With the numerous wedding trends on Pinterest, it’s difficult to pinpoint which ones to follow. It usually results in the combination of elements that appear unorganised once you look at them collectively. Choosing even the smallest detail matters in the grand scheme of things– and this includes the wedding favours for your guests.
There are various reasons why you want your guests at your wedding. It ranges from wanting to celebrate the milestone with them to fulfil your duty as a family member. Whatever it is, thanking them for their time with a little token, especially if they play a significant role in the ceremony, is not only a norm but a form of decency.
Worry not, here are some details to guide you in selecting the best wedding favour:
Think of what your guests can use in the long run. Beyond the token inside, you can consider the packaging as another gift. Instead of choosing a wrapper or a box that will be thrown away upon opening, opt for reusable eco-friendly materials. Here in the UK, you can buy hampers online and pick out what to include inside. There are pre-prepared gifts that can be personalised specifically for your wedding. Not only will a gift like this look visually pleasing, but it will also definitely give the guests more reasons to take it home.
Select within your wedding’s theme. This will instantly shorten the list of possible gift ideas. Plus, it will make your event look organised from beginning to end. If you’re having a vineyard wedding, you can provide a mini bottle of wine for every guest.
If you don’t have a specific theme for your wedding, match the packaging with your wedding colours for coordination.
Why not consider a token that has a meaning to you as a couple? Take, for instance, the album that played in the car on your first date. Share this anecdote on the gift card. Let your guests into your love story; not all of them knows the details. By doing this, they will not only take home a gift but a memory.
You can go for proven and tested gifts that everyone likes. Add a little bit of character to it; then you’re all set with a classic but trendy gift item. Sweets, for example, is a classic wedding giveaway. If you’re thinking of having bite-sized chocolates as a wedding favour, perhaps you can request for an out of the ordinary flavour made specifically for your wedding, like vanilla bourbon and blackcurrant. Have them placed inside a glass jar that your guests can reuse after.
Try hitting two birds with one stone. For easier logistics, look for a supplier that can do your requested packaging for you. Lessen the work that you have to face before the big day by choosing a supplier with consistent customer reviews. See if they deliver on time, or if the quality is a match with the price. Suppliers are there to make the job easier for you, not to cause you trouble.
Remember that your wedding is a culmination of your love story. Allow every detail to represent a chapter or a scene in your life together. Fill your wedding with memories– in more ways than one.
