Wedding favors are usually for guests, but they can also be used just for you!

As is often the case, we have a different take on wedding favors than most. This is not a bad thing. It's the ability to see things differently that allows you to make a big difference with the small details. And that's the key to having a unique wedding reception that will have people complimenting you for years to come.

You see, gone are the days when wedding favors were just a bit of candy in a bag. Oh, that's still a good practice for a reception favor. But we're not talking about the ritual of using wedding favors in and of itself.

What we're talking about is this:

The incredible amount of variety and creativity in wedding favors these days has allowed these little gifts to transcend their original purpose and actually become theme enhancing, guest amusing, detail covering wedding decorations that may or may not be used as wedding favors as well!

So, to see some really unique ways to use even just one or two wedding favors to inexpensively turn your wedding reception into a themed, detailed, entertaining event complete with fun little touches that complement almost every area of your reception, see our favor ideas page.

For another important reason to use wedding favors that involves reasons you haven't experienced yet (though you will on your wedding day), keep reading down the page.

In any case, when you're done, the wedding favor ideas page is a great place to see what's out there and how to use reception favors uniquely for you and/or for your guests.

Okay, first of all, why even have favors? You certainly don't have to. It is, however, a great way to express your gratitude for your guests' attendance and support on your big day.

Your guests have spent time and money - sometimes a lot of money - to attend all the festivities surrounding your wedding. The fact that you are here looking for favor ideas shows that you realize this already. Congratulations on being a considerate person and a gracious hostess.

The mark of a great hostess for any party is that she makes each guest know how honored she is that the guest attended. On your wedding day, you will struggle with this...

In a very limited amount of time you will be expected to look incredible…deal emotionally with one of the biggest moments in your life…say goodbye to your former way of life…perform in a wedding ceremony…take great pictures…dance with everyone that wants to dance…cut the cake…throw the bouquet…more pictures…remember people you haven't seen since you were a kid…more pictures…and - are you dizzy yet - say hi and thank you to as many people as you possibly can.

Don't worry. Most people know that you have your hands full. What you can do is show your appreciation with reception favors. From inexpensive candy or flower seed wedding favors to useful measuring spoons to scented candles , the favors you choose should fit your personality or the wedding theme or colors. They can be used as part of your table decorations, or stand alone near your guest book or signature platter with a card inviting guests to take one.

There are unique favors to suit every budget and every personality. From mini wedding cake candles to tin coaster sets and bubble favors, there are favor ideas to suit every style and occasion.

Keep in mind - you don't have to find the perfect wedding favor. You can incorporate a theme, monogram, or color by simply adding
personalized tags, customized favor labels, or the impression from a personalized self inking stamp.

That means that you can turn anything from a do it yourself favor project to a favor bought from a store into a personalized, theme carrying gift that makes a big difference with the small details.

If you haven't found what you're looking for yet, try our favor ideas page. For favors more suited to a Hawaiian theme wedding or beach theme wedding, follow these links. Otherwise, if you're more of a visual person, try looking at pictures of favors and check back regularly as new wedding favors are added often.

If none of that works for you, another increasingly popular wedding idea is to simply use custom monogram or wedding logo labels on wedding favors, favor containers, or favor tags. This little detail can take the most bland wedding decoration or favor and turn it into a great wedding idea that carries your wedding theme and shows that you've thought of everything.
