It is a fun tradition for everyone to select and give wedding favors.
It is a genuine way to express your pleasure to your guests, and you need to be careful about how you choose them in order to avoid mistakes.
Here are the mistakes that can be commonly made when selecting wedding favors:
1. Waiting longer to order the favors
This mistake is usually made due to uncertainty in the number of guests. First you need to have a better idea of how many guests will be attending the ceremony. Then you can easily order for a specific amount of guests.
Waiting too long will cause you to find fewer options. Personalized and custom wedding favors take time to make. Planning beforehand is therefore a must.
2. Unable to decide on the right amount
You need to plan in advance and order the right number of favors. For this, you need to decide whether you want to give one favor for each of your guests or one favor for each couple.
3. Ordering the favors that don’t replicate your individuality
Choose the favors that replicate your hobbies, passions or interests. It is better to go with a theme. Any favor with your photo on can be a great keepsake. Don’t choose favors that are generic and bland.
4. Allotting large amount of budget
Favors are usually given to thank the guests for attending the wedding ceremony. However, that does not mean that they should be costly and you need not spend too much on them.
5. Ordering favors that are not functional or useful
Choose favors that your guests can use such as frames, candles, magnets, chocolate bars etc.
