Providing guests with a wedding favor is easy, but gifting one that makes a lasting impression is not. When couples ask, “what makes a wedding stand out?”, my answer is always the same. The personal touches, attention to detail, and unexpected elements are usually what guests remember. These things don’t have to be big and it’s often the smallest details that shine through.
Wedding favors are a great place to think out of the box and get creative. Personalization and customized favors don’t have to be cheesy. Experienced graphic designers and quality favors are they key to keeping the look of your favors clean and professional while still delivering a one of a kind item to guests.
If you’re stuck on favor ideas, food is usually my first recommendation. An unexpected treat is always a winner and the key to guests’ hearts. If you can personalize that experience with a unique food choice or a custom favor box or bag, chances are they’ll remember it even more. For more inspiration, check out our list below with 10 great personalized wedding favor ideas.

5. Personalized Wedding Dessert Favor Bags
Use a late-night treat or sweet dessert as your wedding favor.

The bags are lined to make them grease resistant, measure 4 3/4 inches wide x 6 3/4 inches tall, and can be personalized with your names and wedding date. While this design is great for cookies, candies, or donuts, check out this design for hot pretzels or this design if you’re offering popcorn.

The custom printed favor bags are made with 100 percent cotton and feature a drawstring closure. The bags are available in three various sizes – 3×5 inches, 4×6 inches, or 5×7 inches.

The personalized labels are made on high quality adhesive paper and fit most standard sized wine bottles.
