DIY Wedding Favors

September 26th, 2012

We are obviously obsessed with Pinterest just as everyone else is and we can’t seem to stop finding inspiration! This week we wanted to share with you our favorite DIY favors.

We love when favors pull double duty and these luggage tags do just that. You can buy luggage tags in bulk online then all you have to do is use a design program or Microsoft Word to add the names of your guest, along with their table number and for an added touch, a chic logo along with the date.

Mini potted herbs are a great way to add décor to your tables and thank your guests for celebrating your special day. Herbs can be purchased at your local nursery, and since your buying in bulk you might be able to snag a deal. Lots of adorable container options are out there from jars to planting pots, and you can make them your own by painting them like these below.

We love coffee here at the Mansion and this favor was right up our alley. If you and your groom are coffee lovers too we suggest beautiful coffee favors. You can use any coffee that you like from your favorite local (Rostov’s Coffee & Tea is one of our personal favorites) or even your beloved grocery store brand. Place in an adorable container and your guests will be thankful to have the boost of caffeine after a long night of celebrating.

We all know after leaving a wedding we are in search of a late night snack. Why not supply your guests with the snack that they need? You can use brown lunch bags dressed up with some pattern and tags and fill the inside with goodies. We suggest something salty along with something sweet. Maybe pretzels, kettle cooked chips, local chocolate or anything that is you and your groom’s favorite treats! Wrap them in some patterned paper, tie with twine and label the treats! We suggest leaving them were guests will exit so they can grab and go on their way out.
