Five Simple Ways To Add A Personal Touch to Your Wedding Favors

Weddings are truly a memorable affair not just for the wedded couple but also for everyone who attends. Taking your vows in front of your guests, who are likely your family and close friends, makes the celebration more special.

Express your gratitude through your wedding favors. While you can always stick to traditional and generic ones, it’s always more sincere if they’re personalized.


Add a personal touch to your thank-you gifts, and your guests will surely keep them even when the wedding festivities are over.

Don’t know how to do it? Be inspired by these five unique ideas.

  1. Succulents That Lead the Way

Succulents make a cute desk and home decor, they are therefore the perfect wedding favors. They’re small, easy to carry, and low-maintenance. Guests will never miss them in the venue and forget to take them home (unless they’re too tipsy from all that wine).

Personalize your succulents by engraving your and your partner’s initials on the pot. You can also double them as seating arrangements. Simply stick a flag with a guest’s name on it. Place them atop your tables, and it won’t disrupt your aesthetic at all.

  1. Maracas to Dance the Night Away

Surely, your guests won’t have a pair of maracas lying about in their homes. Give them one and they’ll keep it for sure. You can buy in bulk from a local supplier and personalize them to your liking.

You can get your maracas engraved with your names or wedding hashtag. But if you’re not keen on the additional cost, you can simply tie a tag around them with a thank-you script.


Think about it—they can even use their wedding favors as props during the reception or the after-party or on a dance number during the office Christmas party.

  1. Light Up Their Lives with Mini Candles

Candles are a classic wedding favor, and they’re well received every time. Stand out from tradition, and choose ones with unique designs. They may be in the form of sunflowers or cupcakes, or you customize them more by giving out candles that form your and your spouse’s initials.

Scented candles also make great thank-you presents. It’s always relaxing to light one after a tiring day or during a long bath.


They’re especially memorable if you add a personal note of gratitude to the packaging. Just make sure to choose a custom box that’s still personalized to fit your wedding theme.

  1. Bottle Openers for Those Boozy Nights 

Bottle openers as wedding favors are a no-brainer. People always lose theirs at home, so they make perfect gifts.

You can buy them at the local store or order customized ones to make them more sophisticated and special. While you’re at it, get your and your spouse’s names engraved on the tool. If you have a smaller guest list, you can even put each of their names in the item as well.

Bottle openers make a great conversation starter. Reminisce your “single life” with friends when all you did was drink and party till dawn. Bid that life adieu as you move on to a marriage.

  1. Let Love Grow with Seed Packets

You don’t need to be an environmentalist to give out seed packets on your wedding day. Seeds are a one-of-a-kind gift that your guests will appreciate and use.

Choose seeds that are easy to plant and grow. Whether it be flowers, trees, or vegetables, it’s up to you. You can even pack random seeds as a surprise to your guests. Just make sure to place instructions on how to grow and care for them.


Seed packets are not simply a thoughtful wedding giveaway; they are also symbols of your love that’s still starting to grow and blossom even more. These will also encourage your friends and family to develop a green thumb and find their own blossoming love as well.

Your own creativity is your limit when coming up with your wedding favors. Find great suppliers that can cater to your specific needs. But if you’ve got some artistic skills right up your sleeve, there’s always the option to DIY your giveaways. Your efforts will surely be appreciated.
