8 Fall-Themed Wedding Favors to Delight Your Guests

What’s not to love about an elegant Fall wedding? Beautifully changing leaves and pleasantly cool temperatures bring an earthy element to the celebration that can’t be replicated at any other time of the year.

It’s no surprise that August, September, and October are the most popular months to plan a wedding in the United States. Exploring fall-themed wedding favors may be one of the most fun activities a bride and groom do during their planning phase. So if you’re planning a Fall wedding and have yet to select your favors, consider these classic seasonal options.

1. Fragrant Soaps

          Mason jars are a smart choice for fall-themed wedding favors because you can use them in a variety of ways. Fill them with recipe ingredients for Fall favorites like hot chocolate, or fill them with mints or other small treats. You can also paint mason jars with Fall colors and fill them with flowers for each table of guests. These are a beautiful choice for wedding and bridal shower favors alike.

          5. Tree Souvenirs

              The most common complaint you’ll hear about Fall is that it doesn’t last long enough before the frigid Winter temperatures set in. These adorable glass vials capture elements of Fall for your guests to enjoy year-round. Pine cones are an effective choice if you’re going for a more natural vibe.

              7. Kindling Candles

                  Depending on the date of your wedding, caramel apples can be a timely and delicious surprise for your guests. At first thought, they may seem too Halloween-ish to be suitable, but the right design changes everything. They can be decorated with Fall colors or even bride-and-groom-themed. It’s doubtful your guests have ever had such fancy and indulgent caramel apples in their lifetime.

                  9. Smores Kits

                    Fall is never complete without a bonfire outing. Even if your wedding won’t feature this, a wedding smores kit is the ideal gift to ensure your guests have everything they need to create their own. You can make this favor yourself or purchase premade sets including gram crackers, marshmallows, chocolate, and matches.

                    10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

                    A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

                    To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

                    1. Camping

                    A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

                    2. Staycation

                    You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

                    3. Island Getaway

                    People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

                    4. Fancy Resort

                    Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

                    5. Road Trip

                    The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

                    6. Charter a Boat

                    If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

                    7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

                    If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

                    8. Themed Retreats

                    There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

                    9. Working Honeymoon

                    Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

                    10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

                    Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
