Practical wedding favors make for gifts that guests won’t leave on the table or throw in the trash after your event. When choosing a favor, this is should be your most important concern.
So many people thrive on sweets so edible favors have always been a hit at wedding. But what if you prefer giving your guests something that will forever remind you of your event? A gift they’ll love using after your wedding or something they’ll keep as a special memento. A practical wedding favor is the way to go!
While choosing a gift that reflects both personalities is important, finding one that your guests will truly enjoy using is a different story. Take for example personalized guitar picks. They are lovely; you can even have your pretty faces printed on them. If playing guitar is your passion, you will be tempted by such favor. Take a moment, and ask yourself ‘What will my guests do with a guitar pick?’ Not much actually…. your pick will most likely end up in the junk drawer.
Should you choose a personalized favor? … Maybe or maybe not! Don’t get me wrong, a personalized gift can be really fun making for a great practical favor. It all depends on what it is. A hand sanitizer bottle personalized with your names and date of wedding is a great idea. What would not be as great is a personalized decorative item and expecting your guests to display it of their coffee table, or hang on a wall. That’s pushing it! One way you can get away with it, is to personalize with a monogram, and the year of your wedding only. This will add to the charm and vintage look of your favor.
