Weddings: Wedding Favors

Apr 29, 2008
Many people underestimate wedding favors and just how much work can go into them; as a consequence they are often left until the last minute to organize. As a rule of thumb when organizing events, keep things simple as they have a habit of becoming complicated without any human intervention. This is a part of the arrangements, like the guest list and seating arrangement that will often cause unnecessary stress when there doesn't have to be any.

If all other options fail you can always choose the easy wedding favor of flowers which can also decorate the reception at the same time. Owing to the nature of flowers, they can usually be left until later in the preparations which means the bride and groom will have less to worry about.

You might consider giving your guests a single red rose as a favor and this is extremely appropriate because a rose is a symbol of love plus roses do not need to be wrapped. It is a simple matter of asking one of your family to place the roses just before everyone is seated at the wedding reception table.

Unfortunately flowers do no appeal to everyone, but with three in every four receptions using candy, this is an easy wedding favor that will. If you prefer, there is an even easier method to give candy which can also save money at the same time. This just needs a large quantity of various candies placed in a large bowl on the middle of the table.

You can then provide each wedding guest with a small bag and a note encouraging them to enjoy the candy in the centerpiece. Of course this means that you won't have to wrap anything yourself but it should get the thumbs up from everyone.

If you prefer not to give your guests more to eat then another option is a small picture frame and if you like, it can be used on the day as placeholders. Pictures frames are often used as wedding favors but people spend a great deal of time wrapping each one individually to create a beautiful presentation for the guests. Almost all receptions have place names at the tables for the guests so this is an ideal way to present the frame without the need to spend time and more money on wrapping paper which will only be discarded.

A different but still an easy wedding favor is to supply every guest with a picture of themselves arriving at the wedding reception using the services of a professional photographer armed with a digital camera. It is a simple matter of bringing a printer along so the images can be printed off during the reception and are ready when the guests start to leave. Everyone will appreciate this wedding favor as it is a reminder they can cherish for many years. It would also be nice if the photographer could bring along a digital projector so all the photos he had taken of the guests could then be shown on a screen during the reception meal.
