Memorable Keepsakes With Unique Wedding Favors

Nov 23, 2007
You want your wedding to be memorable. You want people to walk away talking about it for months to come. You need your wedding favors to be unique. Unique wedding favors can come in three typical types: personalized, handmade or creative. You can mix these different types together or use just one to create unique wedding favors that your guests will love to take home.

The idea of personalizing a wedding favor is not unique unto itself. Many people put their names and wedding date on favors. The unique part of using personalization is to personalize the favor in a unique way. Since many people use their names and wedding date this is the best place to stray from the crowd. Try using a memorable quote, poem or saying instead. Use something meaningful, but that will really catch the attention of guests. If you really want to use the traditional personalized name/date then try doing it in a different way. You can write, stitch or engrave your personalization into any favor. Use unique types of materials to do this. Expand your thoughts outside the box to get favors that are truly uniquely personalized.

Anything handmade shows the person you are giving it to that you put a lot of thought, creativity and emotion into making it. Your guests would be delighted to receive something you made yourself. Keep it simple because you have to make quite a few of whatever you decide on. Try using a special talent you have to make a wedding favor guests will cherish. To keep it simple make sure you have minimal materials and time invested in the favors. Each favor will be slightly different because they are handmade. You can be guaranteed that nobody will receive that favor at any other wedding. Having handmade wedding favors will give your guests something interesting that they will surely talk about for a while.

Approaching your wedding favors with a creative flair gives you many options to chose from. The best way to go about a creative angle is to chose a theme to work around. You can then chose off-the-wall type favors that suit your theme. This helps you to keep everything tied together. Favors that are eye-catching become conversation items that will add to your reception. Try mini type favors, such as, mini salt and pepper shakers or mini champagne flutes. You can also go crazy and hand out retro favors that someone would have received at a birthday party. Anything goes when you are using your imagination.

Choosing wedding favors can be fun. You can use your creative side to personalize your favors, make your own favors or just go wild and chose something nobody else would even think of. If your goal is to get your guests attention, have fun and keep them talking then going the route of unique wedding favors will help you reach it.

Try and be very unique and original when going after shocking your wedding reception guest. Also try and make sure the wedding favors is practical and useful.
