The Shocking Truth Behind Wedding Favors

Let’s honestly ask ourselves, are wedding favors necessary? Do we really have to set aside money out of the wedding budget to buy some? Tricky questions, followed by even trickier answers.

These little goody bags, sweet treats, and keepsakes make for a great way to thank your guests for being a part of your big day. And though it might be an old tradition, couples are becoming more creative with their wedding favors. Shockingly, you might have some questions when it comes to wedding favors. So let’s dive right in, shall we?

Why are favors even necessary?

Now you’re free to form your own opinions, thoughts, stances, and platforms when it comes to this issue—but hear me out! Wedding favors are the last memory guests will have of your wedding. So you’ll want to leave them with something they can hold onto and think back to how much fun they had celebrating your big day with you.

But favors don’t have to mean expensive. When you choose to give your guests wedding favors, you can keep them as simple as you’d like—only thing that matters is the thought. Remember, it’s always the thought that counts. Personalized favors, whether it’s a carton of bubbles or a packet of forget-me-not flower seeds, go a long way in thanking your guests.

So, how much do I really have to spend?

Like all aspects of your wedding, the price really depends on you and your significant other’s budget. Now, you don’t want to spend a significant portion of your budget on wedding favors—so sit down and plan out what you can spend. But remember, the key is creativity and thoughtfulness. And keep in mind that you’ll want to keep extra favors on hand just in case a guest (or two) wants to take extra.

Should I give children wedding favors?

Another great question, and another one you’ll have to decide for yourself. You can certainly give children the same favor as you give an adult, or you can make something special for them. You could always give children a bag full of candy or cookies with a sweet message written on the outside. Or wrap up some bubblegum and bubbles to give them a special little thanks for attending your big day.

OK, I want wedding favors, but how do I give them out?

One of the best parts about wedding favors is seeing the appreciation for them on your guests’ faces. But you’re probably wondering, what’s the best way to give them out? A simple way to make sure that every guest has the opportunity to pick up a favor is by designating a table for them. You can decorate the table to match the overall theme of the wedding, and then set the favors on there. Or, if you’re wanting to make sure everyone gets one favor, you can place them at people’s seats so they can have them during the reception.

What’s the main takeaway from this shocking wedding favor truth?

The main point you should take away from this blog is that wedding favors don’t have to be extravagant. Each can be unique and special to the couple and their big day. Find something that speaks about your relationship, creativity, and thoughtfulness—and truly thank your guests for being apart of your day.
