Weddings – big or small – are just big, fun parties. The celebration of love brings together family and friends to witness the start of a budding journey amidst amazing eats, bubbly sips and electric slides, with photographs taken to capture the moments words cannot do justice to. Once the vows have been said, the lovebirds have taken center stage for their first dance, the cake has been cut and everyone is worn out from all the festivities, all they have left to remember the fairytale affair wasn’t all a dream are the wedding party favors, so they require quite a bit of thought. They do not need to be very expensive though.Some party favors run as low as $3 per gift. Many brides have taken to DIY wedding favors, purchasing favor kits and using the activity time to bond with the bridal party.
The great thing about wedding favors is they can be almost anything! The goal is to somewhat match the theme and tone of your wedding and to give something that your guests will love and remember your wedding for. That being said, your wedding favors can be classic and modern for black-tie style weddings, classic for traditional weddings or practical, modern, fun and silly for more casual affairs.
