When you choose a Mexican theme for your wedding, you’ve definitely chosen fun! So aside from fabulously colorful decorations and flavorful food, your wedding favors should have that distinct Mexican spirit, too. Here, then, is a roundup of some really creative, colorful, and ‘spicy’ favor ideas that you can order online (or buy off the shelf) and then personalize. Or you can DIY from scratch yourselves!
Favor Ideas for a Mexican-themed Wedding: Creative, Colorful, Spicy!
Just for Fun
There are so many elements of Mexican culture that would make great wedding keepsakes. Think authentic wooden maracas (5) on each place setting or playful DIY ‘dancing girl’ piñatas (1) that you could fill with confetti or candy.
Other options would be colorful abanicos de palma or palm leaf fans (3) perfect for an outdoor summer wedding, or loteria card matchboxes (4) jazzed up with glitter!
Scrumptious and Spicy
Mexican cuisine offers up yummy edible favor ideas! Consider bags of crunchy churros (6) that could be part of a fabulous churro bar*, or chocolate bar wrappers (8) customized with Mexican designs.
Or to send guests off with some of that ‘Mexican kick’ to enjoy at home, give bottles of your favorite hot chili sauce (7) or mini bottles of Partida tequila (4)!
