Assembling swag bags is a great way to give you guests a gift that will remind them of your magical day. It can also be a budget buster if you’re not careful! We love scoping out the latest goodies and customizable items that can show your friends and family you really care!
Buy in bulk! Many online retailers offer discounted rates the more you purchase! Find something simple and practical you know your guests will be able to use the of, and afterwards. We love the idea of a monogrammed koozie for cold beverages during your reception. Beach wedding? How about customized flip flops to let your guests venture onto the sand! We loved how Lauren O. Couple Em and John set up rustic boxes of flats for the ladies to kick off their heels!
Wedding favors can be simple and thoughtful. When in doubt, personalized cards addressed to each attendee will show them how much you appreciate them being there. It’s also a great way to jot down a message in case you don’t end up having much time with each guest on your wedding day. With so much going on, you’ll be stretching your time between dancing and mingling!
Seasonal touches like blankets are perfect when planning and evening or Autumn wedding. Our best tip: determine your wedding favor budget and then decide one definite item to purchase. From there, price out bulk items online or at locations like Costco where you can get seasonal appropriate swag that will be function for your guests. Many retailers have discounts for buying many of one item and will offer options to fit any budget!
Until next time, happy planning!
