When planning a wedding, there are so many things to think about and organize - the dress, the tuxedos, the attendants, the venue, the catering; it seems the list is endless.
Most brides don't mind choosing all these important details of the wedding and reception because, after all, they're fun! What could be more enjoyable than picking out that beautiful dress, the wedding favors, and the breathtaking flowers?
But all of these elements of a wedding and reception do more than just set the tone for your ceremony; they really express your true personality as well, and this is probably true for the wedding favors more than anything.
Think about this for just a moment. Your dress is going to be unique to you, that's true, but chances are it's probably going to be white and floor-length, as most dresses are. Your flowers will also be very unique, but how many people really take the time to make note of the different flowers - much less do they ever take them home?
Wedding favors are much different. What you choose as a take-home gift for your guests says quite a bit about you as a bride.
For example, if you choose seed packets with a personalized label on the front, you might be someone who loves the outdoors and wants to “go green. " If your wedding favors are made of crystal, then chances are you appreciate traditional gifts. If you choose keychains or small picture frames, you probably have a strong practical side.
Many brides realize this and take quite a bit of time in choosing their wedding favors, wanting to get just the right item to express their personality while still finding something that their guests will love as well.
Of course, budget can always be an issue when choosing wedding favors, and there needs to be a balance between something that expresses your personality and something that you can afford for a hundred or more guests.
One popular option that many brides have chosen in past years is personalized candy bar wrappers . These are a great selection because not only are they typically affordable, but usually one can find just the right design to match the wedding's theme and the couple's personality, whether it's elegant and traditional, a beach wedding, or something fun and whimsical.
Many sites online offer personalized candy bar wrappers, including TheKnot, as well as FavorsAndWraps. There you can find designs customized with flowers, nature scenes, cartoons, art deco designs, backgrounds for the modern bride, and just about everything in between. Whatever your personality, theme or tone of the wedding, you'll find a design for you.
In the end, choosing wedding favors is found to be by most brides not only a fun and enjoyable undertaking, but one where she finds that she truly has room to express her own personality as well and one of the most memorable parts of her wedding planning.
