It is a way to add a personal touch to your special day and offer a token of gratitude to your guests. Homemade favors may be functional, edible, entertaining or serve as keepsake reminders of your wedding day. Read on for unique do-it-yourself wedding favor ideas.

Favor Gift Bags

Provide a personalized wedding favor gift bag handcrafted to reflect your personal style and taste. Favor bags are easy to make and may be customized in many ways. Sew your own gift bags or buy in bulk from a local crafts store. Add decorations such as ribbon or decorative stickers and handwritten gift tags. Enjoy filling your gift bags with the contents of your choosing such as popcorn, gummies, candies, nuts, or gourmet chocolates.

Cookie Favors

Give a little taste of oven-baked sweetness on your wedding day with cookie favors. Whether you bake them yourself using your great-grandmother’s recipe or buy them from a local bakery, cookies make a great edible wedding favor. Place the cookies inside store-bought favor bags or use CD sleeves, the perfect size for a one large cookie.

Tip: Include the recipe or list of ingredients, especially useful for wedding guests with food allergies.

Thank You Video

Record a video of the two of you expressing your heartfelt thanks to your wedding guests or make it a comedy filled with adventure and appreciation. However you choose to film your video, the important thing is to express who you are as a couple. Equipment for filming can be as simple as using your phone camera to professional video equipment. When creating your video make an outline or script before you begin to help lend structure. Use your home computer to cut and burn the video to CDs or thumb drives.

Couples with green thumbs might enjoy giving do-it-yourself wedding favors from nature. Potted plant favors are easy to make, fill tiny terracotta pots with small plants such as herbs or succulents and decorate with a bow and card. For the eco-minded, give tree seedlings wrapped in burlap along with growing instructions. Make your own potpourri using the petals of flowers from your own garden. If getting married on the beach, consider filling small glass tubes with sand as a special remembrance of your wedding day.
