As you plan your big day, you’re putting careful thought into each and every element of your wedding day. And when it comes to wedding favors, you don’t want to give your guests something that ends up in the junk drawer…come on, we know you’re guilty of doing this!

So, instead of boring gifts, give your guests one of the following and ensure they will enjoy their favors for years to come. 


1. Wedding Favor Flower Seeds

If you’re chosen wedding flower is a fairly easy-to-grow plant, give your guests some seeds to grow their own in their gardens. This is a great favor to bring your guests back to your special day through sight and smell. If you’re planning on an abundance of flowers at your wedding, then seeds are a special and thoughtful gift your guests can enjoy for many years (especially if the flower is a perennial).

4. Personalized Can Koozie 

Can Koozies are an inexpensive gift that can display not only your initials as a couple but also a fun phrase and your wedding colors. There’s a lot of room on a can koozie for personalization. If your guests like their beverages ice cold during the hot summer months, can koozies are a no-brainer.

5. Photo Booth Prints Wedding Favors

Our favorite and most personalized keepsakes are wedding photo booth prints. It doesn’t get more personal than actual photos from your big day. Prints are often immediate and using a photo booth as your wedding favor can give your guests some control over what they take home with them. 

Personalizing your template and backdrop will remind your guests whose wedding they were at when they look at the photos and remember how much fun they had…because your wedding was (will be) epic. 

Adding your wedding date to your photo booth templates, and other physical wedding keepsakes will keep your anniversary front and center year after year. This means your guests will remember to send you well wishes on your anniversary.
