Unique Bridal Shower And Wedding Party Favors

Nov 3, 2007
Preparing for a wedding is a time of celebration and memories. The tradition of giving guest favors or small gifts lives on as a way to thank them for sharing in your special day. Some favors are used as part of the wedding decorations and then taken home by the guests at the end of the reception.

Other favors are useful items that will give the guests something they will use over and over and with each use will remind them of your wedding. Some of the most popular favors are candy, usually packaged creatively. Choosing a favor can be difficult, but if you figure out what type of favor you would like it can make it easier.

Giving favors a double meaning by using them as part of the decorations saves money and space. Table toppers such as candles, flowers, and glasses will be incorporated into the table decorations. Items like these can be personalized with the couple's names and wedding date to make them a treasured keepsake.

Some other decoration favor ideas include mini salt and pepper shakers, origami animals, and napkin rings. All of these will help add to the table decor and then be easily taken by the guests when they leave. Another idea that has been showing up at recent weddings is what is called a breakaway centerpiece. These centerpieces are made up of the individual favors. Usually they are either gift wrapped boxes stacked or small vases with flowers clustered together. You can use your imagination. Using favors as decorations will help you to get two things done at once. You will be able to give your guests a nice gift while also saving yourself some hassle.

Guests always appreciate a wedding favor they can use again and again. These favors can also be personalized to reflect the couples names and wedding date. To save money you can go to wholesalers that supply businesses with promotional items. These are usually things that are useful and you are sure to find something that will tie into your wedding. You could find pairs of chopsticks, paperweights, notepads, bookmarks or keyrings in the wholesale catalogs. Other useful items include wine bottle stoppers, candles, soaps, tea bags, mugs or small plants. Try to find something that will be of use to your guests as well as look good with your reception decorations.

Food items are on of the easiest wedding favors you can give. It is simple and inexpensive to buy candy or nuts in bulk, then put them in simple packages to give your guests. You will find guests like food items because it is something they can use and also something that will not need a special place in their home. Some gifts, like plants, can require work that your guests may not want to do. Candy or nuts is something that will show your appreciation and bring a little joy to your guests. You can use creative packaging and the actual colors of the candies/nuts to tie them into your wedding decorations. Food favors are always welcome and easy to do.

Choosing favors for your wedding only add to the many choices you have to make. It doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming if you try to keep it simple. Make your favors part of the decor, something useful or a food item. Sticking to easy favors will help eliminate large amounts of time and money being spent on them allowing you to focus on other things.
