So, you want to express your gratitude to your wedding guests for being part of one of the most memorable and special days of your life, but where to start? There are a lot of ways to say thanks to them, but one of the most common ways is by giving whats called a “wedding favor”. Wedding favors originally started as a passing of good luck from the lucky couple to their guests. Nowadays, favors are handed out as mementos of the occasion so guests have something to remember the day by. That being said, the majority of wedding favors are quite lame, so we tried to wrangle up some interesting ideas for you to try that your guests won’t hate. So don’t stress – to help you decide, here are some of the best wedding favor ideas that will surely impress your guests.
Make It Memorable
Weddings are a once in a lifetime event for the couple, but not your guests. Make sure they have something special to remember your wedding day by!
Make It Scalable
Remember your guest list when thinking of wedding favor ideas. Anything too large may be difficult to transport to the venue and adequately set up before the ceremony or dinner.
Pass On Initials
If your wedding favor is unique enough, there will be no need to brand your initials on your gift. Adding initials makes most gifts unusable in the future for your guests.
1. Custom Fortune Cookies
Personalize the message inside of a fortune cookie to share words of love with your guests that they are soon not to forget. The small strip of paper that comes with the cookie is also easy to store and keep as a reminder in a wallet or purse, or even taped to a computer screen or kept on the fridge.
2. Tasty Candy & Treat Take-Home Bar
Perfect for couples with a sweet tooth, set up your own candyland bar where guests can self-serve their own favorite candies into bags to take home with them.

4. Customized Flash Drives
Send your guests home with a custom, pre-loaded flash drive or USB stick with lovely personal memories, photos, PDFs of the wedding menu and ceremony guide, and more! Once your guests copy over what they want to keep, they also have a back-up USB stick for future use.
