Weddings are some of the most memorable days that we celebrate. For the bride and groom, it is the day that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
The guests, however, will experience more than one special day and it is only fitting that the wedding couple shows their thanks with a wedding favor gift. There are hundreds of ideas out there, but some are more memorable than others.
Going the edible route
Edible wedding favors are always a hit with the guests as they will leave something sweet for them to remember the day by. Depending on your budget and personality, there are a plethora of options that you can choose from.
Most people opt for something with a special message for their guests, but there are some alternatives as well. You could have a buffet of chocolate wedding favours or candy for that matter and the guests can go wild as they build a party pack of their favorite treats. This table can then also double up as the wedding dessert.
If you want your wedding guests to remember the day and talk about your wedding for years to come, you need to give them something they can use. Custom coffee mugs with a special message are a great gift that will get used long after the wedding.
If you want to make it extra special, you could transfer special photos onto the mugs for that extra special touch. Another great idea is to collect small picture frames and put a photo of you and the guests in the photo.
Everyone at the wedding will feel loved and special and know that they hold a spot in your heart. For those who are a bit more artistically inclined, you could also print out a pencil sketch of yourself and give each couple a clipboard of the wedding and some crayons to color the day as they experience it.
Mixing retro with modern
Depending on your era and generation, you could give your guests something truly personal and unique in the form of a mixtape or a media CD. There are not many things out there that give a glimpse into who you are as the music you listen to.
When you make a media CD, you could record a special message for each of your guests that are personal and reflects your gratitude and your love for the guests.
A recovery pack
Now we all know that weddings can get out of hand and that the morning after can be a hangover affair. As a gesture of foresight, you could also put together a morning-after recovery kit to get your guests back on their feet.
Weddings are there to be enjoyed and celebrated but when alcohol is involved, there are sure to be some regrets the following day. Your hangover kit will impress your guests and they will forever be in your debt.
Wedding favor gifts are supposed to be personal and reflect something of who you are and what you value. For the people out there who have green fingers, there is no better favor than a succulent plant or a windowsill herb garden starter kit.
The great thing about succulents is that they require next to no maintenance, but the herb garden is extra special. Over time, when these herbs start to grow, your guests will come to associate the special herb you gave them with your wedding. It is the perfect gift that keeps on giving.
