A Unique Wedding Favor
For the Uncommon Wedding
A unique wedding favor sets your wedding a part from all the
others. You are not the common couple. You want something that is different.
How will you do this? Hopefully we can help get your wheels turning by
giving you some examples of unique wedding favors we have seen while
planning and running weddings.
Try to think of unique ideas that match your wedding theme
example, if your wedding is tied to a season, like fall
use that as motivation and a way to narrow down choices.
Here are seven ideas to get you started:
- Gourmet candy apples are a
fun idea. These are not the candy apples that you had as a kid. Today
candy apples are covered in chocolate, and they can easily be decorated
to match the colors of your wedding.
- If you are having a summer
wedding, consider giving your guests fans to help cool off (below).
- Some couples are opting to donate the money they would have
spent on favors to charity instead. Simply pick a charity, decide on
the amount per guest and print up some cards to put on the tables at
JustGive.org and idofoundation.org are two great resources for charity favors.
- A candy buffet is a great way
to end your wedding and satisfy your guest's sweet tooth. Pick out five
or six different types of chocolate (caramels, truffles, etc.), and
have them set out in bins at the end of the reception.
Get monogrammed bags printed, and your guests can fill them up for the
- Probably the most unique wedding favor that we have seen
was when a couple rented an old fashioned photo booth.
You know, like the ones you used sit in at the mall with your friends
that gives you six photos in a strip.
The guests kept three, and the other three were put into an album that
the guests could sign and write a note to the newlyweds.
- Mint Julep cups (below) can be
used for both the
centerpiece and as favors. Put four or five cups in the center of the
table with flowers for your centerpiece. At the end of the reception,
each couple then gets to take home one of the cups. They can even be
engraved with your names and wedding date.
- If you are having a destination wedding or a wedding in a
unique location, try to find unique items from the local area or
something that ties in with the unique location.
For example, if you are having a wedding in an old train station that
is now an art gallery, try to find a wedding favor tied to art or
