Wedding favors should not be an afterthought. These little items are a personal thank you from the happy couple to their guests for attending their special day. So Many times, the main thing that is remembered by your guests is the favor they received. And why wouldn’t they? They bring it home and if it’s reusable, something they will look at for months or ever years to come. No matter if you have a wedding where you were brought up or you are having a destination wedding and looking for wedding location help, don’t forget the significance of this little item.
For hundreds of years, these wedding favors which are also thank you items have been an vital part of showers and weddings. About a couple of centuries ago, the success of a wedding depended on what the guests felt about their wedding favor. In fact, there is still an old wife’s tale that says; if your guests love what the couple gives them, then they will have a blissful marriage.
Planning a wedding can truly be a very upsetting experience. Sometimes, in the middle of the wedding plans, the stress can cause couples to even break up and call off the wedding. With all that anxiety and frustration, who would have the time to think about the final item on your wedding list; the infamous wedding favor. And when your wedding is at a totally different location, you then have to worry about the wedding favor matching your destination location.
These wedding favors which are typically small items can be easily overlooked or pushed into the background; putting buying them off until the very end. Considering, with the reception, gown, band, flowers, photographer and so many more responsibilities to take care of, why would we spend time on this tiny gift for our guests?
It’s very easy to find an amazing favor without putting in much effort. As you are traveling to wedding boutiques for a wedding gown or to pick out your flowers or whatever, just keep this small item on the back of your mind. As you are deciding on more important features of your wedding, you may stumble across the perfect gift for your guests. More than likely, if you discover it this way, it will blend into the theme of your wedding and become a beautiful addition that your guests will cherish for a long time. And if you are looking for a unusual location for your wedding, making sure you have the perfect thank you for your friends and family that traveled, is doubly important.
Of course, we agree that this is not as important as other essentials on your wedding planning list, but as already said, don’t overlook it. That would be like neglecting your guests and what they thing about your wedding. So put it in its exact place but always keep in the back of your mind that it is the highlight of your guest’s table and what they reach for the second they sit down and talk about during the entire wedding with the other guests.
