Homemade Wedding Favors


Giving gifts or favors is a very personal thing. The giver must think about the preference of the receiver. She must also consider the type of gift and her budget. Especially during weddings, the couple has to consider all of these things while making sure that the meaning of the wedding favor will be acknowledged by the guests.

For some brides who know her way around arts and crafts or cooking, most gifts or favors can be homemade. Apart from the biggest advantage that she is able to save on cost, homemade gifts or favors are a hobby that she gets to enjoy while doing it and for the receiver, he or she is able to receive a truly personal gift. For wedding favors, here are some homemade favors suggestions that are easy and inexpensive.

You can give edible wedding favors such as:

– Cupcakes or pastries – As they say, cupcakes, brownies or any other pastry items taste best when they are homemade. If you have a special recipe, you can baked these goodies, place them in special boxes and put a ribbon with a hang tag or mini card that includes your wedding details. Very few people would not appreciate a homemade treat that they can eat when they get home.

– Fruit preserves – They are easy to use, and you can also save on time by giving these away. You can make these weeks or months beforehand so there is no need for you to take time away that is close to your wedding day just to prepare them. You can buy plain, empty mini bottles and you can place labels where you can write the wedding details.

– Cider brew – For an elegant favor, you can give alcoholic favors such as a home brew of beer or cider. You can also create a special vodka mix by using vodka, flavoring, and empty mini bottles.

You can also make practical favors like these items:

– Candles – They are easy to make and the materials are relatively cheap. You can even mold them in special designs such as angel, heart, or any symbol that is related to your wedding. You can use wax color that is similar to your color motif or a shade that can complement it for a totally coordinated look.

– Music CDs – You can compile your favorite songs burn them to an empty CD. You can use the front cover of the CD to place your wedding details, then put the play list on the inner flap.

– Hand-painted bookmarks – You can purchase ordinary bookmarks then draw special images on one side. Practical and personal, hand painted bookmarks truly send the message that it is a personal, homemade wedding favor.

Giving homemade favors is a refreshing change from commercialized wedding favors. For the couple, they get to say their appreciation in a truly personal way while saving them on cost. For the guests, they get a personal wedding favor that is personally made and their appreciation is heightened as well.
