Offering your wedding guests a small favor to thank them for their attendance is a simple courtesy...
You don't need to leave an expensive trinket on the table to thank them, but it's nice to offer something by way of thanks.
Be a little creative and you can find plenty of ideas to make your own homemade wedding favors.
It's curious to note that at many weddings, the mass-produced store-bought favors are usually the ones still sitting on tables after all the guests have left.
Thoughtful, personalized homemade wedding favors are always the ones that are appreciated, enjoyed or taken home by your guests.
Below are some ideas for homemade wedding favors your guests can enjoy, followed by some interesting videos and last minute ideas.
Offering seeds as homemade wedding favors suggests new growth, the same way your wedding represents the growth of a new family and the start of your new lives together.
Seeds can be put to good use by the majority of your guests. Those who don't plant them will often take them home for people they know to benefit from them too.
When you choose your wedding favor seeds, try to choose something that guests can either enjoy or appreciate, but it should also be something very simple to grow, like wildflowers, herbs, ornamental grasses or vegetables.
Remember to print out some simple planting and care instructions so your guests will know what to do with the seeds and how best to care for them.
Your options for presenting your seeds is limited only by your imagination and creativity!
If you're on a tight budget, then wedding cookie favors can be a big hit with your guests and they'll help keep your spending limit under your control. Cookies are easy to make yourself and most people just love the smell and the taste of freshly baked cookies.
Find some basic drop cookie recipes that you can amend to suit your tastes. The base cookie recipe for a simple chocolate chip drop cookie recipe can easily be changed by taking out the chocolate chips and adding M&Ms or white chocolate chips or walnut pieces or macadamias. This way you can make batches so your guests can choose their favorites.
