Because sometimes a message is just as important as the favor, a lot of couples add wedding favor sayings to their favors by adding a tag or a little note card to the favor, or by putting a personalized label directly on the favor itself.
If favors have a special verse or saying on them, guests are more likely to keep the favors – or the favor container or wrapper if you’re giving edible favors – as a keepsake. For instance, if you give candies in little wedding favor boxes or small jars that have a saying on them, guests can reuse the boxes or jars for holding paper clips or coins.
If you give personalized candy bar wrappers with special sayings or verses on them, after the candy is eaten, the wrapper can be placed inside a scrapbook for safe keeping.
And one of the easiest ways to give customized favors with sayings on them is to give laminated bookmarks, where an entire verse of poem can be one of the favorite sayings.
Bookmarks are the perfect favors for saying something special to your guests while giving them a practical gift they can take home and use.
Other popular ways of using wedding favor sayings include using types of favors that can be personalized, for example candy bar wrappers, fortune cookies, small jars with personalized labels and laminated bookmarks.
One way to include a variety of sayings is to mix up the favors a bit. You can do this by having a few different sayings and put a different one on each favor. This will have your guests chatting about their favors and maybe even exchanging them with each other for their favorite verse.
A lot of couples are deciding to cut costs by making their homemade wedding favors. This is a great idea since homemade favors can be completely customized to match a wedding theme or simply to portray more of the couple’s personality by the types of favors they make, including writing their own special verse or saying on the favors.
But even if the couple purchases wholesale wedding favors or even favor kits to assemble, adding a personal message to the favors makes them that much more special, a little gift that guests will want to keep as a memento and not simply throw away when they get home.
