Archive for 'Favors'
Favors are by no means a necessity but, if you have extra money in your budget, they are a great way to show your appreciation. The options are endless (a cd, bag of candy, candle, donation to a charity etc.) and almost everything can be personalized, so the task isn’t choosing a favor, but choosing the RIGHT favor. Before making your choice, ask yourself, “Is this worth spending money on and will my guests enjoy/use this?”
Here are a few suggestions…
Choose food, but skip the standard small box of truffles.
One delicious (and large) macaroon is the perfect two-bite treat.
A “make your own smore’s kit” is cute and creative.
Fill a mason jar with hot chocolate ingredients for a favor that’s yummy, easy to take home and adorably packaged.
Choose fun, but make sure it’s really usable.
Your guests will actually use this deck of playing cards and think of you every time they pull them out to play.
“To Have and to Hold and to Keep your Drinks Cold” Clever right? This is another favor that your guests will actually use.
Guests will be able to use sunglasses immediately if you’re having a spring or summer daytime wedding.
Choose function, if you have the time.
Fill a book with your favorite recipes and/or ask guests, months before the big day, to send you their favorites.
A potted plant is eco-friendly, decorative and can also serve as a place card holder.
Olive oil is a highly used ingredient that everyone can appreciate.
