From civil ceremonies and elopements to mega-weddings, every couple wants their guests to have a memorable time. They want to set their event apart from every other wedding, and can end up spending thousands trying to fill the day with a whirlwind of experiences and vendors that their guests will hardly remember.
The often overlooked tool to affordably ensure your wedding is one to remember are favors. Now, I know we have all been to weddings where the favors were the least memorable part of the day. However, favors are the physical reminder your guests take with them when they leave, so a memorable favor can make all the difference.
Many wedding favors try to be sweet and thematic, like a packet of seeds reading "let love bloom", or a small heart-shaped bath fizz with a note reading "you make me feel warm and fizzy". But the mistake here is that favors like these are only memorable to certain people; gardeners, and people who like to take long baths.
The key to a memorable wedding favor is giving one that EVERYONE will love.
It is said that the way to someone's heart is through their stomach, and we would agree that this is a great philosophy to have when planning your wedding favors. A local Mustard, spice blend, candy, or other treat is sure to be more memorable to more people since they can take it home with them to enjoy at a later date, and maybe find a new favorite local artisan!
Here is a quote from a wedding guest who received Dan the Sausageman's Sweet-Hot Mustard as a wedding favor:
"I have never had a more memorable wedding favor than Dan's Mustard! A friend got married last summer on Vashon Island in Washington State. She grew up in Seattle but went off to school in NYC and had lived there since. She wanted to give her wedding guests a true taste of the Pacific Northwest, so she chose Dan's Mustard. They were these sweet little glass jars, the perfect size for favors. It was delicious, and the perfect snack for waiting in the ferry line to head home after the wedding!"
