When it comes to wedding favors many brides can be choose their favors according to their own personal style. This of course is perfectly fine, wedding favors need to be a reflection of your own taste and style, as well as coordinating with your wedding style and theme if you are having one.
But the type of brides choose can fall into one of four categories. Question is, which one are you?
Traditional Bride, Traditional Favors
The traditional bride will want the big wedding, a church ceremony and all the traditional elements to the reception. When it comes to wedding favors the traditional bride will look for boxes or bags of chocolates or almonds, or choose miniature wedding bells.
Other traditional favor ideas include white candles, small classic photograph frames and luxury chocolate truffles. When it comes to presentation the traditional bride will go for simple cube style boxes, voile bags or tulle nets. Decoration will be simple ribbons and thank you tags.
Modern Bride, Modern Favors
The modern bride will choose either a religious or civil ceremony but her wedding planning will include on trend elements and will possibly be very unique. Her wedding favors will be no different; she will raid the favor stores looking for something different, unique and perhaps a little quirky. The modern bride is also the most likely to choose a themed wedding and will pay great attention to making sure her favors are a keen match.
Typically the modern will choose these types of favors – bottle stoppers, gourmet coffee or tea, custom cookies, flower seeds, coasters, themed candle holders, themed photograph frames, sets of mini soaps, personalized chocolate bars.
Her packaging will include novelty boxes, boxes in her wedding colors, fabric bags made from linen, silk, Hessian and sisal. She will also choose small metal tins and have custom labels made in her wedding colors and which will match her wedding stationery. Decorations may be very minimal, perhaps just simple ribbon ties and stickers.
Luxury Bride, Luxury Favors
This is the bride who has to have it all and will have all her hearts desires for her wedding day. Her wedding favors will be a cut above the rest, probably costing two or more times that of the average favor. She will think nothing of handing out half bottles of champagne or vintage wine, buy acomplia diet pills or even small silver boxes or photograph frames.
Other luxury wedding favors include luxury handmade truffles, mini iced cakes, crystal glasses perhaps engraved with the couple’s names and wedding date and custom goody bags filled with a range of treats and gifts.
DIY Bride, DIY Favors
The DIY bride is very creative and will involve herself in every element of her wedding. She may be making her wedding dress or someone close to her is, she will certainly make her own table centers and of course, her wedding favors.
Wedding favors will give her the chance to exert her creative skills and she will no doubt rise to the challenge with some beautifully made gifts that are a special as they are unique. DIY favors depend on the capabilities of the bride but can range from small scented sachets to handmade soaps, chocolates, candles, cookies and jars of homemade preserves.
DIY wedding favors are also a top choice for those on a limited budget and for those who aren’t very creative, simple favors such as printed recipes or personalized CD’s.
