Destination brides, what are you giving as your favors? I wanted to do can koozies, but I realized the beer at the resort is in bottles, so this may not be the greatest idea. I want something relatively affordable and small/light enough to fit in our suit cases. Ideas are much appreciated!

In lieu of favors, we just made welcome bags. We filled the bags with all kinds of things: snacks, pens, puzzle books, advil, hand sanitizer, playing cards, etc.

We went to a Destination Wedding and they gave away cookies that are popular in the area. She paid the resort to do them though as she didn’t want to fly with pounds of cookies.

@lilbluebird: I like this idea…
Britt_RN where are you going?? what about something local.. ie: coffee, or a shell, or something hand made by a local? It all kind of depends on where you go. I like the coozie idea. Another idea to get it there, it might be cheaper to SHIP it to your destination a month before just because it is SO expensive to fly and to bring an extra suitcase or weight.

We are having a beach destination. I am thinking about doing the gift bag as well. I am planning on using personalized chapstick, sunscreen, hand fans, hand sanitizer and if I think of anything else along the way. I love chapstick so that is my first goodie to start.

OP, they have bottle koozies too if you still like your original idea!

We did fans for the ceremony
Stubbie coolers (can and bottle holders) to give to guests at our pre wedding get together.
We designed them has the destination, date etc and a personal saying. They came in a flat box so we just put them in our suitcase that way with the fans.

Our wedding is in Hawaii and we’re doing bite-sized gourmet mac nut/shortbread cookies. 2 for each guest in a small box or organza bag. They are from Hawaii so I’m just going to get them when I get there.
