Thinking of sending different wedding guests home with different favors? There are pros and cons to this option, so tread carefully.
Some brides like the idea of giving different wedding favors to each guest that attends their wedding. They might not gift each single guest with a different favor, but instead buy an assortment of favors and disperse them among the crowd to keep things interesting. While it’s a nice idea to switch things up, there are a few other pros and cons to consider when contemplating whether you should give everyone different wedding favors or not.
One of the most obvious yet important factors to think about when deciding whether or not to give everyone different favors for wedding thank-you’s is your decor and the overall look of your wedding. This is especially true when it comes to the reception.
Whichever favors you choose, you have a better chance of enhancing and complementing your decor when you choose one single favor to gift to everyone. This will create a uniform look when the favors are placed on your reception tables or near the place settings. However, if you can find different designs that have the same theme and similar color schemes, you can certainly pull off a variety of different and unique wedding favors.
Something else to keep in mind is the price and the budget you decide are right for your favor needs. Should you choose to buy a number of different kinds, you won’t be able to benefit from a bulk discount as you would with one specific type of favor. When you buy one single favor type in large numbers, you are often treated to a bulk discount and sometimes even a deal on the shipping and handling costs.
While most wedding favors you choose won’t require any extra time to assemble or distribute, should you give everyone different favors, certain types might need more assembly than others. Additionally, you or your wedding planner will need to decide who gets what, where all the different wedding favors should go, and how they should be set up.
