I have been asked why? Why wedding favors/party favors?
Well, here’s my why … I LOVE beautiful things! I LOVE celebrating happy times and making lasting memories!
I can remember, as a little girl, waiting for my parents to come home from a wedding, anniversary, shower, or Christening. Sometimes it was so late I could barely keep my eyes open. I wanted to see their favor/ bomboniere. I loved the frilly tulle pouch filled with those sweet Jordan almonds (confetti) and their “gift” all wrapped up, ever so pretty! The “gift” would then be displayed on a coffee table or in a credenza, where I would pass and admire for days and days. I visit my mom’s, and, now, in my own home, I still look at those “gifts” and have fond memories. Some are over 40 yrs old!
Today, it is not so different…I wait anxiously for my vendors to release their NEW favor lines. Excited to see one more beautiful than the other. I love imagining how I am going to wrap them. Paper, satin, tulle, ribbon, jewels .. I love them all!
Some couples shy away from giving favors. For some, it’s a financial factor, others feel they are not an important part of their celebration.
I’m here to say… You’re favors ARE important! After all, you invited your guests, some have come from distances. They are there to celebrate YOU! They spend most of their day (and night) getting ready to see you! Your favor says “Thank You! We loved sharing our special day with you!”
Long after the ceremony is over and the DJ/Band stops playing, your favor will remind them of your perfect celebration and give an everlasting memory of the amazing time they shared with you.
And, who knows, there may be a little girl waiting anxiously at home to see “their gift”!
