Recall the most beautiful wedding you’ve ever attended. The day was perfect from the bride’s exquisite dress, to the romantic venue, to the artfully-rehearsed first dance. But what made that wedding stand out, a day you’ve remembered for years? It was the details , of course – the little things that made all the difference. The distinctive subtleties designed to make each guest feel appreciated – from the thoughtful, themed table décor to the engaging place cards holders, to the personable favors handed out at the end of the night.
Wedding favors are a high-impact, low-cost way to make a dramatic impression on your guests. These days, most wedding guests expect to receive some sort of favor, whether large or small, expensive or affordable. The point is, it’s a tangible memento to remind them of your special day beyond the wedding festivities. It’s up to you to put your own personal mark on these favors and tie into your overall theme or color scheme. Here are a few ideas using favors to enhance your overall celebration.
Place Card Holders
Place card holders are growing in popularity and are typically the most affordable favor. Guests can use place card holders as a unique photo holder after the wedding. Use place card holders such as Kate Aspen’s “Evergreen” Window Planter Place Card Holder to point guests to their tables, meanwhile adding a charming, verdant aesthetic. These place card holders work with a variety of themes but look especially beautiful in a summery, casual setting.
The right favor can embellish your event, adding a subtle complement to your wedding theme or color scheme. Favors such as tealight holders, coasters, and photo frames make wonderful gifts and enhance your tables’ décor. Kate Aspen’s “Golden Renaissance” Glass Tealight Holder looks pretty in its gift-ready packaging and is a beautiful, yet practical memento for your guests.
A Personalized Thank You Favor
More and more, couples are putting their own special mark on favors as a way to personally thank guests for participating in their special day. Darling little jars filled with honey, jam, or candy are the latest favor sensation. Kate Aspen’s “Spread the Love” Personalized Strawberry Jam is quite fetching and guests simply can’t stop talking about this sweet send-off.
Whether practical or whimsical, affordable or extravagant, you must not forget about favors! It’s the little details, the subtle touches that help to create an extraordinary, memorable wedding day.
