You may be tempted to skimp on your wedding favors and not put much thought into choosing the right ones. But without choosing carefully, your tiny tokens will end up discarded and forgotten.
Make sure your wedding favors stand out and pack a punch by making the right choice! Wedding favors are the perfect way to thank your guests for attending and help them remember your big day for years to come.
But how do you choose the right wedding favors? Here are our top five tips to help make your decision a little easier:
1. Incorporate your theme
Start by thinking about your colors. Choose some chocolates or candies in those colors for your wedding favors to reflect your color scheme. Your venue can also play a part in your theme. A flip flop keychain or seashell candle would be perfect for a beach or destination wedding. For a wedding at a vineyard, go with wine stoppers or bottle openers.
2. Reflect the season
Throwing a fall wedding? Look for pumpkin-themed favors or package up your favorite pie or baked good. For a winter wedding, ornaments make perfect wedding favors. Whatever season you choose to throw your wedding in, giving out seasonal wedding favors is always a hit.
3. Go practical
Your guests probably don’t need a beer koozie with your wedding date stamped on it. Think about giving them something they’ll actually use and enjoy having. Ask yourself, “is this something I would want?” Wine glasses or candles are a good option. Or consider choosing an edible favor. A delicious treat definitely won’t go to waste!
4. Show off your personality
Your wedding day is the one day it’s completely about you. That means your wedding should be a reflection of you – and that includes your wedding favors! Choose something that is meaningful to you and your fiance and gives your guests a taste of your personality. If you’ve got a green thumb, go with potted plants. Is golf your favorite sport? Give out personalized golf balls.
5. Don’t forget about the display
To give your wedding favors that extra special touch, make sure you think about the presentation. Consider using a favor box or wrapping them in fun paper or tissue to make a statement. With beautiful packaging, your guests will be wowed as soon as they see the wedding favors on the tables.
