When choosing wedding favors, remember that this wedding day is about the two of you. It is not necessary to try and find expensive and impressive items. Select something that is unique to the likes and personalities of you and your fiancée. Remember that your guests are at your wedding to see you, to celebrate you and to wish you well in the start of your new life together. Since that is their main goal, it is not essential that you try to spoil your guests. Save the “wow” items for your bridesmaids and groomsmen who have most likely participated in the preparation and planning of your wedding. For your guests: think of ways to personalize your wedding favors and to remind your family and friends of you while saying thank you.
