How to Choose Your Wedding Giveaways

Gratitude is a virtue

Large

For you, your wedding day will always remain timeless and will forever be remembered. But what about your guests? Can your wedding be a remarkable experience for all of them too? The answer is yes, and that’s why the idea of wedding giveaways was invented. It’s nice to show gratitude, to give back to those who love you, specifically the ones who choose to be by your side on such a day. Giveaways shouldn’t be given out of obligation, they also have nothing to do with how big or small a wedding is. Giveaways are about giving back and showing some love. It’s an art that should be respected because it’s not about the giving itself, it’s about what you give. 

Research and think:

Take enough time to do your research and ask about the concept. Listen to what people have to say about the topic, what they think about it, and if they have tried it themselves. Inspire yourself by looking at creative giveaway ideas and their types, online. You have so many keywords to help you, like “Wedding giveaways”, “Wedding gifts”, “Wedding favors”, and “Wedding thank you gifts”. 

Dig deep:

Now, you’re ready to take some real decisions. Dig deep into these questions and try to find some solid answers to and through them:

1- If you were one of the guests, what kind of gift would you be glad to go home with? Would it be better if the item was practical? Would you prefer something edible?

2- How meaningful would you like your gift to be? Do you want it to be inspirational or passionate? Would you appreciate a thank you note, too? 

3- What is the theme of your wedding? What are its main colors? What type of gift would match and fit into the bigger picture best?

4- How far are you willing to pay for the giveaways? Does your budget cover giveaways? What kind of gifts can you afford?

Roll up your sleeves:

1- Don’t let the opportunity pass you by, if you are a handcrafter who appreciates handmade goods, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and DIY (Do It Yourself) your wedding giveaways. This can save you money but will definitely be time consuming. Either way, it’s a good investment. 

2- If you’re ordering the gifts online, make sure to order a sample first, maybe 1 to 2 months before the wedding and before ordering a massive number. 

3- Whether you’re going shopping, ordering online, or DIYing, you need a backup plan. Anything extra should take up approximately 5% of all giveaway expenses.

4- The presentation and packaging of your giveaways is an essential detail to watch out for. Creating special packages and creative presentation styles add value to your giveaways and deliver your “Thank you” pleasantly.

Remember, it’s great to put effort into your giveaways but you don’t need to personalize them or anything of the sort, meaning that you don’t need to add your pictures, initials, or wedding date to them. If you wish, you can print the date on the package. With all due respect, no one needs a keychain with your face on it.

- Your wedding playlist. If you’ve really worked on that mix, then a great gift idea could be a flash drive packed with all the tunes that are to be played at your wedding. A truly sentimental gift. 

- If you’re interested or concerned with a specific social movement or cause, you can relate all your wedding giveaways to that and attach a note to spread awareness and clarify the meaning of the gift and why it’s important to you. In this case, you may actually get a deal or a discount on the products, if offered, because you’ll be helping with the spreading of the idea and donation growth. 

- Tiny plants in pots. An unusual but a truly exquisite gift that will definitely make your wedding stand out.
