If you're getting married, remember that thoughtful wedding favors can really set your special day apart. This detail is too often overlooked, but it is crucial to acknowledge the time and money your guests have invested in celebrating the start of your new life. Show your appreciation with a special gift that will always remind them of your wedding day.
"There's something extra memorable about any occasion (wedding, baby or bridal shower, birthday party) that sends you home with a special treat," says lifestyle magazine Real Simple.
Favors are often arranged as part of the place setting, allowing them to do double-duty by also adding to the decor. Alternatively, you can place your favors in a basket or on a table near the exit, so guests can take one as they leave.
Check out these unique favor ideas from StainlessLUX:
Candle: A lovely candle at each place setting signifies the enduring flame of your love and lights up any wedding reception.
Coaster: A beautiful, well-made coaster with an elegantly raised rim looks perfect next to each guest's plate. Have it engraved with the date of your special day.
Tray: Give each guest a pretty tray engraved with your initials.
