Winter Wedding Favors To Celebrate The Season

September 30, 2022 | riley

There’s nothing we love more than winter weddings here at Junebug. The cooler weather, the gorgeous snowy scenery, hot cocktails to keep you feeling warm and fuzzy–what’s more magical? Giving your guests favors to thank them for celebrating you isn’t a tradition we see going anywhere anytime soon. So if you’re having your own seasonal celebration and want to gift your friends and family something that fits your cold weather theme, you’re in luck. We’re rounding up some winter wedding favors that your guests will actually want to take home at the end of the night.

Winter Wedding Favors

1. Blankets

To ensure that your guests stay nice and toasty during your big day, pass out blankets. They’re the perfect favor to pass out before your ceremony–especially if it’s outdoors–so they can wrap up in it if they get a little chilly throughout the evening. And what’s cuter than a sign that says, “to have and to hold in case you get cold!”

Shop blankets: To Have and to Hold in Case You Get Cold Tags; Fleece Wedding Blanket; Personalized Wedding Pashmina; 100% Cotton Throw Blankets

2. Fuzzy Socks

Speaking of cozy favors, fuzzy socks are another great option. There’s nothing quite like kicking your feet up with a cup of hot chocolate when it’s too frigid to leave the house, after all. And with fuzzy socks, you can prevent your guests from getting cold feet too.

3. Hot Chocolate

We’ve seen weddings have hot chocolate bars, but why not allow your guests to take some home with them? Pass out favors that include hot chocolate powder and marshmallows, so they can enjoy a cup of cocoa and be reminded of your special day.

There is no such thing as too many candles, so give them the gift of another. One of the best parts of this favor is that there are so many different options out there–from tealight candles in mini tree trunks to classic candles in tins.

5. Recovery Kit

If you’re hosting an NYE wedding or you know your wedding is sure to be quite the party that will leave your guests with a headache the next morning, offer them recovery kits complete with pain relievers, anti-acids, lip balm, gym, etc. Your guests will appreciate the thoughtful touch when they’re struggling to get out of bed.

We firmly believe that edible favors are some of the best options because who doesn’t love food? Whether you bake them yourself or hire a baker to create custom cookies for you, they’re an easy, affordable option that will be a hit with everyone. They also can act as a replacement for a wedding cake if you’re looking to save a little money in your budget.

7. Coffee To Go

If you and your significant other are big coffee lovers, give your guests a caffeine boost with coffee favors. This could look like bagged beans or a late-night coffee bar complete with different flavored syrups, Bailey’s, and Kahlua.

8. Maple Syrup

Winter mornings are meant to be spent eating pancakes with a hot cup of Joe. To keep your guests thinking of you, treat your guests to maple syrup for their future delicious breakfasts. It’s the perfect favor for rustic weddings in places such as Canada, Vermont, New York, Michigan, etc.

9. Dried Flowers

Winter is not known for its fresh blooms, which is why dried florals are such a great nod to the season. If you’re hosting a micro wedding, use the mini-dried flower bundles as part of your centerpieces and allow guests to take them home once the night is over. If your wedding is larger, opt for favors such as dried flower magnets.

S’mores are a low-cost option that everyone is sure to love. Simply go to your local grocery store, buy graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate bars, and create individual bags full of the supplies they need to enjoy the dessert. And the “S’more Love” tags make them all that more charming.
