Marriage equality on the rise in the deep south!

There’s certainly something very magical about this time of year. The icy detailing outside just adds to the wonderland romance for a winter wedding and we have five seasonal favor ideas that your guests are sure to love:

evergreen-tree-seedling-gay-winter-wedding-favor

Also doubling as seat assignments, these evergreen tree seedling favors are eco-friendly and symbolize the growing love that you’re celebrating. Store them in miniature burlap sacks (as seen here), Champagne flutes, or wrapped in decorated pots. Available at Nursery Men, with prices ranging from $37 for a pack of 25 to $190 for 100-pack, depending on tree variety.

 

hot cocoa mason jar gay winter wedding favor

Nothing is cozier than hot cocoa on a cold night, so give your guests something special to sip on in the comfort of their own home. Simple and inexpensive to DIY, however busy brides and grooms can also purchase them. Available at Half Baked for $8/jar.

 

hand warmers gay winter wedding favors

If you’ve opted to wed in a winter wonderland, keep guests toasty with mini luxe cashmere hand warmers, filled with reusable heating gel packets, as favors. Available at Restoration Hardware for $10/pair (originally $20).

 

snowflake soaps gay winter wedding favors

Take inspiration from Father Winter and give your guests snowflake-shaped soaps as a parting gift. Ranging in a variety of holiday scents such as Peppermint Sticks, Frosted Pinecone, and Alpine Snowdift with non-seasonal scents available as well, they can be custom colorized to match your theme. Available at Etsy for $2/baggie containing two soaps and personalized tag.

 

snowglobes-gay-winter-wedding-favors

For those who are DIY divas, create a customized snow globe for each of your guests using glass jars and tiny trinkets. This easy-to-follow how-to from Well Worn is created using a lidded jar of choice, figurines, anti-rust sealant, clear-drying epoxy, distilled water, dash of glycerin and glitter.

Steps:

  1. Use clear-drying epoxy to adhere your piece to the inside of the lid. Let dry per  instructions.
  2. After the epoxy dries completely, fill your jar with distilled or boiled water (at room temperature, of course).
  3. Add just a dash of glycerin so the "snow" falls slowly.
  4. Add as much glitter as you like. If you don't like the look of glitter, you can usually find faux snow at craft stores.
  5. Screw your lid on tightly and enjoy your snow globe!
