Beachside weddings are continuing to increase in popularity, so it comes as no surprise that the choices of beach wedding favors has expanded over the past few years. That begs the question; how do you choose a perfect beach favor that will survive travel and be adored by your guests?
The answer is not so obvious. To help you narrow down your list of possibilities, here are a few things to keep in mind if you have to pack your favors in your luggage and travel by plane to your destination.
Large & Awkward Shaped Favors
Unless you’re willing to travel with a huge suitcase just for your favors, as pretty as they might be, packing them for travelling may be puzzling and become a nightmare.
Favors can add significant weight to your luggage. Avoid the extra expense for an excess weight charge from your airline.
Fragile & Breakable Favors
How sad would you be arriving to your destination and discovering that many of your favors got damaged in transit! Packaging a fragile item in a suitcase can be quite tricky…. imagine if you’ve go 50 to pack!
Chocolate and candy favors don’t do well travelling to a tropical climate. If you do go ahead with chocolate, pre-order a plate of fresh fruits form your resort. Once in your room, open your suitcase and treat yourself to a delightful chocolate fondue! See my point? The only candy that can resist heat are mints and confetti almonds. To save room in your luggage, travel with your candy, favor boxes, ribbon, and tags non assembled. Once at your destination, get your favor ready before your event.
A Favor Your Guests Will Love
Make it worthy for your guests to happily pack their favors in their suitcases to bring back home. As newlyweds, your main concern is that your guests won’t leave their favors behind. For destination beach weddings, take this up a notch up since your guests are going to be more discerning about what they pack back to bring back home.
