If you or a family member or friend is getting married, you want everything about the wedding day to be perfect. Homemade wedding favors are an excellent way to add a special touch to the most special day in a couple’s life. Not only is creating your own wedding favors a delightfully personal touch, most homemade wedding favors are much less expensive than purchasing favors that are ready-made.

The best way to make your own wedding favors is to consider “personal” to be the goal. You want the favor to reflect the individuality of the couple. You also want it to be unique – something which could not easily be found in a store. When you keep these points in mind, you will be able to design wedding favors which your guests will be happy to take home and display with pride for many years to come.

One lovely method of creating a wedding favor is to make each favor a little gift for each guest. As a gift traditionally includes a nice container or wrapper with something even nicer inside, this can be the way to go with your wedding favors. Wonderfully-unique wrappings can range from hand-designed tissue paper or boxes, netting or fabric in the couple’s wedding colors, or small containers made of glass or metal, to name just a few. While the wrapping you choose should captivate the guest, it should also make him or her curious about finding the surprise within.

Tucked inside the wrapping can be the reminder of the wedding day. Depending upon the couple’s personality and preferences, this can range from homemade cookies or candies to a homemade candle or soaps to a favorite photograph. If the couple have had a theme wedding, other ideas could be a small collection of sea shells, brightly-colored beads, or another item which pertains to the theme of the wedding.

As more and more brides and grooms come to their weddings with children, assisting in making homemade wedding favors is the ideal way to include the youngsters in the couple’s important day. As pictures have always been a traditional part of weddings, the children can participate by making homemade picture frames. Depending upon the ages and skills of the youngsters, frames can be designed of clay and painted in the wedding colors, or made from cardboard or another material that is easy to handle and work with. Not only will the children love to make these special favors for your wedding day, your guests will surely appreciate and cherish them for years to come.

Whichever style of wedding favor you choose to make for your guests, keeping it unique yet simple is the best way to proceed. You will enjoy making them more if they are not unnecessarily complicated. the most important point to keep in mind is that you are not only giving little gifts to your guests, you are giving them keepsakes and memories. When the favors are created specially for your wedding, you can be assured that they will always be cherished.
