Your ceremony went off without a hitch and your reception was a major hit. Now it's time to say farewell to the friends and family who made your big day special. For the ultimate ending to the perfect day, send them off with something to remember the festivities by.

The best rule of thumb? Skip the monogrammed picture frames and opt for favors your guests will actually use. Bottles of hot sauce or glass canisters of sea salt are sure to end up in your loved one's kitchens, serving as a happy reminder of your wedding day. You can also gift a favor that was inspired by your wedding's locale. This is especially perfect if you're throwing a destination wedding—think mini jars of olive oil for a celebration in Santorini or fresh oranges for your Florida nuptials.

No matter how you show your appreciation for your guests, these wedding favor ideas are sure to spark some inspiration. From edible treats to personalized gifts, there's something here for every couple.
