the wedding and they fit many towels inside.
Place or prop a sign like this by FloraSouthDesigns alongside the basket so guests are encouraged to help themselves.
Or this charming rustic sign from DaisyDesignsBespoke, which can be added to any basket of your choice.
