      Hello dclodge, 


      sometimes it really depends on where you are getting married, As a wedding planner in the Riviera Maya we have seen some fun and inexpensive favors.


      Maracas are super fun , you can put a little tag with "shake for a kiss" 

      mini tequila bottles with a thank you note

      tequila shot glass to take shots the entire night


      and the lists goes on.


      If you need a list of fun and inexpensive favors please feel free to reach out and  we will be happy to help.


      Happy Planning!

      Similar to OOT bags... the insight from previous brides is valuable! Can't wait for more ideas!

      I think it depends where you are getting married. I am getting married in Nicaragua and I had these maracas made for guest favors, but also to use as escort cards.

      I'm ordering rain stick shakers for my guests-


      I was originally going to add them to the welcome bag and have it put in the rooms for them before they arrive.. However, I don't think it would be a great idea to give my guests a tool to summons rain right before my wedding...

        The little gifts are a great idea and the guests LOVE them!


        We have seen personalized sandals, maracas, little tequilas, and even little bags of homemade candy, even the BAG was homemade!!


        I think with destination weddings and guests traveling it is always a nice gesture and just one of the small details that go along with a wedding of this style. 


        If anyone would like a few ideas that our brides have used in the past we are always available to chat. :)

        We got mood color changing stadium cups personalized to our names & in our wedding colors.  It'll be handy for guests on the resort, since we're going to an AI, which tend to have small drink glasses!


        I found them on Etsy and Ebay (same seller, same price lol).  I ordered via Etsy because I could convo them that way, versus email :)  

        Here is a link to the cups:
