Giving your wedding guests favors is a nice way to say, “Thank you for sharing in our special day.” You may be wondering what type of favors you could give to your guests, but can not come up with any ideas. This article will help give you some advice for picking the perfect wedding favors that your guests will love.
Give your husband-to-be, some cuff links and a tie clip on the morning of your wedding, so he can match your jewelry. It looks great in photos, when there is a splash of sparkle and color on both of you and it will be very meaningful for him to know that you were thinking of him on your big day.
Use a friend’s property to host your wedding. If someone you know has a nice backyard or a large farm, this can save a lot of money. Offer to pay a person to do the clean-up before and after the wedding, which would be the only cost for you.
Pick your wedding date to be at a memorable time in your life. For example, Valentine’s Day is a romantic time to get married and is also an easy date to remember. A birthday or other anniversary is also an excellent choice. This will make remembering the date easier if either of you are very forgetful! It can also give you a theme to work with like hearts or birthday candles.
Have an unexpected twist at your wedding to make it more memorable. If you are planning to have your wedding during the summer, consider having a winter related theme. If your wedding is planned for the winter, you could try a beach theme. Guests will remember that your wedding theme was different from the actual season.
Make sure that after your wedding you send thank-you notes to all of your guests for not only coming to your wedding but for the gifts that they gave to you. This will make them feel special and show that you appreciated them using their time to share your special moment.
If you’re planning on having a buffet at your wedding reception, work out a plan to get the food moving quickly so that no guest is left waiting. Consider having multiple tables at different locations in your venue so that many tables can go up at one time, shortening the lines at each.
Do not settle for the first wedding location you find–shop around. A wedding is a once in a lifetime experience that you want to make sure is perfect. Picking the wrong venue could be the difference between having the wedding of your dreams or having the wedding of your nightmares.
As was said at the beginning of this article, giving your wedding guests favors as a way of saying thank you is a very thoughtful gesture. There are many types of favors available, and hopefully after reading this article you have some fresh ideas for choosing wedding favors that you, and your guests will love.
