It’s a well-known tradition to give your wedding guests a small gift or favour to thank them for celebrating your special day with you – but when your wedding is in destination, planning these little gifts can be tricky! We rounded up a few of our favourite destination wedding favour ideas to help you thank your guests for making the trip down south to celebrate your big day.
We always recommend that couples bring their own insulated travel mugs to the resort for their destination wedding week. Not only do they keep your drinks cold longer, but they’re much more environmentally friendly than disposable plastic cups and straws! Customized travel mugs are a cute and thoughtful gift for your guests that they can use during their time at the resort and when they return back home. You can customize the mugs with your guests’ names or your wedding date and, for an added personalized touch, you can order mugs in your wedding colour scheme.
Wedding welcome bags
After spending the night celebrating your big day, your guests will appreciate thoughtful ‘wedding recovering bags’! You can order customized totes with your wedding date, destination or whatever else you like and then fill them with a variety of essentials such as ibuprofen, sunscreen, after-sun gel, sunglasses and more. These favours are easy to pack in your suitcase and bring with you to your destination wedding. We suggest putting them together before you leave so you can focus on enjoying your special week when you arrive.
Give your guests the gift of comfort with handheld fans! Not only are these adorable options, they’re also practical, given that your guests will likely spend most of their vacation basking in the sun. Folding fans will help ensure that your guests are cool and comfortable during their entire vacation, from your beach ceremony to sipping cocktails by the pool and every sun-soaked moment in between. Depending on your style, you can choose delicate silk fans that match your colour scheme or wooden fans with your names and wedding date engraved along the side.
Love so bright, your guests have to put shades on! Sunglasses are an essential item when you’re down south and make thoughtful wedding favours for your guests which they can use during your beachside ceremony and poolside for the rest of the week. Buy sunglasses in your décor’s colour scheme and have your wedding date and initials printed on the sunglasses’ arms for a personal touch. For your wedding party, you can even have the arms emblazoned with “Best Man”, “Maid of Honour”, “Flower Girl” and more.
Make memories with your friends and family by planning a group excursion with Sunwing Experiences as a wedding favour. It’s a great way to explore your destination and get off the resort for a day! Set sail along the coast on a catamaran cruise while toasting to your nuptials, explore your destination’s historic landmarks, spend the day riding an ATV through lush tropical landscapes and more. No matter what kind of excursion you choose, your guests will have a blast and appreciate the gesture. Plus, when you book a group excursion you can save on the total cost per person!
