How to Choose the Best Wedding Favors

wedding favor ideasThe best wedding favors are more than just little tokens of your love and appreciation for your wedding guests; they represent your acknowledgement of all the efforts that your family and friends have done to assist you throughout the course of wedding planning.  From the aunt who helped you repair the sole of your heels to the best friend who gave you pep talks when wedding stress seemed overwhelming, you want to honor your loved ones for everything they’ve done for you.

These are the exact reasons why you should choose the best wedding favors possible!

Forget choosing amusing knickknacks. Forget giving your guests potted plants that will only go unnoticed.  You want to wow and thank your guests with your wedding favors – and you’ll do exactly that with our advice:

  • One of the biggest mistakes brides and grooms make when choosing the best wedding favors is that they select cutesy knick-knacks that don’t really do anything for the guests.  Sure, that little boat replica might look adorable with your nautical-themed wedding, but honestly, who really wants something like that hanging around their house?

To avoid giving your wedding guests “clutter” wedding favors, think function instead of fashion.  This means that you’ll want to choose wedding favors that can aid your wedding guests in performing everyday activities.  A great idea can be a magnetic notepad that your guests can keep on their refrigerators.  To make this a truly functional gift, avoid monogramming it with your newlywed initials.  Instead, incorporate your wedding colors to ensure that more of your guests use your wedding favor.

  • Here’s a great idea if you’re hosting a vintage-style wedding: instead of a notepad, opt to give your guests the gift of a stationary set.  This is a unique and touching gift that may even encourage your guests to write a few letters to loved ones around the world.  And hey, everyone loves to receive letters – so why not give your guests the excuse?
  • Ultimately, the best wedding favors represent the middle ground between a functional gift and one that honors the look and feel of your wedding ceremony and reception.  Once you’ve met this middle ground, you’ve officially found the best wedding favors for your guests.

Don’t be afraid to get creative with your wedding favors.  The more functional yet creative your wedding favors, the more impressed your guests will be!
