Every beautiful wedding deserves to have equally beautiful wedding favors. These keepsakes are the newlyweds’ way of thanking their guests. Here are 10 beautiful and creative wedding favors:
You will never go wrong with edible wedding favors. If you think chocolates are just too common, try French macaroons instead. A macaroon is a meringue-based sweet treat. Macaroons have become popular in the wedding industry for the following reasons:
- Macaroons can come in many flavors you can choose from.
- Macaroons can easily match your wedding color palette.
- Macaroons can be more interesting by adding unique textures and embellishments like fruits and candies.
- Macaroons are never boring.
- Macaroons look lovely packed in a French jar or acetate box. Just add a unique tag with the couple’s initials.
- Macaroons are not heavy on the budget. You can get them at only $21 a dozen.
Giving away a pack of seeds as wedding favor is a great way to let your guests enjoy something that will last longer than chocolates and other edible items. Give your guests seeds of the flowers you had on your wedding day. These seeds will provide a token of the couple’s love for each other that blossomed and continues to grow. Seed packets will not break your wedding budget. You can get them at only $.25 each at http://weddingpackets.com/.
If you want an elegant wedding favor, give away scented candles on your wedding day. Bitter Willoughby offers customized scented candles. For just $195 you can have 100 pieces of sweet scented candles. You can choose the scents and the label fonts and colors.
Mini Potted Plants
Go green on your wedding day! Give your guests a gift that tolerates harsh weather. You can incorporate these beautiful and juicy creatures to any part of your wedding party. Regardless of whether your guests have green thumbs or not, these ornamental plants can stay alive and take the heat for a very long time.

Beach in a Bottle
Having a beach wedding? There’s no better way to make your guests remember your most special day by giving them with real sand straight from the beach. The bride and groom-to-be can even do this as their DIY project together. It is a romantic idea of bonding time! If the whole wedding preparation is too overwhelming and the couple doesn’t have time to make these tokens of their own, you can get them from Morgan the Creator for only $2.50 each.
Love Songs CD
This is one perfect idea for musical couples getting married. Make a very romantic wedding favor by burning a collection of the couple’s favorite songs or the songs played during the wedding into a CD and placing it in a custom CD cover. Order customized CD covers from Sweet Sights for only $125 for a set of 50. Photo courtesy of http://www.brides.com/.

These custom wedding fans with engraved wooden handles from General Supply Co are just $75 for a set of 20. They have super pretty hand sewn bunting.

Have something ready in case some eyes well up with tears. Vintage inspired hankies are perfect wedding favors. You can buy a set of 4 at Twining Vines for only $30.
