The Wedding Favor Conundrum

March 3, 2014  |  Wedding Tips


When I saw this article pop up IG, it screamed to me that it needed to be blogged out. I get the “wedding favor” question almost weekly. My favorite way to answer is to ask:

What is the most memorable favor you’ve received from a wedding? How many wedding favors have you forgotten to pick up or thrown away once you get home?

And then … the lightbulb goes off. Brides either know at that very moment what they’ll “favor” or if they’ll forgo the individual favors.

As Southern gals, we know the value of a thank-you. We, of course, do not want to send our wedding guests home without that thank you. But, there’s a way to do favors well, and a way where you’re better off just saving your pennies.

Southern weddings aren’t usually small, so gifting custom luggage tags (and many of the other ideas included in the article) is near impossible. If you already plan to order personalized koozies (a Southern favorite) or stadium cups, remember that those can be considered your favors.

Regardless of the cost, gifting your guests with something meaningful and reflective of you as a couple is what’s most important.

When it’s all said and done, saying “Thank You” is what will be remembered and appreciated.
