Why are these personalized wedding favors perfect for your wedding?

Personalized wedding favors tip: We looked for things that are practical and can be used long after the wedding.

1. Lip balm

In their colorful balls they almost look like candy, but inside it’s practical lip balm. Who knew putting on lip balm could be this fun? Also consider types with sunscreen depending on the climate.

2. Water bottles

Keep your guests hydrated! Water bottles are something everyone should use. Whether it’s plastic or vacuum-sealed metal, water bottles come in handy!

3. Sunglasses

Having a destination wedding in Hawaii? Going to Malibu to get hitched? No matter where you are, if it’s summer, shades are an item that will make your guests comfortable and it’s something they can use throughout the season. Find shades to match your wedding colors!

4. Portable stadium blankets

Keeps your guests warm at outdoor events and doubles as a useful souvenir. Add the last name of the couple and the date in an elegant font to personalize.

5. Flip flops

Find your wedding colors! Then have the couple’s names and/or wedding date printed on the side straps. Perhaps the last names of the couple: one on either side. First names work too!

6. Umbrellas

A practical item that almost everyone needs and almost everyone loses somewhere. Just hope you don’t have to use them that day! Get the folding kind so people can conveniently stow them in their suitcases.

7. Tote bags

Emblazon with the couple’s name, place, and wedding date. Other bag options include drawstring bags, drawstring backpacks, or grocery tote bags. Fanny packs are also back in style this year!

Personalized wedding favors tip: We looked for things that would make your guests feel special.

8. Luggage tags

Luggage tags are great for destination weddings. Add a digital image to personalize it. Consider an Instagram photo. When all of your guests get to the same hotel with matching tags, it builds a camaraderie among friends and relatives who don’t know each other. This is especially nice if not everyone on both sides of the family has met.

9. Instagram coasters

You’ve taken hundreds of beautiful shots of sunsets. Don’t just look at them for two seconds never to appreciate them again! Instead, make them into a coaster. If you’re the couple, take some fun but sweet shots of yourselves. Or, if you’re having the wedding in your city, take shots of touristy things so that out-of-town company have something to take home as a souvenir of both the wedding and the city. It will remind them of their fabulous time in your town and link it to the moment in time when you said your vows.

Personalized wedding favors tip: Everyone eats and drinks!

10. Bottle openers

Bottle openers are utilitarian. Unless wine and beer go completely twist off, people will need these. Cheers!

11. Beverage insulators

Great to use at the wedding – and ever after.

12. Shot glasses

Shot glasses are the ultimate souvenir. Your friends who collect them will thank you. Your guests may raise a glass at your reception, but who are you to stop them if they want to continue to celebrate your union? Find your wedding colors and write the couples’ last names and wedding date.

13. Mugs

Everyone uses mugs. While they’re drinking their morning coffee they can remember the special day. Make one with you and your spouse’s names on them. Perhaps you could even feature a picture of you and your future spouse drinking coffee on the side?

14. Candy-filled mugs

Even better!

15. Plant in a cup

Plants represent growth and new life. It’s the perfect metaphor for a wedding. Consider a potted plant, vegetable, or herb. Succulents also make for great desk decorations. Your guests will thank you! <http://www.promoplace.com/trmctaggart/p/TVLDC-GXBNO/bamboo-blossom-kit>

16. Nuts

Take a ceramic cup, fill with mixed nuts, and wrap with cellophane and tie a bow with jute twine. Nuts are always a hit and the mug can be used later for beverages, pencils, or a re-fill of nuts!

Personalized wedding favors tip: Fun and practical win the race for some of the best party favors.

17. Mug cake

Make a cake in ceramic mugs using the microwave. It doubles as a container for cake and then it can be used for your guests’ coffee for years to come! Or, of course, they can always make more cake in the mug too! Make sure the mug you select is microwave safe.

18. Kristin and Company candles

Choose an earthy aroma or a scent correlated with the season you’re celebrating. Customize with a label including the couple, place, and date. Try something exotic like lemongrass sage!

19. Key chains

Label the key chain with the couple’s name and snappy saying. For example, a millennial pink keychain with “Sunny with a chance of rosé” on Martha Stewart’s wedding ideas website is classy and funny at the same time. What can you come up with? Also consider key chains with flashlights or that double as bottle openers. Then they’re personalized and serve two functions! Extra points!

Personalized wedding favors tip: A little thought goes a long way.

20. Regional souvenirs

Everyone wants to bring a souvenir home. Why not make it extra special? Make it specific to the city of the ceremony.

Add Your Own Touch

Seemingly mundane or generic items can be made elegant and special if you add an extra touch. For example, add a fern leaf and ‘thank you’ tag to an item to make it distinct.

How to make your wedding memorable for you and your guests

Personalized wedding favors allow guests to bring the fun home and serve as everyday reminders of cherished memories.

In sum, great wedding party favors:

1. Make it personal

3. Get extra points if it’s useful at the wedding and at home!
