Wedding Favor Ideas That Are Useful To Guests
Just to make your money worth it, spend on wedding favors that are very useful. Loss of ideas? Here are some of the things you may want to consider:
- Small champagne bottles
Just to give your guests something to bring home in case they can’t get enough of the party at your wedding, a bottle of small champagne is a good idea.

Especially during winter, a blanket is a good gift to give away. Some couples make it personalized the only downside is what if there are guests who appear at your wedding unexpectedly? Instead of personalizing the towel, stitch in a generic design, like your initials and the date of your wedding.
