Ask Andrea – Wedding Advice: Favors


{image by Jade + Matthew Take Pictures}

I find myself often giving advice to couples for choosing wedding favors. This little aspect of a wedding can often be overlooked but when done right is a really sweet touch to the event. Just think these two words, simple and personal.

Keep it simple, you don’t have to go crazy or spend too much! Edibles are always a hit, for example, at my wedding we tied popcorn into tissue paper and filled personalized to-go cups with them. Guests nibbled on the popcorn after the event, and I still see the cups at friends homes to this day.

It’s also a good rule of thumb that about a third of your guests will actually take a favor, you could also consider doing 1 per couple or 1 per family.
