Wedding Planning Tips: Selecting a Favor
As you plan your wedding, and you come to the final details on your “to-do” list, you’re sure to find wedding favors listed there. Favors are a small gift given by the bride and groom, to their guests, to show appreciation for being a part of their special day. A clever idea is to find some that will fit with the overall theme of your wedding. If you are like most brides, you have spent a lot of time carefully coordinating all of the details to fit with the overall theme of your big day — and your wedding favors can certainly be part of that too.
Perhaps your wedding doesn’t have a specific theme but it does reflect the season in which your event takes place. If you are having a spring or summer wedding, you might like to give your guests a beautiful fan that they can use if they get a little warm during your event. Also, favors that include a floral design, vibrant colors, butterflies, spring and summer treats such as a lemonade packet, and more can be the perfect pairing for your theme. Fall weddings may include favors that echo the warm, coziness of the season and winter weddings may have favors that incorporate glittering snowflakes, cocoa packets, and the icy cool colors of the season.
