Destination Weddings- Favors We Love
By Hannah Noel of Ashley Gain Weddings & Events

It’s officially wedding season!

You have dreamed about it your whole life. You have to have an over the top destination wedding.

A bride pours her heart into her wedding by planning every detail and has dreamed about the day since she was able to wrap her bed sheet around her head and wear it as a veil. So if this sounds like you then congratulations, you are officially a bride-to-be! Like the other two million brides getting married annually in the United States, you are going to need each detail to be perfect.  That inlcudes your wedding favors.

Using your wedding destination theme as the core inspiration for your favors will allow guests to take part of the location home with them.

Let’s start with one of the most popular destination wedding locations; The beach! If you have chosen a beach as your wedding hot spot then there are endless fun possibilities to incoporate your surroundings into favors. For example, you can purchase small sized beach bags or sand buckets and then fill it with goodies inspired by your wedding.

Another chic and creative favor would be a simple message in a bottle. Thank each guest for joining you on your special day by giving them a note sealed tightly by a cork in a classic small bottle.

Love on the Wild Side

What about a Vegas wedding? The city that screams fun and never shuts down is a fantastic destination for your dream wedding.

When Vegas comes to mind you probably think of casinos with tables full of playing cards, poker chips, and fancy attire. Incorporating these three things into wedding favors should be easy. Give your guests a small bottle of champagne to take home or you could personalized poker chips or playing cards.

You and your fiancé have a love for travel. You are jet-setters extraordinaire!

International vows... enough said.

Give guests some of your worldly view by incorporating the countries history and specialties into their take home gifts. If your guests have traveled across the world to join you on your special day, a mini suitcase filled with goodies for your guests would be a great gift after a fabulous wedding.

Another idea is to give out chic luggage tags to remind guests of the trip they took to see you take your vows each time they pulled their suitcase out for their next adventure.

It’s very important to treat your guests with the upmost respect, especially when they have traveled hours or possibly even days for your special date. So, giving them a token of appreciation can come in all shapes and sizes. It’s truly the thought that counts.
