Best Wedding Favor Ideas

As a photographer, I have had the honor of attending hundreds of weddings. I am always amazed at the exquisite details that go into each event to make it unique. The personality of the bride and groom is evident in their choice of flowers and decorations. I have seen wedding favors that range from really cool DIY to over-the-top luxurious items. Here are a few of the best wedding favor ideas that guests are sure to love:

Hand painted kitchen towels

Select a favorite quote that reflects your love for one another. Hire an artist to hand paint the message on a flour sack kitchen towel. Include your names and the wedding date.

Cocktail Kits

Create a signature drink and have it available at the bar during the reception. Assemble the required ingredients into a small bag, box, or mason jar. Include a travel size liquor bottle and a recipe card. Guests will enjoy this unique treat and may have a new favorite cocktail. This may be my  top 1 among the best wedding favor ideas!
