There are a variety of items you can distribute to your guests as favors. Some suggestions are traditional, and some are more creative. We hope you will find this extensive list helpful.

Consumable Favors:Many couples are hosting a candy buffet made available to their guests at the reception. The couples also provide carry-out bags or boxes (the mini Chinese takeout boxes are so cute for this!) so guests can take some treats with them.
Personalized mint tins.
Coffee or Tea sets/sachets/packets.
Wedding Cake Cookies
Muffin Mix
Specialty foods that are local to your wedding destination (i.e. BBQ sauce, Kona Coffee, etc.)
Candy-filled trinkets, including:
2” plastic tropical fish cups or flamingo cups filled with something small like jellybeans, mints, etc. The catalog “Oriental Trading Company” sells these.
Tropical fish or palm tree cellophane bags to hold candy or other treats.
A plastic wedding bell filled with sugar-coated almonds. You can even paint the name of the guest and the table information on it. You can also paint your names and wedding date on it.
Chocolate covered macadamia nuts (many of our clients place these in lauhala boxes tied with a pretty ribbon).
Chocolate sweetheart boxes filled with chocolates. Call 800-422-6393.
Chocolate roses. You can wrap a ribbon with your wedding information around it.
Chocolate Candy bars in personalized wrappers displaying your wedding information.
Personalized Fortune Cookies. A company called “Good Fortunes” has fortune cookies with personalized messages in them. There are other treats available, so call 800-644-9474.

Personalized playing cards.
Coasters (Photo Coasters, thematic coasters)
A CD of some of your favorite tunes. The cover can be a photo of you.
Luggage Tags for a destination wedding
Specialized bottle openers (wine bottle shape, heart shape, key shape)
Many couples are renting photo booths at their weddings. Guests can take photos in them and keep them as their guest favors. These also function as guest books if you have a scrapbook for the copies of photos.
Island Treat Creations provides a wonderful assortment of consumable items in local style containers.
Ice Cream Scoop to represent the wedding couples who love ice cream
Personalized Champagne Flutes or Wine Glasses for use at the wedding and to keep
Flip Flops for the beach wedding
Postcards for them to send to friends and family back home from your destination location.
If you are assigning seats at your reception, you may use some of these items as a party favor and a “place card.”
Sand pail candles or place card holders
A small tin or terracotta planter, either plain or painted, with a plant or without. You can fill it with candy, as well. You can also paint the name of the guest on the side of the pot, the table name or number on the bottom, your names and the wedding date.
For a December wedding you may want to give your guests glass ornaments with the name of the guest painted on each. You can also paint your names and the wedding date. This is very inexpensive, as plain glass ornaments are usually under $1.00 each.
Beach Themed candles such as pineapple candles, coconut candles, seashell candles, etc.
16 ounce plastic coconut cups or pineapple cups. You can personalize these by writing the name of your guest on each, as well as the table name or number on the bottom. You can also write your names and the wedding date. The catalog “Oriental Trading Company” sells these. There is a hole for a straw. These can also be used at the wedding. The guests can have the bartenders fill them with the drinks they order.
Personalized glassware/stemware
Drink Stemware charms are the perfect substitute for a place card that doubles as a wedding favor. You can even get these in your wedding colors!
Plastic sun visors. The catalog “Oriental Trading Company” sells these by the dozen. They come in assorted colors, and have a foam lining. You can write the name of your guest, your names and the wedding date.
Wine Stoppers (you can even find these in your theme design, such as seashells)
Beach towels. These can be relatively inexpensive when bought at wholesale places, such as Costco. You can have them embroidered with your names and the wedding date, as well as a picture logo.
Outdoor weddings can start out warm but turn into a chilly evening. This bride provided guests with pashminas in her wedding color theme.
Votive candles and holders. These can be personalized and used as table décor/place holders/favors. Very multifunctional.
Potpourri sachets. You can buy these ready-made, or you can put them together yourself. If you want to have your wedding information on it, you can tie a personalized ribbon with your names and wedding date imprinted on it.
Seed packet place cards. Buy packets of flower or vegetable seeds. You can make labels on your computer with your wedding information and guest information on them, then place each label on each packet.
Miniature picture frames. You can put a picture of you as a couple in it, or you can put a sheet of paper with the guest name and table assignment in it. These cost approximately $6.00 each.
A scrolled parchment scroll with a poem thanking your guests for attending written on it.
Little plastic champagne or wine bottles filled with bubble bath. Some are even filled with cider. The label of the bottle is personalized with your names and the wedding date. A few companies provide these, including 619-273-5695 and 800-752-2505.
