Planning a wedding anniversary party involves many of the same details as planning an actual wedding. One such detail is the wedding anniversary favors. The favors are a thoughtful takeaway for each guest who attends the party. The good news is that the wedding anniversary favors need not be elaborate or expensive in order to be memorable.
Below are some of the top ideas for wedding anniversary favors.
Candy is a popular favor for all types of occasions, including wedding anniversary parties. Candy favors can be created within just about any budget, and nearly every guest will enjoy it. You can choose just about any type of candy and then place it in bags or personalized boxes.
High end candy makers, such as Godiva, offer candy favors that are boxed and ready to go, but you will pay a premium price for such premium candy. If you are on a tighter budget, you can simply buy less expensive candy and box it or bag it yourself.
Another very popular choice for wedding anniversary favors are candles. You can purchase simple tea light candles, wrap them with tulle and tie them off with ribbon that matches the colors of your party. Another option is to buy candle holders to be used as favors. There are holders available that feature the number for milestone anniversaries. These candle holders start at around $1.50 each, so they are not terribly expensive.
Yankee Candle offers candles that were created to be used as favors. You can even have labels custom made. You can include a photograph of the couple as well as their names and the date of their wedding.
If you are having a seated dinner, picture frame favors can serve double duty. Choose pretty picture frames that you would like to give as favors. In each frame, place the name of a guest. You can now use these frames as place cards and at the end of the party each guest can take home a lovely memento of your anniversary party.
For a favor that is unique and unforgettable, consider giving each guest a personalized bottle of wine. Many wineries allow you to create a custom label for certain of their offerings. Some wineries even work with guests to create a wine based on your taste. That custom created wine can then be adorned with a custom label.
Imagine your guest’s delight when they see a bottle of wine with a custom label at their place setting. This is a truly extravagant favor, but it costs less than you might think!
Whatever type of wedding anniversary favor that you choose, remember that it is simply a small token of your appreciation to your guests for sharing in the celebration of your wedding anniversary. You don’t have to spend a fortune on favors in order for them to be special.
You can easily find favors that will allow you to stay within your budget while still offering something fun to your guests.
