All weddings are memorable in their own way – from the best man roast and the lemon-inspired bridesmaid dresses to the mystery stuffed chicken and your great-aunt’s lopsided wig. But, these memories are what make your guests gush the next morning about what a great time they had. Give your friends and family one more reason to remember your wedding day with a unique wedding favor that will save and walk down memory lane every time they use it.



Lip gloss

Separating the men and women is so old school, but your ladies-in-waiting will fall head over heels for the Benefit Love at First Shine Lipgloss Value Set ($26, Macy’s). These glosses will keep lips camera-ready and perfectly kissable, while at the same time nourished and hydrated. The velvety smooth set features Benefit’s signature lip gloss colors including bubblegum pink, fuschia), clear, hot pink, bright pink coral and soft berry.


For the bachelors, give them a traditional flask to show your appreciation, but with a unique twist. The HDE Mini Quick Liquor Shot Keychain Flask ($3.95, is ideal for one-ounce of your preferred drink so that you and your buddies can toast to good health and marriage throughout the night.

Bottle Opener

A semi-do-it-yourself wedding favor will give your gift a personal touch that your guests will “ooh” and “aah” over. The Key Shaped Bottle Opener Favor Kit ($22.01/18 per kit, is an easily assembled favor that comes with 18 key-shaped bottle openers, blank tags and ribbon so that you can personalize each one. These favors are dual-purpose and can be used as table place cards as well.

Seed Bookmarks

Being eco-friendly can be challenging for any nuptial day, but you can give your guests a little something that they won’t toss into the circular file and will reap the benefits shortly after the weeding. The spring-inspired Seed Bookmarks ($11.95/pack of 12, the knot Wedding Shop) are environmentally friendly and perfect for a garden reception-themed wedding. These plantable bookmarks look lovely on your tables and can be personalized.


Although drinks, food and desserts are in abundance on any wedding day, a sweet treat to take home at the end of a reception always leaves a lasting impression. The Bride and Groom Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookies ($1.96 – $3.91, celebrate your day and look adorable displayed on a table as your guests are leaving. Each Oreo cookie features either a wedding-gown clad bride or a tuxedo-wearing groom and are deliciously covered with rich, creamy chocolate.
