The best DIY dream wedding favors for a winter wedding would fit the season and be useful as the temperatures drop outside.
Leather Gloves for the Wedding Party
The preferred favor at a winter wedding is a pair of dress leather gloves. These can be found in a variety of colors and sizes and more than likely will be used by the wedding party as they leave the reception.
Winter Favors for Guests
Winter is the time of snow, sleigh rides and Christmas. As a way of saying thank you to your honored guests and being remembered in this joyful time of year, many couples hand out Christmas ornaments. These can be personalized for the occasion so each year your wedding will be remembered by all who attended. For some families, this type of favor is a tradition.
Warm your Guest up with Hot Chocolate
A nice winter wedding favor is a jar of hot chocolate mix each of your guests can take home with them. This makes it possible for your guests to remember your gesture on a cold day after the ceremony is over. A nice added touch is a bag a marshmallow attached with a bow to the jar that will be appreciated by your guests.
DIY Mittens for Guests
In the cold winter season, most people from the north know that mittens keep your hands warmer than gloves. These are easy to make for those that know how to knit. Members of the family can also help in making enough of them so all guests that will be attending the wedding can have a pair.
Keep your Guests Neck Warm with a Scarf
Nothing fights off the chill of a cold breeze like a thick warm scarf around the neck. This is another idea for any family who has members that can knit. These can be made in a variety of colors and lengths so your guest can pick the one that best suits them.
The Thermos to Go
At nearly all winter weddings and receptions, there are warm beverages being served. By serving these beverages in a thermos, your guest can have their drink warmer for an extended period of time. They can also take a hot beverage to go as they depart the reception for their ride home and use it in the following days.
To help keep the body of your guests warm during the reception or on their way home a nice fleece blanket would do the trick. These are lightweight yet warm and cozy and will be used repeatedly in the future whenever the temperature drops. For a nice personalized touch, the initials of the wedding couple can be embroidered in one corner of the blanket.
In the cold winter months, many people wear warm slippers to help keep their feet and toes warm. By keeping the toes warm, the head colds can also be fought off and why this is the perfect wedding favor to show you care about the health of your guests.
These are just a few warm and wonderful ideas for the best DIY dream wedding favors for a winter ceremony. With one or more of these available as favors, your guest will know you care and appreciate them.
