The opportunities are endless when it comes to wedding favors, so couples looking to give a meaningful gift to their guests might be a bit overwhelmed by the choices. If you are planning your wedding celebration in Georgia, these wedding favor ideas will help you nail down the perfect option. While some are more traditional and others more unique, these ideas will impress your guests and help you properly show your appreciation.
Show Off Your Town with Local Goods
If a lot of your guests are coming in from out of town, they’ll love Georgia wedding favors that not only remind them of your wedding but their time in your city. Head to some of your favorite local shops to find gifts that guests can’t buy anywhere else. Atlanta-based Starwicks Creation offers an array of luxurious scented candles, and can even customize the design on the packaging to reflect your wedding. Savannah couples can head to Savannah Bee Company to pick out some incredible honey creations. You could also check out a local gourmet olive oil shop, your favorite tea store for delicious loose-leaf tea, or a handmade artisan soap company.
Cheers with Mini Champagne Bottles or Cocktail Kits
Give your guests a bit of alcohol so that they can keep the party going after the reception. Try mini champagne bottles personalized with your monogram and wedding date, or mini cocktail kits so guests can make your favorite drink at home. Consider including alcohol from local distilleries to add some hometown flair or even the necessary ingredients for the signature cocktail you serve at your reception.
Stay Cozy with Blankets
For colder-weather celebrations in Georgia, wedding favors that keep guests warm will be a hit! Blankets are a great option because they can be a sweet gift that guests will use for years to come, and extremely practical for the day of the celebration. To add a personal touch, find a source where you can add a monogram with your initials, date of the wedding, or your wedding hashtag.
A Little Gift for the Green Thumbs
Gift a packet of seeds, and your guests will have a gift that will keep on giving. Seeds are great because they are budget-friendly and easy for guests to hold onto during the celebration. Try going for herbs that guests can use for cooking and ones that easily grow either indoors or outdoors, such as lavender, mint, basil, thyme, or rosemary.
Cater to Your Sweet Tooth
If you have a particularly strong sweet tooth, share your love of sugar by gifting delicious desserts guests can enjoy after the celebration (or during, if the temptation is too strong!). Some companies with amazing Georgia wedding favors include Braselton-based Custom Cakes by Carmen, where you can find perfectly-sized miniature jar cakes your guests will love. There is also Savannah’s Candy Kitchen, where you can choose from a variety of decadent dessert and candy options. Couples in the Stone Mountain area can turn to Treats at the Boutique for a delicious array of chocolate-covered strawberries, candy apples, and more.
