Fun Favor Ideas

Hello everyone! With so many favor options out there we know that things can quickly get overwhelming. Most of these were found at Beau-Coup which has a huge assortment of favors, but you can also try searching www.myweddingfavors.com/, www.favorfavor.com, or Etsy for ideas. Here are a few of our favorites:


 

Candles

We love the idea of candles as favors as there are so many different votive, label, and scent options to personalize them! Try tying in your scents with your season; use apple or pumpkin for fall, floral scents for spring, clean scents for summer, and pine or cranberry scents for winter, or of course you can forego a scent altogether. You can find a few options to buy them here, or if you love DIYing check out this tutorial.

Signature Drink

If you love your signature drink then this is a great option for you! Try packaging in a quirky bottle with a fun ingredients/instruction label. If you’re worried about them not being refrigerated, try adding just the nonperishable ingredients and alcohol and letting your guests add the other ingredients at home.

Personalized Sauces

Are you and your fiance hot sauce connoisseurs or BBQ sauce lovers? Or perhaps you love maple syrup? These can be purchased already bottled with your own personalized label. You could also buy small bottles of your favorite brand and attach a personalized label or tag. This idea is great because it can work for any type of sauce or dressing!

Bottle Openers

These are a great option for your guests- because after all, who couldn’t use a bottle opener? Bonus- many of these would be easy to attach a place card to! They can all be found here.

“Vintage” Disposable Cameras

A fun and quirky way to help your guests capture memories of your day! They would also be great if placed on a guestbook table- let your guests take photos throughout the night and then take them home with you and develop later. We found them here.

Mini Bottles

Along the same lines as the signature drink idea- but a bit less work for you! Get your favorite champagne, or for a non alcoholic option a sparkling cider.
Cider found here.
Champagne found here and here.

Keychains

A quick and easy option- personalize or add a gift tag and you’re done! Both found here.

 

We hope this has given you a few new ideas to think about! Like one of these ideas but don’t think you’ll have the time to put them together? Contact us at info@everylittledetails.com to find out how we can help! Happy Planning!

Some Of Our Favorite Local Venues

Today we wanted to take the time to share a few of our favorite local outdoor venues with you. These aren’t always seen on the bigger venue-finding websites, and we think that they deserve a bit of spotlight. By no means is this a complete list, but it’s a start!

If you are still searching for a venue and none of these appeal to you, here are a few helpful websites: Wedding Wire, Wedding Spot, and The Knot are all good places to begin.

Please note- the following are in no particular order, we love them all!
