More Great Wedding Favors

Flip Flop Wedding Favors

Common wedding favors don’t typically stand out as unique or particularly useful to their recipients.  They are your typical engraved beer bug or silver money clip.    Wedding favors are often thought of as souvenirs that the guests will look at and remember your big day for years to come.  The trick to leaving a lasting impression is to provide wedding favors that are meaningful and unique for your guest.  Here are some suggestions for how to give unique wedding favors:

  • Make them personalized- Not your typical beer mug but something useful like personalized stationery or an engraved pen set.  Monograms are a good choice.   The simple gesture of personalizing the ribbon wrapped around a favor is very tasteful
  • Make it homemade- Knowing that you took the time to make them a homemade gift sends a very positive message to your guests.   Some ideas are baked items, craft items and art pieces.  Be sure to keep this simple though.  You don’t want to be overwhelmed with the task and have them look sloppily constructed.  There are many do-it-yourself kits at the craft stores that can help you create many homemade gifts quickly.
  • Be different- Keep an open mind and check out the aisles at the store.  Think of unusual items that express the personalities of you and your partner.  Examples might be flavored tea, flower seed packets, gum, bookmarks or wine stoppers

If going with a themed wedding, develop your party favors to coincide with your theme.  Casino related wedding favors go with a Vegas themed wedding.  If you are getting married in the winter, favors developed around the theme of snowflakes will work well.  Beach related favors work particularly well for summer weddings.  Christian weddings might be more subdued with white and cream colored wedding favors with religious symbols tied in.

Luckily, access to the internet makes it easier than ever to find theme related wedding favors and incorporate them into your wedding day experience.  In fact, the Internet can be a great place to search for unique ideas for wedding favors.  The possibilities are endless.
