Creative Ways for Distributing Unique Wedding Favors
By Andrea Britt
With weddings become more and more glamorous and elaborate,
brides are coming up with new and unique ways to give their wedding
favors flare. Presentation and packaging can enhance the appeal of unique
wedding favors multifold. Sometimes, the way a wedding favor is presented
is what makes a wedding favor really unique and memorable.
Here are some ideas for presenting your wedding favors in a stylish
The bride can carry a beautifully decorated basket full of long stemmed
red rose candles. During the reception she can mingle with all the guests
and pass out the unique wedding favors herself to each guest. Not only
will she get the thrill of seeing the delight on the faces of her guests,
but also she will feel like a Princess giving away wedding favors on
her big day.
Another idea for creating unique wedding favors is a take-off on Dayna
Devon’s (of ‘Extra’ fame) idea of hanging velveteen cones trimmed with
satin and filled with rose petals on the chair of each guest. You can
create beautiful satin or organza pouches and trim them with antique
lace or rope. Fill the pouches with rice or birdseed, which the guests
can shower on the couple when they leave. Hang the unique wedding favors
on the chairs, ala’ Devon and be the season’s most talked about bride!
An absolutely fantastic idea for unique wedding favors presentation
involves the wedding cake. If you can afford it, plan to have a mini
wedding cake for each table and one grand wedding cake for the couple
to cut. Then put personalized silver mini cake server sets at each place
setting. When the couple cuts the wedding cake, all the guests get to
cut the cake on their table. It is great fun for everyone present and
of course the guests get to take home the unique wedding favors.
You could create air fresheners or potpourri and hang it in the guests’
cars. This was a unique wedding favor idea John and Rebecca Stamos used
at their celebrity wedding. If your wedding reception has valets, have
them put one in each car as they park them.
Another great way to distribute unique wedding favors is to decorate
the favors or place them on a center table in beautiful baskets or arranged
in a fun design. Put a card inviting each guest to take one favor. This
can be a part of your wedding decoration. Place one unique wedding favor
for each guest, as well as for children. Also include a few extras in
case of damage or double dipping.
Wedding favors can really be something special. Just put a bit of yourself
into the presentation and you will have a hit your guests will talk
about for a long time to come.
