Congratulations, you two!
At this point, you’ve probably read quite a few articles and asked around about all the must-haves and must do’s when it comes to wedding planning.
One of the most essential aspects of it though are wedding favours. Now, they aren’t necessary or even required, and couples who are already on a tight budget may be inclined to skip this bit altogether.
But if you want to truly enhance the experience your guests take in as they walk up to the reception, we highly recommend hiring a wedding supplier to help you plan the right wedding favours according to your budget – something to show your appreciation to the guests who put their busy schedules aside to come to your wedding.
While it’s important to choose the right wedding vendor for wedding favours, it’s equally important to consider some of the following – tips that will help you ensure that your wedding favours are appreciated as you intended:
Talk it over with your wedding vendor so as to how you want the wedding favours to be distributed among your guests. Most couples place them strategically at guest tables as it’s an effective way of ensuring that everybody gets a piece.
It’s always a good idea to purchase at least 20% wedding favours above your guest count so that no one goes home empty-handed.
Wedding favours are actually an opportunity to get really creative, have better photo opportunities and make the event all the more memorable. For instance, you can present the wedding favours in an adorable display, which could create a rather interesting focal point for the wedding. Or, you could hand out the gifts and wedding favours when the guests are leaving – in which case, you’ll need to have someone oversee that each guest gets only their due share and not extras!
Your wedding vendor will help you devise the right strategy and stay in line with your budget, so you’ve got nothing to worry about.
Why not show a little extra consideration during this phase of your wedding planning and come up with unique wedding favours that you guest can actually put to use after the wedding?
While great-tasting luxury chocolate (that’s still affordable) or an assortment of candies can certainly make for a nice wedding favour, think out of the box to come up with ideas that can be easily personalised.
Candles, for example, will help them remember you long after the wedding is over and a cute little box of candles that they light up every time means that they will fondly think back to what a fantastic time they had at the wedding.
In fact, add an intimate note to each box of candles – scented candles at that, complete with a personalised matchbook to round it off.
