We know that (most!) weddings don’t happen overnight; instead there are months of planning and years of dreams coming together to create an experience that everyone involved will remember. We also know that to actually make all of this happen it’s not a solo show; it really does take a village. Demonstrating gratitude for those who show up and turn it out for you is an important part of the experience. Thus, your wedding favors should get some true creative thought. Not only are wedding favors a signature way to thank your wedding guests and leave them with a memento of your marriage, they offer yet another way to be creative with your wedding planning process.
With this in mind, we’ve been chatting with some of the foremost creative’s in the wedding industry to gather a few suggestions for your wedding favors; tokens of gratitude that go far beyond the monogrammed trinket.
If you’ve planned a destination wedding, it’s always a great idea to generously thank the ones who’ve come the extra mile to celebrate with you. The team at Simone LeBlanc are known for their particularly delightful “Warm Welcome Box.” This warmest of welcomes is expertly crafted to make sure your guests feel your gratitude in the most genuine way. The Welcome Box includes a bountiful assortment of both instant indulgences and take-home treasures, designed to evoke the luxury and care of a special and memorable stay. Another detail we love? They offer this sweet wedding favor with the option to monogram or not to monogram. Beautiful!
Alison Rinderknecht, Creative Director over at Alison Events, is a big fan of meaningful keepsake alternatives sharing, “though it can be easy to get monogram fever and stamp your initials and wedding date on everything, remember that it's your wedding, not your guest's and as much as they love you they may not hold onto a beautiful leather pouch or a wooden frame if they are branded with somebody else's name on them. Instead, think about gifting something that they will use in the future, or that they can enjoy the weekend of your wedding and reflects the wedding locale.”
