Will you send your guests home with a little gift to end the night? What are you planning to give as wedding favors? Does your choice have sentimental meaning? Are you customizing them in a special way?

Will you thank your guests with sweet treats?What are you giving as wedding favors? 1

How else will you be delighting your guests? Are you serving a signature cocktail? Will you thank your out of town guests with welcome bags? Have you hired unique reception entertainment?

    We have beer bottle koozies, but just to keep hands dry. For favors, we are doing these cast iron bottle openers. Using them like a napkin ring on each place setting.

    We’ll be giving each of our guests a drink coozie with our names and wedding date + some cute little saying (like sip sip hooray or smthn like that), it’s a decent prince and it’s not something I have to go through and make 160 of 😂

    Thanks so much. Things seem so well in-hand, but why is there still so much to do? LOL Just spent the past hour stuffing groomsmen's gift bags. Getting down to the wire for sure. Merry Christmas!!

    We did a few. We personalized ornaments with our guests' names and used these as "escort cards." We also had a photo booth where our guests could print and keep their photos. We got copies of all the photos on a flash drive. We also had a candy bar and a fire pit with blankets that the guests could use and take home at the end of the night.

    I'm planning of doing a perfume bar. A package from a vendor is expensive. So I'll just buy oils, bottles, and equipments at Amazon. Bottles will have a customized sticker, and guests will be able to make their own perfume. I will also be putting some scent suggestions with ingredients.

    We did salt scrubs in mason jars. I made eucalyptus and lavender ones and placed labels with our names and wedding date.

    We are doing individually wrapped cake donuts and 2 flavors of cookies also individually wrapped

    I will also have a key fob flashlight that has 2 lights: regular led white light and a uv light but I imagine a lot of people will leave those instead of want them

    We're getting married in December and decorating a tree at venue so I'm thinking that we will also offer a Christmas ornament to anyone who wants one and the guests will also have the option to take their pair of wine glasses (doubt most people will want) and we're giving away our origami flowers but I am limiting quantity on those because a lot of people have asked to have some already which surprised me

    My only official favors are 2 donuts and 4 cookies
