Wedding Favors Add a Special Touch

A wedding is the celebration of two lives uniting for eternity. It has always been this way and will always be this way. Guests are invited to share joy in the occasion and also to bear witness to the union. There is something special about standing before those dear to your heart and making a lifelong commitment for all to hear. This is what truly unites two people as a married couple.

Wedding favors are used to show that the bride and groom appreciate each guest. A small token of thanks given for people that have taken time out of their schedules, given help, gifts, traveled, or done any number of other things to help ensure that the wedding day was special for the bride and groom.

Favors are given to each guest attending the reception. They are generally inexpensive gifts, costing between $10.00 and $20.00 a piece. More expensive favors are available and there are weddings where a higher-priced favor may be appropriate. Wedding favors are available in nearly every category one could imagine, from sterling picture frames, personalized chocolates, and even bath soaps.

Selecting wedding favors is not difficult. It is not necessary to purchase these far in advance of the wedding date. Many are readily available online and at retail outlets that specialize in parties or wedding accessories. Remember that the last days before the wedding are hectic, so purchase them a couple months before the wedding to allow ample time for personalization or special ordering (wedding planning timeline). Once they are purchased, the only concern is getting them to the reception location.

Wedding favors can easily be found online. Consult the wedding budget to find a price range to focus on and then think about what makes this union unique. Think about shared hobbies or themes and look for a favor to complement those ideas. Place card holders and table decorations can also be given as favors just be certain to have a place to write the name and table number of the guest. For those that have the time wedding favors can easily be made and often provide the most unique favors of all.
