Good morning everyone in Huntington Beach and abroad! I received a note that has a fantastic wedding day tip from my good friends at Elegala.com and I really wanted to share with you this week.
So let’s say you’re an Orange County bride looking to make sure your wedding guests are not only well taken care of, but happy as well throughout your wedding day. Having been to my share of weddings in Orange County, Los Angeles, and around the country, I think that this list is really creative and will help you get the most out of your wedding day for your guests.
But before I present you with this week’s wedding tip and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Orange County Wedding Photographer in Huntington Beach, California, feel free to Contact Me on the Website or send me an email direct at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also stay in touch with me in “real time” on Twitter, Facebook and my Facebook Fan Page too.
So without further ado, here are some fantastic unique wedding favour ideas that aren’t dull and uninspired & have a super Baby Friday – cheers!
Unique Wedding Favors Ideas
Wedding favors often evoke a “been there, done that” response from wedding guests. Looking for something a little more memorable than a bag of Jordan almonds? Here are our top choices for a few inspiring guest thank-yous.
Late night munchies
After dancing for hours, rolling out individual snacks like mini hamburgers with a fixings bar are a big hit.
Rent a photo booth and let your guests take turns posing for the camera. Set up a DIY station with mini-frames so they can take home their favorite shots. Mackenzie & Steven did this at their Sunset Wedding that I photographed for them on September 13th in Newport Beach & it was a HUGE hit.
Escape the Elements
If you really want to impress, give your guests something sublimely stylish yet useful to keep them smiling through the elements: stylish sunglasses (to deflect glare), sleek umbrellas (in case of rain), or cashmere scarves (should a breeze pick up).
Place small journals at each place setting, and write every guest a personal thank-you note on the front page.
Make some noise
Liven up the party, and hand out maracas, small horns, or even kazoos – a great idea for a relaxed affair or a particularly festive bunch.
Gather a collection of favorite family recipes from both sides into a small recipe book or box printed with your names and wedding date.
Send guests away with a final parting gift, and enlist the parking attendants to place a flower with an attached thank-you note on the dashboard of each car. If you’ll be providing guest transportation, be sure to place a basket of these favors at the front of the bus for guests to take prior to departure.
Yes, this idea has been done – but altruism is at an all-time high, and we’re jumping on the bandwagon. Donating in the name of your guests to a charity, one that holds special meaning for the two of you, adds another sentimental personal touch to your wedding.
