Make Your Wedding Day Extra Special
by Presenting Unique Wedding Favours
A wedding is a special occasion where family
and friends gather to watch as a groom and his bride make an eternal commitment
to one another. The brides dress receives its final stitches, confections have
been added to the cake, and the air is abundant with well wishes. As a final
touch to their special day, many couples are extremely selective about the
unique wedding favours they present to their guests.
Wedding favours, no matter their uniqueness,
generally fall into one of three categories: keepsakes, usable and edible. A
stimulating way to give your guests a keepsake of your special day is to provide
them with individual cameras. Place decorative baskets or platters that match
the theme or colours of your wedding on each table in the reception hall.
Ensconce the baskets and platters with disposable cameras and encourage your
guests to take pictures throughout the reception.
Insist that the guests are free to take the
cameras home and have them developed. Taking pictures allows each guest to
capture your wedding through their own eyes. To add an extra measure to your
wedding favours, add a removable tag to each camera with a link to a blog or
webpage where your guests can post their pictures for all guests to see, the
bride and groom included.
If it pleases you to leave your guests with a
usable wedding favour, select your favourite herb or fruit bearing tree as a
couple. In a kind way inform your guests that the fruit trees are to be planted
with love and in honour of your growing love. Each time your guests peer into
the garden and see the tree budding or ripe with delicious fruit, they’ll think
back to your special day.
Small Herb wedding favours
Small herbs planted in creative pots that
mimic the character of the bride and groom can be placed on each table. Insert
care instructions into each pot. Potted herbs and flowers make unique place
cards at the reception. Seedlings of fruit trees can be placed in pots and vases
and handed out to guests upon exiting the reception.
Candy wedding favours
Candy wedding favours delight many guests and
impart both an edible and unique gift to your guests. There are a plethora of
unique candy options to choose amongst. Delicate tins filled with tiny mints or
chocolates are a popular choice. To truly make this favour unique, many couples
have the tins inscribed or printed with their married names and the date of
their union. The individual candies may be personalized with the bride and
grooms names and the date of their special day as well.
Personalized gifts serve as unique wedding
favours for many couples no matter which category they choose among.
