When it comes to your wedding day, any bride-to-be will tell you that every detail is carefully planned. This is certainly the case with wedding favors. Traditional etiquette suggests that it is proper to give your guests a wedding favor to show your appreciation for their attendance. As time has passed, the idea of wedding favors has progressed. Now, more than ever, brides have more exciting and fun choices for wedding favors.

For couples choosing their wedding favors, there are so many choices today that it can become overwhelming. Here are some tips to think of when choosing your wedding favors that may make the process less painful. First, you may want to decide if you want to select a more traditional wedding favor or if you would like something more original or contemporary. Many brides want to follow the generations before her and select printed matchboxes or favor boxes with treats inside. The selection of matches and matchboxes carried by Invitation Consultants is astounding. We also offer a wide variety of favor boxes in almost any shape and color imaginable.

The color of your wedding and table décor also come into play when selecting your wedding favors. Whatever favor you choose, make sure that the colors match your table settings. Another idea to consider is if you are thinking of using favors that may be a little more expensive, instead of giving each guest a favor, give each couple a favor. If you have single friends, stick with one favor per person. This will cut the cost slightly and allow you to potentially stretch a thin budget.

If you are considering a unique or contemporary wedding favor, the only problem you will encounter is deciding which one to choose! The latest wedding favors are customized to fit almost any couple's taste or wedding theme. One of the most popular ideas this year is to create personalized CDs, using songs that are special to the couple.

Invitation Consultants feature CD jackets that are the perfect packaging for this favor. Personalized stickers complete with the couple's name and wedding date would make the perfect finishing touch to this very unique wedding favor.
