When searching for just the right favor or gift for guests at your wedding
When searching for just the right favor or gift for guests at your wedding, you can spend countless hours scouring through magazines, books, online publications, websites, and even asking everyone you know, just to find some ideas to personalize the favors you want to give your guests. And, sometimes, even with all of this hard work, you still can’t find just the right “something” to use as a favor at your wedding. So what do you do? If you can’t find something that is truly unique, then try some of these ideas instead:
If you are having a seasonal wedding
If you are having a seasonal wedding, say during the fall or spring, then you can use this to your advantage and buy some simple things for favors. For fall weddings, you can buy individual packets of cider mix and put it with a fall-colored napkin with your names and wedding date on it along with a fake, fall leaf or fall-colored ribbon. For spring weddings, you can get packets of your favorite flower seeds and attach them to a fake flower that matches the ones you are using in your wedding. The possibilities are endless with seasonal items that can be used as favors.
Another great favor is something that can be used as a gift for the bride and groom to enjoy later
Another great favor is something that can be used as a gift for the bride and groom to enjoy later. Placing disposable cameras on the tables at the reception is a great way to allow guests and family to feel like they are truly part of the wedding by allowing them to take pictures of the reception. This will give the bride and groom a unique look at what they didn’t see while they were cutting cake, opening presents, greeting guests, dancing, and eating. They will be able to cherish moments that they didn’t even know existed by allowing guests to take pictures and then leave the camera behind for the bride and groom to develop later. You can have the guests leave the cameras on the tables, or you can set up special bins or buckets to collect them on their way out.
Another great item that you can purchase for a wedding favor
Another great item that you can purchase for a wedding favor is small tins that can be filled with candy or nuts. You can also personalize these tins with pictures of the bride and groom by having their favorite pictures copied and then pasted on top of these tins. Place these tins around the tables for guests to pick up when they arrive at the reception. This is a great way to give a very personalized gift that will keep memories of your special day alive in everyone’s hearts.
Maybe you are a gifted writer or poet. Take the time to write several small poems or passages on small scrolls that can be placed around the tables for the guests to pick up. Make sure that these words reflect on your love for each other, and include your names and the date of the wedding. You can secure them with a ribbon that matches the colors of your wedding for a personal touch.
Lately, another popular choice for wedding favors
Lately, another popular choice for wedding favors is to donate one dollar per guest to your favorite charity and then place a small card at each place setting, letting the guest know that a donation has been made in their name to that charity. The thought behind this idea is that these guests have spent money on a gift for you and your new spouse, so why not spend a little money on them, while helping others as well. Make sure that you express on the card that you only wanted to repay their generosity by giving something to someone in need in their honor.
There are literally thousands of ways that you can say “Thank You” to your guests. Hopefully, these ideas have helped to spark a unique idea of your own for your wedding favors or gifts. Just remember that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to personalize these favors and gifts, and your guests will appreciate them just as much!
