Do Me a Favor: Koozie Alternatives

Favors are generally the last impression of your big day. Choose something guests will use, enjoy & look back on – instead of politely allowing it to collect dust before meeting its ultimate dumpster demise.

It’s something to look forward to – after the open bar reception buzz has worn off, the embarrassment of your dance moves is setting in and the couple makes their grand exit. The crowd shuffle towards the door to grab their favors & they’re either really adorable, or super tacky. Browse my absolute favorite favor ideas (both unique & useable) sure to impress all of your guests!

Call the Shots

These mini shot mason jars are so cute & guests will definitely reuse them for future events & endeavors (I suggest handing these out at the beginning of the reception – before the guests drive home!)

A Bite of Delight

They’ll spend most of the day snacking on apps, building a dish at the buffet & sneaking some sweets, but after a long day of drinks & dancing – send your guests home with a personal piece of cake or some adorable donut boxes!

Beautiful Bottle Openers

Ya’ll should know by know…I love creativity & customization, but my biggest pet peeve is when favors are littered with the couple’s initials and even worse: the wedding date. If the favor is fab, guests will remember your big day, no tacky wordage necessary. Choose bottle openers based on your theme – how gorg are these anchors?!

Tea for Two

How sweet are these personal pouches of tea leaves? These are a must for a winter wedding! If you’re more of a coffee lover, fill with your favorite K-Cup or ground beans.

Natural Selection

Succulents are visually appealing, easy to care for, stimulate a sense of calm & can spruce up anything from an office cubicle to a breakfast bar! Allow your guests to choose their own long lasting favor.

Wax & Wane

These tiny candles with custom toppers are an exception to the rule; they’re simple, fresh and functional! Personalize the scent to reflect your venue – seaside nuptials? Choose a white sand fragrance. For a rustic barn bash: peach cobbler or sunflowers.

S’More Please

On the go food kits are super trendy. Send your guests out with boxed s’mores, mason jar cookie mix, hot cocoa mix or caramel apples.

Doggie Bags

ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED WITH THIS! Not only is this an adorable way to pay homage to your fur-child, but your guests’ pets will thank you too! If you ask for photos ahead of time, you can personalize the bags with names & photos of the guests dogs – imagine the awe.

Meant to Bee

Honey, maple syrup or olive oil are on the top of the list of favorite favors! The charm is enough to inspire friends & fam to get cooking and fondly think back to your wedding day details.

Snack Packs

These are the 2016 version of Jordan almonds. These small bags are personalized with lovable little stickers & the bride & groom’s favorite candy or small snack. The best part? They’re super budget friendly! Get the stickers here.
