Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
Wedding favors are one of the most enjoyable parts of wedding planning. Many times, however, these small gifts end up being left behind, broken, or are simply underwhelming. On June 13, 2013, SunHerald.com published top tips for fabulous wedding favors, and Do the Bride a Favor is using this article as inspiration for their own top five tips for successful wedding favors.
1. Be Realistic
Brides that follow DIY websites will have unrealistic expectations concerning their favors. When searching for favor ideas, be practical about the time, materials, and skill level required. Creating party favors should be fun, not frustrating.
2. Go Edible
Edible favors are a simple, sure to please favor idea. Whether they are custom wedding chocolates or Sweet Tarts in a cute container, edible favors are always enjoyed by wedding guests.
3. Make it Useful
If edible favors aren’t an option, choosing something useful should be next. Take caution when choosing to personalize items, however, and look ahead to the future. Will wedding guests use items with the bridal couple’s initials on them five years down the road?
4. Be Obvious
Whether it’s making an announcement, handing favors out as guests leave, or having an ‘Enjoy!’ sign above the favor display, be sure to make the favors abundantly obvious. When brides put them on the table, many guests think they are part of the tablescape and leave them behind.
5. Plan More, Not Less
Always make more favors than there are guests. During transport and setup, favors can become misplaced or broken. Some guests may take more than one, or some may be damaged upon arrival. Always plan to have extra favors available.
Do the Bride a Favor gives tips on successful wedding favors, which include offering edible favors, avoiding useless items, and having a few extra handy.
