Fall is now the most popular season for weddings — and for good reason. That fiery autumnal foliage is to die for! It’s easy to be spellbound by the beauty and whimsicality of the season, with its earthy color schemes, savory scents, and fresh flavors. Why not channel that energy into your wedding planning? From the fashion to the flowers to the favors, embrace fall flare!
Your wedding favors give you a chance to not only incorporate your personality and relationship, but also to get carried away creatively with the spirit of the season. There are endless ways to manifest the magic of fall in your favors, but here are a few creative ideas for inspiration.
Fall-Inspired Wedding Favors
We all know coffee, especially pumpkin spice, is a quintessential fall indulgence. A great way to send your guests off into the brisk and breezy season is with a brand new coffee mug! You can custom order some and have them personalized, or paint them yourself if you’re a DIY-enthusiast. Add a small bag of fall flavored coffee inside the mug for an extra treat!
Create your own candle with a medley of fall scents using an easy DIY guide (like this one). You can pick whichever scents you’d like to embody that seasonal spirit. Pumpkin, apple cinnamon, caramel, and cranberry are all autumn staples, but the choice is yours!
Warm your guests’ hearts and bodies by providing blankets as your wedding favors! The best part: these favors can double as a way to keep your guests cozy and comfortable during the ceremony. Have your wedding date and your names embroidered on them to make them extra special.
For a twisted take on an autumn favorite—maple syrup—why not offer miniature bottles of maple-flavored whiskey? Replace the label or add a personalized tag so guests will remember your big day! Bonus fall flare points if the whiskey bottles are shaped like leaves!
Mini Recipe Books
Have mini recipe books, filled with all your favorite fall recipes for cookies, soups, pies, stuffing, and everything in between, designed and printed as cute and creative wedding favors that your guests will actually use! These are sure to make an impression and bring a smile to everyone’s faces.
Homemade Lip Balm
The breezy weather that accompanies the fall season can dry out your skin and lips, so what better solution than handing out homemade lip balm! Follow a DIY recipe to concoct the blend of your choosing and label your balms with a witty phrase or your wedding details. They’re usable, creative, and seasonally inspired—a perfect combination!
Celebrate the Season!
Fall is a season of welcomed change; an esoteric and elegant embracing of nature. Send your wedding guests off into the season with a little gift that embodies those feelings, and they’ll feel the gentle warmth of autumn and your love as they embark!
