Flavorful Favor Boxes
Favor boxes are an easy and thoughtful way to show a small token of your appreciation to your cherished wedding guests, especially those who made long journeys to your destination wedding. It may be a daunting task to think of favors that thank your guests for spending time – and sometimes money – to share in your memories. Have no fear! Here is a short list of ideas that will leave a lasting impression on your guests:
- Themed Favor Boxes– If you’re into the idea of a themed wedding, why not include the theme in your favor boxes? For example, if you’re having a garden or nature themed wedding, try a small satchel of assorted flower seeds. They make a great gift that keeps on giving. Imagine how beautiful those forget-me-not’s will look, ensuring your guests “ forget-you-not” every time they see the flowers in bloom.
- Favor Box of Memories- Give guests boxes filled with a collection of memorable favors to help keep the celebration of your big day alive. A small key chain, with a photo of the bride and groom on one side and a simple “Thank You” with the date of the wedding on the back makes a lovely everyday keepsake. Better yet, if your favor boxes are big enough, you may want to include a disposable camera, giving the guests a chance to capture their own special memories of your wedding day.
- Kiddie Favor Boxes- Reward the little ones who sat through your ceremony without wondering down the aisle with a kiddie box! A small toy, a balloon (in your wedding colors of course), candies, or a small bottle of blowing bubbles are a few cute ways to keep a busy body, well, busy! You could also add crayons to your kiddie box and place a small coloring book at their place setting to give them something to do while adults are busy listening to wedding toasts.
- Destination Favor Boxes– Take inspiration from your idyllic destination wedding location to customize your favors. Collect seashells from the beach, purchase locally made shell bracelets or a tiny jar of local jams or preserves from the gift shop for your guests to take home with them as a memory of the trip. If you’re set on candies, see if you can find a local sweets shop to add a local flavor to your candy selection. Mmm… Coconut toffee, anyone?
