Helpful Tips & Ideas For Wedding Favors

Helpful Tips & Ideas For Wedding Favors

By: Ideas For Wedding Favors

Since we were little girls, all of us dream of having a fairy tale wedding. We used to imagine what kind of gown we would want to wear at our wedding, what kind of theme we would want to have and many other things. When the day is actually coming closer, there are so many details to take care of and it could sometimes become rather overwhelming. Choosing where to hold the reception, shopping for the wedding gown, thinking about decorations and arranging food for the guests are just a few of many items that come along with this celebration of love. And of course, all of us want to make our wedding the most memorable wedding for ourselves, families, as well as for the rest of the guests.

Giving out wedding favors as a display of true appreciation is a long standing tradition. Everything that is seen at the wedding: from the reception place to the menu, will be certainly enjoyed on this special day. However, it is the wedding favor that will make the wedding to be remembered for a long time. So picking out the right party favor is extremely important. But with a great number of options out there for these little tokens of love and appreciation, sometimes, it could cost a tremendous amount of time to decide which one to choose.

So, where do we start on deciding which wedding keepsake to choose? Here are some pointers to help us decide the right favors for our guests. By determining the theme and personality of the wedding beforehand, picking the appropriate wedding favors should be as easy as an ABC.

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers! What is something that is most remembered about the wedding besides the brides’ gown and the food? Of course, flower arrangements – since they primarily define the theme of the wedding – Remember that different flowers represent various meanings of love. By choosing something like charming calla lilly bouquet candles, calla lily photo frames or even calla Lilly design napkin holders as a favor can accent the symbols of beauty and exquisiteness of the wedding. A traditional yet timeless long stem rose crystal can enhance the elegance and romance of the magnificent wedding. Or if we want to intensify passion and exoticism, orchids gel candles or scented orchid-shape soap will be one of the most appropriate favors to share this special moment of your life. If we are one of the practical types, we may want to start our wedding favors selection by thinking about practical items such as key chains, coasters, CD cases and many more. One good thing about choosing practical wedding favors is that the guests will be using them often, and thus, our wedding will be remembered every time they use the favors we handed out. But some of us may think that practical items may not be as lovely as other decorative favors. We could, for sure, scratch that idea since there are so many items with sophistication and perfection. Who can deny a cute sandal shaped notepad that can go with a beach theme or even a chic jewelry pouch; not to mention a sweet pair of silver pear shaped salt and pepper shaker that could definitely leave our guests in awe.

But wait. There are more to come. Some of us even want to go beyond the most common favors simply because we want to add more fun and attitude to the splendor of this ceremony. For instance, those who have passion for western theme could choose a shooter charm that enriches a personal touch of entertainment. Or perhaps choosing a unique ethnic theme such as a coaster painted with the word "love" in Chinese or Spanish will make the favors more exclusive and meaningful.

In short, most of us may think that choosing an affordable wedding favor can be time consuming. But it does not have to be that much work once we have some tips on where to start. Always remember that it is the company of friends and family that make a wedding memorable. Rewarding those who come to share your special day with a thoughtful favor gift is a wonderful way to show your appreciation.

Your wedding is the most important party of your life, full of your nearest and dearest, and the only day at which you are truly king and queen for the day! So a wedding reception takes a great deal of thought.

There is no doubt that your wedding day has got to be the most perfect day of your life – from the most beautiful invite, to the most breathtaking venue, from the fairytale dress to the stunning lights and flowers, from amazing favors and fireworks, to utterly delicious food and drink, champagne and chocolate…

Your wedding is the most important party of your life, full of your nearest and dearest, and the only day at which you are truly king and queen for the day! So a wedding reception takes a great deal of thought. It is, after all, a real reflection of you – do you want something low key and relaxed for example, with hay bales to sit on and a BBQ to eat? Or do you want a formal banquet with a set five course wedding menu and twinkling chandeliers hanging from a designer marquee? Whatever you are trying to achieve with your wedding catering, it helps to be absolutely sure what your vision is first.

When it comes to wedding food at your wedding reception - there are a thousand ways to do it – from fish and chips followed by an ice cream van, to a Bollywood themed Indian buffet. Any whatever way you choose, great food means happy guests, and an even more memorable day.

Paying a wedding caterer to look after the menu and food at the wedding reception is the answer for many couples. And there are a huge number of catering companies specializing in wedding receptions in the UK, and when choosing a wedding reception caterer – such as Absolute Taste, "rhubarb" or Alison Price - it is very important to establish a few things straight a way. Can they work within your budget? Can they travel to where you want them to be? And would they be able to provide all the drinks too, and research possible venues?

Once you have found your wedding reception caterer it is very important to focus on the wedding menu very early on. Get your wedding caterer to suggest ideas. Talk about what suits you as a couple, and get advice on what is right for the wedding venue, the overall occasion and for your guests. And don't forget your wedding cake either – a wedding reception isn't a wedding reception without a stunning cake!

Wedding reception caterers can vary hugely in price and in product. Low key weddings may benefit from smaller, more relaxed (and likely cheaper) wedding caterers. But if budget is no issue, then nothing is impossible, and you can find luxury wedding companies who will provide ice bars laden with the finest caviar and the most superb cocktail barman serving freshly mixed martinis to your guests until the early hours.

And a wedding reception is not just about the food either of course – you also have to think about wedding reception theming, lighting, staff uniform, table centerpieces and of course what about dancing and photography? With each and every supplier remember to look for testimonials that might give you a steer on whether they really know what they are doing.

The main thing about wedding caterers is getting them to work well for you – don't feel you can't ask for a bespoke wedding menu for example. If the company's wedding menus don't offer what you are looking for, always ask if they can create one just for you. Any good kitchen and event team should be able to tailor what they do to your exact requirements, and if they don't – then you should be looking elsewhere!

As far as the chosen menu is concerned, if the produce is excellently sourced and superbly cooked, even steak and chips can be perfect for a wedding meal! As a rule, try to stick with what is seasonal. Popular choices still tend to be chicken, lamb, beef and salmon. They're generally well liked and, if your wedding reception caterers are any good, they don't have to be boring either.

And of course staff are crucial too. Smiling, happy and helpful waitresses are so much better on a glorious wedding day than grumpy serving staff who just wish they were somewhere else!

Finally, if the budget isn't quite tallying up, then remember that good wedding caterers should be able to suggest great ideas and clever ways of doing things within budget. If you want to save money, consider serving substantial canap├ęs or bowl food instead of a starter for example, or a very luxurious chocolate wedding cake as your pudding.

Overall, the best wedding reception caterers are those who specialize in making a dream day a total reality, while you just sit back and enjoy the magic!
