When guests attend your wedding, they look forward to getting a token that makes them feel appreciated and rewarded for honouring your invitation. Wedding favors are ways to appreciate your guests and to create a lasting impression of your day.
However, most wedding favors end up being dumped and placed in less appropriate places by guests. To make your gifts unique, noticed and adorable, some tips are here to guide you on picking the perfect wedding favors.
1. Have a Good Thought!
Think critically of how you want your wedding favor to be like. Is it a gift that you would have wanted if you were given? How would your expression have been if you had received such a gift? Is it a gift you would have tossed away if you were given?
2. Decide on the Type of Wedding Favors
You have to decide on the type of gifts the guests would love. It could be edible favors such as cake pops, truffles, macarons, coffee and popcorn mix that the guests can enjoy on their way home or better still, gifts like keychains, ornaments, photo frames, photo clips or air freshener.
3. Select a Meaningful Gift
Choose wedding favors that speak about the wedding and share something you love about your guests.
4. Do a Trial Run!
Get sample of the wedding favors you choose to give your guests. You don’t want to notice a flaw after you’ve ordered hundreds of gifts. The same applies if you’re making the gifts.
5. Make Extra Favors to Avoid Shortage
You never can tell the exact number your guests would be or if some of them would have extra favors. It is necessary for backups to be ready to avoid shortage. You don’t want some guests receiving favors and others with nothing from your wedding.
6. Have a Wrap Up with Lovely Decorations
Create a thoughtful display that shows sign of appreciation to the guests. Wedding favor packaging should have impact on the guests as much as what is inside.
7. Plan the Display of the Wedding Favor
If the favors are very attractive and large in size, you may create a special table in the reception hall or close to the exit of the guests. If there are smaller favors, they should be arranged on the seats.
Tag each gift with a lovely sign that reads “Thank you”, “We appreciate your coming” or “Be our guests”. Sharing a lovely note is a way of thanking them for celebrating with you and expressing your gratitude for their love and support.
Follow these tips and hear lovely comments months after your wedding. Guests do not forget gestures as little as adorable wedding favors!
