We’ve mentioned before how much thrill we get from each teeny-tiny detail that makes up the total grandeur of a flawlessly planned and executed wedding. Last week, we shared a bit on past awe-inspiring paper products and wedding invitation suites that set the tone for guests’ experiences at each of our As You Wish couple’s celebrations. Today, we’re pausing to appreciate one of our most-loved wedding details that bids a sweet and thoughtful farewell to guests: favors. They’re the above-and-beyond sentiments that thank your guests for traveling near and far to play a part in your most-special day. Favors are an extra-fun way to compliment the wedding’s design scheme, whilst purposefully packaging up a little token of your love to send home with each friend and family member. We conjured up photos of some of our “fave favors” from As You Wish weddings passed. Take a look at these creative, and in some cases- tasty, ways our brides and grooms said goodbye to their loved ones.
Sending your guests home with a late night, sweet tooth-satisfying snack, is a can’t-go-wrong move in our book..
This duo loved baseball, thus, these candy apple, ballpark-inspired favors perfectly complimented their personalities.
Color-coordinated with the wedding design, these gold-dusted macarons were a hit.
Customized hershey kisses at each place setting! They’re as cute as they are savory.
A sensible bride! She sent guests home with cookies AND water bottles. How’s that for post-dance floor replenishment?!
We loved this couple’s plan to have all the remaining pieces of their dessert pies packed up in precious to-go baskets (complete with napkins and utensils) for their guests to enjoy later.
Sweet treats packaged up in pretty boxes and planted at each place setting are an easy way to keep with a polished and flawlessly designed table scape:
These couples sent guests on their way with mini servings of their favorite adult beverages…
Monogrammed koozies are a win during and after the party.
For the guys.. cigars paired with a customized pack of matches. These were a great addition to this Gatsby-themed wedding.
This coffee shop-cool couple gifted each guest with a bag of their favorite roast of coffee beans.
It only made sense that guests got to take these individualized snow globe “escort cards” home with them from this winter wonderland wedding.
It’s impossible for us to pick just one favorite! Which favor would you send your loved ones home with? Our token of advice: the more unique and personal, the better!
