When trying to decide on the perfect wedding favor for your Maui wedding, it’s a good idea to keep it personal and something that perhaps your wedding guests would like to keep and/or use over and over, or savor slowly. Keepsakes for your guests is a great way to show your appreciation for their love and friendship in your own unique and creative way.
Through the years we’ve come across many different wedding favor ideas, and so we’ve decided to gather up some of our favorites to show you and perhaps inspire you. We’re excited to show you some creative packaging ideas, useful gifts, food-centric favors, and also some Maui inspired ideas.
We have to say, our wedding couples sure do have great ideas. Hopefully these will help you in your journey in finding the perfect wedding favors for your Maui Wedding.
Good Things Come In Small Packages
The thing that really adds that extra sparkle to a wedding favor is sometimes something so simple as the packaging. Some gifts are presented like works of art, in beautiful fancy boxes, or in cute little burlap bags — all with the intention of sharing your love and your thanks. One of our favorites is the ti leaf wrapped wedding favor. Such a fresh and creative way to wrap a present, that it is almost a shame to have to unwrap it. It almost doesn’t matter what’s inside. Well… almost.
Useful Wedding Favors With Plenty of Appeal
Useful wedding favors, such as bottle openers or keychains, are a great idea, especially when your personality shines through. The useful wedding favor ideas you will find below are all favors we think are fabulous! Imagine your wedding guests incorporating your wedding favors into their daily lives. Although something useful seems a bit less sexy than, say… a cookie, in the end, it’s kind of neat to think your friends and family have a special keepsake that they can use every day.
Wedding Favors That Say Thank You In Delicious Ways
Honestly, we love delicious treats – especially when they are packaged up in amazing ways. Wedding favors of the foodies and for the foodies, who can resist a little bottle of your absolutely favorite olive oil, says the bride who loves to cook. Or how about some of Grandma’s special jam that everyone loves so much? Food-centric wedding favors done with originality and that is a reflection of who you are and what you want to share makes these wedding favors too delectable to resist.
Maui Inspired Wedding Favors
Many of our wedding couples decide on a wedding favor that is inspired by the romance and beauty of Maui; a keepsake that captures the magic and aloha of the Hawaiian islands. We have dug out some incredible Maui inspired wedding favors from our archives and are excited to show you the incredible originality of our couples. Hopefully something here will spark an idea for your own Maui Wedding.
Message In A Bottle
There is something so romantic about the ‘Message In A Bottle’; the idea of writing a note on a scrap of paper, putting it into a bottle and sealing it. Then, with a good strong heave, thrusting it far into the ocean for someone special to find. It inspired an awesome song by The Police and even a 1999 American romantic drama film directed by Luis Mandoki and based on Nicholas Sparks’ 1998 novel of the same name. Anyways, we love the creativity in the ‘Message In A Bottle’ wedding favor idea, especially for a Maui wedding. We love that the cork opens up and the paper can be taken out and read. Very nice personal touch.
We had a couple that had a brilliant way to incorporate their personality into the wedding favors, and that was through their love of tattoos. Oh no… they didn’t have tattoo artists at their wedding ready to start inking a fresh arm. Instead, they had an assortment of Maui inspired temporary tattoos for wedding guests to choose from. They could apply them at home or the next day at the beach. What a great way for guests to express their new Maui-tude.
What a whirlwind of wonderful wedding favor ideas we’ve gathered together for you. Big mahalo to our Maui wedding photographers for capturing these creative keepsakes. Another huge mahalo to our brides and grooms that have so much creativity. We believe favors can be a great way for you to say thank you, and for your family and friends to remember your beautiful Maui wedding.
