The Top 10 Best Wedding Favors!
Have you ever been to a wedding where you came home with an awesome wedding favor? It probably made the wedding even more memorable. Are you planning a wedding and need some ideas on favors that your guests will actually like? Here are the Top 10 Best Wedding Favors that LJDJs compiled. Well, at least we think they are pretty rad!
- Photo Booth Photos
Keep your wedding day memories alive with a photo booth for your guests to enjoy. You have a couple of options with this. You can rent an actual photo booth where your guests can sit and snap some silly shots of themselves, or you can create a DIY photo backdrop and have your photographer take Polaroid’s of your guests that they can take home. If you have an open bar, this might be the best way for your sloshed guests to remember how much fun they had at your wedding. How about recording a VIDEO testimonial? We even have GREEN screen capabilities that will allow your guests to morph themselves in a customized background. You name it, we can design it. With todays high tech apps and more, our newest booth will give your event the most memorable experience like no other. Take a look! https://vimeo.com/121378453

- Flip Flops
Just about everyone wears flip-flops at some point. And with weddings that have awesome music playing where the guests are tearing up the dance floor, flip flops are a great favor because people can put them on at the reception to be more comfortable. This is a great option for summer or beach weddings. Your guests are likely to wear their flops again once the fun is done.
- Personalized Champagne/Wine Corks or Drinking Glass
I’m not talking about putting the couple’s name on drinking glasses. I’m talking about putting each guest’s name on them. I attended the wedding of two good friends who did this and it was so creative! The flutes were used to make the wedding toast and now my husband, I, and even our toddler (for future use, of course) have our own champagne glasses with our names on them. We’ll never forget where these incredible flutes came from. I forgot to mention, the corks are pretty cool to have. You never know when your going to finish your bottle of wine.
- Treats From a Take-Home Bar
Giving your guests a sweet to take home as a wedding favor is a wonderful thought. However, not everyone likes the same flavors. Setting up a take-home bar that offers a variety of treats is a good alternative. Provide little goody bags for your guests to fill up with their favorites. You can go with candy, marshmallows, even nuts, raisins and other snacks like goldfish or pretzels. You can have this option in addition to, or instead of a traditional wedding cake.
- Recipe Books
If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to make your diet more diverse. I get sick of eating the same foods over and over. And while I’m admittedly a horrible cook (seriously, ask my husband), I still enjoy trying new recipes. Even if you aren’t an avid cooker, a recipe book is a cute wedding favor that may come in handy even if you think you won’t use it often. If the recipes come from the bride and groom, or important people in their life, that makes the favor even more special.

- S’mores/Hot Chocolate
Unless you have a screw loose, or you are allergic to chocolate, you have to admit that s’mores are one of the best winter treats. Heck, they are one of the best treats, period. So if you’re having a winter wedding, your guests will love receiving all the fixins for making s’mores, or even some hot chocolate mix. Don’t just warm their hearts with your love, warm them with your wedding favor. Awwww….so cute.

Choose from your favorite snacks including Dunkin Donuts, White Castle burgers, McDonalds and/or any fast food chain restaurant goodies. Have your guests ransack our snack truck to satisfy their munchies. Want a more personalized experience. Ask our staff about upgrading to some of your favorite foods.

- Pop Culture Cake Pops Lollipops made from cake? Yummy! How can anyone resist such a delightful treat? With the ability to customize these sweet creations, giving your wedding guests a cake pop favor is a deliciously creative idea. Choose the same flavor(s) as your wedding cake, or go with something totally different- maybe even a variety of flavors. If you want to give your wedding guests cake pop favors, and you’re in the New Jersey or New York area, check out Pop Culture Cake Pops.
- Personalized Wine Bottles
You can’t really go wrong by giving people alcohol as a gift. Wine is known for being a classy and sophisticated way to show people appreciation. That’s why people often bring wine as a small gesture when going to a dinner party. So a personalized wine bottle makes a great wedding favor. You can find inexpensive wine bottles and create custom labels to put on them. In fact, mini wine bottles are really cute and the perfect size to use as wedding favors. You can either put your name and wedding date on the label, or put each guest’s name. It could double as both a wedding favor and a seating card. How creative and unique is that?
- Homemade Goodness
While candy wedding favors can be hit or miss, small jars of a homemade sauce or spice are usually a big hit. Even for guests who don’t do a lot of cooking, a specially made edible delight is something they will enjoy. Whether it’s a BBQ sauce, a jam, or a uniquely flavored olive oil, your guests are sure to love taking home a special, one-of-a-kind indulgence.
