Wedding Favors are a wonderful way to honor your guests at your wedding. Today I am sharing an idea for three different DIY wedding favors. They are inexpensive and fun to make!

Three Easy DIY Wedding Favors

I know there aren’t a lot of weddings happening this summer and it absolutely breaks my heart. But I am guessing there is a lot of wedding planning happening about now. Today I am going to share an idea I came up with for a unique and fun DIY wedding favor.

One of the great ways to honor your guests is with wedding favors.  These favors are a great way to send your guests home with something they’ll cherish forever. The fun thing about wedding favors is they can be made no matter what budget or style. 

On Pinterest, there are a gazillion photos of wedding favor ideas. But I noticed that in every photo the wedding favors are exactly the same.

I came up with an idea to make three different kinds of DIY wedding favors. Having three options allows your guests to choose which one they want!

Just so you know, I have partnered with two different bloggers, Sara at Twelve on Main and Jackie at Finding Lovely who are also sharing wedding favor ideas. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see their amazing DIY ideas!

Season. Scrub. Soak.

All three of these DIY wedding favors are homemade and very inexpensive to make. Plus, they can be made very quickly.

I named each of the three wedding favors Season, Scrub, and Soak.

“Season” is a Rosemary Avocado Oil. “Scrub” is Lemon Rose Sugar Scrub. And “Soak” is Lavender Bath Salts.

  1. I think these wedding favors are so lovely Leslie. I like the idea of giving the guests three different favors to choose from…something for everyone 🙂

  2. As a wedding venue owner, and wedding planner your ideas are delightful! I am pinning them to our Pinterest “Favor” boards and thank you for sharing. Home made favors are simply the best, and these are something that will really get used perhaps and not just tossed aside. …that’s what I love. Just delightful !

  3. These are such thoughtful wedding favors ! I have a question, the ‘season’ oil looks like it has rosemary in it, not eucalyptus. And I thought eucalyptus was poisonous ?

    1. Well, that is what happens when you write a blog post after midnight! Thanks for the heads up. I updated everything because of course, it is rosemary! Aargh.

  4. LOVE these Leslie. Thinking about a shower I might be hosting in the future.
    Just wondering about the rose petals. Will they stay pink? I would have thought they would turn brown and yuck.
