Handmade Packaging Suggestions For Wedding Favors


Wedding favors are an important part of any wedding, although they are usually not the top thing on a couple’s minds. Wedding favors are how you say thank you to your guests immediately after the wedding.

Preparing your wedding favors will entail a lot of time in terms of sourcing the supplier, choosing your wedding favor item, and taking time to package them if you choose to package them personally. Here are some things that you have to consider when making your own handmade packaging:

– Type of packaging: Box or bags? – You might be all too familiar with gift wrappings from when you made gift boxes or gift bags in the past. The same process follows for wedding favors but since you will be making them in large quantities, determine your packaging requirements before finalizing your order for wedding favors. You use paper bags or plastic bags and this should depend on the favor. A paper bag may be inappropriate for some favors such as paperweights or bottle opener as they may be too heavy or sharp pointed that it may cut through the bag and just fall off. Making box favors is also easy as there are patterns available to make different box shapes for as packaging.

– Durability of packaging – Ensure that you can make your packaging as durable as possible whether with the use of glue, staple wires or ribbons to tie edges and support the weight of the favor inside. Do not hasten making the packaging as it may eventually be of no use if the packaging cannot protect or present the favors in a good way.

– Your schedule – Check if you have ample time to make the packaging. If you run short of time, you might end up with two types of packaging – ones that are homemade, and ones that you bought. With this, your favor packaging may not look uniform and it may seem pretty obvious as well that you didn’t have enough time to finish or complete them.

– Favor labels – Complete your handmade packaging by placing personally made favors as well. You can use sticker labels and prepare the print that you will place in them, whether all text or if space permits, you can place your photo as well. If space will allow, you can even print a nice love or wedding poem on the label.

– Color – Purchase materials that are in the same shade as your color motif or a shade that will complement your main wedding favor. Choosing the right color can truly enhance the presentation of your wedding favors.

Packaging your wedding favors can make them look special and unique, especially if you have personally designed the packaging. Your wedding favors will truly speak of your style and preference, and most of all, the special attention that you have placed to make them unique. Your wedding favors will be the ultimate thank you note that along with the message of thanks, your guests will truly be excited to receive.
