wedding favor basics

Wedding favors are a great way to show your guests how much you appreciate their support. And though it may feel like the smallest detail of your wedding, there are still several factors to keep in mind when selecting your favors. First, consider the cost. Wedding favors can run you anywhere from $1 per guest to upwards of $10 per guest, so use your budget and wedding style to determine what's best for you. To cut costs, consider DIY wedding favors or buying wedding favors in bulk and packaging them yourself. Edible wedding favors, like cookies, truffles, or locally jarred preserves, can also be cost-effective choices. (Hint: An edible wedding favor can also be a good choice for destination weddings, especially since your guests might not have extra room in their suitcases for gifts.) Second, keep in mind that presentation is everything. You can instantly dress up simple favors with pretty boxes tied with colorful ribbon, miniature clay pots wrapped up in cellophane, or with small clear bags sealed with monogrammed stickers. Even the most inexpensive gift will seem instantly more appealing in the right packaging. Finally, come up with the perfect way to pass out your presents. Set up a display by the door for guests to snag a favor on their way out, or make your wedding favors pull double duty as place cards by attaching a card with each guest's name. Still not sure what to give? Check out one of these local wedding vendors who specialize in favors to get plenty of great ideas.
