How to Determine What Wedding Favors Are Right for Your Wedding
What wedding favors you determine are right for your wedding is a matter of your own personal taste. The wedding favors you give your guests are your decision. However, there are some things you should consider before making your final choice.
Traditionally wedding favors are timeless keepsakes that hold a special significance to the happy couple. For example, some grooms give out key chains with small pocket knives to the male guests that bear the logo of the groom’s favorite football team. A bride may distribute small bottles of her favorite bath soap to all the female guests. Wedding favors can also be from both the bride and the groom and be appropriate for all guests. An example of a wedding favor given to every guest would be a wine glass with a special message from both the bride and groom written on it in fancy lettering.
There are many different kinds of wedding favors to choose from and you want to choose the ones that reflect the style of the wedding and your own personal style. If the wedding is simple choose simple wedding favors, if the wedding is extravagant choose extravagant wedding favors. An extravagant wedding favor may overwhelm a simple ceremony and a simple wedding favor will appear out of place at an extravagant wedding.
The best way to choose an appropriate wedding favor is to choose a traditional wedding favor. A traditional wedding favor never goes out of style and is acceptable in all situations. Some examples of traditional wedding favors are flower baskets. Flower baskets that also contain chocolates are traditional wedding favors that will be appreciated by every guest.
You do not have to choose a traditional wedding favor so if you want to choose something that is unique and different for your wedding it is your prerogative. An example of a unique wedding favors is a wedding scroll with a customized text. You can get creative with your wedding favors if you are not bound by tradition. Just remember that you want to pick something that your guests will appreciate.
You can choose to make your own wedding favors instead of purchasing them. Making your own wedding favors can reduce the cost of the wedding and show a special appreciation for your guests. You can make any favor you think is appropriate. Some examples of wedding favors that you can make yourself are personal music mix cds, homemade jam or homemade cookies. Whatever you decide, you should ask yourself if it is something that your guests will enjoy receiving. A wedding favor is a reminder that your guests will use to remember your special day long after it is over, so some care and thought should go into planning what you want to give.
It is a good idea to provide a wedding favor just for children to keep them occupied because children can be disruptive. Some crayons and a coloring book or a miniature puzzle should be sufficient. Bubbles are traditional for weddings and kids love them. You can also put the children’s wedding favors in bags made especially for kids that feature cartoon characters.
You must order wedding favors as soon as you can because suppliers can get very busy. If you order early it will allow plenty of time for your favors to arrive. You must be certain that they arrive before the rehearsal dinner and it is better to have them too early than too late.
If you take the time to determine what wedding favors are right for your wedding you will be pleased with the results.
