I have to be honest. I’m a little torn on the whole wedding favor thing.
As a guest, one side of me says “Yay! I love getting little presents!” while the other side says, “If I get one more candle with names and a wedding date on it, I’m gonna scream.” The thought behind wedding favors totally makes sense, but do you want them or not?
Some couples are opting to not have favors at all.
That is totally ok!! Rather than spending a portion of their wedding budget on favors, couples are instead choosing to enhance the wedding experience for their guests. Extending the time the bar is open, providing a photo booth or other fun interactive activities, or having an upscale dining experience will delight your guests as much as (or even more than) getting a favor.
On the other hand, favors are a fun little treat to show guests that you are glad they came to celebrate with you. The trick is to make your favors special or useful. Forget about personalized and focus on personal! Here are a few fun and practical favor ideas that any guest would be happy to have!
