28 Fantastic Wedding Favors That Are Useful & Unique

“Ohh this wedding favor is useless.”
There goes the favor in the rubbish bin.

How many of you do that frequently? Raise your hand. I’m one of the guilty ones. :P Truthfully, the wedding favor I dislike most are the imprinted favors with the couple names and wedding date. Sure it can be romantic for the bride and groom but how practical can that be for their guest? Unless it’s well hidden!

I also don’t love favors that are too norm. I’ve received too many chocolate, candies and cookies from weddings and you better believe me when I say wedding favors are not one of the things I look forward to receiving.
Overall, I find giving out useless favors or favors that guests have no interest in is just a waste of money. That’s why in this modern time, there are couples who choose to forgo giving out favors at all.

Personally, I welcome giving out wedding favors because I think it’s the best way for the couple to show their appreciation/gratitude to the guests. Finding a favor that your guest will love and want is not rocket science.

I’ve come up with a list of 28 practical wedding favors that your wedding guests will find them useful and unique. Please give it a scroll below. Additional bonus: creative sayings for the favors.
