10 Favors For A Rustic Wedding

Rustic Wedding Favors

Planning the favors for your wedding can be a very fun and creative task. After blogging about thousands of real rustic weddings I feel like I have seen every type of rustic wedding favor out there. From personalized items to casual homemade cookies, I have seen it all. To help all you rustic brides find some great wedding favor ideas I thought it would help if I put together a list of my top 10 favorites!


1. Jam

Giving jam as your wedding favor is perfect when planning a farm style wedding. If you are tying the knot at a fall rustic wedding than you might want to think about giving your guests pumpkin jam or even apple butter to celebrate the season! If you are planning more of a rustic summer wedding you might want to think about sending guests home with raspberry jam or my personal favorite, strawberry butter. Looking to go one step further… match up your jelly wedding favors with a mix for biscuits or scones. One of our favorite jam favor vendors, Miss Shelley’s Southern Jams & Jellies can be found on the Rustic Wedding Guide.


2. Pinecone Fire Starter

The perfect DIY wedding favor might just be this homemade pinecone fire starter. Easy to make and fun to package this favor is perfect for a winter wedding and especially a rustic winter wedding. See how to make your own pinecone fire starters with our DIY tutorial.
