Celebrity Wedding Favours Your Guests Can Actually Use
Picking out suitable wedding favours that your guests will actually appreciate can be as hard as planning the wedding itself. Senseless gadgets and souvenir pieces that they can only sit and look at may not be the greatest way to spend your money when getting wedding favours. You need to focus on functionality and practicality to make good choices.
Suitable wedding favours are one way to ensure your guests are comfortable and happy and can mean the difference between a memorable event and one that everyone wants to forget as quickly as possible. Depending on the amount of guests that will be in attendance to watch you tie the knot, finding the right wedding favours may be daunting, since people have different tastes. However, if you really know the kind of ceremony you’re trying to pull off, it’s a little easier. So is knowing your audience.
One area to look at when trying to decide on wedding favours, are celebrity marriages. Of course, you may not be able to afford some of the stuff celebrities give to their guests, such as gold bracelets given by Eva Longoria and Tony Parks to their female patrons but you can get good ideas that you can replicate to fit your budget. Here are 3 wedding favours used by celebrities that you could actually consider.
“Perfect Pair” Rubber bracelets by Fergie and Josh Duhamel: Rubber bracelets are sporty and trendy so they are worn by many people. They usually have little messages indicating support for a cause or organization so when Josh and Fergie imprinted the words ‘perfect pair’ on some and passed them out to their guests, it was pure genius. What’s more, the phrase can be applied to any couple wearing them since the bracelets do not bear the name of the bride and groom. If you plan to use a similar gesture, you can have your own set of words imprinted to suit your wedding and audience. This idea is simple and inexpensive with rubber bracelets being sold by the hundreds and being very low in cost.
Sugar Cookies by Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz: You simply can’t go wrong with food if you decide to have your guests eat their wedding favours. Sugar cookies are another well-liked treat for many people so even if your audience is mixed with the unknown, you will hardly put a foot wrong. Ashlee and her beau had the words “eat me” written on the cookies, which added a touch of humour. You can also add your own unique words to your sugar cookies too, plus you can make miniature chocolate chip cookies instead.
Leather journals by Trista and Ryan Sutter: So, maybe leather is too pricey but don’t let the idea of a journal as a suitable wedding favour get lost on you. You can find journals that are made from much cheaper materials than leather. Journals are pretty handy, even for people who don’t like to write as they can be used to jot down any little idea or thought. Trista and Ryan had their picture pressed into the cover of each journal, along with the word dream.
Those features are all optional if you decide to go with the idea of a journal, plus you can have whatever you want written or printed on them. Either way, guests are bound to appreciate the gesture.
