Favors are a way to say thank you to your guests, and to give them a gift that will remind them of the special day they shared with you. We understand that you don’t want to give the same old thing that just gets thrown into the junk drawer. We also know that you don’t want to go broke either. So, we’ve searched for new and different wedding favors, even updated a few for you. Here you are.
Fill tiny terra-cotta pots with lavender or another favorite herb. You could even use tiny cactuses. Add nametags to them and they can now double as both favors and escort cards.
Create your own seed packets, fill them full of your favorite blossoms seeds. On the outside attach a small note of thanks. Or have the package read like a thank you note.
Mini Bamboo plants:
Chinese culture states that the bamboo plant is a symbol of good luck, strength and a vessel of positive energy. A big perk, is that when your guests take these home they won’t have to work at keeping the plants alive. They are totally low maintenance, as they need very little sunlight to thrive.
Small soaps bundled up in a sachet would make beautiful favors. Place them inside a simple basket near the exit so that guests may pick these up as they leave. You may not want to place them at the dinner table, especially if the scent is strong. You don’t really want to be overwhelmed by perfumes while eating.
Fill small squeezable containers with a homemade lotion or some of your favorite store bought brand. Decorate with cute personalized labels.
Buy miniature glass or clear plastic containers and fill with bath salts. Add a small scoop to use for sprinkling the salts into the bath. (We’re thinking those heart shaped measuring spoons!) Cover them with homemade labels and tie off with raffia.
