So YOU organise a wedding, YOU pay for the guests to come and enjoy a delicious meal, THEY get to see YOU get married (ding ding ding jackpot) and then in return YOU have to give THEM some sugared almonds to say ‘thanks for coming’? Discuss.
Shock horror, I’m not into wedding favours. I just don’t really get them. I just don’t get why couples panic hours before their wedding because they haven’t tied up all the bows to their packs of sweets, only for half of them to end up on the floor at the end of the night. Plus they’re bloody expensive! Of course they are. And another thing! Who are they a ‘favour’ to, exactly?
My sister didn’t have any favours at her wedding, good work sis. Mr DTE and I have decided we’re going to give our guests a little something something; but it’ll cost approximately 1p and will take about 10 minutes to do. It’s more of a sentimental keepsake rather than a ‘keeping up the wedding appearances’ type thing. I can’t tell you what it is though, silly…Weddings are like MI5 secret mission operations, remember??
I must say, if I do go to a wedding where a little favour is waiting for me when I get to my table, I think:
Wonderful, I could do with some sugared almonds right now
It’s a lovely bonus. However, If I turn up to a wedding where zero favours are waiting for me, I do not think:
Well where are my sugared almonds?? This is outrageous. What a ridiculous wedding, I must now leave
If you’d like my advice, say no to wedding favours, save yourself a few hundred quid and spend that money on the bar, or yourself. Honeymoon fund it up! You deserve it…
If you have any alternative wedding favour ideas then send those in…why not? You might inspire me and change my mind on the whole wedding favour issue. Maaaaybe.
