With the dawn of the Pinterest era of wedding planning, never before have there been so many imaginative and unique ideas in one place! When wedding personalization is basically a click of your mouse away, it’s easy to mold your wedding into the exact vision you have in mind. One way to bring your ideas to life is through DIY wedding favors. Favors are a sweet gesture to say thank you to your guests who have likely traveled, taken time off work, bought a new dress or otherwise sacrificed to celebrate your union with you.  And a thoughtful, hand made gift means so much more than a gauze bag filled with Hershey's kisses!  Check out these beautiful DIY wedding favor ideas that are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face (and your wallet will be happy, too)!

Show off your state pride with these easy state silhouette coasters! You’ll only need a few inexpensive tools for this project, which is great for brides on a budget. Are you and your groom from different places? Create an adorable two-pack of coasters featuring both of your home states!  Having a destination wedding somewhere other than home?  Throw that in for fun too!

Sea Glass Candy

If you and your fiancé have a sweet tooth, skip the predictable candy bar and opt for this home made sea glass candy instead. This gift would be the perfect compliment to a beach themed wedding and it’s simple to change the color to match your wedding vision, as well. This candy is as fun to make as it is to eat and requires just a few inexpensive ingredients.

Soy Candles

For eco-conscious couples, a homemade soy-based candle could be the perfect DIY favor for your wedding. You can choose the fragrance, color, and packing to fit your wedding style or theme. If you enjoy variety, you can choose several fragrances and let your guests choose whatever one they’d like!  This gift does require a modest background in crafting so if you think Martha Stewart speaks a foreign language grab a crafty friend or family member to help teach you the ropes.
