I'm a lover of love who is addicted to Starbucks and goes through weekly phases of favorite foods. I'm a wifey to a firefighter and a dogmom to a grumpy Whippet. I love having lunch dates and dream of traveling the world.

Favors Your Guests Will Love- Wedding Planning Tips

Remember when you used to go to a wedding and there were little heart shaped tins full of those pastel mints or m+m’s? I can’t even tell you how many of those little tins I collected as a kid!

Thankfully, there are a lot more options these days. You can make your favors as simple or as elaborate as you’d like. And there are about a million and a half ways to add your personalities into what you choose!

Here are some fun ideas:

  • Salty and sweet treats. Think pretzels and chocolate. Potato chips and gummy bears. Salted caramel truffles
  • Little terracotta pots with a succulent or herbs
  • A wine glass, pilsner glass, or shot glass with each person’s name etched in it
  • Personalized bags of coffee beans
  • Macaroons, custom cut out cookies, or other gourmet pastry
  • Unique candle scents (you can even make them yourself!)
  • Local honey or jams
  • Flower or herb seeds
  • Pretty bottles of olive oil
