Realistic DIY Favors

Showing your guests appreciation for their attendance is important when it comes to proper wedding etiquette. Yet, a lot of couples do not plan ahead for the cost of their favors. These great DIY favors are sure to leave a lasting impression without breaking the bank! 


Canned jams or jellies are great for any season wedding. Whether you do a classic grape jelly, savory fig spread or a peppered strawberry jam (like I did) you can't go wrong. I ordered my homemade jams (pictured below) from the local Kathy Tucker and her brand Nana's Pantry. I bought thank you labels and twine from Hobby Lobby and ordered custom stickers online for the lids. It was so easy to put together and guests loved them! 


Sweet Tea Kit

Gather your favorite sweet tea brew and add some small packets of sugar to make an adorable customized sweet tea kit. Print out brewing instructions and labels at home for your box. Add a colored ribbon or bow to tie in your wedding colors and let your guests enjoy!

Hot Sauce

Thank your guests for spicing up your night by spicing up theirs! First, buy large bottles of your favorite hot sauce(s). Order miniature glass bottles and labels online. Transfer your hot sauce to the mini bottles and add the labels. Guests will love this unique favor! 



We love these adorable jars of popcorn kernels! Buy the kernels in bulk and add them to the jar of your choice. Tie patterned fabric or kraft paper to the top of the lid for an added pop! 


Spicy Dip Mix

These adorable dip mixes carry a tasty punch guests are sure to love. Put the spices in small glass vials and tie labels to the top for even more cuteness. Something Turquoise has a variety of yummy recipes here

Trail Mix

We all know opposites attract - like sweet and salty! Buy small goodie bags and print the label of your choice at home on card stock for a savory favor.

Warm up guests at your fall or winter wedding with these super cute cocoa kits. Drop in marshmallows and caramel cubes for an added detail.
