I am a firm believer in providing your guests with a little favor or gift. After all, they did take off the weekend to travel and come be a part of your big day, but they also of course brought a present; and even may have attended the bridal shower, engagement parties and bachlorette party. My feeling though is give them something they can enjoy or use in the future.
There is of course the common Jordan almond pack or a trinket with your names and dates on them, but what about thinking out of the box? Who eats Jordan almonds anyways?
Everyone loves chocolate what about a personalized candy bar with a cute saying on it? They can even enjoy it on the way back to the hotel.
Smore kits and hot cider kits are great for a cold winter night at home.
We all remember caramel apples from when we were kids, but when was the last time you had one? These also represent the Hudson Valley area and gives your guests a little taste of the region.
You can still add your names and date of your wedding to this little trinket but your guests can use this cool book mark and remember the great time they had at your wedding.
Honey and maple syrup are a great gift to take home that your guests can always use. Another great gift from the Hudson Valley region!
Pumpkins can always be used to decorate for the fall. And who doesn’t love a pumpkin!
Apple cider donuts are a classic fall treat. Why not create a dessert buffet with to go boxes for guests to take some treats home with them? I know I’m stuffed after a wedding and would love a treat for the car ride home or even the next day.
A great new trend right now Cake Pops! You can have them designed any way you want. I love these acorn pops for guests to walk around and enjoy or even take them for the road.
I think as a rule of thumb give your guests a gift they can either enjoy, like a treat, or something they can use!
