Wedding Wednesday by Cathy- Choosing Your Wedding Favour

Presentation often creates a lasting impression, sometimes more than the item inside the packaging. A beautiful presentation often adds to the perceived essential value of the item.

Try to remember one of the most beautifully gift-wrapped presents you've received over the years. You may remember the gift wrap, but have no idea what was inside the package. That's the power of packaging.

If you're giving one favour per person, incorporate the favours into the table setting. If you're giving one favor per couple or per family, ask your attendants to distribute the favours as your guests leave at the end of the reception.

There are a variety of wonderful wedding favours th at you can make yourself or purchase. The key is to make it personal.Use card stock and ribbon to make a pretty paper tag which you can attach with a ribbon.Use a single hole punch to make a circle at the side or top of the tag and slide a piece of ribbon through the hole so it will be ready to tie to your wedding favors.

You may want to order custom printed labels.

Here are some ideas for wedding favours:
*Make your guests gourmet cookies or chocolates.
*Give guests a package of spring bulbs or flower seeds
accompanied by growing instructions.
*Make handmade aromatherapy candles, soaps or jam.
*Make a CD of your wedding playlist & package in a decorated CD case
