According the The Knot, the most popular months for weddings are June, August, September, and October, with December growing in demand because of the holidays. Getting married during less popular months could save you money on the reception site and other wedding services like catering, photography and floral arrangements.

But with a hot bed of wedding activity on its way this summer into fall, a lot of brides to be are in the planning stages now. Because of this I decided I’d post a few more handmade wedding favor ideas to add to yesterday’s inspirational post on making your own handmade soap wedding favors. Here are just a few of my favorites.

1.) Rosemary Sea Salt Favors. A functional wedding favor that guests can later use on potatoes and in other cooking recipes. The top of the container is decorate with a the couple’s monogram and the wedding date.

2.) DIY Succulent Favors. Succulents are by far one of the easier plants to grow, and they won’t die if you forget to water them for a while. So gifting them as a wedding favor is a good idea even for those guests who have a black thumb rather than a green one. Plus they’re easy to grow from cuttings allowing you to make multiple favors from just one plant.

3.) DIY Mexican Wedding Favors. Talk about fun in a bottle! Give the gift of either some virgin agave syrup or top shelf tequila in downsized bottles that you can then customize with editable, printable bottle labels. I’m sure these would be a blast in Christmas stockings come December as well!

4.) Spread the Love Label. Homemade jellies and jams are another one of those perfect wedding favors because they are consumable. Make and can your favorite jam recipe, then label with these completely customizable  Spread the Love wedding labels.

5.) DIY Wedding Favor Bags with a Twist. A simple and inexpensive, yet elegant way to create a wedding favor bag that you can then fill with the treats of your choice.
Other ideas I like are:
  • Filling test tubes with bath salts or a spice mix and sealing with a cork. Tie a ribbon around the top where the cork goes with a tag stating the ingredients. (Inspired by these Organic Thyme Lavender Bath Salts in Test Tubes.)
  • Making a cd of all the bride and groom’s wedding play list for all of the guests.
  • Crafting mini vertical wall garden magnetic terrariums that guests can keep on their fridge to remind them of your new union and keep papers in place.
  • Fill small tins with loose leaf tea and apply a custom label.
What are your ideas for wedding or party favors that you think are the bee’s knees?
