Gone are the days of handing out Jordan Almonds and dinner mints as wedding favors, but are you having trouble thinking of an alternative? Let the great city of New Orleans inspire you to create wedding favors your guests will truly enjoy. Here are a few favor ideas that will allow them to take home a piece of New Orleans.

Tile Coasters

Not only can guests use these favors for their intended purpose, but they can also serve as a decorative memento in their homes. Personalize the tiles with photos of all that New Orleans has to offer such as iconic landmarks, popular restaurants and bars, historic buildings, or food. The possibilities are endless!


We know food down here in the South, so send your guests home with local treats that will tantalize their taste buds! Stock them up with New Orleans goodies such as Café Du Monde beignets or beignet mix, Hubig’s pies, pralines, mini Tabasco bottles, or Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane mix.

Wine Stoppers

If you’re looking for favors that are more on the elegant side, New Orleans themed wine stoppers are a great option. Stoppers in the shape of a fleur de lis, a Mardi Gras crown, or our iconic water meter will give the wine bottles that adorn them that N’awlins flair.

Customized Hand-Painted Maps

This idea makes for a truly unique wedding favor because it’s customizable. If you’re having a destination wedding in New Orleans, you can create a map that includes all of the places you and your guests will be attending. Everyone will have a beautiful piece of artwork that reminds them of their time spent in the city for your special day!
