What Are the Best Ways to Give Wedding Favors to Guests?
There are all sorts of fun ways to get your wedding favors into your guests' hands.
One Favor at Each Place Setting
Place a favor on or around each plate. For this setup, you should purchase one favor for each guest (including children) as well as a few extras in case of damage or unexpected guests.
One Favor per Couple
More economical than the previous setup, this system cuts the favor budget in half. Place the favor between the place settings of each couple, and be sure to label them with the recipients' names. All couples, including married couples and casual dates, share a favor. Guests who attend without a date should be provided with an individual favor. Don't forget the kids. Children and young adults attending the wedding with parents should be given their own favors; siblings shouldn't be asked to share.
Rather than placing favors directly on the guests' tables, why not place all of your favors in a central location? Arrange your wedding favors in beautiful baskets, or stack them in fun designs. Place a sign next to the favor display inviting your guests to take one. Purchase one favor for each guest (including children), as well as a few extras. You may have favors left over, but you should not intentionally provide fewer favors than guests.
If there will be valet parking at your reception, ask the valets to help by placing favors inside your guests' cars. A CD with the two of you singing or giving a "thank-you" message is a humorous idea, as is an air freshener hung on each rearview mirror!
