Bubbles topped the list as extremely useless, closely followed by potpourri, and matches. Wedding favors are traditional, and most times, expected, but how many favors have you thrown awayor regifted? How many
Don’t coordinate with the décor in your home, or office? Do you really need another votive candle? Do you really need to return the favor?
Glam Wedding Collection Edible Favors
Here is the litmus paper test we used when deciding on a favor:
1. Is it something that is useful? Personalized breath mints, bottles of wine or water, CDs with songs that are representative of our life together….can you see guests actually using these?
2. Would we want to receive it as a favor? If you wouldn’t want to get it, you probably shouldn’t give it.
3. Is it serving its purpose? The favor is a way to show guests your appreciation for joining you on your special day. If the favor isn’t doing that, it is rather pointless.
A trend that is quickly growing is nixing the favor all together. With more couples paying for their weddings on their own, some wedding standards are becoming optional. Photo booths, candy stations and additional desserts in cute take-away boxes are replacing votive candles, bubbles, potpourri and matches. To favor, or not to favor? If you favor, what to favor? This is one of the many decision points when planning a wedding. Keep in mind, your guests came to celebrate your new lives together, not for a gift. So do yourself a favor, keep your favors simple, useful, and meaningful.
