These are a few of my favorite. . . Favors!
Paperia | September 2014
Favors are often either placed individually at each table setting or offered in a group arrangement for guests to take as they enter/exit the reception.
They are also a wonderful way to personalize your wedding and to celebrate your one-of-a-kind love!
Here are a few wedding favor ideas to stir your creativity and inspire your planning.
Everyone loves a delicious treat to tickle their taste buds! Two decadent chocolate bon bons wrapped delicately in a favor box with satin ribbon. A container of personalized M&Ms. A small box of local ground coffee for a Seattle wedding. A decorated tin of Old Bay seasoning for a seaside wedding in Maryland. A half split of wine with a personalized label for a vineyard wedding. The options are truly endless!
Considering that your guests will be enjoying a meal and wedding cake, be sure that edible favors are wrapped and packaged so that guests may take them to enjoy later.
Another idea is to gift your guests with a practical item they can use in their daily lives. Some examples would be a lavender-scented sachet at a garden wedding, personalized golf balls at a country club wedding, or a bottle stopper at a vineyard wedding. Other items of interest to the masses include koozies, matchboxes, and glassware.
Why not have favors play double-duty for event decorations? Individual bud vases with a single stem at each place setting serve both as a beautiful table accent and a lovely memento.
For a cause
You can’t go wrong with offering a donation to a cause that is near and dear to your hearts in lieu of a physical favor. A local pet adoption center, a disease or disability prevention or management organization, or an awareness campaign, among others, are some noble causes worth consideration. If you choose to donate, have cards printed and placed at each setting or a small framed sign placed on each table to communicate this with your guests.
