The Best Wedding Favor Ideas for Each Season

Give your guests the perfect send-off with one of these seasonal favorites.
by Maggie Seaver

Whether you’re tying the knot in the height of summer, the depths of winter or some time in between, it’s always a good a idea to send your guests home with a little something more than a hug and a “thank-you.” The sky's the limit when it comes to wedding favors, but that thought can almost make your decision more overwhelming—we totally get it. No matter which route you take, always consider the time of year, your wedding location and what you think your guests will actually use and enjoy. Gift your guests a treat they can munch on immediately (like candy apples or ice cream cones for the road) or something they’ll savor for a while (think: potted herbs or a cozy hat). Here, our top five favor ideas by season.
