Tips for Choosing Wedding Favors for Your Winter Wedding
When planning a wedding, you may be tempted to forego wedding favors to save some money, or you may wonder if they’re necessary at all. Give some thought to this before you make that decision; wedding favors are your way of thanking guests for participating in your big day and for supporting you throughout.
After all, your guests picked out a gift, got all dressed up, and drove some distance simply to make your day more enjoyable! Handing out favors is a good way to say thank-you, and if you have a winter wedding, you need to choose them accordingly.
First, think of wedding favors that all your guests will enjoy and not just those that mean something to you. For instance, you may be an avid golfer but for guest who do not golf, personalized golf balls and tees may not be the best choice. Practical items everyone can use such as coasters, picture frames, candles or candleholders, scented sachets for dresser drawers, key chains, and edible treats can be a good choice.
Choose items with a winter theme; silver often evokes winter if you choose picture frames, and you can typically find snowflake designs on many items as well. Pinecones and snowmen are also great designs to consider.
Second, consider unique wedding favors that will keep your guests warm during the winter. Single servings of cocoa, flavored coffee or herbal teas can be appreciated. Small bottles of hot sauce can also be a great idea; you can order these with personalized labels on the front. Bath salts for guests to use when they soak in a warm tub is also a unique choice. These all make for great winter wedding favor ideas.
