Send guests away with a favor that'll make a lasting final impression at your rustic-themed wedding. If you know a lot of your guests are traveling, choose something that can be easily packed, or opt for a favor that can be enjoyed night-of, like a small treat or even pashmina scarves for a chilly outdoor reception. If you're not sure where to start, pull inspiration from your wedding theme and check out our favorite rustic wedding favors below.
