Trends: Wedding favors
If you’ve been a guest at a wedding, you’ve likely left with a wedding favor. This trend dates back to the 16th century in Europe and was often reserved for families of nobility to bless their guests. One of the first and most common gifts was a knot made from lace and ribbon to represent the bond of love. However today, favors have evolved into a tradition ranging from DIY gifts, to food gifts and everything in between.
No matter your budget there are hundreds of ideas out there to gift to your guests. Check out three favors that we’ve seen and loved at Penny Tree.
Homemade Jam: A jar of strawberry jam is a cute and sweet little homemade touch.
Jar o’ Honey: The groom is a beekeeper so he highlighted his business and efforts with a jar of locally sourced honey for each guest.
Mulling Spices: A cozy touch for a fall wedding is a packet of mulling spices, purchased from Etsy. Guests can make a warm cup of apple cider.
The possibilities are endless! What will you use as a favor for guests on your wedding day?
