The Favor Dilemma

17 Oct

If you’re in the middle of planning your wedding, you’ve probably given a little thought to favors…”Will we do favors? Will we skip them? Is it just a silly tradition, a waste of money”, yadda yadda yadda. Especially for larger weddings, favors can seem like an insurmountable task – finding a way to thank each guest with something that they’ll appreciate and that won’t break your budget.

There are some great options for favors that won’t drive you crazy or put you over budget. If you forgo the traditional favor for each guest, a nice option is to give the money that you would have spent to a charity. A sign on each table can state this and encourage guests to give to the charity that is close to your heart, too.

Double Time

Favors can serve double-duty with escort cards. This is a creative way to kill two birds with one stone – making your life easier! These small succulents in clear jars are adorable.

And, this gumball and pencil jar combination is a super easy (and inexpensive) way to add a fun edge to the reception. Snag these at back-to-school sales in the late summer.

Something heart-felt is always the best, whether it’s more or less money doesn’t really matter to guests. It’s an expression of who you are and a thank you to everyone who comes to celebrate with you.
