DIY Wedding Favors

This Friday on My Craft Table homemade wedding favors:

Wedding favors are small gifts given as a gesture of appreciation or gratitude to guests from the bride and groom during a wedding ceremony or a wedding reception. The tradition of distributing wedding favors is a very old one.

While giving guests wedding favors is a nice way to thank them for joining you for the celebration, they’re not required.
