Is your wedding day fast approaching, leaving you little time to shop for your wedding favors? Before you start scrambling to shop and end up settling for so-so favors, try some of these wedding favor ideas.
No matter how long you’ve had to plan your wedding day, you’re not alone if you need wedding favor ideas at the last minute. Many brides put off favor shopping and other small details because they are so consumed with planning the larger parts of the wedding, such as booking the vendors and deciding on a cake and flowers.
However, wedding favors are still important, and waiting until the last minute to shop for some could leave you with some not-so-hot favors. Shipping and extra features such as personalization can easily delay your favors’ arrival, so the sooner you shop the better. Still, if you are on a time crunch and not even the fastest shipping option will save you, try any of the following wedding favor ideas:
Homemade treats—Baking or cooking homemade treats does require some time, but you can whip some treats up a lot faster than it takes for your wedding favors to be shipped to you, unless you opt for an express shipping option, which could cost you a pretty penny. Making your own edible wedding favors can be fun, inexpensive, and quick if you are in a time crunch.
Crafty sentiments—Along with making your own edible wedding favors, why not make other wedding favors, such as miniature scrapbooks or customized picture frames? If you have an artsy side, this is a great chance to get creative and put together some favors full of crafty sentiment. Like baking, DIY wedding favor ideas are time-consuming, but they can be put together in a jiff over the weekend and they won’t break the bank. Plus, not all DIY wedding favor ideas require a lot of time. Try silk flower corsages or music playlists for something thoughtful and easy.
Charitable favors—When in doubt and in a major time crunch, consider giving back and encouraging your guests to do the same with charity wedding favor ideas. Pick a cause and organization you care about, print out some cards with information for how and where your guests can donate, and then place them with your place settings. This is one of the most thoughtful, quick, and easy wedding favor ideas out there.
