It doesn’t take much to tickle your funny bone. You quote lines from “Seinfeld” and “The Office” flawlessly because you’ve binged episodes more times than you want to admit. Conversely, maybe your sense of humor flies under the radar as you chuckle at TikToks and relatable memes before bed. No matter what makes you laugh, our list of funny wedding favors is guaranteed to make your guests giggle.
Sometimes, the actual wedding gifts and favors don’t have to garner a laugh. However, coupling a beautiful thank you wedding gift with a humorous tag can make your guests snicker. Some of these favors are corny, others are cute, but they’re all punny, IOHO!
Generally, you should be giving your guests personalized gifts and favors with your names or wedding date. However, when it comes to being creative and humorous, opt for custom cookies for your wedding day gift. You could have them made with a funny saying, although our favorite choice is to have them feature your faces. Not only is this adorable, but your guests will get a laugh out of eating your hair or eyes.
Some funny wedding favors don’t have to be waiting at each place setting. And we adore this idea because it doubles as wedding reception entertainment. Hire a caricature artist to draw pictures of guests. Guests can have their portraits sketched at their leisure during the reception, and the results are almost always hilarious.
If Coronavirus impacted your special day, make light of a difficult situation. Various funny COVID-19 wedding favors, such as soap bars that say “spread love not germs,” can be amusing. Another option is a locally made candle with a custom label that says “smells like our postponed wedding.” A saying accompanying your favors, such as “it’s about time,” would get a chuckle. Get creative when incorporating fun favor ideas that give a nod to the struggles leading up to your big day.
Ok, if you chuckled when you read “hard pass” above, we’re talking to you. You may think that—forgive us—nudie glasses and penis-shaped lollipops are hilarious, but we doubt that your grandparents will think so. We’re blushing just thinking about it. Save anything that focuses on the sexual aspect for the bachelor or bachelorette parties, if you must.
When in doubt, don’t. In addition to the aforementioned inappropriate items, stay away from anything that could potentially offend any wedding guest. We’re all being educated about issues that have to do with gender and culture. Therefore shy away from things thought of as distasteful along those lines. Also, consider the values of your guests. For example, if you have a family with a history of alcoholism, skip the boozy wedding favors. No matter how funny the accompanying saying would be, it’s best to choose something else.
The best wedding favors let your guests know how much you appreciate their attendance, while evoking a smile. Maybe you are the Chandler in your group of “Friends,” or possibly you just love to laugh. No matter what, giving thoughtful thank you gifts is something your wedding guests will certainly remember.
