Choosing wedding favors that men and women will love at a coed shower can be tricky, but with a little creativity, it isn’t impossible to find something that works.
Let’s face it– most men are clueless when it comes to planning a wedding, and little things like wedding favors mean nothing to them. Many men do not realize how much work goes into planning the details of every aspect of the wedding. They appreciate how the whole wedding comes together, but each tiny decision and detail doesn’t interest them at all. Just because most men could care less about planning the details of the wedding does not mean that they cannot enjoy a few adorable wedding favors. You just have to find something that men find useful.
Choose something that has a practical purpose in your reception. Men may not take notice of the floral arrangements, but they will certainly notice the things they actually use. Beautiful place card holders, coasters, bottle openers, and wine glasses can all be turned into custom wedding favors for your guests. All of your guests, including the men, will take notice of wedding favors such as these. They can’t help but notice the personalized wine glasses as they take a sip of wine, or the handy bottle opener they can take home and use for their beer. Believe it or not, even men will take notice of wedding favors like coasters and bottle openers because they are practical and not just decorative.
This doesn’t mean that you should only choose favors that are strictly practical. You can still have favors that are cute and even a bit feminine, as long as you plan them properly. Wedding favors that coordinate with the destination, season, or theme of your wedding can be cute and fun, and many men will still take notice of them and appreciate them. Examples include seashell place card holders or candle holders for a beach wedding, Christmas ornaments for a December wedding, and whatever you can dream up yourself that celebrates the season or theme.
If all else fails, there is one wedding favor that is guaranteed to attract the attention of any man: personalized hot sauce. This sounds crazy, but you can actually create custom bottles of hot sauce for your wedding, complete with the date of the wedding and the name of the bride and groom. Both men and women will appreciate this in the kitchen, and your unique hot sauce favors will surely stand out among all the rest! Choosing wedding favors for men and women can be a challenge, but think outside of the box and you’ll have the perfect wedding favor in no time.
