Party Favors for Along the Way

The engagement process presents a myriad of opportunities to gather your friends to celebrate your status as soon-to-be Mrs. But before each party comes to a close, you’ll want to give your pals a little memento to immortalize the moment.

Melissa Wayte, owner of Paper Affair Dallas, has shared some ideas for party favors for engagement parties, wedding showers, and bachelorette parties, so scroll for some inspo.

Engagement Parties

Oh Sugar! Custom Cookies

“One party favor idea we love is cookies in a jar with a custom label. [We can] design a label that matches the theme of the event,” Wayte says. “These make the perfect engagement party treat!”

Custom Cups or Koozies

“We always recommend custom cups or koozies for parties. It is the small details that create a big impression,” Wayte says. “These items are not only useful at the event, but serve as a fun take-away souvenir for your guests.”

Bridal Showers

Elegant Tray with Vinyl

“Wow your guests by personalizing their gift with a custom monogram or name,” Wayte says. “We love personalizing small acrylic trays for a simple gift that leaves a big impression.”

Sliding Boxes with Acrylic Name

“For another personalized gift idea, our clear sliding boxes featuring an acrylic cut name make a great option,” Wayte says. “We love that you can make this gift extra special by filling it with a sweet treat or note!”

Bachelorette Parties

“Treat your girls during your bachelorette weekend with a basket full of goodies. These items are the gifts that keep on giving: They can be used on your bachelorette weekend, on your wedding day, and then kept as a treat after the festivities are over,” Wayte says. “Package all the items in a fun tote bag, like a tote from Barrington Gifts. Your hunt for the perfect present is over. Here are some of our top favor ideas.”
