    Ann Arbor Wedding Favor Ideas

    Your wedding should reflect everything about you and your spouse-to-be — your relationship, your style, and your future together. While there are tons of ways to personalize your wedding day, we think customized, thoughtful wedding favors are one creative way to do just that.

    A locally inspired Ann Arbor favor is perfect for couples who met in the town (maybe in college?), love the city’s style, or plan to settle down here in the future. To get you started, here are few of our favorite Ann Arbor wedding favor ideas:

    Go Big Blue

    If you live in Ann Arbor, chances are you’re a Wolverine! Show your school pride with blue and gold favors, whether they’re colorful cake pops or bold buttons. For football fanatics, you could even make your favors pigskin-themed — think mini footballs or pennants.

    Locally Made Sweets

    When it comes to favors, you can’t go wrong with a treat to please your guests’ sweet tooth! Luckily, there are plenty of local candy shops where you can pick up a few sweets to give to your loved ones. Try Sweet Gem Confections for delectable truffles, Kilwins for rich fudge, and Bell Stone Toffee for toffee and caramel.

    Ann Arbor Beverages

    Sweets aren’t your only edible favor option. Drinks, from coffee to beer, make great take-home gifts, too — and they’re even better when they come from local artisans. Offer up a bottle from an Ann Arbor craft brewery, like Arbor Brewing Company or Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales. Alternatively, send guests home with bags of tea from Teahaus or coffee from Roos Roast Coffee.

    Michigan Packaging

    If you choose a small or more simple wedding favor, consider adding a hint of Michigan flair with your packaging. A small bag or box adorned with the state’s silhouette is an easy option that makes a bold statement about just how much you love Michigan!
