Rustic Succulent Filled Colorado Wedding With A Pretzel Bar – Sara Lynn 49

Oh, how I love gift giving. Surprising loved ones with thoughtful presents to show your love – is there a better feeling? When your friends & family are attending one of the biggest days in your life, we’d say that’s worth a “thank you” no matter how big or small.

Wedding favor shopping, however, can be tricky. They can be expensive, complicated & time-consuming to put together and then there’s the “will our guests actually want to bring these home?” factor. To be frank, having photographed over 100 weddings in the last decade, I rarely take-home favors due to size or my own preoccupation partying late into the night.

Then there’s the destination wedding factor – you’ll want to think of gifts that don’t take up too much space in guests’ suitcases – think local items like olive oils & jams in mini sizes that fit in toiletry bags.

As one of those pesky favor-forgetting guests, I’m here to help advise you of which kinds of favors actually do get taken home on the reg and most importantly – where to find them.

Rustic Joy Soap

The key to a good favor in my book is something your guests will actually use, rather than collecting dust on a shelf. That can be food items & seed packets like above, or how about fabulous handmade soap?

We’d love to get our hands on Rustic Joy Soap’s homemade bars, and we bet your guests would, too! Just like the rest of our items on our list, the bars come with customizable labels & offer so many choices when it comes to colors, fragrances & textures like Red Wine or Dead Sea Exfoliant.

Best of all, they come in minis! So you can gift your guests a size that fits in their wedding-day clutch purse.

The Longest Thread

My favorite favor I’ve been gifted at a wedding was a cozy blanket draped over my reception chair to stay warm into the night. As a perpetually cold person, not only is this super thoughtful (after all, I’ll party longer if warm!) but it’s a gift that keeps on giving in your guests’ homes & along their travels.

These Turkish towel style blankets from The Longest Thread are versatile – you can use them as blankets & beach towels – and come at a discount when bought in bulk. I’ve kept mine gifted at a Moroccan wedding for ten years and packed it in my carry-on purse for every flight I’ve taken since.
