One of the greatest times in someone’s life is when he or she decides to spend the rest of their life with the person that was put on this earth just for them. Weddings are wonderful and everyone wants people to leave their wedding remembering how great it really was. We all know that couples have a lot to do to get ready for weddings like booking a venue, inviting guests and planning the reception. However, couples sometimes over look one of the best things in a wedding, the wedding favors. Some people may not spend a lot of time on them or they may not even give them out at all. This is because certain couples tend to think that favors do not add value to their wedding. So, why bother, right? Well, those couples are mistaken. Favors actually do add importance to your wedding.
Wedding favors have been around for centuries. The upper class started giving gifts to their guests at weddings and it caught on. It is now a tradition. To some people it is actually considered bad manners not to give any favors at a wedding. Your guests want to feel like they are special and that you wanted them to come. So, to show your appreciation, you should send them home with a wonderful reminder of your special day. You want people to remember what your wedding was like. If that is not enough reason to have favors at your wedding, think of them as a nice decoration that you can sit on the reception tables. People will see them when they walk in and be amazed at how put together everything is. This is why a lot of thought should be put into which ones you should have.
What Should Yours Be?
Does it have to be edible? Should it be something they can keep forever? Does it have to be expensive? Your favors can be anything you want them to be. There are many different types of favors you can have. Favors can be theme, ethnically, or traditionally based. You could have something more common and traditional like candles or jewelry or something more unique and creative like an origami flower or Belgian chocolates. It is completely up to you. However, the best choice for a favor is one that comes from your heart. It needs to be something personal so that when people look at it, they think of you.
Yes, you have a lot to do to get ready for the big day. Just do not forget about your wedding favors. Whether you want to make you guests feel appreciated or you just want to have a nice decoration, the favors you pick out will be a big part of your wedding. So, get out, explore your options and find something that will make your wedding one of the best ones around.
