Don’t Choose Boring Favors – Make an impression!


Wedding season is amping up for us here at Andrew Samplawski Photography and one of the fun things I love to personally photograph are the wedding details! Details make everything and when you have unique and different details – they make your wedding memorable because sometimes “it’s the small things in life.”

Some pretty awesome wedding favors that your wedding guests won’t hate… I’m pretty confident that I can promise that! Give your guests something they’ll actually want to eat, drink or keep. Below are 20 fun and useful favor ideas that they will not hate. Some things might take a bit of work creating your own, but definitely worth every bit of it and why not have a beer or glass of wine while you creating something customized for your wedding!
