Welcome Bags

A nice touch when your guests check into the hotel is a collection of essentials to last the wedding weekend. Throwing an outdoor ceremony? Add personalized sunglasses or a paper fan. Open bar? Aspirin or instant coffee makes sure guests attend the next morning’s brunch. Customized drinkware and bar accessories are also popular gift bag fillers. Once your bags are assembled, drop them off at the front desk so they can be given to your guest as they check-in.

Candy Bar

If a traditional wedding cake isn’t your thing, a self-service candy bar is an easy, fun and interactive option. Fill apothecary jars and glass dishes with delicious treats and some personalized goodies that coordinate with your wedding theme. Provide paper bags or boxes so guests can fill them with their favorites. Your guests will feel like kids in a candy shop!

After-party Treats

Giving guests an edible wedding favor as they leave your reception is another wedding favor trend we love. After-party treats could be as simple as a few personalized chocolates or mints, or you can get more creative by sharing a favorite local snack or Grandma’s famous cookies. Pack them in a to-go box and guest are sure to end the party on a (sugary) high note.  Another cute idea? Turn these into your seating cards by writing names and table numbers on the outside of the container.

The best part about wedding favors is that they are totally up to you and the options are seemingly endless! Which idea is your favorite? Browse our assortment for favors for every wedding event, from your engagement party to your bachelorette weekend.
