One small way to make sure that guests remember how special your wedding was is to make sure that there are special gifts for guest to take home with them. With today’s interest in personalized weddings, make sure that whatever mementos you select carry your names and wedding date.
For a spring wedding consider packets of flower seeds in glassine
envelopes with a message from you both that talks about growth and love.
Ordinary mints can be transformed into special packets when
wrapped in tulle and tied with ribbons matching your color scheme. Attach a message of thanks to each packet.
Keep the ribbon ends long and place bunches of the packets in baskets for the guests to take come with them as they leave the reception.
If tulle isn’t your thing, pack sugared almonds or mints or chocolates into small boxes. Personalize each box with a foil sticker bearing your names and wedding date and note of thanks.
More and more couples are creating CDs of their favorite music and providing them for guests to take as they leave the reception. I know this is something I would really like to receive as a guest!
If you are planning a photo booth at the reception, provide a small frame for each guest to use to take their photo home.
Some couples prefer a dessert station to a formal wedding cake and instead provide each guest with a tiny individual cake – boxed and ready for each of them to take home.
If yours is a destination wedding, an appropriate favor might be a luggage tag. An outdoor wedding
may call for a small potted pine tree or a succulent plant depending on your location.
Whatever you choose, take this opportunity to share your joy and thanks with those friends and relatives who have come together to help you celebrate your new life together. For more ideas, check out our boards at www.pinterest.com/thebridesshoppe You’re sure to find lots of inspiration!
