Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Favors

Welcome to Wednesday Wedding Inspirations! 
Today I will be continuing a weekly series where I share ideas and inspirations for anyone who is planning a wedding, or anyone who just loves everything about weddings. Last week, I posted about wedding gowns so if you missed can check it out here

This week I will be sharing some ideas on some creative, fun and budget friendly favors. 
Favors are a great way to give a little thanks to your guests for making it out to your big well as to have some fun and really showcase who you and your man are as a couple. 

My hubby and I love a good night out with friends and some these favors are right up our alley! 

Feel free to click on any of the photos throughout this post to be redirected to the source of the photos :) 
A cheaper alternative to this would be to buy your own shot glasses from discount stores such as Ross, TJ Maxx, Homegoods, etc. You could put your own sayings on the glass using vinyl, or you could just go ahead and fill them with candy.

Champagne and OJ 

I definitely love this one. We are both beer lovers.

Here are some cute and 'random' favors:

You can find a ton of super cute and customizable already made favors from Etsy. This option will save you a ton of time and stress, but can also be very pricy.

If you're like me and on a tight budget, here are some more ideas:

You could also change the label 'Love is Sweet'

I've also seen others who make a donation to their favorite charity in the guest's name. An option could be to choose 2 or 3 of your favorite charities, give guests a 'kiss or hugs' candy when they sign in, then they can choose which charity they'd like you to donate to on their behalf. 

These photos were taken from a friend's wedding :) She is super crafty and creative!! 

What are/were your wedding favors? Any advice/tips for me on favors? I'd love some advice!! 
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Interesting share. Creating the DIY favors for the wedding can be time consuming but you can get some cute favors for your guests at very reasonable rates. If the budget is a little high then getting the customized ones is also possible. At the local venues in Chicago we attended a wedding and got pretty photo frames that had couple’s name carved in the corner.
