Wedding favors are small, inexpensive gifts or souvenirs that you present to your guests as a way of saying “thank-you for attending our wedding celebration”. It has become customary to give something in return to your guests that they can keep as a memory of your special day.
Favors don’t have to be large or expensive. Some are elegant, some are practical and some are just plain fun. Choose a favor that reflects your wedding theme in some way. Once the favors are completed, attach personalized favor tags that include your names and the wedding date printed on them. You can use paper tags or monogrammed ribbons that you either create yourself or purchase from a vendor. Some couples also add a small saying to their tags as well.
Many couples choose February 14th as their wedding day, incorporating the love and romance associated with this special holiday. Here are 8 favor ideas that you could use for your own Valentine’s Day wedding.
