Fun DIY Wedding Favors for 2013!

There are so many great wedding favor ideas!  Sometimes these little thank you gifts can turn in to a bigger expense than expected.  A great way to save some money is to make these favors yourself.  When choosing your favor the most important thing to remember is to make it personal to you and your fiance.  Here are a few ideas I ran across that I think are great favor ideas that you can not only make yourself but are useful or at least tasty treats for your guests!

I love Southern weddings and what is more southern than grits?  If you and your fiance love southern food why not give “Grits and Gratitude”?  You can order bags for the grits or even make them yourself.  Filled with grits and tied with a ribbon is an easy, adorable southern favor!

Another great Southern DIY favor is to give a late night snack favor with a Coke (perfect for an Atlanta wedding) and a home baked cookie.  I might even substitute the cookie for some peanuts!

Mason jars are always a great gift! You can even put your signature drink in them during the wedding and let your guests take them home!  Just order personalized decals and stick them to the mason jars for an instant favor!

In the summer use mason jars to make a DIY ice cream jar.  All you need is some rock salt, sugar, vanilla powder and creamer.  Make some cute tags to tie around the jar and a perfect favor for a hot summer wedding day!

If you have a favorite drink to share with your guests give that to them for the wedding! Take a look at these cute glasses with a muddler and recipe card!

If you are a green bride, I love the idea of personalized bags filled with seeds saying “May Good Things Grow”  so guests can make their own flower garden or herb garden.  Or look at making birdseed hearts for guests to hang from trees at their house.
