Wedding favours that are both practical and functional can be easily sourced and will be better appreciated and put to use by the recipients of these gifts. Gifts like coasters and key chains are both practical and can be shaped to the needs of the wedding.
A considerate couple may want to think about giving out wedding favours which are practical. The practicality of the gift is important because keepsakes which are given for other reasons such as cost and theme may not be valued by your guests. It is a fact that many favours are quickly discarded soon after the wedding and thus they will not serve as a reminder of your wedding.
Should you make the decision to give out mementos which are more practical in nature your guests are more likely to appreciate and cherish them. Although favours such as these may not be the most romantic or lovely, but they are much more likely to be appreciated by your guests than more fanciful items.
Here are a few suggestions for purchasing and choosing practical wedding favours you can give to your guests on your wedding day:
- Coasters are one idea for wedding favours which can be romantic or suit the theme of your wedding but can also be very practical as they are usable and the picture and shape of the coaster can be tailored to suit your needs.
- Key chains are another example of wedding favours which can be both romantic and practical, everyone needs a keychain and like coasters they can be shaped to suit your needs and purposes.
- Candles bring light to the dark, they can symbolize the eternal flame of love or a romantic setting, also they are truly practical as guests are likely to use the candles in the future (black outs, romantic dinners .. etc) as opposed to letting them collect cobwebs and be forgotten, which is a likely scenario for other less practical favours.
There are many other practical gifts out there that can be handed out as keepsakes, it all depend on the creativity of the wedding organizers to make sure that the gifts are useful and will not be discarded. A favour is after all a gift to show appreciation and thanks to guests for attending the wedding ceremony and what better way to do that than by giving them something of use.
