Delightful EdiblesIs chocolate the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about wedding favors? If the answer is yes, that's because personalized chocolates are quickly becoming the most popular wedding favor trend. Go with the spirit of Oregon and the state's eleven coastal lighthouses by ordering some chocolate lighthouses for your guests to enjoy. If truffles are your treat, then look into the long list of truffle companies in your local Oregon area, including Portland's Pix Patisserie or Ashland's organic Dagoba Chocolate company. For those steering away from chocolate who still want something sweet on their guests' napkins, consider Oregon-made candies that include local flavors like huckleberry taffy or hazelnut brittle. Just a step below sugary you'l find a variety of mixes of Oregon fruits and nuts to choose from and mix and match to your guests' liking. For a real treat to keep your guests licking their fingers, complement your favorite Oregon wine with salami and gourmet cheeses, or indulge the senses with notoriously-wonderful Oregon smoked salmon fillets, prepackaged and ready for a ribbon and a note.
Seeds, Flowers, and Jewelry FavorsMany couples have had the pleasure of giving away seed packets to their guests as a "growing" tribute to the couple's marriage because both the couple and the guests can witness the plant's growth for years to come. Consider giving Oregon wildflower seed packets away as part of your wedding favors and put them in small terracotta pots with beans or stones inside and wrap it with a colored bow or a personalized tag. There are even seed cards made up in different themes, such as seed cards for a beach wedding with shells attached to crinkled card stock. Oregon is also home to a great many natural herbs and spices that would make aromatic herb bags, such as raw lavender wrapped up in lace packets (similar to rice bundles) or rosemary and rose-petal potpourri bags. The women at your wedding would be absolutely delighted to receive Oregon-originated jasper or agate jewelry, or anything made of Oregon's state gem, the sunstone. For a truly Oregonian treat, consider gifting to your guests products made of Oregon coastal myrtlewood from Oregon companies whose products include jewelry, hand and purse mirrors, and intricate puzzle boxes made from burls.
Oregon Soy Candles and Specialty SoapsEspecially if your wedding guests are traveling to Oregon to attend your wedding, you'll want to send them home with a wedding favor that shows the ingenuity and values of the state. For eco-minded favors, try Oregon-molded soy wax candles and tins or Oregon-created soaps that can even match your flower arrangements, such as calla lily soap bundles. Still stuck for ideas? Browse your local wedding favor shops, including companies with themed wedding favors.
Most any wedding favor can be personalized by simply adding a personalized ribbon or name tag. Your Oregon wedding will be remembered for a lifetime with one of many Oregon-made keepsakes your guests will be thrilled to receive.
