The day went perfectly – your dress was spectacular, he looked like a prince, and the reception went without a hitch.  A dream wedding from beginning to end, one you will remember for the rest of your lives.  Those who gathered to celebrate the event should have something to mark the occasion as well.  Wedding favors are the traditional way to send a little slice of that perfect day home with your guests.  Thinking outside the box can turn these into something extraordinary.

Whatever you choose, personalized favors are always the best choice.  Why not make sure you stand out with a gift that shows off your personalities?  Start by color coordinating the favors to your wedding theme.  Add some staying power by inscribing gifts with your initials, new last name, or your wedding date.

Want to keep the memory fresh for months, even years after?  Seed packets are a great gift idea; when the flowers bloom, their thoughts will be with you again.  Many couples are keen on the ‘green’ factor of these favors.  Flower seeds offer an eco-friendly reminder of the love and commitment you will continue to nurture.

For a sweet twist on tradition, personalized candy wrappers turn simple chocolates into a wow factor.  Place a few at each setting for guests to enjoy.  You might also consider adding wedding place card holders in unique styles.  More than just a way to mark seating arrangements, today’s place card holders tie into the style of the happy couple and give guests a fun favor to cherish for years after.

Whatever your wedding theme or budget, favors can be a unique way to thank your guests for joining you.  Giving them a way to remember your happy occasion is just one more piece to a perfect day.
