DIY Wedding Favors - Favor Saturday

Posted on 22 June, 2013 at 9:35

DIY is huge right now, whether in the home, in your clothing, design, or even weddings. While Essence of Events doesn’t recommend DIY-ing your entire wedding (it can be stressful, labor intensive, costly, and not so fun after a while) having homemade wedding favors is a great way to add your crafty touch to your big day.

Guests love seeing personal touches, and if you love crafting or being creative, then we’ve compiled some of the best and our favorite types of DIY homemade wedding favors for your wedding or any event.

Homemade jam is one of the most popular favors to give. Attach a tag that reads “spread the love” or “jam packed with love” for bonus points. Other homemade jarred items to consider are hot sauce, chili, and even ice cream.

Love this cake-in-a-jar concept. Basically just add the layers of a cake into a jar or container for your guests. They make great midnight snacks as well if you attach utensils.

Infused oils and vinaigrettes are easy to make and add a classy and personal touch to your wedding.

Homemade cookies, biscotti, and other goodies are delicious and the packaging can be part of the favor as well.

Soaps are beautiful and will add a great fragrance to your reception room if they have added essential oils.

If you make your own wine, consider gifting some to your guests. If not, customize bottles with your own labels to add a personal touch.

Add the dry ingredients of a recipe to a jar, and put instructions on a label. You can have cookies, brownies, cake, or a number of other yummy treats as options for this great favor.

These birdseed feeders are easy and inexpensive to make, but are cute and personal if you add a tag.

Put tea leaves in a vessel for your guests. You can buy the infusions online or at tea stores like Teavana.

Make such wedding gifts as easy as walking the dog in the sun or download the video from an old camera and make it display correctly on a new TV (you can do it easily with
tml for example I recently made small coasters for my brother to decorate his fiancée. Of course I gave not only these coasters, but also the money, for without money now is impossible.
