An often overlooked part of any wedding planning involves the wedding favours. Many times favours are forgotten about until the last minute. Brides and grooms run around frantically trying to find something suitable for their wedding party. Other times, the wedding couple can’t agree on what to give their party or they don’t have any idea on what’s the best way to show their appreciation. Favours are a great way to say thank you to all those who worked so hard to make your wedding a success. Therefore, take time to find something special and meaningful for your wedding party.
When looking for a wedding favour, feel free to get a little creative. You can research a ton of different ideas on sites like Wikipedia, Pinterest, Etsy, and even eBay. These sites can give you valuable ideas of personalized gifts, as well as more unique offerings. They can also assist you in your wedding gown search. Take time to find items that match the theme of your wedding. Visit wedding planning sites that can help assist your decision making. It’s almost always a wise decision to consult a professional service for their input.
Below are some general ideas for favours that blend both traditional elements and more contemporary themes.
Engraved glassware or drink ware
This is a great way to honor your wedding party with an item that’s useful, but also gives them a nice memento of your union. You can elect to different styles such as champagne glasses, pewter mugs, or standard everyday glassware.
Practical everyday use gifts
A nice gift for a man may be a small toolkit or specialty flashlight. Most women would love to receive a collection of lotions or bath products.
Lots of thought items
Homemade candles offer a personal touch. Personalized scrap books offer a great personal touch. Another great handmade gift is canned jams and jellies. The bride or groom to be may have a knack for crafts or carpentry. Making personalized wood displays are a heartfelt way to show your bridesmaids and groomsmen that you’re grateful to them. Handmade drink coasters, pottery vases, and ornaments all add a terrific personalized touch to your favours.
Customized selection of candy bars
Many companies will make you customized candy bars that are labeled with your desired inscriptions. You can add the bridesmaid or groomsman’s name and also include the wedding program on the wrapper.
Other edible favours
Edible gift baskets are great for favours and there’s something for everyone. You may also purchase your party a membership to a company that deals in fine steaks or cheeses. A variety cookie tray is always a welcome gift. A basket of coffee and tea arrangements are also a nice touch.
Don’t overlook your wedding favours. Find items that best represent your special day and will be appreciated by those around you. Making your wedding unforgettable involves tending to every detail. Your favours are your thank you to the ones that mean the most to you. Make them special and memorable to all your family and friends.
