Meaningful and Personalized Wedding Favors


Every wedding is as personalized and unique as it can be. With so many aspects that can be custom-made specific to that wedding, each event can be special and memorable.

Wedding favors are the small tokens that guests bring home with them to recall the events during the day. To be able to do this, your wedding favor should have the details of your wedding.

Wedding favors come in many shapes, sizes, and designs. In fact, you can very easily get favors that are ready to give out with almost no work on your part in preparing them. However, if you want to truly impress your guests, take some time and effort to personalize your wedding favors. Here are some ways on how you can personalize your wedding favors and not make it look as if you just grabbed them from the shelf and handed them out.

– Ribbons – Specialty favor stores can personalize your ribbons by printing your wedding details on them. Typically, the couple’s names are printed and the wedding date. These ribbons are available in many colors as well so you can choose one that is the same as your color motif or one that is of the same shade. You can get bowing ribbons that can be tied into bows and attached on top of boxes, or you can get continuously printed ribbons that you can wrap around the entire package.

– Favor labels – You can put the details of your wedding in favor labels such as hang tags, mini cards or sticker labels. Hang tags are best used as accessories to favors that are placed in bottles and those in small bags, while mini cards and sticker labels are best for boxed favors or those that are presented by itself.

– Print – For favors such as coasters or cigarette lighters, you can personalize them by printing the details on the wedding favor itself. Bookmarks and thin magnets can also be printed directly from your computer printer.

– Etched or engraved – For crystal paperweights, photo frames, pens and other practical favors made of durable materials, you can have them engraved or etched with your names or just your initials – remember that this procedure can be quite costly.

– Hand-painted – For favors such as small pots or bookmarks, you can hand paint them for a truly personalized feel. If you have time, you can even hand paint other small ceramic items.

If your wedding favor has a prominently large area and if you will be placing favor labels on them, you can even place love quotes or wedding poems on them. A line or two from your favorite quote or a favorite love song can make a huge difference compared to other common wedding favors. This can serve as an inspiration and as a good parting thought with your guests.

Personalizing and making your wedding favor meaningful means giving your love to your guests even in the tiniest detail. With these types of favors, you are making your wedding memorable not just for the two of you but for each and every guest as well.
