To Give or Not To Give Favors?

Favors tend to be either a must have or something easily cut when it comes to weddings and events. When making that decision here are some questions to ask yourself first!

Plus! Some great options to consider if you decide favors are for you!

Should you have favors for your guests, here are a few things you ask yourself when deciding:

  • Are you saying thank you to your guests for attending in another way? Photo booth, samples of something, etc.

  • Would it be beneficial to leave a lasting impact on your guests? a.k.a. Remember your event down the road.

  • Would a little something at each place setting complete your look and/or theme?

  • Would a little something be a great “night cap” as your guests leave?

  • Does a little something play up on your theme or personal aspect that is important to you?

So if you said yes to any of these we recommend considering favors, do some research and see what fits your budget.

Here are some great ideas from


Hosting your special occasion at a winery or love wine? Here are two great favors!

Even consider adding a wine tasting or make your specialty drink your favorite wine to pair up with this favor option!


What we love about this favor is the versitiality! The functionality is a keyring + bottle opener.

The look can pair with the new adventure of newlyweds, it can mark the milestone for a business or organization (grand opening or new building).

There are so many options with this favor and it’s presentation!


Not into having a favor for everyone, but looking for entertainment aside from wedding traditions?

Que games!

Yep add games to your wedding and what better way than decks of cards for guests to pick up at any time. This deck is so cute with it’s “All In” box!


Having a photo booth? We find these are becoming a standard at weddings and events!

Let’s amp up the gift to your guests more than that strip of pictures.

These cute magnetic frames are the perfect add-on to your photo booth for each guest, or couple, at your wedding! Best of all they come in a set of 3, so break them up per guest or give as a trio!
