One major key to having a guest-friendly wedding is to offer them something to get excited about. Most contemporary weddings give wedding favors to their guests as a sign of appreciation for sharing this special day with the couple who marries. Of course, your guests are going to be excited about the marriage itself, but it’s always nice to receive a little something in return as a thank you for attending the wedding.
When it comes to choosing wedding favors, it’s important the favor is not only something that the guest can easily take home with them, but that it’s something they’re going to enjoy. For consistency, it’s best to choose favors based off the theme or color palette of your wedding. Normally, there is a lot of time and money that goes into planning this special day and the last thing you want is for your wedding favors to clash with the flowers or the bridesmaids’ dresses!
The summer months present some of the most exciting times for weddings because there is an abundance of beautiful things around you. Being surrounded in vibrant colors from flowers and sunshine galore, the options are endless when it comes to choosing summer wedding favors. That’s actually the hard part – trying to narrow it down to just one!
The Endless Options for Wedding Favors for Guests
Wedding favors can range from pictures, frames and candles to personalized bottle openers, glassware or coasters. There’s really no limit to your choices. But if you want a guaranteed hit, choose something that is genderless and enjoyable for all guests, both male and female. Who doesn’t love a good piece of gourmet chocolate every now and again? We’re convinced there is a type of chocolate for every occasion, weddings included, and the variety of treats available at Malley’s provides the ability to easily match any wedding theme. From packaged bars and chocolate covered pretzels to truffles and personalized gifts, we’re certain you’ll find something you love! Who wouldn’t love scrumptious, incredible and edible chocolate wedding favors?
Let’s start with the basics – packaging. You can order bulk packages, boxes or gift bags to fill with any type of chocolate from Amazon or other suppliers including Michaels, Pat Catans, JoAnn Fabrics, etc. Ordering separate packaging will give you the most wiggle room to mix and match and provide a variety of treats that your guests will love. Once you have the packaging, you have the freedom to fill them with anything you desire. Some of our best shareables include:
- Candy Bars – Guests will love our famous pretzel crunch bars or the chocolate almond bar for a nutty twist. Wedding favor idea: Place a candy bar at each plate setting, or have a glass centerpiece filled with the bars in the middle. Include your designated gift tags on each one.
- Chocolate Wafers & Mints – Choose from snow or rainbow wafers, dark peppermint patties, Malley’s Mints and more! Wedding favor idea: Order small, personalized boxes and fill them with our Malley’s Mints. Get creative by tying a silk ribbon around the box as an added touch.
- Milk & Dark Chocolate – Fan favorites: Milk Chocolate Pretzels, Pecan BillyBobs, or Dark Chocolate Nutmallow. Wedding favor idea: Fill clear, plastic gift baggies with one of the treats above. Or, choose a mix of all of the above to provide a nice variety for your guests. Tie a ribbon around the top and a trendy gift tag that includes a personalized note from the bride and groom.
- Award Winning Assortments – We do all the hard work by mixing and matching treats in our Award Winning Assortments. Our Gold Cups feature nut clusters, creams, caramels, honeycomb pieces, almond crunch, nougats and more. Wedding favor idea: Hit two birds with one stone and use these favors as place cards, as well! For the favor, order medium-sized metal tins and put a handful of our Award Winning Assortments in each one. For the name card, place a personalized label on the tin that includes the guest’s name. Now you have a wedding favor and a name card!
