They’ve cancelled their plans, probably traveled from far and have taken the time to be at your special day. After the sacrifices made by your nearest and dearest to attend your wedding, why not give them fabulous thank you gifts? It’s nice for them to know you appreciate their time and dedication given to accompany you on your special day, and we’re sure they will be so grateful if you take a little time and effort in return to say thank you in a very special way.
After all of your wedding planning, the stress, the sleepless nights, the anxiety you faced for getting everything ready on time… your wedding day is finally here! This moment deserves a fantastic celebration, especially when you have reunited all of the special people that have impacted on your life. Friends and family deserve a good thank you gesture (wedding favor), and what better way to do this than by giving them something they will never forget.
Wedding favors have been popular for years, and now it’s no longer just the couple that are stars of the show, the guests are also extremely important for their love, support and years of friendship. Precisely why, before they leave, surprise them with something special. A very popular idea at this time of year are mini pot plants. This is such a lovely personal touch, as once planted and they watch the plant grow, they will forever be reminded of your wedding day.
If your guests are a bunch of foodies, your thank yous can also be said via sweet treats and a variety of delicious desserts. Popcorn, without doubt is the perfect favor if you’re having a movie themed wedding. You could fill like packets with different flavors, different stickers and names, tied with pretty ribbons. Or how about little jars of home made jelly in all different flavors, strawberry, cranberry or blueberry.
If your guests are super cool and trendy, as thank you gifts you could include sunglasses or parasols. Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding. If you’re more musically inclined why not create personalized CD’s with your wedding songs, or specific songs you’ve shared with certain guests. This CD will create beautiful memories for your guests in years to come.
Are you having a rustic or DIY themed wedding? Hand made organic soaps or little sachets of lavender are ideal. How about vintage keys that act as escort cards as well as keepsakes of your special day. Beautiful touches that just need a little thought needn’t be expensive. Your guests will appreciate a small token and the more personalized to you the better and more special they’ll be.Photo credits: Photogen Inc, Branco Prata, Daniel Usenko Photography, Katy Gray, Christina Diane Weddings, Ulmer Studio, Occasions Online
