Favors your guests will LOVE!

I am often asked on whether wedding favors are necessary.  In short...yes.  After all, many of your guests have attended at least one of your showers, many have traveled to see you on your special day and most have forked over the cash to buy you a gift.  In my opinion, you should find some little way to thank them.

Favors can come in many sizes and dollar signs. You can go simple with a little piece of chocolate..maybe the sweetest thank you:)  Or, you can go all out.  No matter what, your guest will appreciate the jester!

I love coming across favors that are useful.  Your guests will hang on to these favors for many years to come and always think back to your special day. Here are my fav picks!

Olive Oil..great idea especially for an Italian or rustic themed wedding.  Other ideas are wine, honey and vinaigrette's! Ciao!

Love these colorful luggage tags.  These can also double as escort cards!  Perfect for a destination wedding or travel themed wedding!

Bottle openers from the vineyard worked both as weights to keep the cork escort-card holders from blowing away and as gifts for guests to take home. 

I love these monogram mugs! How pretty these would look sitting on everyone's plate!

These address books are perfect for any wedding.  The bride and groom can add there address, and then guest can pass them around throughout the evening to collect all those long lost cousins information! 

You can't go wrong here! Inexpensive and necessary!  Perfect for any outdoor wedding and of course your beach theme wedding!

These little favor boxes make the perfect and unexpected pot for plants.  Guest can go home and put right into the garden!

I'm a sucker for tote bags.  A little pricey, but great for a small wedding.  You can also save money by embroidering the family name in the bag instead.  It could be more like a family favor. Favors(KnotShop)&pId=P1633(KnotShop)&cId=Favors(KnotShop)&cTypF=&sscId=WelcomeBags(KnotShop)#toppage

I think this is the cutest idea!  Who would love this?  Make it extra special by wrapping them in a box with the stamp imprint on the top of the love love!

Everyone needs a calender!!

 I love that these chalkboard coasters can double for escort cards.  The kids would love these also!
