Often times at weddings, Brides and Grooms will give their guests a little pressie to thank them for coming to celebrate. These favors can be in a variety of styles; for example, edible, floral, or a donation to charity.
Desserts favors are on the rise. Buckeyes, donuts, strawberries dressed as bride and grooms. People love to come to their tables and find a delectable treat waiting for them. They can even double as place cards!

In lieu of a physical present, you might consider donating to charity. According to WeddingWire website editor Kim Forrest, “Couples want to feel like there’s a bigger purpose to their wedding day — that it’s not just about them. If giving back is an important part of the couple’s life together, why not incorporate that into their celebration?”

In addition to donating, many nonprofits will also have merchandise you can give out to raise awareness.

Wedding favors are 100% optional. This isn’t something that your guests expect you to do. But, if you find extra room in the wedding budget, it is a kind gesture.
