The Do's and Don'ts of Wedding Favors

Finding the perfect wedding party favors for your guests can be a daunting task and may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of your preparations, but it doesn’t have to be.

Your wedding day is approaching, and you’ll be surrounded by your friends and family that are excited to celebrate your special day with you. A way in which you can express gratitude to the guests is through thoughtful and memorable wedding party favors. Wedding favors are typically small tokens of appreciation gifted to your guests by you and your soon-to-be spouse. What may seem like a simple thank you to your guests can actually be an opportunity for you and your future spouse to give a personal touch to their wedding that’s memorable. If you’re planning to give away wedding party favors to enhance your guests’ experience, here are some do’s and don'ts to follow to make sure getting hitched goes off without a hitch.


You want to make sure that you choose wedding party favors that express both of your personalities but ones that have a long-lasting impression on your guests as well. These favors may express a part of your lives as a couple, your unique heritage, or something you and your guests may have in common. Suppose you both have zany and wild personalities. In that case, choosing from our wide array of unique Opopop Popcorn flavors like Chedapeno, Salted Umami, Maui Heat, or Vanilla Cake Pop is a great way to show your uniqueness in a fun and delicious way.


While it goes without saying that your guests will appreciate edible wedding party favors, as they can readily consume them while at your wedding and don’t have to wait until they get home to enjoy them, making your own edible favors is a headache you don’t need on top of making preparations for your big day. Making your own favors will cost you extra time and effort that you could have preserved for the more crucial elements of your wedding day. Another factor you’ll need to consider is the freshness of your edible favors.

Typically, you’ll want to package edible favors the day prior or the day of your wedding, and surely you won’t have the time to attend to this while you’re busy attending to the more important elements of your special day. The best alternative is to outsource your edible party favors, so you can reserve your efforts for looking your best and being well-rested for your wedding day.

Opopop popcorn is perfect as it’s simple, stores well, and tastes great. Most of us associate popcorn with sporting events, movie nights, and other grand-scale events—so how is your wedding day any different? Make your wedding party favors an event without the hassle of thinking too much about it.


It’s important to try out whatever snacks you’ll be using as your potential wedding favor. If you decide on edible favors, order various samples of different flavors to ensure that not only your guests will enjoy it, but that you yourself enjoy them as well. If you choose favors other than food, make sure you have a sample of the product. Order your favors one month before your wedding date to allow yourself time to assemble, if necessary.


The purpose of wedding favors is essentially to say thank you to your guests and therefore it shouldn’t be a stressful task. I’m sure you’re not told this enough, so remember to enjoy yourself and follow these simple do’s and dont's—your guests will appreciate the effort and acknowledgment. Undoubtedly, they’re guaranteed to love the taste of Opopop popcorn.
