It can be hard to choose favor services for your guests at your wedding reception. You want to make sure they are useful while still fitting in the budget. Of course, you don’t want the ordinary favors. We listed the most popular favors for you right here. You want it to be unique, personalized, and inexpensive.  Read our list below from 20 favors for your wedding reception.

Wedding Favor List

~ Hand held fans… Cool down your guests while leaving a lasting impression. Fans are great for outdoor receptions during the hot months.

~ Personalized Journal & Pen…
Give them something they will actually use. Stationary helps them remember your celebration on a daily basis.

~ Personalized Lip Balm… Some balms have medicinal benefits, while others have a great fragrances. There are many kinds of balm you can choose from, so pucker up.

~ Photo Albums…
You can expect your guests to take tons of photos at your wedding reception. Why not help them store their photos in a custom album with your name and date on it. These are also a nice favor if you get a photo booth rental.

~ Colored Candies… These are probably the most common favor at receptions. Everyone has a sweet tooth, so give them a reason to indulge after the meal.

~ Lottery Tickets…
Okay, this one might be out there, but you are spending the money right? Why not make your guests lucky. This works well with casino themed receptions. Who knows, they might even donate their winnings to your honeymoon!

~ DIY Garden… This is a great favor for spring celebrations. It goes with the time of the year, and is a fun treat. Families will look forward to taking their gift home and start growing their little seeds.

~ Glass Coasters…
Another simple wedding favor, that can be personalized many ways. You can have a designed custom etched into the coaster. Check out websites online to see what is available.

~ Bottles of Wine… Are you a big wino? If so, then why not share your interests with your friends and family. You can have custom labels designed to match your wedding invites. You might even be able to setup an appointment to visit a winery and help make the wine yourself!

~ Wine Charms… This is an inexpensive way to decorate your wine glass. People will use these at wine parties, you can even create them yourself. Have a variety of designs and share them with your guests

~ Scented Soaps and Lotions… This is a relaxing way to treat your guests. Give them an experience they can take home with them.

~ Scented Candles… Everyone can use a candle at their home. Candles help warm a space up while giving a nice vibe. They do not have to be big candles, but just the right size to fit on a small coffee table.

~ Comfy Slippers… Comfort is key! Seriously, who wouldn’t turn down an inviting pair of slippers. Try to keep to neutral colors.

~ Giant Lollipops… Those old time movies always have a huge lollipop, why not your wedding. You could choose from a variety of flavors. Have fun with choosing a way to display them on the tables.

~ Wedding Bubbles… Would you want to have your guests create a dramatic grand entrance? How about an encore farewell with a bubble exit. Bubbles make a dramatic backdrop in your photos, so give your photographer something to shoot.

~ Custom Coffee and Cocoa… This favor is similar to wine, except you don’t have to be 21 to enjoy it. Most couples drink coffee in the morning, so this favor will be put to good use.

~ Mint Tin… This is another favor seen at many receptions. Almost every favor website sells mint tins. Since the mint is conveniently stored, you can easily put the tin in your purse or pocket for later.

~ Quote Book… Inspire your guests with quotes from influential people. You could even create a couple quotes yourself and pass on some words of wisdom.

~ Jar of Jam… This is another favor that works well with spring and summer. You could make the jam yourself! I have personally seen this done before, and guests enjoyed their gift.

~ Photo Booth… Ditch the ordinary and embrace the fun. You can skip favors and instead have a photo booth at your wedding reception. Encourage guests to take photos throughout the night. They will look forward to taking their strip of the photos home with them. This is by far one of the most popular favors on this list!
