Catering Corner: Favorable Favors

April 03, 2013

Instead of giving individual favors to each guest, many couples are choosing alternate ways to thank their guests for coming to their wedding.  A donation to a charity of the couple’s choosing has been very popular lately, and is a lovely way to spend the extra cost you would have spent on favors.  If you do choose to give favors, think about items that are meaningful to you as a couple, such as huckleberry jam from your family’s huckleberry bushes or coffee beans from Starbucks where she first caught his eye.  Anything that reminds your guests of you as a couple will be cherished and taken home, rather than discarded by the end of the night.
