DIY Wedding Favors


Planning a wedding ceremony and reception is no easy feat and requires tons of time and patience. In fact, it may be one of the most challenging things you ever have to plan for. Not to mention expensive!


Not all brides have the same budget or planning skills, but luckily, there are easy tips to help you plan and things you can do to cut the cost of your Georgia wedding without cutting the luxury.


You can do many things yourself without needing to hire a professional. If you are planning an easy-going Georgia wedding, you can easily make your own wedding favors. This is a thrilling way to get into the spirit of your wedding but also make something as luxurious as you want without spending the money.


This is the best time to start looking through Pinterest and finding ideas you love for your wedding. You will want to start making decor and wedding favors six months before your Georgia wedding. Here are some of our favorite ideas for DIY wedding favors.

Honey or Jam Jars

If there is a local farmers market, you can pick up a few jars of mini honey or jam jars. Make labels on your printer and stick them right on top. This works perfectly for those couples looking for natural or organic wedding favors. It may also be something you can make yourself depending on how much time you have and how many guests.

Something to Drink With Reusable Straws

Even wine enthusiasts will appreciate snagging a little can of vino as they leave your wedding. Add an affordable DIY touch with beautiful straws and a customized message, and you’ve got yourself a budget-friendly treat that guests will love.

Small Shot Glasses

You can easily buy plain shot glasses and add vinyl stickers if you have a Cricut machine. This can be something you give away but also useful during a toast! This makes your Georgia wedding seem so fun and will make a memorable experience for everyone.

Go for Your Favorite Scent

Something you can make a way in advance is candles! This can be a fun project for you and your spouse. Come up with your favorite scent and put them in glass jars that are your wedding colors. This is a fun way to be super unique and come up with a scent you may not find in stores. Add customized labels and let your guests take them home!

Small Floral Bouquets With Your Favorite Song

Improve your bouquet-making skills by arranging dry wedding flowers for visitors to pick up on their way out. Use sheet music instead of conventional paper cones to keep the gorgeous stems together.

Pick Out Your Favorite Flower Seeds

Encourage guests to use their green thumbs after your wedding to plant the seed for a simple and eco-friendly wedding favor. Print personalized labels to attach to flower seed packets of your choice (maybe some blossoms from your wedding decor?). If you’re throwing a casual outdoor party, place the take-home presents in a dirt-filled wheelbarrow.
