Weddings have always been like a festival in our country. It’s a five-day long festival that includes lots of entertainment, food, and love. The world in those five days revolves around the bride and the groom where people close to them leave no stone unturned making their special day a memorable one. While the family looks after the arrangements, the friends take over the responsibility for the entertainment of the guests. If the guests are happy, consider the wedding to be a good festival! Guests usually use their five senses to examine a wedding, they see the decoration, they hear the music, they eat the food, they smell the flowers and they feel good about the happy couple.
A very important gesture on behalf of the bride and the groom family is to offer them the favor gifts of the wedding. In older times, it was usually a box of sweets or dry fruits, but the time is changing now. Sending the guests off with a small gift is a tradition that is followed worldwide irrespective of the nationality, religion, caste or creed. You could always have 300 boxes of chocolates kept on a table near the exit which is to be distributed when the guests leave. But if you want to leave an everlasting impression on your guests and make them feel special for blessing the newlywed, it is important to go one step ahead.
Here are a few ideas to make the wedding favor gifts not so boring!
Offer them the gifts in advance
This is majorly seen in destination weddings where families gift the favor gift before heading to the destination. This reduces the load that is to be carried and if the gifts are eatable chances of their spoilage is reduced.
India has a tradition of gifting sweets to the guests at the wedding. One can purchase the local honey and ask the vendor to put the honey in the glass jars. The glass jars can be hand decorated with the name tag of the people who said yes in the R.S.V.P. This is one of the most thoughtful gifts that can be given as a favor gift.
Lucky bamboos are the best things to gift as the name suggests! These tiny planters in glass jars are perfect for any window sealing or office desk! For people who aren’t very fond of these can give this option a try.
Mini liquor bottles
Small liquor bottles of 50ml-60ml can also turn out to be one of the perfect wedding favor gifts for the guests. Branded liquor bottles in cute shapes can be customized with the bride and the groom’s name on it.
I lieu of the gifts, you can also put a card on the designated table stating that the money has been deposited to a charity that has a lot of significance. Nothing can be more satisfying than making someone else smile on your special day.
