Picking the Best Wedding Favors
It can be hard to decide on what wedding favors to give out at your wedding. Do you go with something handmade or would it be best to give away some flowers? Or, do you want to give your guests elaborate and personalized favors? Or, is it best to go somewhere in between elaborate and simple? While some couples pick the favors to match the theme, others go with favors to match the chosen colors. And, of course, there's also the option of simply going with unique items that will help their guests remember the wedding day as the years go by.
If you are struggling with picking out the perfect favors, you might want to consider these ideas.
Hand Made DIY Favors
Some people love making things themselves and the results will always be unique and almost always memorable. This is an especially good choice if the number of guests on your list is small. If you are having a large wedding, on the other hand, you may not have time to make the favors yourself. Also, if you're not into making things yourself, now is not the time to learn. You already have enough to do.
Matching a Theme
It's always a good idea for the favors to match the theme if you are planning to have a themed wedding. If you are having, for example, a Princess wedding, then fairy tale-themed favors would be an excellent choice. Likewise, a winter-themed wedding could have crystals or fine goblets as favors.
Simple Personalized Wedding Favors
Personalized wedding favors are always a crowd pleaser. Having the name of the bride and groom and the wedding date on the favor is a great way to remind your guests of your special day every time they use that item. Key chains or coffee mugs are a good choice because they are usable and can be personalized as well.
Simple favors are an inexpensive and easy way to handle the favors decision. Candles or flowers would be high on the list of simple things you could choose, but there are many different options available. Therefore, you can still choose the color and style you want for your special day.
Favors with Seeds
Packets of flower seeds are also a great choice for wedding favors. Not only are they something that the guests can plant and enjoy as they grow, they also symbolize the new beginning that your wedding represents. Best of all, nearly everyone can plant some flower seeds, either in a yard or a flowerpot. You can choose flowers that bloom in the colors of your wedding, thereby reminding your guests of the big day months - and possibly years - later.
