So we’re looking for wedding favors, or bomboniere as we say in Italian.
These can be notoriously sucky. Sometimes guests don’t even bother taking them home and just leave them on the tables. (BTW. That’s really rude. The couple spent a lot of time choosing the favor and spent $10Gs feeding and liquoring you up. The least you can do is take it home and deal with it later.)
So to not waste money, let’s find something no one will leave behind.
Fiance likes these coasters.
I think they’re pretty, but as someone who would never use coasters in her life, I can see this being stashed in a drawer forevermore. Especially with the word LOVE on capslock all over them.
I like these Venetian masks. They’re pretty and people can display them in their home or give it to their kids to play with. They’re about the size of your palm.
These lanterns are pretty too and people can put it in their garden or patio
And I really like this kettle egg timer, which is both vintage-retro-cute, AND practical…except so many appliances have built in timers nowadays.
This candle is soft and romantic, but who really uses them?. And even though they are expensive (you know, wedding markup), I think we’d look cheap if we give each couple a candle that looks like it could’ve come from the dollar store.
And I know I was baffled about the hoopla over the Royal Wedding, but this post about it has some ok favor ideas too.
Leave a comment and tell us which ones you’d like.
