Everyone loves a wedding favor bag packed with awesome freebies. So why not give your guests a bag filled with things that they will love and use – instead of having it sit in the trunk of their car or put away and forgotten about. Here are four fabulous wedding favor bag ideas that your guests will actually want to take home.
The “Keeping It Local” Wedding Favor Bag
If you’re having a destination wedding, help your guests by guiding them to the must-see sights in the area. Highlight favorite restaurants, cafes, and things to do to ensure your guests have the best experience. Additionally, add a few local delicacies like a bottle of wine or beer, sweet treats (macrons in France, beignets in New Orleans or coconut drops in Jamaica) or some local tea or coffee. After a long flight, spoil your guests with a traditional massage or treatment at a local spa. There’s nothing like a Thai or Lomi Lomi massage to get everyone in a relaxed mood.

The Boozy Bag
For a booze-loving couple, give your guests something to sip on with a boozy bag. Add mini wine bottles, splits of champagne, or small liquor bottles that are all locally made. Throw in a few mixers that guest can pair their drinks with. Having something to sip on will definitely ensure that everyone has a wonderful time on your big day. It will also help them avoid the cost of the hotel mini bar! Don’t forget to add some snacks and a few bottles of water. Personalize the labels of everything in the bag for a final touch.
The “All About Us” Wedding Favor Bag
Make your wedding gift bag totally yours with a few of your favorite things. Add your favorite candies, a flash drive with songs that will remind guests of your wedding, and a handwritten thank you note. You could also add your favorite card game with a deck of cards, a bottle of your favorite wine, a recipe of your fav dish to cook together or even a voucher to your favorite restaurant.

The “Hangover Kit” Wedding Favor Bag
Make sure your guests don’t regret that last glass of champagne (or shot of tequila) with a wedding favor bag that takes care of their hangover. For the night of your wedding, add some snacks, mini donuts or a room service voucher so guest can munch late in the night to absorb some of the alcohol and try to avoid a hangover. Also add plenty of bottled water, headache and heartburn tablets, and some vitamin-packed effervescent tablets for the next day. Another excellent touch is a pair of sunglasses and an invite to a post-wedding brunch.
