11 Wedding Favors Your Guests Will Love

Wedding favors are usually small in size but can become a big part of your budget! I am a firm believer that wedding favors should be something that your guests can eat or actually use. If not, your favor will end up getting tossed by your guest!

Favors show guests your appreciation for taking time to celebrate your special day! Set up a beautiful favor table for a classy touch at any wedding or incorporate your favors into your table decor.

In today’s post, I’ll be sharing some of the most popular wedding favors for weddings with a large or small budget. And, I promise that all of these favors will be useful or edible!

1. Snacks and Candy

My husband and I did Swedish Fish candy in cellophane bags for our wedding favors and most of our guests told us they enjoyed them on the way home! Score! I love these His Favorite/Her Favorite” stickers so that guests can have a choice! Buying snacks and candies in bulk helps to save a ton of money and makes this one of the most cost effective (and delicious) favors out there!
