So rest assured, the popcorn would be the toast of all guests.
Seed and mini pot wedding favors
Are you hosting a garden-themed wedding? Then a seed packet is a top wedding favor choice. Your guests would take them home and plant for the flowers to blossom, becoming a constant reminder of your big day. Package these seeds in custom packets and pair them with a mini pot.
Custom wine bottles
Who doesn't like a continuous celebration? Guests want to enjoy the party even after your wedding has ended. And one of the ways to accomplish this is by giving them wedding gifts like wine. Take it a step up by creating custom wine labels with the guest’s name, your wedding date, and initials so that the guest feels important. With their names on the wine bottles, you've given them a sentimental souvenir. Even if they exhaust the wine, they would likely repurpose the bottles.

Upgrade this unusual wedding favor by opting for fancy and personalized matchbooks to make them look more appealing. With the cute paper options available, this is one matchbox they'd never want to exhaust.
One of the best party favors for weddings is planters. If you are eco-friendly or have green thumbs, you want to do something that helps your guests’ gardens thrive. A planter or pot wedding favor is perfect. Simply go modern by playing with shapes instead of buying the regular round or square varieties. Go the extra mile by filling these planters or posts with herbs that your guests can use, succulents for aesthetics, or air plants.
Blend coffee beans
Nothing feels better than a good cup of brewed coffee in the morning. We know many of your guests would love it too. So add custom packs of coffee to their welcome package, dinner packs, and even goodbye favors. They would remember you for as long as they take it, and maybe beyond.

You could make scented and unscented soaps, jams, or honey, depending on your capability. You can also work with your destination theme like giving olive oil from an Italian wedding or coffee beans from a Mexican wedding. These are fun favors that guests can eat on the go or enjoy in their homes for some time.
