Wedding guest favors become lasting treasures of your special day. Your guests know how much you appreciate their presence when you give thoughtful wedding guest favors at your reception.
For centuries, wedding favors have been a traditional way to express gratitude to your guests. A few hundred years ago, wedding guest favors are exclusively for wealthy people who could afford these gifts. Guests were delighted to receive favors and the custom caught on for people from all backgrounds. Just like today, some keepsakes were handmade and others were pricey.
If your friends and family arrived at your reception and did not find wedding guest favors, it would be quite embarrassing. Today guests anticipate little gifts and look for them at each place setting when they arrive. If favors are not displayed next to the guests’ plates, they have a spot of honor at the reception. Either way, your guests want to get wedding guests favors as a keepsake of your big day. No matter what your budget or wedding theme, there are little gifts to compliment the event.
Match your wedding guest favors to your floral bouquets. Give your guests elegant orchid gel candles to match exotic arrangements. If you decide to use classic calla lilies, place small treasures in calla lily mini pails for each of your guests.
Your favors can be used to reflect the season of your wedding. At a summer wedding near the beach, “Castles in the Sand” castle tea lights take the seaside spirit home with your guests. At an awesome autumn wedding, “Fall in Love” garden gel candles display all the colors of the season at each place setting. Your guests will enjoy getting “Snowfall” exquisite glass photo coasters complete with your wedding photo. In the spring, give “Love Grows” plantable favors in a flower shape so your guests remember you as each flower in their garden blooms.
Personalized wedding favors are another popular option. Your guests will always remember your wedding when your favors are personalized with details such as your names and the date of the ceremony. Votive candles featuring your new monogram are a thoughtful, timeless choice for any type of wedding.
Popular wedding guest favors do double duty, such as photo frames. Your guests are directed to their seats by “Good Wishes” pearlized glass photo frame/place card holders they can use to proudly display your wedding photo when they get home.
Wedding favors are the perfect way to express your love and thanks to everyone attending your special day.
