Read on and see how other Brides have personalized for their partygoers in THE VAULT!
Put Your Stamp on It
Personalizing wedding favors is a breeze these days with how simple and easy it is to create personalized labels that you can put just about anywhere. What will make it truly special and meaningful though is not just putting your names and wedding date on the label, but creating something that represents both your wedding and yourselves as a couple through icons, photos, colors, sayings, or quotes. Take it to the next level by using your label design on welcome bags, napkins, programs, even dance floor spotlights — the sky’s the limit!
Social (Media) Butterfly
In today’s Facebook-loving, Instagram-obsessed world, personalize your favors with your own wedding hashtag and get trending! It’s a great way to remind guests to use your hashtag both during and after the wedding when they’re going through all their great pics from your special day.
Represent Your Joint Passions
There are so many favors to choose from it can be difficult to decide. However, if you have something you love to do together, why not choose a favor that represents your joint interests. For instance, if you both love wine tasting, give guests picture frames made of cork. Met while visiting Paris? Eiffel Tower key chains would do nicely. If you love the outdoors, give personalized bags of trail mix for that pre-wedding hike.
Variety is the Spice of Life
You don’t have to limit yourself to just one type of favor. Couples will love getting one of each at the end of the wedding! If you go this route, instead of one favor that represents you as a couple, you can gift one that represents you and the other your groom. For instance, personalized playing cards for your poker-loving man paired with a monogrammed chocolate bar for your sweet tooth. Or you can create a favors table with a all different parting gifts, and let your guests choose their own memento to remember your special day!
Celebrate Your Craftiness
If you are having a small wedding or are up for a challenge, gift guests something you made yourself by baking sweets, making jam, or simply creating lavender sachets. Package them in beautiful jars, boxes or muslin bags stamped with your initials.
It’s All about the Journey
If you are having a destination wedding, met while working abroad, or just love to travel, give guests favors that represent your wanderlust with personalized luggage tags (they can double as seating cards!), passport covers, map-themed favors, or an item that represents your wedding destination.
Embrace the Season
Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall — it’s always wedding season! Represent the world around you by giving favors indicative of the weather. Winter weddings are the perfect time to give out hot cocoa packets in personalized mugs. Spring weddings are all about new beginnings, so give personalized seed packets. Summer is a time to have fun in the sun, and guests will appreciate personalized sunblock or sunglasses to use during your outdoor ceremony. Fall is a time of harvest, so give guests a sweet jar of honey with a monogrammed label.
Location, Location, Location
Personalize your favors by matching them to your wedding venue. If you are getting married in a barn, perhaps gift treats in a personalized burlap favor bag or give out lucky horseshoes. For a mountain-top wedding, antler bottle stoppers or bottle openers will do the trick! Taking a boat ride for your reception? Nautical favors such as anchor photo holders will remind guests of your blissful sunset cruise.
