Simply put, I have a love/hate relationship with wedding favors.
As a Wedding Officiant, this really isn’t my business AND I am often asked by my couples, “what should be do about a favor?”
So, with all that I have seen at a wedding, I guess I do come with some on-site perspective.
For instance, see these happy faces to the right? Meet Caitlin and Andrew. They were married this past weekend at Seattle’s Lake Union Café. When I arrived, I found jars full of tasty ingredients to make homemade hot chocolate. What a fantastic idea!
As you decide on a favor, here are my top tips:
1) Make it hand-made or crafty.
2) Make it about something to eat and drink – guests love a fancy treat bag of candy, cookies or chocolate as they leave a wedding.
3) Make it about someone or something else. In other words, on behalf of your guests, make a donation to something special or a charity.
