Thank Your Friends and Family with Wedding Favors

October 21, 2010

Wedding favors are a great way to thank friends and family for sharing your wedding day with you. Although favors are not a requirement, most couples do provide their guests with some sort of favor as a little token of appreciation. A lot of couples have an idea for their wedding favors in mind long before all other details are taken care of because favors can be a lot of fun!

Whether you decide to hand out edible wedding favors for guests to enjoy immediately, favors that you made yourself, or cheap wedding favors that you ordered online, your guests will appreciate the gesture. Besides, wedding favors can act as decoration for your reception either at each place setting or displayed on their own table.

Brides and their bridesmaids often get together a week or two before the ceremony to make wedding favors. Some simple arts and crafts projects can turn into some of the prettiest favors imaginable. Homemade soap and candles are popular wedding favors. If you’re not extremely crafty, you could also package store-bought scented soaps in cellophane bags decorated with curled ribbons the same color as your bridesmaid gowns. A sticker or label bearing the bride and groom’s names and wedding date would easily personalize the package. The same can be done with store-bought jar candles-a personalized label can be stuck onto the glass jar where a brand label would normally appear.
