Inspired by the article “The Worst Wedding Favors to Give Your Guests”, Do the Bride a Favor today announced some different ideas for memorable favors.
There is perhaps nothing worse than receiving a poorly thought out gift. It's not always that the gift itself is bad, just a little common. Putting a little effort into gift giving, especially when it comes to a wedding, is always appreciated. Here are few ideas to hopefully break a few wedding clichés and inspire a little originality.
Avoid: Cliche Candy
“The problem with candies that you usually see at weddings is not so much the taste or look, but it's just how painfully ordinary it is,” Do the Bride a Favor stated. Candies like sugared almonds or sugared plums had its origins as gifts for guests in classic European weddings. While there is nothing wrong with tradition, sometimes it's good to cut ties with the past and get a little modern.
Go For: Personalized Candies and Sweets
It's no secret that personalized candy like custom bridal chocolates are a popular trend. It's possible to get the initials of the wedded couple on the outside of the candy itself or wrapper for a nice personal touch. The bride is attached to the “almond” idea, mixed bulk nuts has a little more variety.
This includes personalized glasses and clothing. The problem with these kind of gifts is that are easily forgotten and often rarely used later on. “Memorabilia can come off as gimicky like souvenirs. After all, many people don't use mugs with the couple's face on them when they drink their morning coffee,” Do the Bride a Favor said.
Go For: Convenient Gifts
Go for items that don't last for a long time after a wedding, or items that guests can still use a few months down the road. Flowers are a great idea. They can be kept alive in water for a while after the wedding. They can even be dried and kept if the guests would like. Other undervalued items that can be useful are small gifts like bookmarks, pens, and other personalized stationary items.
