Table Gifts for Wedding Guests

Updated February 21, 2017

It's a nice touch to add a little surprise to each of your wedding guests' tables. Small table gifts--from dual-purpose place-card holders to tasty treats--give wedding guests something to enjoy during the wedding and to take home with them.

Picture Frame/Seating Arrangements

The perfect wedding table gift serves multiple purposes. For example, place-card frames and other holders can be used at the wedding for seating arrangements, and then guests can take them home to hold pictures or other personal items. A fairy-tale wedding could use horse and carriage place-card frames, while a beach wedding could use shell place-card holders. A spring or garden wedding might use daisy place-card holders or pressed flower place-card frames. With so many place-card holder options available, it's easy to find one that fits your theme or needs.

Candy and Desserts

Sweets are always a big hit as table gifts for wedding guests. It gives them something to munch on while they're waiting for the meal to be served or as a small after-dinner dessert while waiting for cake. You can scoop candy conversation hearts, chocolates, red hots and other candies into a favour box or favour bag that matches the colour or theme of your wedding. A beach or nautical-themed wedding may use small glass bottles or a scallop shell wrapped in cellophane or tulle to hold the treasures. A spring wedding might use small favour boxes topped off with a daisy embellishment. There is a wedding favour box, bag or holder to fit almost any need.

Condiments and Beverages

Personalised beverages and condiment-filled holders are often well-received by wedding guests. For an Italian-themed wedding, consider bottles of balsamic vinegar or Parmesan and spice shakers personalised with your names and wedding date. For beach or outdoor weddings, place personalised water bottles at each table to refresh guests. Reusable bottles can be taken home and used for years to come. If you have a fall wedding, give guests maple syrup in a leaf-shaped or regular-shaped bottle.
