Deciding on what favors to send your guests home with is perhaps one of the funnest parts of planning your big day. These take-home gifts should reflect your style as bride and groom, as well as add that special personal touch of saying “thanks”. Today, I bring some inspiration for finding the perfect {and chic} way to show gratitude. Love your cake? Send guests home with a reminder of just how gorgeous it was with custom cookies that look just like your cake {via}. Sucker for all things nostalgic? Remind your guests of their childhood with take-home cookies and milk; I adore Ronnybrook Farms’ mini bottles {via}. Calm your prenuptial nerves with a little DIY project, get your grrom to work and jar some fresh-made preserves or bake a batch of sugar cookies together {via}. Super considerate or super indecisive? Try bestowing your guests with an assortment of take home treats, they make lovely displays! {via Martha Stewart Weddings} Got a green thumb? Set out tiers of flowering plants on cake stands for a sweet and stylish look {via Martha Stewart Weddings}. Budget-conscious couples can use favors to dress up simple centerpieces; a small arrangement of blush-hued flowers look lovely surrounded by deliciously wrapped candy {via Martha Stewart Weddings}. Instead of serving a grooms cake during the reception, why not send your guests home with a slice? For a divine look – try arranging individual-slice boxes in a way to mimic a real cake and top it off with fresh cut flowers! {via Martha Stewart Weddings} Remember, even small gestures can be amazing when displayed in a gorgeous way: try flanking a tray of treats with beautiful arrangements {via Martha Stewart Weddings}. Here’s a very green idea: attach packets of seeds to escort cards and display them in a wagon filled with grass! {via}

Hope these ideas were inspiring! Until next Wednesday, xoxo, Wanwisa

    oh! I love the last pic with the wagon! a bright red radio flyer would work for so many different styles… adds a little whimsy (not to mention mobility!)
