What will your wedding guests
remember about your big day? Will it be your dress Mats Sundin
Jersey , the music during the ceremony, the wedding cake, or the
dancing? Of course you want them to remember the most important parts you and
your fianc exchanging vows, and visiting with friends and family. However,
whether you place importance on them or not, the favors your guests receive are
often the most memorable aspect of the occasion. For that reason, it is wise to
spend some time locating a unique favor your guests will love, and this buying
guide will help you do just that.
What are the Qualities of a Perfect
There are many factors to consider when buying favors for your
wedding. One fact is certain, there are thousands of wonderful, magical,
darling Mark Arcobello
Jersey , clever favors out there, and you will be enthralled my
most of them. If you start the process by looking at samples online, in stores,
and in catalogs and magazines, you may lose sight of your vision. For that
reason, it is best to make a few decisions before you start looking for the
First and foremost, you need to be clear about what you want
your favors to convey to your guests. Would you like to say thank you to your
guests, perhaps with a gift certificate for a local service or restaurant, or a
miniature photo frame; or perhaps give them a symbol of your relationship, such
as a small photo album which includes a photo of the bride and groom, or a CD
with your favorite music.
Do you want to help your guests by giving them
something useful Leo Komarov
Jersey , such as a gardening trowel, cosmetic bag, a tiny sewing
kit, or for a truly spectacular favor, spreaders adorned with roses and pearls;
or would you like to give a favor that is just for fun, such as brightly colored
flip flop place card frames, or a mood ring?
Do you want your guests to
enjoy the favor at your wedding, with a box of pretty chocolates, truffles, or
Jordan almonds; or would you rather give them a keepsake to take home, such as a
silver beaded frame place card holder Lanny McDonald
Jersey , which doubles as a miniature photo album? Perhaps you
would like to inspire them, with a donation made to your favorite cause; maybe
finger paints or a heart-shaped ice cream scoop to bring out the kid in them?
Ask yourself these questions, and you will have a better idea of what you need
in a favor.
Once you know what type of favor you would like to give your
guests, you can consider the various options available. For instance, if you
have chosen to give something edible, you now need to decide if you want
something sweet or savory; and if you want a bag or box of goodies, or just one
item. At this point, you may not be sure what is available, but do jot down any
parameters that come to mind.
Now that you have a
basic idea of what you need in a favor, you can start to think about what you
want. Start your research by looking at online stores, in party Kris Versteeg
Jersey , wedding, and specialty stores, and in magazines and gift
catalogs. Keep a file of the favors you love, but dont look at the price right
now. You can narrow your choices down later, and you may be able to find
similar, less expensive options.
You will find dozens of wedding websites
and magazines for your search, but do also consider alternative sources for
favors. For example, if you have a favorite bath product store, you may be able
to arrange to purchase soaps, small bottles of lotion or bubble bath, or even a
small sampler basket designed especially for your wedding. You may also find
unique favor options at online stores that specialize in gift baskets Jonathan Bernier
Jersey , party supplies, or corporate gifts. Another idea is to
take purchase favor sample kits, available from most vendors, to help you decide
which favor to purchase. You can receive several items in a theme, or even
several types of packaging options, usually for under $10 or $15 per set.
Narrow Down Your Choices
Your next step is to come up with a list of
top choices, by eliminating some of the options. You can do this by considering
Does it Fit With My?
You will find many favors designed
to work within a theme, lucky in love playing card-themed bottle stoppers, or
dice-shaped cookies for a wedding in Las Vegas,; or for a wedding in wine
country, you might choose a half bottle of wine Johnny Bower
Jersey , or a gel wine glass candle. Consider whether the favors
you like will fit in with the theme, dcor, or setting of your wedding.
Will Everyone be Able to Enjoy it?
It is perfectly acceptable to give
children separate favors, but you will need to find one favor for all of the
grown-ups. Ask yourself if the favors on your list would appeal to most people.
For example, you may love a set of satin pillow sachets, but it may be more
appropriate as a favor for your bridal shower. A fun favor that suits men and
women is a his and hers golf ball and tee set.
Does it Fit My
Now is the time to consider what you can afford. Make sure you factor
in the price per piece, any additional costs for assembly, tax, and shipping
charges. You may want to order a bit extra in case some of them are damaged, so
factor that in as well. If you are disappointed because your favorite favors
cant make the cut, brainstorm alternatives. Could you do some of the assembly
Consider Packaging and Presentation
Most wedding favors
have their own special packaging John-Michael
Liles Jersey , but you can change the packaging or come up with
your own ideas. If you have a favor in mind that is not based on your theme but
also does not clash with it, you could choose packaging that would suit the
theme. For example, if you would like to give book of poems or a padded silk
