Great Ways to Thank Your Guests

Your wedding guests have put in the time, effort and travel to make it to your special day and celebrate the love you and your partner share. Not only will they be there for your wedding day, but chances are they have been there to offer their love and guidance throughout your relationship. It is important to show your guests how grateful you are to have them in your lives and celebrating your commitment. There are many ways to thank your guests, but why not start with 10 creative wedding favors your guests will love and actually keep?!

Soundtrack to Your Day: Music seems to be a powerful memory cue for many. What better way to get guests to reminisce on your celebratory day than to give them a soundtrack of all the songs that played? The processional, the recessional, the first dance, parent dances, cake cutting – all of these special moments will be music to their ears!

Cozy Blankets: Having an outdoor wedding? Help make your guests comfortable by providing cozy blankets they can wrap around themselves to keep warm. Even better – let the guests keep them as a thank you! They will forever remember the love you and your partner share as they curl up on the couch with your thoughtful gift.

Mini Champagne Bottles: The party doesn’t have to stop when the bar closes. Mini champagne bottles can provide extra fun and excitement throughout the evening! Add a chevron straw that matches your wedding colors and your guests will obsess over how cute and festive they are. Keep it poppin’ all night!

Succulents: Not only are succulents individually unique and beautiful just like each one of your guests, they are durable and won’t wilt if they don’t get water for a few days – which makes them perfect for the guest who may not be the best at taking care of plants. Friends and family will smile each time they look at their succulent and think about watching your love grow!

The Succulent Source

Bottle Openers: Having a vintage or rustic themed wedding? These “key to my heart” bottle openers are the perfect wedding favor! They are small and easy to take home, can be put on a key chain, and will make guests think of you every time they crack open a bottle. They can even double as seating chart placements!

Indulgy

Chapstick: A great gift that guests will absolutely use is chapstick. Especially if you are getting married in this dry Colorado weather! Print a personalized message along with a cute saying, such as “Our Love is the Bomb!” or “Mint to be”. With a favor this useful and small in size, guests can put it in their pocket, purse – wherever! It won’t be a favor left on the table.

Midnight Snack: After all that dancing, guests can work up an appetite. Before sending them home or back to their hotel room hungry, provide them with adorable midnight snack packages! One idea is a package of milk and a doughnut, but any option to go with your wedding theme will be a huge hit!

Luggage Tags: These personalized luggage tags are great for a travel themed wedding! You can use them as seating chart placements as well. They will separate your guests’ bags from the rest and make them reminisce about your special day as they travel away!

Make Your Own S’mores: Wanting to have a s’more bar at your wedding? Send your guests home with their own s’more packages so they can make them at home as well! Maybe they will even invite you over for a night by the fire where you all can share your favorite stories from your beautiful day!

Lottery Tickets: Do you feel lucky to have your friends and family in your life? Do you want your love and luck to rub off on them? Give your guests a lucky coin and lottery tickets to see if you can help them win big! If they do, they will forever thank you! If they don’t, they will still remember how fun your day was and have a story to tell!

Words from our clients: “Sarah is very professional, reliable, calm and experienced. Most? Sarah did an amazing job at our final extensive planning meeting. We got through so many things in a few hours and it gave us a much better feel for what was left to get done. Also, it was priceless to have Sarah 100% ON IT during the wedding rehearsal and wedding day—It took the worry off of us so we could much better enjoy everything. It was neat that by the end, we all felt like family celebrating together.” – Lori (Mother of the Bride)
