Wedding Favor Basics
Handing wedding guests a wedding favor has almost become a tradition, although nobody really expects to receive anything when going to a wedding, most people will confess to being very happy with a little something to remember the weeding by, a wedding favor.
Not everyone can afford to produce a big flashy wedding and add to that an expensive wedding favor, everyone knows that the cost of a wedding alone (without the added events) can become a very heavy toll on the young couple, a wedding favor does not need to be a very expensive or a rare thing to be appreciated by all. Many people will tell you that receiving a wedding favor is, by itself, a nice gesture and that they would greatly appreciate anything, since it indicates that the bride and groom have thought of their guests.
But what would make a nice, inexpensive wedding favor? What can you think of that will surprise you guests and give them a sense that you truly thought of them and wanted to give them a little something as a token of your appreciation of them coming to your wedding and their wedding gift to you?. Almost anything can be turned into a wedding favor, from chocolates to jewelry, anything can become your wedding favor.
A wedding favor is not limited to one thing, it doesn’t even have to bare the sign of your wedding, although having some soft of indication of the event is always a good idea there is not much point in printing this on a pack of chocolates or even on a specialist coffee.
Many things that you can buy in wholesale will serve you as a wedding favor, your creativity and hard work will do the rest. Think of something that is unique, it can be the date of you wedding, the season or anything both of you – or even one of you – is known to like, or to do, and try to think of things that associate with that passion of yours. Some people like to bring up the way they met on their wedding favor, if you both like tennis, why not go that way, if you cant find something like that, don’t worry – there are still a lot of ideas out there.
Here are a few ideas you can use right away, they are not pricy, and you can make them in a reasonable timing, it wouldn’t take all your energy and it will be a great wedding favor for your wedding guests. Fortune Cookies are always a nice thing, print out a lot of the usual fortune cookie sayings, and you got something to put on every table, try and make the fortunes relate to your wedding, or even to current events, this way everyone will know that this was specially made for the wedding. Deck of Cards is a fun, creative idea, with many possibilities of attaching it to the wedding by printing, writing or sticking things on the cards. A word to the wise, better hand these out as late as possible or you may end up with a few drunk tables forgetting about the wedding and starting poker playing.
Gourmet Coffee Packs are also a great wedding favor, assign different coffee flavors to different tables so guests can trade-off. Place the coffee in tulle and tie a beautiful ribbon (which matches your bridal party’s colors) around the favor. This wedding favor will be well-received by the adults!
