Instead of giving your guests just another bottle opener to bring back home, opt for something they can consume during your wedding weekend. “A favor to get the party started—tiny bottles of Patron tequila,” suggests Alexandra Swanson of Archive Rentals.

"Favors are a great way to share something personal with your guests. We always recommend something that is a favorite of the couple or something that is customizable,” suggests Jennifer Williger of HoneyFitz Events. In this case, the couple opted for mini versions of their favorite treats created by SoCal-based bakery Hello Sweetie Pies.

“What’s better than a favor that is both practical and well packaged?! We love these wood boxes, hand-crafted by the groom and filled with the couple's favorite wines, a warm blanket for their al fresco dinner, and an air plant for the guest's home,” says Jaime Kostechko of Wild Heart Events.

"Favors that you can eat or drink are big winners, but so are favors related to eating and drinking,” says Kawania Wooten of Howerton+Wooten Events. “Little gifts like wine-bottle stoppers and crab mallets can be used long after your wedding is over, and your guests will think of you fondly every time they use them."

This wedding was the epitome of rustic elegance—long farm tables, twisted vines wrapped around Sperry tent poles, intimate seating, soft lighting, and florals spilling out onto the tables. Needless to say, the couple’s wedding favors fit the theme perfectly.

Points for Hospitality
"Our favorite trend is when couples give a breakfast-in-bed combo like a box with a couple of doughnuts and an iced coffee, scones and locally made jam, or croissants and OJ. We also love sneaking things into the guest's hotel room if it's a destination wedding, like cookies and milk for a late-night treat,” adds Beth Helmstetter, owner and creative director of Beth Helmstetter Events.

Stirring up All the Feels
"For the couple that runs on caffeine, customized spoons can be a favor that checks off both the cute and practical categories! There are plenty of Etsy shops where you can purchase ones with fun sayings, or you can connect with a store that lets you create your own phrases. They're easy to fit into a purse, as well as pack for the trip home and then guests can think of you anytime they add a spoonful of sugar to their morning coffee," says Emily Sullivan of Emily Sullivan Events
