Wedding planning season is in full swing, and everyone is getting ready for the spring and summer shindigs!
I'm planning pieces of a wedding party myself, and I thought it was apt to share some super cute and affordable DIY wedding favors that I've come across.
My Life Would Succ Without You
Succulents are EVERYWHERE, and I can't get enough of their cuteness. They're plants, but they require much less attention that something like roses, so I'm in. Mami Talks shares this super cute and easy way to turn succulents into wedding (or any kind of party) favors.
Share your favorite cookie recipe (or box mix) and bake up a storm for your guests! Need inspiration? This is a great recipe by Pinch of Yum!
Sweet Yet Elegant
Macarons popped up on the radar years ago, and while they look really delicate and difficult to make, they're quite simple. They are also loads cheaper if you make 'em at home as opposed to buying them from the store. My recommendation: find a baker friend (or baker enthusiast) and request a favor - pay them instead of paying some random bakery.
They look beautiful packaged simply in a box, plastic or paper, some twine and a nice little thank you greeting. This photo shot by Blush Wedding Photography really showcases how the most simple things can be made to look luxurious.
All the Coffee Please
I prefer coffee over alcohol, so if you hand me a bag of grounds, I am a happy little bee. These coffee favors are super cute, affordable and practical. Everyone's gotta go back to the job that makes 'em money, so let's help them with productivity, right?
This DIY by Evermine Weddings make giving coffee super easy and chic. You'll enjoy this and the savings!
Bring the Tea to the Party
I'll take both! To please either party, you could also introduce these cute tea tins by Something Turquoise. The options are endless - you can offer a variety of teas or stick to simple black, green and white.
Soak Up the Fun and Relax Afterwards
Bath soaks are heaven in a jar. You can use recipes like these from The Kitchy Kitchen, or you can create your own. Sharing your favorite ways to relax through scents and comfort can be a really personal gift and one that people will love.
More Bathtime Fun
Bath bombs are a lot of fun to use and can be really soothing and relaxing. Want to amp up bath time? Add a bath bomb to running water and add a scoop or two of bath soak. Try not to fall asleep while bathing. This recipe by Beauty Crafter is super simple, and once you have the base down, you can customize scents, textures and flavors!
For cute packaging, pack up bath bombs in paper boxes with tissue paper. Close it off with some twine and a cute thank you tag from the happy couple!
Bottled Comfort and Memories
Candles can bring forth memories, because scents are often connected to our life experiences and memories. Let your guests remember your wedding when lighting a soothing candle in their home. Encourage love to grow everywhere. This recipe by Oh Everything Handmade is wonderfully easy and customizable to your scent preferences.
Scrub Away the Worries
Sugar scrubs can be used all over the body and gently over the lips and face. It's really nice to get all that dead skin off at the end of a long week and start fresh, right? Share this wonder with your guests!
This recipe by A Pumpkin and a Princess is great! Package them in cute glass jars and send them off to their new home with your friends and family.
So there you have 9 super cute and affordable DIY wedding favors! Packaging can really take up a huge chunk of your budget, so shop around for the best prices. Everyone sells glass jars and paper bags - you'll find great deals if you take the time to compare prices.
I hope you enjoyed these, and I wish you happy wedding (or any kind of party) planning!
