Unique Macarons


Delicious macarons in tiny favor boxes have been such a popular wedding favor for the last few years. This cute DIY idea offers a new spin on the trend with cactus-shaped macarons housed in mini pots.

Personalized Chocolate Bark


He likes dark chocolate bark with pecans, you prefer white chocolate with raisins. Your guests can choose which one they prefer with this super-easy DIY favor with labels attached to the top of each bag.

Snack Mixes


If you two are more salty-sweet people, make your own snack mix together and pass it out in tiny cartons.




modern favor 5



Geode-Inspired Candy


Geodes have been everywhere this year, from place card holders to invitation illustrations. Now, you can have geode-inspired favors to match your other details with jars filled with rock candy. We especially like how this example is sealed with a friendship bracelet.




modern favor 6



Paper Potted Succulents


Buy wide paper treat cups from your local craft or baking supply shop and tuck succulents inside. Personalize with names to double as place cards, or just affix a simple favor tag if you plan on guests grabbing them on the way out the door.





modern favor 7



Infused Vodka


The party can keep going after the guests get home with these DIY infused vodka favors. Granted, your home will smell like a distillery while you make this favor, but the smiles on the faces of family and friends will make the project well worth it.




modern favor 8



Confetti Fortune Packets


While you could certainly make these festive confetti fortunes year-round, we love them for a NYE wedding. Guests can rip open the packets to reveal a handful of sparkling confetti and a fortune you’ve created.




modern favor 9



Decorated Matchboxes


For a bright and playful DIY, make your own matchbox favor boxes. Inside, you can tuck a tiny favor, but the charm of this favor is the wrapping.




modern favor 10



Wooden Bookmarks


You can make a mini sign with thicker cuts of wood or handy bookmarks with thin sheets of balsam. Either way, these calligraphy favors are utterly elegant. Don’t have the best handwriting? Hire a callligrapher, but pre-cut the pieces of wood to save money.
