Favorite Favors

| | Leave a Comment

While you’re not exactly expected to present favors at your wedding, doing so can be a nice way to say thank you to all of your guests for attending. Here at the Lesner Inn we’ve seen all types of favors ranging from sweet treats to kind mementos. What you choose to do is entirely up to you, but here are some of our favorite favors from 2015!


  • If you’re familiar with Duck Donuts, then you understand why donuts are at the top of our list. Create a crafty display of all sorts of donuts for your guests to take home and enjoy after the festivities are over. Check out this display from a wedding we hosted last weekend!


Candy Bar

  • Who doesn’t love candy? Whether it’s chocolate, sour gummies, lollipops, or anything else you can think of your guests will love a bag of sweet treats to go! Check out this awesome candy bar from earlier this year!



  • Okay we get it, we LOVE sweets! But how cute is this s’mores display?


Inscribed Cups

  • You can never really have too many cups! Why not give your guests a gift that will remind them of your big night every time they’re sippin on the drink of their choice!



  • I know succulents sound like an odd thing to be trending, but check out Pinterest and see just how many weddings feature succulents in their bouquets, center pieces, and even as favors. Check out this adorable little favor from the other weekend!


When choosing your wedding favors, just remember they don’t have to be some extravagant gift that your guests will keep forever. Keep it simple and just show them how much their presence meant to you!

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
