An olive orchard can be a beautiful and symbolic setting for your marriage ceremony and reception. However, don’t forget to send your guests home with a fitting favor afterward. You may think you’re stuck with olive oil or oil bottles, but think again! There are so many different olive-themed options your guests will love.
From olive oil soap to oil dipping dishes to olive serving plates, we have an array of olive-themed favors your guests will use over and over. Our olive and appetizer plate is a simple classic that will fit in with any decor or taste. The grape olive oil and balsamic vinegar dipping plate is equally charming and useful no matter what type of guests you’re inviting. You’re sure to see these favors used in your friends’ homes well after the wedding has passed.
Rosemary salt is a delicious and easy DIY wedding favor, especially for a vineyard, rustic or garden wedding. Your guests will appreciate this versatile herb blend which is a perfect match for lamb, chicken or potatoes. For an added homemade touch, use rosemary grown in your own garden.
Start with attractive glass favor containers, like the adorable mini glass bottles pictured below. Combine high quality sea salt with coarsely chopped rosemary leaves (separated from the stem). Spread the mixture in a thin layer on a cookie sheet and bake at 250 degrees for 15 minutes or until the rosemary leaves are dried. Allow the mixture to cool. At this point, you can either blend the mixture in a food processor or keep it in its coarse state. Place in an airtight container until you’re ready to assemble your favors.
Wine-Themed & Rustic Favor Tags
Make these gifts your own with favor tags that coordinate with your wedding stationery. Many of our garden, rustic and wine wedding invitation designs can easily be customized to create your own logo incorporating your wedding information and personalized messages, like the horseshoe-themed favor tags pictured here. Using twine to attach the tags adds to the rustic feel of these pretty and practical favors.

Play with vineyard imagery, like vines, grapes, corks and barrels to create a gorgeous wedding design. Include wine-related decor and favors that your guests will love taking home as a way to continue the celebration. Use the suggestions below to make your dream vineyard wedding a reality:
The stainless steel grape design pictured here has a surprisingly substantial feel. Cork-themed bottle openers, frames and utensils – like a cheese-spreader – are charming and useful. Wine-themed place card holders do double-duty as favors and take-home photo holders.
DIY Wedding Favors
Another way to create memorable favors is to go the Do-It-Yourself route. DIY favors like cookies & candies can be placed in treat bags or box containers. Personalize containers and other DIY favors – like herbs in a mini pitcher (pictured) – with custom labels and favor tags in a vineyard or rustic design. Stencils and stamps can also be used to add a wine theme to DIY favors.
Personalized Wine Bottles
The opportunity to create personalized wine bottles is reason enough to have a vineyard wedding! They make ideal favors, table decor – or both. Create custom wine labels printed with a thank you message, a meaningful poem, the reception menu – anything you like! Coordinate the stationery design with your other paper goods for a unified look.
Wine-Themed Table Numbers
Adorned with cascading greenery and fruit, wine bottle table numbers look classic and elegant.
Burlap wine bags with table numbers in stylish lettering bring a rustic feel to your tablescape. Vine-decorated stationery looks sophisticated in sign holders shaped like corks, barrels or tree trunks. Make a statement with a dramatic wine bottle candelabra that will add both charm and a warm glow to your tables.
Guest Book Alternatives
Inventive guest book ideas abound!
A wine-themed or rustic guest book is one way to go. A decorative wooden box where guests slip well-wishing messages inside is another good choice. Find specific wine-themed guest book alternatives such as a “message in a bottle” kit or signature posters with vineyard designs. Wine cork cages make truly unique guest book alternatives. Just have your guests sign corks and place them inside!
These are just a few of the many options you have to use favors and decoration to make your vineyard wedding your own. Feel free to suggest others in the comments below.
Looking to add a little homemade charm to your rustic or vineyard wedding? Loose tea is an easy DIY wedding favor idea that looks festive, pretty and impressive. Use glass jars and bottles or other wedding favor containers and personalize them with customized labels and favor tags. We used a Dark Rose Tea recipe from Straight from the Farm. This DIY favor idea would also work well for a garden wedding or bridal shower.
Maybe it’s just February and all the romantic Valentine’s Day images, but we are going wild for heart-themed burlap, wood and cork wine favors for a rustic or vineyard wedding. Wine-themed centerpieces like the one below made to look like stacked logs are perfect for a barn or winery wedding reception. It’s easy to spread the love around with heart-shaped place card holders that double as photo frames and favor containers like the heart-stamped burlap bags below. Cork coasters in the shape of hearts add just the right amount of rustic charm to your big day!
Inspired by the artisans of Murano, Italy, our Murano Glass Wine Stopper category offers you a wide range of colors and designs to choose from. Whether you are looking for a grape design stopper, a starfish design stopper or a teardrop design wine stopper, you can find the perfect item on our website for bottle stoppers. We recently added over ten new glass wine stopper favors. A few of these are featured below.
Murano Design Glass Twist Multi Color Bottle Stopper Favor
We recently added two unique items to our wine theme favors that make great gifts for vineyard weddings. The first is the Wine Bottle Coaster Favor packaged in a beautiful vineyard theme box. The second favor is a Wine Aerator & Pourer Favor individually packaged and ready for gift giving. If you plan to give a bottle of wine as a favor to your guests, both of these favors will complement a wine gift perfectly. Please view our Wine Themed Favors for more vineyard and winery wedding favor ideas.
If you are planning a winery wedding, share some of the locally made wine with your guests and send them home with a unique favor! Pictured above is a small bottle of wine with our Monterey Memories Custom Labels. These labels measure 2 inches round and can be personalized to include a brief message, the names of a couple or a brief description of the wine. We also offer mini wine bottle labels which are slightly larger at 2 x 2.675 inches.
One of our favorite wine stopper favors is manufactured by Kate Aspen and features a dark purple grape cluster. The Grape Vineyard Theme Bottle Stopper Favor ships packaged in a beautiful favor box with a matching ribbon. However, we wanted to present another option for presenting these bottle stopper favors to your guests.
We took the bottle stopper out of the packaging and added our Vineyard Favor Tags to the bottle stopper by wrapping bakers twine around the stopper and connecting the tag. We then placed the stopper in the place setting and used similar grape colors for the table cloth and accents.
Our Grapevine magnets are sold individually but we have several ideas for presenting these as favors for a wine party or a wine theme bridal shower. First, you can personalize these grape magnets by individually packaging each in organza favor bag. Pictured below, are 3 x 4 inch gold organza favor bags. Add a personalized thank you note by selecting from one of wine themed favor tags.
These magnets can also be presented in a rustic basket or decorative container with a sign that reads “Please take one.” We offer the sign pictured below on our website which can be displayed using one of our cork place card holders. Measuring 2 inches by 2.25 inches, these magnets feature a grape cluster with a bronze patina finish. The brown and bronze textures add a beautiful vintage and rustic feel to these magnets. A wide selection of wine themed favors is available on our site.
