Wedding favors are an excellent way to thank your guests for celebrating with you on your wedding day. More often than not, though, these favors end up being forgotten the next day. To make sure your gift doesn't get forgotten, we've compiled a few tips that will leave a good impression on your guests.

These types of items are sure to please your guests, because it's useful and will be something they use regularly.
2) Personalize your gift.

If you love a particular treat at the local bakery, gift this goodie your guests. You may also want to share an old family recipe and include a few essential ingredients.
3) Make it a welcome bag.
If you have a destination wedding, consider gifting items that will serve your guests well for the duration of the wedding.

If it's a spring and summer wedding, include things like sunscreen, hats, fun soaps, and a guide to local restaurants and activities they can enjoy during their stay.
4) Make it an edible gift.
There is nothing wrong with making the wedding favor an edible gift. It can be a food item unique to the wedding location or it can be an edible item unique to you, personally. It can also be something that you know your guests will appreciate at the end of the evening or even the next morning, such as jam and scones in a little gift bag.
5) Keep it simple.
