How to Make Your Own Wedding Favors

By getting all the pieces together and organized in work areas you can set up a small production line with each work team doing one task then passing along the favors to the next team.

Getting ideas for wedding favors can be a bit daunting, but here are a few ideas that are proven winners. Depending on your budget and level of craft ability you can go for all home made or hand assembled with purchased items.

Treats and Sweets

If you're a whiz at making little candies, cookies and cupcakes choose one and make it elegant. If you're a bit nervous about cooking, you can order delicacies from your favorite bakery or confectioner:

  • Truffles
  • Candy Bites
  • Cookies
  • Shortbreads
  • Mini cakes
  • Cupcakes
  • Brownies


Package edible treats in cellophane bags tied up with ribbon in your wedding colors and add a favor tag you design and print yourself. Or make tiny treat boxes with custom designs and hang tags.

Stitch It

You can then attach them to cards or thank you tags, add them to the top of favor boxes or tins or turn them into fridge magnets.

Don't go mad with the design though if you are not experienced at cross stitch as it will take you months to get through them all!

Natural choices wedding favors

Double your favors up as place cards, by writing your guests names on them.

Here are some nature inspired ideas to start you off:

  • Miniature potted plants in terra cotta pots
  • River washed pebbles
  • Sea shells
  • Wooden shapes

Preserved in time

If someone in your family is good at making preserves, ask them to make up a big batch which you can then put in to jars & give as wedding favors. Add some personalized labels & cute fabric tops over the lids to finish them off.

Sweet Smelling

Purchase some linen, cotton or hessian & make up some little pouches. Put inside some dried lavender or potpourri & sew up the tops.

Choose some his & her fragrances such as lavender & sandalwood, you will find a choice of fillings in craft stores. These sachets are great for your guests to place in sock drawers. As a finishing touch you add your cross stitched design from earlier!
