Wedding Favors 101 – How to Find the Best of the Best


As every bride-to-be (and her fiancé) knows, planning a wedding can be one of life’s greater challenges. But it should also be satisfying and memorable for all the right reasons. A successful wedding starts with planning every detail. Not just the dress, venue, flowers, cake and reception food, but the favors — the memento of your special day.

The best wedding favors express gratitude to your guests for attending your ceremony and sharing in the celebration. This isn’t a minor gesture. Your guests might have traveled a great distance, taken time off from work, rearranged their schedules and even pitched in to help you pull off your special day. Favors are generally a small token of your appreciation, though they can range from simple to more extravagant keepsakes.

Whatever type of wedding favor you are considering, finding the perfect one doesn’t need to be difficult. Online sellers offer an easy way to search for all types of favors and to buy in quantities not available in retail stores. But shop wisely. While many businesses and their products might appear to be similar, a closer look reveals significant differences.

It’s smart to stay on your wedding budget. Yet high quality, not price alone, should drive your decision. Look also for businesses that feature a wide selection of classic favorites as well as fresh ideas. A strong record of experience and customer satisfaction is essential. HansonEllis is a 10-year-old online company that meets those minimum requirements, and then takes it up a notch by offering custom, affordable products that can be personalized for unique and unforgettable mementoes.

Your search for the best wedding favors should include not only products widely available in the U.S. – the typical candies, candles and bubbles — but specialty items from around the world. HansonEllis continually searches the globe for new and inspiring favors that will give your wedding a memorable touch.

Show style by choosing favors that match the theme of your wedding, whether it is a ceremony in a garden, on the beach or at a destination, or a theme tied to certain colors, flowers or seasons. And consider adding a personal touch with favors that can be inscribed with your names, the wedding date and/or a message. Or use imprinted ribbons or tags.

Finding the perfect favors is only part of the process. You need a company that will deliver on time and that can accommodate changes, such as when your invitation grows at the last minute to accommodate long-lost cousins or your parents’ business associates. You also want a company that recognizes your wedding day as your once-in-a-lifetime event and that doesn’t treat you as just another customer.

In other words, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. HansonEllis, which has helped thousands of brides and grooms, prides itself on meeting customer needs. The company’s innovative products have been featured on NBC’s Today Show and in such magazines as Bride’s and Destination Weddings and Honeymoons.

You have enough to do with planning the rest of your wedding than to fret about favors. Decide what you want, then choose the best company to help everything turn out just right. As HansonEllis says, “We translate your dream event into a reality.”
