Creative Beach Wedding Favors

If you’re having a beach theme wedding, finding beach wedding favors that aren’t dull and boring can sometimes be a challenge. While traditional wedding favors such as cheese spreaders and bottle toppers are a classic way to thank your guests for being with you on your special day, coming up with new beach wedding favor ideas can be a fun and creative way to let your guests know that you care.

Flip Flops

An easy and fun beach wedding favor to give your guests is a pair of flip flops! They’re actually fairly inexpensive and come in a variety of sizes and colors. You don’t have to be exact on the size – just grab a wide range of both men’s and women’s sizes and everyone should be able to find something that fits
Tie each set to a guest’s chair or throw them in a big basket at the entrance to your reception for guests to pick up.

Beach Favor Boxes

An inexpensive and fun way to create beach wedding favors is to find bulk beach favor boxes or bags and fill them with whatever you want! Fill them with flower seeds, birdseed, chocolates, Jordan almonds, scented soaps, bath salts or anything else you can come up with! Tie the finished product with a color coordinated ribbon and you’ve got a creative beach wedding favor that was easy and simple to make and just as thoughtful!

Drink Mixes

A beach wedding is practically synonymous with chilled mojitos and cool pina coladas. What’s more refreshing at a hot beach reception than an ice cold cocktail? Let your guests take home the magic of cocktails on the beach with a personalized packet of mojito or other cocktail mix. When your guests get home, they simply follow the mixing directions and in just a few minutes they’ll have a drink as delicious as they did at your reception!


Everyone needs sunscreen at a beach wedding, but many people forget to bring it! Don’t let your guests get burned at your ceremony or reception. You don’t have to make everyone share from the big bottle of discount sunscreen you got at the supermarket though – turn this opportunity to give your guests unique and useful beach wedding favors! Many online warehouses and wedding favor boutiques offer small bottles of sunscreen that you can have personalized with your names and wedding date!

Pass these out at the beginning of the ceremony to keep your guests from getting crisp! Use your beach wedding favors as an opportunity to let your creativity shine. Find something unconventional that is beach related and get a ton of them to give your friends and family at the wedding! No matter what it is, as long as it’s thoughtful and something that came from the heart, your guests will love them. You don’t have to stick with the expensive and traditional to let your guests know that you appreciate their presence on your big day.
