Wedding Giveaways Whats Up with That

Jan 24, 2014 | Posted by:  abi s


If you are one of those people who think that a wedding guest is getting enough with the free food, booze and cake, here is a little food for thought…
 
Wedding favors are what we give our guests not only to show our appreciation but also as a way to ask them to remember to include our union in their prayers, their good thoughts and in their hearts. We invite the people that mean the world to us to help us celebrate our union; this shows them how much we really care.

While you can purchase any number of wedding keepsakes online, in a department or specialty store, nothing says, “thanks for coming, I really appreciate you” like something homemade. We know that this is not something you will have time to consider as the months dwindle, but many of the do-it-yourself wedding favors can be made in small batches over a period of time. This works extremely well if you have a large wedding guest list.
 
How It All Began
 
This tradition is very old. In the 19th century, the aristocracy gave gifts of perfume or sweet treats. The sweet treats were almost like giving away gold since sugar was very expensive being that it was imported from island plantations. One of the favorite gifts of the French nobility was bonbonnieres, five almonds covered in sugar. They would be presented in elegant boxes made of crystal, glass or mesh and net bags. The five almonds represented the new hope the couple has for their family, wealth, happiness fertility and longevity. Many brides are reviving this tradition, and it is an inexpensive way to create a wedding giveaway that is meaningful.
 
When we see events on television everyone who attends receives a gift bag. This is a great option for wedding favors. While it may be tempting to give a permanent souvenir of the wedding day, this could also be a waste if the item is not something that can actually be used. Giving mugs, glassware, a souvenir spoon or something of that nature is a great idea. A wedding favor could also reflect your personality, giving them insight into who you are as a couple.
 
Is the wedding giveaway a necessary part of planning a wedding, iWedPlanner experts think that it is, but we also think that it is not necessary to spend a fortune on them. Even if you are not the crafty type you can find so-it-yourself wedding favor ideas online with easy to follow instructions. Look through the iwedplanner website there are ideas here that are easy enough, and you can start planning your entire wedding using the wedding planning tools that are absolutely free, and so are the wedding planning apps for iPhone, iPad and Android.
