Does anyone really like Jordan almonds? Great ideas for alternative party favors!
Art-inspired- Encourage guests to channel their inner artist, and give out personalized color pencils in bright colorful packaging -- very fitting for an art gallery reception.
Scented Bundles- Give each guest a few stems of calm-inducing herbal incense, like jasmine or lavender. Tie the bundles with raffia and then around each napkin for a pretty place setting presentation.
Cocktail Accessories- Choose drink coasters that fit your wedding style -- martini coasters for a '40s-style wedding, twig coasters for a garden party. Have them monogrammed or printed with a special thank you message.
Outdoor Fun- Kites aren't just for kids. Splendid for causal waterside weddings or romantic park parties, small kites can be a sophisticated, and trend-setting, party favor.
Noisemakers- Make some noise! Maracas are so festive and sure to enliven even the liveliest of parties, perfect for a beach wedding or any party with Caribbean flair. Jingle bells are perfect for a winter or Christmas wedding.
DIY Cool- At each setting, rest small fabric-covered scrapbooks or with a hand-written thank-you note on the front page.
Jetsetter-approved- For the couple that loves to travel, send guests home with personalized luggage tags boxed and tied with a ribbon.
By the Book-True romantics might opt to give guests a copy of Shakespeare's sonnets or a book of favorite love poems, with a custom bookmark to add a personal touch.
Going Green (Eco-friendly)- Place one or two cards per table letting guests know that a donation has been made in honor of them to your favorite charity to celebrate your special day.
What are some of the most unique favors you have seen or been given at wedding?
