Tips To Plan For Wedding Favors

Dec 19, 2007
The most common mistake made when shopping for wedding favors is not allowing yourself enough time. This makes sense because you have so many details to deal with. In this article we will look at 6 shopping tips to help you buy your wedding favors and do it with plenty of time to spare.

1. First of all do not try and do everything in one day. If you are working off a to do list you are trying to cross things off as you get them done. On you list break shopping for wedding favors into several different things and not as one. It is not reasonable to feel you can do it all at once.

2. Do not wait until the last minute. You can not slow down if you are pressed for time. By allowing yourself more time to shop you can save yourself both time and money.

3. Establish a budget up front and stick to it as much as possible. When you budget for wedding expenses such as locatin, entertainment, and food, be sure and include wedding favors.

This is not an incidental item and you do not want to be surprised by what you spend. Determine the number of guests you will be inviting and then budget per person to cover this cost.

4. Allow time for personalizing your wedding favors. If you are going to personalize your wedding favors in any way you have to give the company doing it time to get the order in, do your work, and then ship it to you. You can save extra rush order costs by giving everyone plenty of time to do it correctly without being in a hurry.

5. Who is going to do the wrapping. Depending on your time and budget this is an area you can save some money on if you want to do it. Because so many last minute wedding details will be popping up you do not want to feel rushed when it comes to getting your wedding favors done.

One detail you can get rid of is having them wrapped for you. If you do decide to do it yourself try and get it done several weeks before they big day.

6. Look at the total cost of wedding favors and then break out personalization and wrapping. If you decide to do any of this yourself consider the cost of buying tape, ribbons, paper, and anything else involved. Then compare it to the total cost of having it done for you to decide if the time you save is worth it to you.

While considering this tips it is always a fun idea to take a friend or friends with you on your hunt to organize the perfect wedding. Family members or friends can also add very helpful tips or suggestions for planning your special day.

Just remember to consider the time of year, what your friends and family members who are attending your special enjoy, as well as implementing your own personal style will make choosing the perfect favor an easy one.

These wedding favor shopping tips should help you be better organized and to stay within your budget. Just slow down, allow plenty of time, and enjoy yourself.
