Finding the Perfect Wedding Giveaways
Unique wedding giveaways aren’t a wedding requirement, but they undoubtedly set the mood and add more to any couple’s wedding experience. Finding the perfect wedding giveaway can be hard though, which is why we listed down some things you should consider when looking for unique wedding giveaways.
Before you can even consider how unique you want your wedding giveaways to be, you need to settle on your budget first. Sure, that succulent starter set may be something that your guests will love, but if it exceeds your wedding budget then you might have to look for other options. When choosing a wedding giveaway, always look at your wedding budget and your priorities.
Remember that wedding giveaways are not essential or mandatory for your wedding. While they do set the mood, you don’t have to stretch out your budget just to give them out. However, if you’re dead set on giving your guests something, you can always look for unique but affordable wedding giveaways! After all, when it comes to weddings, it’s the thought and not the expensiveness of things that counts.
Theme and budget are two of the most important things to settle in any Filipino wedding checklist since a lot of things depend on the two. That remains true when it comes to hunting for unique wedding giveaways. When picking out your giveaways, keep in mind the motif and theme of your wedding. That also includes taking note of the location and time of your wedding.
Knowing the theme of your wedding makes it easier to incorporate tiny details of your special day into your creative wedding giveaways. For instance, a rustic wedding can have delicately woven accessories while a destination wedding could have native delicacies as its giveaway. Play with your wedding’s themes, motifs, and even color palette and you might find interesting items for your giveaways!
Finally, consider the type of giveaway you will be handing out when choosing your giveaways. The type will determine when you can distribute your giveaways, as well as how you should store or package them,
If your unique wedding giveaways are food or trinkets that you can use after the wedding, you should probably distribute them after the reception. It’s best to simply have a table or station where your guests can grab a goodie bag before they leave the reception area.
On the other hand, if you’re giving away favors that are meant to be used in the venue, it’s best to distribute them before your reception starts or as soon as the guests arrive. This allows them to fully maximize your giveaways and enjoy the party.
