Wedding Favors, a
Special Thank You for your Guests
are as unique and varied as the couples whose marriage they
commemorate. From shot glasses to chocolate roses, coasters to
napkin holders, the bride to be has literally hundreds of ideas
to choose from.
Wedding favors have been a part of traditional wedding ceremonies dating
back to the 16th century. The newlywed couple presents a gift to
their guests as gestures of gratitude for having attended their
wedding and participating in the couple's new life together.
The wedding favor may vary according to culture, wealth, the interest of the
couple, or can be centered on the theme of the wedding. The
ideas for a wedding favor are limitless. A bottle of vintage
wine with a personalized label is a nice wedding favor for those
couples with a large budget, or a simply made personalized
candle is a nice gift.
My parents showed me a unique wedding favor they received at my cousin's
wedding. The bride and groom had taken the time to have the
music at their ceremony recorded on compact disk, and the guests
were all given one as a keepsake. All they needed to do to
re-live that special day is to pop in the disk and press play.
Whether you choose to record a compact disk of your ceremony, or seed
packets, or chocolate roses, your unique wedding favor will help
those who love you remember your wedding day. A unique wedding
favor is a special thank you gift that will bring warmth, love,
and joy to your friends and family for years to come.
