It means a great deal that your friends and family will put their busy lives on hold to be there to celebrate your special day, so why not say “thank you” with a unique wedding favor? Since country weddings are so en vogue (and oh-so-romantic), here are five creative items to gift your wedding guests.
5. Personalized Jar of Honey
These adorable personalized jars of honey from Not on the High Street will put a smile on your guests’ faces and will only run you $13.16 per 18 jars. Include your names and wedding date on the playful “Meant to Bee” label. Honey has an insanely long shelf life and your guests can either use or save this little piece of your wedding day for years. The twine and patterned cloth really set the sweet country theme.
4. Smore’s Kit
Nothing is more country than sitting around a campfire and roasting smores. Get crafty and gift your wedding guests with their very own smores kit. Use plastic wrap to bundle gram crackers, pieces of chocolate (try some gourmet chocolate if you want to get fancy), and marshmallows. Tie the packing together with twine and include sweet little thank you note with a clever pun, the wedding date and you and your spouses names.
3. Gardening Seeds
Fill a rustic wheelbarrow with dirt (or mulch) and stick in bags of gardening seeds. You can choose your favorite flower or tree, something that your guests can take home, plant and enjoy watching grow. Make sure to include a “take one and watch love grow” sign to let your guests know these are their favors! Your wedding day will be sure to live on in memory every time your guest sees their flourishing plant.
2. Popcorn Bar
As your wedding night comes to an end, put out a popcorn bar for your guests to indulge in. Have your friends and family fill their own bags with various kinds of gourmet popcorn and mix-ins (chocolates, candies, etc.) Your guests will not only appreciate the creativity, they’ll also appreciate the yummy midnight snack after all that dancing! TIP: Create custom brown paper bags with your wedding deets on it.
Southern gents will love this one! Try putting out some Makers Mark cigars for your wedding favors. The cigar packaging even features Makers Mark’s signature red dripping wax, which resembles their bourbon bottles.
