Mix-and-Match Wedding Favors
Wedding favors come in every shape, size, color and theme. The favor market has exploded in recent years as brides forgo bubbles and tulle wrapped candies for elegant sterling silver trinkets or romantic but functional gifts. The options have grown so dramatically that instead of issuing a cookie cutter, one-gift-fits-all option, many brides and grooms are choosing to mix and match their wedding favors.
Since many married couples and whole families attend weddings function together, they often receive duplicates of the same favors. With the broad selection of wedding favors available, there are several fun and innovative ways to avoid this type of monotony. Instead of offering the same personalized frame or elegant ice cream scoop to a family of five, you can choose to carry out a theme instead—such as hearts, a nautical theme or wine themed gifts.
An example would be pair wine coasters with a wine corkscrew and stopper set or a winery themed reception. With a mix and match wedding favor set, your guests can trade or swap with each other to gain a gift they will love.
Another idea is to present different gifts to your male guests than your female guests. With mix and match wedding favors, you can place one gift at each place setting or arrange an assortment of wedding favors in the center of the table for your guests to pick and choose from.
There is a wedding favor or gift for almost every theme. Some favorites include:
- Beach/seaside themes
- Garden party
- Seasonal (spring, summer, winter and fall)
- Winery/vineyard motifs
Rather than presenting a one-size-fits-all gift, present individual but different wedding favors by mixing and matching. This also eliminates the need to pick only one favor when you are torn between several favorites. Your wedding guests will also appreciate your thoughtfulness and creativity.
