Indian Wedding Favors
Whether they are delivered with your exceptional invitations and wedding cards, handed out at the Sangeet or your Mehendi ceremony, or regally presented to guests at your reception, Indian party favors can be one of the most fun parts of planning your dream wedding.
Your Indian themed wedding favors should capture the majestic and vibrant colors and patterns that make Indian weddings so glorious. Deep, bold colors, intricate gold designs, fun symbolic motifs . . . you can incorporate so much of the rich Indian aesthetic into everyday objects your guests will love like trinket dishes, jeweled mirrors, candles, mini picture frames, bottle stoppers, coin purses, and key chains.
There are also Indian wedding party favors that can be incorporated into the place settings at your reception to serve a dual role - both as a gift for guests as well as something they can use during dinner or after the reception. These may include items like coasters for their water glasses, engraved wine glasses, magnificant elephant name card holders, or personalized bubbles to blow during you and your groom’s grand exit at the end of the night.
If you want to go the food route instead, consider gifting guests with delicacies like delicious truffles, gourmet nuts, packets of savory Indian spices, personalized mints, or sweet Indian macaroons. And don’t forget the wrapping! Traditional Indian party favors are often presented in gorgeous accented vessels like a personalized box with henna designs, a patterned potli bag, or a colorful Indian sari pouch.
Making a statement with your guests doesn’t need to break the bank either. There are lots of ways to save money and still give your guests a memorable and useful token of your thanks that they will cherish. Consider ordering your favors in bulk, recruit friends to help you assemble or label the gifts, or opt for creative DIY options that you can make yourself with inexpensive materials.
