Emergency Ideas For Wedding Favours

By on October 24, 2009

As bad as it may sound, sometimes, things would not really go your way. Sometimes, things would not come out according to planned. This is especially stressful and nerve-racking when this happens during your wedding.

What do you do when days before the big day, your supplier for your wedding favours tells you that they cannot deliver your orders on time? Or worse, what would you do if upon follow-up, you get the response: “I’m sorry madamme, but I’ afraid that we don’t have a record of your order.”

Of course, your initial reaction would be to burst into flames. While it is rational to have an emotional outburst and probably file an official complaint to the representative that has handled you, there’s another side of this story that needs to be taken care of as well, and fast!

Yes, you need to have a backup plan. You need to come up with emergency wedding favours! Nobody would blame you if you don’t have wedding favours to distribute during your big day but you definitely would not want this possibility to even surface. Thus, you need to gather yourself and be in the game of planning again — this time, focusing on wedding favours.

Wedding favors

Here are a few ideas:

DVD’s

This is something that is personalized and easy to come by. You can distribute DVD copies of the highlights of your life as a couple. Of course, you can also put in baby pictures of you and your groom, and some basic wedding details, such as the venue, date.

Giving DVD’s as wedding favours is also convenient. You don’t even have to contact a professional just so these will be reproduced. As long as you have a laptop, some blank DVD’s and a printer, then you’re good to go. This type of wedding keepsake is truly a do-it-yourself item.

Scented Candles

Yes, you may rant at how common and how ordinary scented candles as wedding favours are. However, if you just put in a dash of creativity into these candles, then it would look like these simple items were not really your second choice after all.

You can even buy these little babies in bulk in your favorite department store so you don’t have to deal with another supplier. After which, you can hire the services of a candle expert so he/she can then put a creative touch into these. In a matter of days, these common mall displays will cease to become ordinary and will be transformed into great wedding favours.

Porcelain Figurines

There are little shops in the malls that sell cute figurines of various designs — bride-and-groom, dolphins, cakes, flowers. Name it, they have it. All you have to do is pick a design and print little tags. These tags would then bear your names (yours and your husband’s, of course) and the date of your wedding. Viola, you have come up with fast but effective wedding favours!

Yes, it would have been better if things ran according to planned so you don’t have to be forced to deal with an emergency situation. But, if bad luck comes to you, then you don’t fret. You use that opportunity to turn things around and make the most out of the situation, especially if that happens on the most important day of your life, your wedding day!

    Scented candles are a great idea! It might even associate that smell with your wedding and the next time they smell it they will think about all the great times they had together.

    I guess if you are in a pinch, these are pretty good options. Hopefully, a person planning their wedding has a little more time to make the wedding favors a little more memorably.

    I really like the idea of scented candles. Even as a center piece you could have all the same scent and it will really give the reception hall a magical smell for all to remember.
