Choosing The Perfect Wedding Favors

Nov 17, 2007
Choosing the right wedding favors is an important part of your wedding preparations. It is these wedding favors that guests will go home with. Years down the line, after all the other details of the wedding have faded into memory, your wedding favors will serve as poignant memories of this special day.

Though budget is one of the factors that go into determining the kind of wedding favors you choose; it is certainly by no means a limiting factor. Wedding favors are available in all price ranges and you are sure to find something that suits you. It is far more important to first choose a wedding favor that reflects your personality, as well as the style of the wedding and then find something suitable that fits within your budget. Wedding favors run the gamut from quirky to practical; extremely elegant to most casual and entirely offbeat to absolutely charming.

If you are looking for a traditional wedding favor idea that has stood the test of time, there's nothing to beat burnished silver photo frames. It has a special significance as your guests can frame their special wedding photograph in it and put it on their bed side table; what better way to think of two special occasions at once! This is one wedding favor that you can be sure everyone will cherish for years to come.

If you are planning a beach wedding you could give your guests exquisitely designed candles in assorted shell shapes or unusual votive candles placed in holders that look like replicas of beach buckets. Magnets in the shape of shells, whales or dolphins, accompanied by a few significant words are also a good idea and serve as eternal reminders of your special day.

For a winter wedding that is being held just before Christmas, personalized Christmas ornaments serve of everlasting memoirs of you and your wedding day as your guests hang them up on the Christmas tree every year.

If you and your spouse are avid readers, give your guests elegant, gold-edged bookmarks with your favorite poem inscribed on it. Or maybe you could get a special wedding book compiled, with your favorite sayings or poems included within. Personalize the book with a few words of your own.

A gift of spices makes an unusual wedding favor. Attaching a tag that says something like, "Love is the spice of life" gives the gift its due significance.

Decorating every table with a unique centerpiece can serve the dual purpose of decorating your venue and a wedding favor that guests can take home after the reception is over.
