Wedding Favors that Speak You

Wedding favors are the small thank-you gifts to show your appreciation for your guests attending your wedding.  Family and friends take these wedding favors home with them along with the joyful memory of the wonderful time that they had at your wedding. If chosen thoughtfully, wedding favors add sophisticated finishing touches and can earn you many praises from your guests. Even if you say you could care less about what your guests think, believe me, you want to care.  I have been to enough weddings to say that every single detail of your wedding would be scrutinized by somebody, especially extended families. You’d want to represent both yours and his family well on this important day that marks the joining of two families. So pick a wedding favor that is congruent to your theme but more importantly, it should speak who you are as a couple. Guests enjoy learning more about the newlyweds through small details of the wedding.
