My name is Lisa Gorjestani. I'm the owner of Details Event Planning and I am going to talk to you today about some wedding favor ideas, and how to approach buying wedding favors for your wedding. So, I am going to help you find or give you names of resources to help the packaging for your favors. There is companies online, very easy to order from, and what I do recommend is ordering bulk and allowing plenty of time to place your order. So here's an example right here of a favor where you can just buy a clear Lucite box, buy your candy in bulk and then also your ribbon and make a cute little personalized tag. There is other companies out there that have little plain bags that you can put whatever your favors are. It could be homemade cookies, it could be there is Artisan Rice Crispy treats, there is soaps, there's candles you can even get a julep cup, and there's companies who can actually pour your favorite scent and make your own candle, and then you can get a great box and ribbon to package it up. As a wedding professional, my advice is to make sure that you order in advance. Ordering bulk is fabulous, you can do everything online and create a really unique, special gift for your guests. My name is Lisa Gorjestani with Details Event Planning and these are some ideas for wedding favors for your guests.
