So you’ve got your wedding theme nailed and everything is on point but what about your wedding favours? From the team at Personalised Favours, here are some tips to help you organise your heartfelt ‘thank you’ favours for your guests.
1. Stick to a theme
Couples often forget to match their favours to the style and theme of their wedding. If your style has a rustic or country vibe, then a favour that is wooden, brass, woven or organic would best compliment your wedding decor.
2. Get Personal
Personalising your wedding favours adds a point of difference and reflects your personality on your special day. Couples are opting to customise their favours with individual guest names and a special thank you message. A personalised gift will be treasured and remembered by your guests and serve as a special keepsake of your wedding day.
3. Practicality is key
Couples are always on the hunt for practical wedding favours. For example, if you are having a spring or summer wedding then a personalised flip flop bottle opener is not only practical but a lovely keepsake and season appropriate. Savvy couples who are looking to save money are choosing a wedding favour that also doubles as a place setting. A popular choice are engraved acrylic place cards which have a special thank you message and feature a magnet on the back so they can be kept on the fridge as a keepsake.
4. Plan Ahead
Favours are often the last thing on a bride’s mind and it is a task often left to the last minute. Many couples like to wait until they have all of their RSVP’s returned but this doesn’t leave much time for ordering, production and delivery of your gifts. Plan ahead and order enough to cover the guests you have invited. It is also wise to order a couple of spares for extra guests, ones that might go missing and even a keepsake for you and your husband.
