Having wedding favors is not an obligatory task for your wedding day. However, they are a sweet way to add a custom touch to the celebration. If you think your budget does not allow it, keep in mind there are plenty of cheap alternatives and it is a great way to thank your wedding guests for celebrating you.
But how and what you pick as a wedding favor.
First and foremost, you can pick something that is reflective of you as a couple or a fun element that ties into your wedding theme, destination or decor.
To help you find a wedding favor that will undoubtedly delight your guests, consider usefulness, budget, and uniqueness.
If you ask us, going local it’s the best decision. Local or themed favors are also a fun way to incorporate the location where you’re getting married. We encourage couples to consider a favor that ties with the location of the wedding and the local products. For example, in Greece, a small bottle of olive oil or ouzo would be a great idea.Don’t hesitate to personalize your wedding favors in order to create a unique gift/souvenir for your guests. You can use your wedding logo or even a photo of you as a couple. If you don’t have a large number of wedding guests you can also personalize your wedding favors for each one separately.
You can also collaborate with a non governmental organization in order to create wedding favors at a low budget and offer a purpose.
Other ideas may consist of colorful candy, scented candles or local spices.
