Wedding favors are a fun way to send your guests home with a little memento of your special day. Some couples opt for a practical favor that guests can use for years to come, and other couples choose something deliciously sweet that won’t last the car ride home. If you’ve begun researching ideas for the perfect wedding favor, the options can seem endless! We’ve rounded up a few fun wedding favor ideas for all styles and budgets.

Customized Bottle Openers

This pocket-sized favor is perfect for laid back couples that want to keep the party going long after the night has ended. Go with a classic design like a simple and stylish bottle opener engraved with your wedding date, or go the creative route and choose an opener that symbolizes you as a couple. For instance, if you and your fiance are avid cyclists, choose a bicycle shaped bottle opener for an extra personalized touch!

Sweet Treats From Your Favorite Bakery

If there’s one wedding favor that flies off the table, it’s a perfectly packaged sweet treat from a local bakery. Macarons from Marche de Macarons, cookies from Byrd Cookie Company, gourmet chocolates from Savannah’s Candy Kitchen, and even homemade cupcakes can be dressed up with chic bakery boxes and colorful ribbons for a gorgeous addition to reception tables. Many guests are too busy tearing up the dance floor to grab a slice of wedding cake, so a delicious to-go favor is an easy way to ensure their sweet tooth is satisfied. Plus, homemade treats make easy DIY wedding favors!

Live Caricature Drawings

Here’s an interactive favor that your guests will get a kick out of – a live caricature artist! Hire a local Savannah artist for the reception who can create silly drawings of your guests that will have them laughing all night long. A caricature station is a great way to add a little something extra to your wedding reception without anything going to waste at the end of the night. Plus, it’s a great conversation starter and the perfect activity for guests who aren’t fans of dancing. 

Late Night Snack Station

Set up a to-go station with your favorite sweets and savory snacks, then let your guests go crazy packing up a goodie bag or box to take home. Display colorful candies and chocolates on one end of the table and fill the other side with salty pretzels and savory popcorn flavors. For an extra special touch, customize your gift bags or boxes with your wedding colors or wedding date. This elevated goodie bag will give your guests the best of both worlds –– sweet and salty!

Fresh Georgia Peaches

For couples looking for an elegant and traditional favor, send your guests home with a fresh, juicy Georgia peach! If you’re getting married inside of Red Gate Farm’s Barn or Grainery, a fruit stand filled with fresh peaches from the Forsyth Farmers’ Market also duels as adorable and rustic wedding reception decor. Stack up wooden crates and garnish with twinkle lights and hay, and fill them to the brim with ripe Georgia peaches. Peach stands look gorgeous photographed too, so don’t be surprised if this wedding favor ends up on Instagram!
