What is a Favour?
Wedding Favours are gifts given out on special occasions as a token of appreciation to the guests.
They are symbolic gifts that hold a special significance for the bride or groom.
Centuries ago favours or bomboniere as they are also known, were given out to symbolise health, wealth, happiness, fertility and long life. It simply consisted of 5 sugared almonds which were placed in a piece of tulle and wrapped with ribbon.
Favours can be made up in many ways using several different ingredients and there are a wide variety of unusual favours available.
Today it comes as no surprise that in most cultures across the world, fabulous favours have taken on a whole new meaning and have become very customary to commemorate special celebrations.
How to choose a favour?
Before you purchase wedding favors you have to have a general idea what kinds of favors you want to buy for your guests. Consideration should be given to budget limitations and the tastes of your guests.
Wedding favors are given to guests to serve as a reminder of the special occasion years after the wedding has ended. You should take the time to choose the wedding favors your guests will love.
There are many different kinds of wedding favors to choose from and you should consider your guests general tastes when selecting something you think they will appreciate.
Avoid selecting favors that are inappropriate. Another thing to consider is that you are selecting a uniform gift for a group of people and not for individuals.
You want to pick something that pleases everyone. You can get two different gifts, one for male guests and one for female guests but the gifts for each guest should be the same. Your objective is to put yourself in your guest’s shoes and ask yourself what kind of wedding favor you would like to receive.
A wedding favor is a reminder that your guests will use to remember your special day long after it is over, so some care and thought should go into planning what you want to give.
It is a good idea to provide a wedding favor just for children to keep them occupied because children can be disruptive. Some crayons and a coloring book or a miniature puzzle should be sufficient. Bubbles are traditional for weddings and kids love them. We put the children’s wedding favors in boxes made especially for kids that match your theme yet it is exciting for the kids to have their own personlised favours.
Take your time when selecting wedding favors. This is your day and you should choose the wedding favors that you want to give. Don’t let anyone pressure you into making a decision. You should also make sure that you select favors that you and your spouse both agree on. Take your time and don’t rush.
Once you have decided what kinds of wedding favors you want to buy and how much you want to pay for them you can begin shopping. The best place to shop for wedding favors is on the internet. There are several web stores that sell wedding favors and also will grant custom orders.
When you do place your order you should place it well in advance of the reception. Suppliers are busy most of the time and by placing your order early you will ensure that it arrives before you need it. It is better to be too early than too late.
A wedding favor is a small but important part of your wedding and if you invest some time and effort into obtaining what you want, you and your guests will be pleased with the results.
