Unique Wedding Favor - How Do You Gather Ideas?

Aug 18, 2007
When you decide to get married, you have to start your wedding planning as soon as possible. You would like to make your wedding, as well as all the wedding items, as unique as possible. This is also true for your wedding favor.

However, you may find it quite difficult to come up with a really wonderful and unique idea for your wedding favor. In fact, you need to seek for different ideas from different sources. The followings are some of the common sources that may give you wonderful ideas.

Search on the web

The first source that both you and I can certainly think of is the internet. It is likely we cannot live without the internet nowadays. It is totally true that you can find many different ideas and concepts of unique wedding favor on the internet. There are a lot of websites and newsgroups which are related to this topic.

You will probably search on the web using search engine such as google and yahoo. And it should be the most convenient way of searching on the web. When you are trying to search for your wedding favor on the web using this method, you may need to try the combinations of different keywords. For example, instead of searching for the keyword wedding favor, you will try to search for unique wedding favor, or even unique Chinese wedding favor.

Consult your friends and relatives

Another great way of gathering ideas is to consult your friends and relatives. In fact it is just like a brain storming process. Since your friends and relatives will have different experiences from yours, they may have seen something that you have never been thought of before. Their ideas can certainly help you when you decide your wedding favor.

However, unlike the case of searching on the web, consulting others may involve personal feelings. You may have immediate judgments on the ideas provided by your friends and relatives. As advised by the book "Six Thinking Hats" written by Edward de Bono, it will be better to just collect all these ideas without any judgment since it is only a brain storming process for gathering ideas.

Consult wedding planners and visit your local stores

The job of a wedding planner is of course to help you to plan your wedding. Since they are actively involved in the wedding industry, they will know the latest trend about wedding. They should know more than you about wedding. They probably try to search for new ideas and concepts everyday in order to survive in the industry.
As a result, they should be able to give you excellent advices on your wedding favor.

You may also seek for new ideas from your local stores. You should not limit yourself to gift shops or shops which are specialized in wedding favors. Instead you have to visit different kinds of shops. This is the essence of sourcing and searching. If you limit yourself to conventional gift shops, you may end up with ideas on conventional wedding favor.
