Wedding favors are a sweet way to thank your guests for celebrating and sharing this special day with you and can serve as a keepsake that the guests hold onto to remember the day.
There are endless wedding favor ideas to choose from – from edible to keepsakes, expensive to inexpensive, as well as store-bought to do it yourself.
Whatever you choose, how big or little, it is a sweet way to share your appreciation.
DIY Wedding Favors
Are you looking to make DIY wedding favors? Doing it yourself is an excellent way to help cut costs and keep you on budget. Wedding favors are also a task you could delegate. Invest the help of your crafty Aunt or close family friend, and give them the wedding favor idea, and have them craft them together. Or, gather together some of your crafty family members or friends, and make an evening of assembling wedding favors.
Here are a few DIY wedding favor ideas:
