You might be wondering a few things in particular as you plan your big day:
Like what’s with wedding favors, and do guests still expect a little swag bag of souvenirs or goodies from the bride and groom?
Today we’re talking about these curious wedding favors, and if you’re thinking about handing them out, we have fun, budget-friendly ideas that your guests will love.
And we’re not talking about your typical wedding favors, either…because we’re going for the gold wedding favors today, baby, and there’s great stuff here!
Let Love Grow Wedding Favor Has a Golden Message
This idea is the coolest, most eco-friendly thing we’ve heard about for ages!
Each 15-count set contains personalized packets laser printed on both sides. The pretty design displays eucalyptus-type greenery and golden accents like “let love grow” on the front and a sweet little golden heart doodle on the back.
The presentation is terrific, but it is what’s inside that counts. Each packet contains about a quarter teaspoon of wildflower seeds and planting instructions, a special memento of your day that your guests can cherish as those planted seeds bloom.
Alternatively, you can let the love grow by emptying the packets and placing something fun like a lottery ticket or a gift certificate. It’s super-thoughtful, and your guests will adore it.
Wedding Favors in a Mini Golden Bucket
These little mini-pails pack a lot of punch! Each set contains 12 mini-pails made of durable plastic.
Of course, you can fill these with mint candies or pineapple-flavored lifesavers, but they’re also good to hold little shot bottles for your adult guests and bubbles for the kids (more on that in a bit!).
Around the Globe With Your Gold Wedding Favors
This favor will be a standout on your reception tables!
Each set contains 12 little globes made of durable plastic with a golden metallic base, a perfect container to hold handfuls of M&Ms, mints, or perhaps personalized chocolates from you!
Personalized Chocolate Wedding Favors in Golden Foil
These adorable little milk chocolates get a fancy outfit on your wedding day!
Each sweet treat gets wrapped in a golden foil with small decorative flowers in different colors you can choose.
Your names and wedding details are on the front, and you can request a message on the back if you wish.
Laser -Favor Boxes With Golden Light
Anyone who’s a Cricut fan or appreciates laser-cut decorations will love these little paper wedding favor boxes with a gold pearlescent finish and an intricate heart and floral pattern.
This 100-count set comes unassembled with ribbons to attach, but they’re not too hard or time-consuming to open and fold.
Create a Golden Glow With Wedding Favor Sparkler Tags
These gold wedding favors will be a massive hit as the evening descends during your wedding reception! Don’t get us wrong, this party favor itself isn’t gold, but the idea is still golden!
These are sets of recycled and personalized tags in a kraft paper brown or antique white color, and each piece has a striking strip attached.
These cool little tags hold sparklers for your guests, and the striking strips come in handy to light matches and, in turn, get the golden glow of sparklers dancing like fireflies in the night.
Just ensure there is a fire-safe area for everyone to participate, and think of how fantastic the pictures and videos will look!
Clear Wedding Favor Boxes With Gold Lining
Here’s a larger gift box with gold trim that measures 3×3 inches and about an inch and a half high.
We like the clear plastic and vinyl to display wedding favors for your guests, and some customization is available if you’d like to add a message across the top.
Golden Chair Wedding Favor Box Is Fun
We fell hard for these tiny gold chair favors!
Each little handmade box has a golden chairback with a heart charm and ribbon. Fill each box with hard candies, mints, or gums.
We also like how you can add name markers to each box to add some personality to your reception tables.
Golden Pomegranate Box for Wedding Favors
This exotic-looking party favor box looks deceptively weighty, but it’s made of a lightweight plastic. There are different colors and sizes, including straight gold, antique gold, or rose gold (we love rose gold!).
If you choose a larger size, you could hold a hand-dipped truffle in each box as a delightful surprise for your guests. However, the smaller boxes are perfect for loose candies, and we think this little box is a keepsake because of its unique beauty and durability.
Wedding Guests Love Gold Wedding Bubble Favors
Here’s another fun wedding guest activity that brings out the kid in everyone, kind of like sparklers, but bubbles instead!
This wedding favor comes in two parts: the first is transparent stickers printed with your personalized wedding message in a quality golden foil.
Each set contains 48 printed stickers, and you can get the order quantity adjusted to meet your guest list.
Here’s the info on the bubble part…
Wedding Bubble Tubes for Your Party Favors
These wedding bubble tubes come in sets of 30 or 100, so you can choose your perfect amount.
You’ll receive instructions from the seller on assembling the above-noted stickers on these tubes, so round up your wedding party and have some fun with this!
The Gold Standard in Coffee Favor Bags for Guests
Coffee-loving newlyweds gather around for this!
Just think of how your guests will rave about receiving specialty roasted coffee as a party favor on your wedding day. We’ve got info on a great coffee vendor below, but in the meantime, check out these glossy stand-up pouches you can use as your gold wedding favors.
These wrappers are food-safe, FDA-compliant, and lined in protective foil with an easy-open tear notch and a resealable zipper.
As for the label, that’s a cinch, too—you can have fun designing your custom label with pictures and a message to put on these pouches.
Let’s check out some cool coffee ideas next!
Cool Coffee Flavors for Your Gold Favor Bags
Leave it to first-generation lavender farmers to come up with this heavenly idea!
They use pure green Arabica coffee beans roasted in small batches with genuine lavender buds and other natural flavors to create unique blends. As a result, you and your wedding guests will taste and smell one-of-a-kind medium roast coffee with a smooth flavor and an addictive aroma.
The blends include straight lavender coffee, lavender and vanilla, lavender honey, and a lavender coconut coffee blend with a floral twist.
Keep Your Glow Golden With Sunscreen Wedding Favors
Here’s a perfect idea for destination or beach weddings: a personalized bottle of SPF 30 sunscreen with a gold (or rose gold) foil label that’s easy to assemble.
We love that the little bottles are refillable for travel with convenient carabiner clips to attach to luggage or a sports duffel bag.
Wedding Wraparound Label for Tic Tacs With Gold Image
This laser-printed, personalized label has a glitter gold image that’s easy to apply and looks great over the original label on a Tic Tac container.
The label is printed for you on both sides and can include a wedding hashtag if you wish.

Pretty Pink and Gold Matchbox Wedding Favor
We like the classic look of a matchbox instead of a flimsier matchbook that’s sometimes more awkward to light.
The ballet pink color of this item looks elegant and sophisticated, with your names personalized in a golden font with a subtle sheen.
There are color choices here, though, with a dramatic dark navy blue or a bright white also available for the matchbox color, and perhaps a monogram, wedding hashtag, or your wedding date if you choose.

Pineapple Lifesavers are delicious, and they remind everyone of a sunny, tropical day.

We get nostalgic thinking about that classic playdough smell from when we were kids, but this goldenrod-colored playdough takes it up a notch.
This wedding favor-quality playdough is custom-made with coconut oil for softness and antibacterial properties. Plus, it’s scented with natural, dreamy-smelling lavender!
We’d definitely take a stress relief break and have fun with this playdough!
