From the invitations to the décor to the getaway, you want every detail of your wedding weekend to “wow” your guests (we totally get it!). But creating a wedding weekend that brings your love to life and pleases your guests is no easy feat. Surprise and delight your nearest and dearest with favors that they’ll actually love! The sweet memories of your wedding day will be sure to linger long after you say “I do.”
Sip on This
With summer comes longer days and refreshing cocktails. Give your guests a taste of your signature summer-sipper with cocktail kits to go. Think mini bottles of champagne and St. Germain, mini bottles of tequila and margarita mix, or Jack Daniels and classic Coke bottles personalized with your monogram. Even better is homemade wine or limoncello. Add a recipe tag or custom label and your guests will be toasting to you from afar.
Keep them Cool
Waking up the morning of your wedding to blue skies and sunshine is every bride’s dream come true. But the summer months can also give way to blazing heat, a passing shower, or even a chilly ocean breeze. Help guests stay comfortable with umbrellas, fans, or even pashminas to stave off any unforeseen weather. And if your ceremony is under the glaring sun, custom sunglasses will keep guests’ eyes shielded and looking cool. Your guests will thank you!
Transport your guests back to their childhood days of summer with nostalgic treats. A s’mores kit they can use back at home will have them reminiscing about their time around the campfire. And a DIY candy and dessert bar stocked at the end of the night serving your summer favorites, like saltwater taffy, cotton candy, and popsicles, will leave your guests with a sweet ending they won’t forget.
If physical favors aren’t your thing, making a donation in honor of your wedding guests to a summer-themed charity will surely show your guests you care. Did you attend the most magical summer camp? Make a donation towards financial aid for campers who can’t afford to attend otherwise. Or even sports equipment and games at the local Boys and Girls Club or YMCA. Volunteering your time in honor of your guests at a charity race you run in each summer is another great option. The possibilities are endless, and your guests will love the personal sentiment.
