An unusual wedding calls for unusual wedding favors or maybe you just want to give your guests something different! In this instance you will probably want to avoid the usual favor stores and things like candles, candies and photo frames and instead come up with unique and original ideas of your own.
It may seem daunting to think about wedding favors that depart from the normal offerings but advantages themselves are merely small gifts given as a token of thanks. Whether you want quirky or quaint you will actually find there are many things available that can become unusual wedding favors.
The most unique and unusual favors will of course be things you have made yourself. Scour craft websites like Etsy for inspiration as these sites are full of unique ideas which can be adapted to suit weddings. How about key rings with hand embroidered inserts depicting your names and wedding date or fridge magnets with a hand painted design? If you do not have a lot of time to devote to making your rewards then consider ideas which can make things in larger quantities without too much effort, such as your own custom cookies, homemade candles or mini soaps.
But if making your own wedding favors does not suit then it is time to hit the high street and look around gift and home stores for unusual items you could give out at your wedding. Gift stores are a great source of unique and quirky items for favors or for packaging. Mini decorative boxes or tins, handcrafted décor items and charming accessories can make for great favors. Homeware stores are another good choice for decorative homewares, kitchenalia and items for the garden.
Also check out junk stores, charity stores and antique fairs for original items you could use as or in your wedding favors. It can be very surprising what you can pick up for very little money and it is undoubtedly your guests will ever receive a similar favor at subsequent weddings!
