Most brides and grooms put more thought and attention into the preparation of their wedding day than any other day in their lives. One of the most time consuming and frustrating tasks can be making a decision on wedding favors for your guests. There are a large variety of choices on the market however, many of the products being offered are often not worth their price or are not very practical or useful for a wedding guest to receive.
Every couple can always choose to be unique by the way they express their gratitude. Unique and custom wedding favors can leave a lasting impression and add a personal touch to the wedding reception. Many couples are choosing wedding favours that celebrate their cultural heritage, reflect their personal style or the theme of their wedding.
Chocolates or truffles in particular are probably one of the most common gifts and are practical to give as well, as most individuals will enjoy good quality chocolates. There are various options in terms of packaging chocolates. Try packaging your wedding favours in custom favor boxes that match the colours being used on your reception tables and throughout your wedding. For a fall wedding, place a brown coloured box with burnt orange coloured ribbon tied in a knot at each place setting. Use the ribbon to attach a favor tag with a maple leaf printed on it along with your names and the date of the wedding.
Some other great ideas for wedding favours include bottle stoppers, letter openers, coasters, little picture frames that can double as place cards, and of course candles that will suit your wedding theme. Again, presentation of the favors is very important as it will reflect the quality of the gift and the effort and care you have taken to choose your favours.
There are also a number of wedding favors that are inspired by nature that can along with many different wedding themes. Try giving each of your guests a lantern with a candle for a garden weeding theme or seeds packaged in custom seed packets sealed with a sticker printed with your monogram.
Wedding gifts for your guests can also be planned in relation to the season of the wedding. For a winter wedding consider a wedding favour such as snowflake shaped keychain or a Christmas ornament for each wedding guest.
Often, some of the most well received gifts are ones that can be used around the house. Some great ideas are corkscrews, bottle openers, measuring tapes, tea spoons and coffee scoops. These items can be used by your guests on a daily basis and can be found in heart shapes for presentation.
When selecting favours, it is important to keep your budget in mind. If you see an item that you believe your guests will enjoy and is reasonably priced, donít hesitate to purchase the item just because it does not fit in exactly with your wedding theme. You can always work on customizing the packaging of the favour to match your wedding colours. Ask your stationery company to design a box printed with your monogram on it or with an image that will suit your theme.
