It’s easy to fall in love with the idea of a summer wedding. The longer days and warmer weather put almost everybody in a celebratory mood. If you’re planning a nuptial affair in the season, you’ll want to capitalize on the good vibes. The best way to do just that? By spreading them further with the help of seasonal wedding favors. Lucky for you, we’ve got a ton of great inspiration for thanking your summertime guests. You want your favors to be just as fun and unique as your wedding day.
How many times have you stepped out of your car this summer and realized you left your sunglasses at home? It’s the worst. Just imagine your guests’ delight when they spot your sunglasses wedding favors! Not only are they cute, but you are totally saving them from having to squint through the entire ceremony.
It might seem silly, but fans are one of our very favorite wedding favors. It keeps you cool during the event, but after the wedding that handy little fan goes straight to the pedicure kit (I kid you not, I still use a fan from an event five years ago)!
In the rush to get ready your guests might have forgotten their sunscreen right alongside their sunglasses. Sunscreen towelettes are such a great invention. Sun protection and no mess? Sold!
While we tend to think of lip balm as more of a winter wedding favor, we actually need a little protection on our lips year-round. Find one with a sunscreen that is fragrance and color-free, so that everyone can enjoy!
There is no su
mmertime treat better than campfire s’mores (and no, microwaving them doesn’t count). Sitting around in a circle with friends and family, trying to find the perfect spot of coals for your marshmallows, making s’mores is an experience. Share s’mores kits with guests as a sweet goodbye.
Another summer-appropriate indulgence is an ice-cold bottle of Coca-Cola. After a long hot day in the sun, your guests will welcome one of these sodas for the ride home. You can now also readily find Mexican Coca-Cola which is made with cane sugar instead of corn syrup.
If you are having a nautical wedding (or just one that takes place at the beach), look no further than saltwater taffy for your favors. Whether in the traditional rolls from East Coast boardwalks, or the tiny chews (below) that have become more mainstream, saltwater taffy is a colorful favor that tastes like summer!
Fun hats will keep guests shaded during an outdoor celebration, but they’ll last way longer than that.
Bring back the sparklers of childhood summers for a fun favor that doubles as exit décor.
Tons of honey is harvested during the summer, so you’ll have no trouble sourcing these delicious favors.
