As we continue with your guide to finding the perfect wedding favor, we arrive at Step 2: Define Your Wedding Favor Personal Preferences. It seems like a simple question, but once you start exploring the world of top wedding favors, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. So we encourage you to take this big decision one baby step at a time…and this particular step we’re taking now gets you thinking about the kinds of wedding favors you prefer. Maybe you’ll be inspired by favorite wedding favors you received at other weddings, the ones that really wowed you and made a statement about the wedding couple. You’ll want your own wedding favors to be just as enjoyable, unique, and unforgettable.
Let’s get started with a few easy, basic questions to answer:
- What kind of favors do you want?
- What favors have captured your attention at weddings you’ve attended?
- Is it important to you that your favors be unique?
- Is it important to you that your favors be all-natural?
- Is it important to you that your favors be sourced locally?
Depending on your personal style and preferences, wedding favors can be many things. They can make a statement, show a side of you that only your closest friends know, or offer a glimpse of your future as a couple. They can be:
- Edible or not
- Useful or whimsical
- Fun or sophisticated
- Disposable or lasting keepsakes
- Custom designed or budget friendly
Remember, this is your day. You have a right to choose the wedding favors that are the best reflection of who you are as a couple.
Something else to consider is the men who will attend. Many wedding favors are distinctly feminine. Why not make sure your favors are of value to both men and women? The men in your life will appreciate you thinking of them, and edible favors may just be the perfect solution to pleasing all of your wedding guests, not to mention your bridal shower and rehearsal dinner guests as well.
