As you begin your search to find the perfect parting gifts for your wedding guests to take back home with them after your wedding ceremony and reception, you essentially have two choices. You can choose personalized wedding favors, or you can choose favors that are not personalized in any way. Each of course has its unique benefits, and you may be wondering just why you would consider personalizing your favors. Here are some thoughts to consider:
Your Special Day. Your wedding day is a momentous occasion indeed, and it is a day you will celebrate for many happy years to come. By inviting your friends and family to your wedding, you are sharing this special day with them. When you choose to offer personalized wedding favors as a parting gift, you are giving them a tangible memory to hold on to and to reflect back on the very beginning of the life you two will share together. These gifts provide you with a great way to continue sharing your special day with friends and family.
In Comparison. It is important to consider personalized wedding favors against the non-personalized variety. The personalized variety certainly carries meaning and significance, and these can be engraved or etched with your wedding date, your first and last names, or even a special proverb that was recited at your wedding ceremony. Non-personalized gifts, on the hand, often are more practical gifts, and generally they may carry the theme of the wedding. For instance, if you have a nautical-themed wedding, there may be sailboats on whatever gift you choose. They also may match the colors of your wedding, too.
Personalized Ideas. If you are leaning toward giving your wedding guests personalized wedding favors, you should know that there are quite a few choices available to choose from. When you consider that such gifts are generally etched or engraved in some fashion, you may think that your options are limited to glass and metal objects. There are, in fact, some excellent coasters, paper weights, vases, picture frames, shot and wine glasses, beer mugs, and more that you can engrave or etch. However, you can also consider some outside-the-box ideas such as a scented candle where the candle holder is engraved or a wooden frame with a small engraved metal plaque on it. As you can see, even functional gifts can be engraved or personalized with meaning.
There truly are some excellent gift and personalized wedding favors that you can give your wedding guests. Some people will give these extra special gifts to their wedding attendants and others will give them to the entire guest list. You really do have a wide selection of gifts to choose from, as well as some variety in how and who you give such personalized gifts to. You will find that by giving your guests these meaningful gifts, you help to create a sense of intimacy and extra special meaning to your big day. There are quite a few benefits to offering guests meaningful gifts such as these.
One way of showing your wedding guests that you are grateful for their attendance is to personalize their wedding gifts or wedding favors.
