How to Present Your Wedding Favors


In the world of gift-giving, presenting the gift is an important consideration for both the giver and the receiver. For the giver, the time, the effort, the thought, and the resources in presenting the gift are what’s involved, and for the receiver, the beauty and the excitement and the ‘guessing game’ as to what’s inside is important.

In giving wedding favors, how it is packed and how it is presented to the guests is important as this is generally a sign of the appreciation of the couple for the time and warm wishes of the guests. There are different ways of presenting wedding favors to guests, while they have the same goal of thanking the guests and give a small remembrance for the event, here are different ‘styles’ you can choose from.

– During the photo op session, one of your bridesmaids can hand it to the guests as they leave the photo op area. After their photo, and before going back to their table, have a bridesmaid hand it to them as they exit.

– You can also dedicate a separate table where the favors are laid out nicely. Make sure you have enough space in your reception venue so the table will not be bumped accidentally, something you may want to avoid especially if you have crystal favors.

– Wedding favors can make for a great place setting. If you have already identified the guests who will be receiving them, you can use them as place setting or table cards. For this to work, also ensure that the color of your wedding favor will match with that of the table setting.

– There is nothing lovelier than a cute flower girl handing the wedding favors. It will be an adorable treat as the guests receive their favors from the basket of the flower girl. Give her a decorated basket with the favors, with the weight just enough for her to carry around. To make this work, make sure that the flower girl’s mom or a bridesmaid is assisting her.

– If you can hand the favors personally to the guest as they leave, then that’s a very personalized option as well. As the guests will definitely seek you out as they leave, some brides prefer handing it directly to them. Have someone assist you in retrieving the favors from a central location or table as you hand it to them.

Choose a way of presenting your gifts as you consider all the logistical concerns in your wedding reception. If you choose the ones which will require extra table settings or extra decorations on your table, make sure your venue and table requirements will allow for it. If you will have people or you yourself give them, make sure that it will be a part of the program where you or your flower will be assisted.

Giving away the wedding favors would fall on the last part of the reception, so make sure that this ending will cap off the wedding on a good note.
