    1. A 100-pack of succulents in an assortment of pastel colors, perfect for any couple who wants to give a favor that doesn't ~succ~.

    I gave out succulents at my own wedding, so I can assure you they will be a big hit! My guests are still gushing over their lil' plants months and sending me pics of their growth. I'd definitely call it a wedding win.

    Promising review: "These arrived absolutely perfect! They were packed so well. When I opened the boxes, every single plant looked so healthy that they actually looked plastic. Can't wait to showcase these as our table assignments/weddings favors for our big day! Would definitely order again!!!" β€”Kelli Wanzeck

    2. And "let love grow" paper stakes you can customize with your initials to really make your favor memorable.

    4. Packets of hot cocoa, so your guests can warm up after attending your ~super chill~ winter wedding.


    You can dress up these decadent packets of hot chocolate by tossing them into clear plastic pouches and adding a stick that says something like "hot cocoa hugs and marshmallow kisses from the new couple." (Try not to gag, OK?).

    Get a pack of 15 from Amazon for $13.90.

    5. Or individual tea bags to put in a decorative pouch with a simple gift tag for a classy favor.


    Pop these tea packets into a pouch and place a sticker over it that says, "it's a beauTEAful life with you" or "thank you for coming to our parTEA." Done and done.

    Promising review: "This tea is one I especially enjoy. It not only smells great while it's brewing, I can ready taste the JASMINE in the tea. So many I've tried don't have the Jasmine taste like STASH does. And the packets are so pretty. We use these specifically when we make gift bags." β€”Belinda C.

    Promising review: "I love the idea of sending a card that people won't throw away, and this note paper worked perfectly for my thank you cards after my baby shower and the birth of my child. I did write a little P.S. at the very bottom of each note, so people would be sure to know that they can plant the paper to grow flowers. And all of the recipients really LOVED the note paper and the idea of growing flowers from it instead of throwing it away. The paper is pretty thin, but not too fragile." β€”Ashley

    21. Stemless wine glasses, so your family can raise a toast to your marriage every time they open a bottle of red or white.


    Promising review: "I ordered these as wedding favors and the product is great. Exactly as shown on the picture and very good quality. I ordered them about a week before my wedding because I couldn't find something that I truly liked until I saw these. I contacted customer service to ask if there was any way I would get them before the wedding and to my delight, they arrived a day before the wedding. Outstanding customer service and product. Very satisfied." β€”Aracely Alegre
