Bridesmaids Gifts, Favours For Guests

Jul 01, 2021

Choosing appropriate gifts for your bridesmaids, appreciation presents for the bridal shower and favours for guests at the wedding banquet is a meaningful part of the wedding planning process. These gifts reflect your sense of appreciation, your taste and showcase the attention to detail you have put into your nuptials.

Contemplate the following at the onset :

  • The number of gifts and favours required. Be certain to order some extras in case your guest list grows at the last minute.
  • The budget you have set aside for this purpose and the range of products that fit into your price point.
  • How will they be packaged?
  • Will they be packaged by the vendor or do you intend to embellish or wrap them yourselves?
  • If you are leaning towards edible favours, be sure to take into account the weather conditions where your wedding is taking place, and if the favours will stand up to the heat and humidity.
