Wedding Favors: Tips + Trends

May 4, 2015 | Posted in Trends, Weddings

With all of the details that go into planning your wedding day – the dress, the venue, the ceremony, the music (and so on) – wedding favors can sometimes be the forgotten item on a bride- and groom-to-be’s mile-long checklist.

So where do you begin when deciding on your wedding favors? A favorite trend among brides and grooms is an edible (or drinkable) treat. Food-related favors are both functional and fun: A small bag of candy, a travel-sized bottle of wine, or a savory snack goes a long way…especially after a night of celebration!

Foodie favors are also a sweet way to commemorate the big day. A customized label with your wedding date and a sentimental phrase can create a unique wedding favor that will leave your guests smiling. How cute is this “Meant to Bee” honey jar from Mike and Michele’s Jersey Shore wedding at the Versailles Ballroom at the Ramada Inn in Ocean County, NJ?

You can’t go wrong with sending your wedding guests home with a miniature bottle of wine or champagne. A number of New Jersey wineries and liquor stores can accommodate bulk orders and even customization services for weddings and other special events. These pint-sized delights make for a sophisticated send-off and are sure to be a winner with your attendees. Cheers!

Favors often bring all of your wedding’s details together. Enhance a tropical- or beach-themed wedding with a tasty selection of Jersey Shore saltwater taffy, a collection of seashells, or customized drink cozies for the summertime. (They’d all look great in a Jersey Shore venue, including the Versailles Ballroom in Ocean County, NJ.)  Here are a few beachy, summertime favors that would wow any guest at our Jersey Shore wedding venue.

For crafty brides (and grooms), DIY favors are a huge hit – you’ll keep your guests and your budget happy! Send your wedding guests home with a favor that comes from the heart.
