10 Summer Wedding Favor Ideas

10 Summer Wedding Favor Ideas



You want your favors to be just as fun and unique as your wedding day. For summer brides, we’ve gathered ten favor ideas perfect for sunny, warm-weather weddings!








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!







Lip Balm


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!



Fresh Produce


Summer weddings are at a time of year when fresh fruits and vegetables are aplenty. Select produce that is right in-season to find reasonable prices on bulk amounts. Personally, we love a mini-box filled with berries, but if you love your veggies, share bags of radishes and greens!









There is no summertime 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.








Saltwater Taffy


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!







Balsam Airplanes


Looking for a playful favor for your travel-themed or destination wedding?  While you can give things like luggage tags and vintage postcards year-round, balsam airplanes are ideal for summer. After dinner your guests can amuse themselves flying their new toys.







Sparkling Wine


There’s just something about chilled champagne on a summer evening. Pass out pretty pink cans of sparkling rose (below) accompanied by striped straws in your color palette.
