Planning for a wedding can be a demanding and stressful task. Most couples prefer to hire a wedding planner to take care of all the necessary tasks involved in the ceremony and reception. From invitations, to cakes, and wedding favors. But how about couples who cannot afford to hire one? Creative and affordable options are also available to those who prefer to take matters in their own hands.
In most countries, traditions are a big part of weddings. For instance, Indian weddings involve pre-wedding ceremonies which give emphasis on their cultural rituals and customs. Gifts that represent the newly weds culture are given high praises, and are truly memorable to those who receive them. Hence, it is important to give consideration to the beliefs of the guests who will be attending the wedding ceremony.
Jordan almonds are a huge favorite among wedding favors. They are important in Italian and Greek weddings, since they represent the bittersweet taste of life, which refers to its ups and downs. These are given as favors to guests in hopes that the newly wed couple will be together through thick and thin.
Tokens of appreciation can include a photo of the newly weds. Items that can be used by both male and female guests are better, and they also makes segregation and packing a lot easier. This option is also time and energy saving, not to mention budget-friendly.
Couples can also be creative with their giveaways. Those who have time to craft their own thank you notes and tokens give a little more to their guests compared to items that are bought from a shop. It is also more memorable to the couple since it has their personal touch. Plain boxes can be artistically designed and used as packages for the items to be given away. Wedding themes can help make the items look coordinated and elegant.
Door gifts need not be expensive. Those who make plans in creating or shopping for them can save a lot in the long run. Time is essential in organizing a wedding, and those who are keen on crafting their own giveaways should plan ahead and manage their time effectively. Couples can research online to help them look for materials they can use in creating their wedding favors. Do-it-yourself guides can also be found over the internet. The best way to finish the job right away is for the couple to ask some of their closest friends for help.
