In the process of considering wedding favor ideas, it is always a good idea to do the ‘shopping’ as a couple. This way both people can be sure they both agree that what is given out will help make their wedding memorable . The couple is about to start a life together, so looking for wedding favors together should not be too hard to accomplish. If it does not fit the schedule of both people to shop together, then they will have to do so separately and then meet at some time to discuss what they each came up with. While not as good as going together, this still gets the job done.
If a wedding planner is involved, it may be a good idea to get the ideas down on paper so they can be discussed with the planner and both people in the wedding. It may be difficult to get the husband to be to participate in this meeting, but it is very important that he get involved. If allowed to input his ideas into the process, he may be more likely to be involved and will get the most enjoyment out of the whole experience. If the woman does all the work, he may not feel that he is getting what he wants out of the wedding and the favor brainstorming.
As with many other things, the internet is a near perfect place to go for ideas for wedding favors. Since there are so many different websites all catering to pretty much every single desire that exists, a couple is sure to find a website that can inspire them to come up with ideas. There are various wedding planning sites, online magazines, or even the basic search engine that can be employed to find ideas, or at least a site that can springboard the brainstorming process. It should not be difficult to come up with enough ideas that will cater to both people getting married.
Another great place to go for ideas is, of course, people who have been there and done it. Both friends and family who recently had a wedding of their own or even have attended a wedding may be able to recall what wedding favors were given in the past like koozies, or chocolates etc….. Some of these ideas may be used again for the new wedding, or they may lead to new ideas the couple had not previously thought of. There is no resource like someone who has been there and seen it for themselves. Many times these people will be happy to help.
Other ideas include getting personalized favors for immediate family and friends. This is a great way to make the wedding stand out over others. The person who walks away with a personalized favor will feel much more appreciated and remember the wedding. Another good way to pick the favors is to plan them around the central theme of the wedding. This will create much better unity and make the wedding seem better planned out. One of the most important things to remember is to not feel rushed. If the couple tries to think too quickly then they will quickly become overwhelmed and the favors will reflect that.
