Picture with you and your guests

I was invited to a wedding last fall and I was impressed by the wedding favors that they choose for their wedding party. The couple would wait for each guest at the entrance into the venue, and would take a picture with each guest, or couple. During the celebration the photographer printed all the pictures and put them in picture frames. At the end of the event, each guest received a frame with a picture with them and the happy couple. These wedding guest favors aren’t just personalized and unique, but they are also elegant.

Poem written by you or your spouse

There is nothing more romantic and more personal than a poem written by one of the spouses. If you or your future husband have a talent for writing, you could write a poem about your love story. You can choose to have a personalized frame for your poem, or you can just roll it like a papyrus and give it personal to all your wedding guests as favors when they leave the event.

She gave to each guest earrings and shirt buttons made of wood and any other material she finds around her.  All the wedding party was impressed by those unique favors.
