Delight Your Guests with Unique Wedding Favors
If you’ve been to a number of weddings before, chances are you have the typical candle favors, bubbles, or favor boxes of candy. When planning your own wedding, consider trying something unique or different from what others have done. You don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on favors, only to find that half of your guests left them at the table because they couldn’t be bothered to take them. With fun or unique wedding favors, you can be sure that guests will be pleased about what they received and delighted at the thought that went into them.
One important thing to keep in mind when picking out your wedding favors is that you want to pick something that guests will actually use or keep once they leave your wedding. Even though those “two peas in a pod” salt and pepper shakers are adorable, how many people are going to actually use them? Instead, they’ll probably just end up at the next yard sale. Also, if you’re doing a theme wedding, favors can be a really great way to tie in your theme.
So what are some suggestions for unique wedding favors? The following are just some unique wedding favor ideas to help you get started on your own thinking and inspire you:
Luggage tags. Whether you’re doing a travel theme wedding or not, luggage tags can be a great favor. Some wedding favor companies are actually selling them now, so you can get packs of them in a variety of different styles and colors. They’re useful to people even after the wedding is over, and the best part? They can serve double duty and also be used for seat placement holders.
Soap. Wedding favor companies and bath stores alike make beautiful soaps in many different shapes and colors. You can get a soap to go with almost any theme, and it’s something that everyone can use.
Bookmark. If you’re more literary or academic, you may want to consider giving a bookmark as a gift. You can have them customized or personalized just for you, or you can buy generic ones. If the idea of a simple cardboard bookmark is a turn-off, you can also buy really nice metal bookmarks.
Coasters. These unique gifts can be useful during your wedding and also after. During your wedding you can have them available for guests to use as regular coasters, or you can buy coasters that let you put a picture in them. You can either put in a picture or a thank you message from the bride and groom, or put the name and table number and use them as a place card. Then your guests can take them home and use them as coasters in their own home!
