Unique DIY Wedding Favor Ideas

Before you say, “I Do,” say “I Did It” with unforgettable “Do It Yourself” wedding favors. Whether you want to tap into your creative side or you’re looking for a budget-friendly way to say a special, “thank you” to your guests, here are some fun creative wedding ideas to get you inspired.


Great ideas are just around the corner (literally)

You don’t have to look far for some custom wedding favor ideas. Your own pantry is filled with them. You can take a simple Mason or jelly jar and turn it into a stylish gift. Fill it with your favorite recipe ingredients (how ‘bout some personalized M&M’S?), add a homemade label, and voilà, you’ve created personalized favors for your big day.


Let everyone catch the bouquet

Let your guests enjoy the gift of a sweetly-scented home with homemade potpourri. A few weeks before your wedding, air dry a mixture of dried flowers, herbs, cinnamon sticks, and fruit rinds, and let the combined ingredients sit in an airtight container for a week. Place the potpourri into gift bags or sachets and your guests will have a gift that lingers long after the big day.


Spread the warmth

Here’s a simple way to remind guests of the warmth between you and your significant other. Create a candle by adding essential oils to a paraffin, soy, or beeswax base, and transfer into a charming container like a tea cup or jar with a wick in the center.


M&M’S, the sweetest way to celebrate your wedding

Deliciously stylish, M&M’S chocolate candies make an inspired choice for your DIY candy wedding favors.

Your palette? 20 incredible colors — from classic white and elegant platinum to light blue and dark pink. You can create unique chocolate wedding favors that match or complement your theme. Impress your guests with personalized M&M’S. Add a photo of the happy couple, select wedding images, or add words that show your appreciation.
