The giving of wedding favors is a tradition that goes back many years. Small but meaningful gifts are given to guests at the conclusion of the wedding festivities to thank them for being a part of such a momentous occasion. Wedding favors can take many forms and, even though they are not obligatory on the part of the honored couple, they are a great way to provide the guests with a souvenir of the cherished event.
Wedding favors are available in a variety of themes, styles and designs but the best and most memorable ones provide something of value or usefulness to the guest. If the wedding has a theme then an appropriate wedding favor should reflect that theme, bring a smile to the face of each guest and yet stay within the budget.
Some newlyweds like to go for edible favors such as gourmet chocolates or truffles, candies and lollipops, mints, miniature cakes, fortune cookies, exotic coffees and tea, cocktail mixes, personalized M&M’s, wines or uniquely bottled jams and jellies. Others prefer to give decorative items such as picture frames, coasters, figurines, paperweights, snow globes, bud vases, bells, engraved mugs and card holders. Items personalized with the couple’s names are popular.
