Atmosphere Productions: Choosing the Perfect Favors for Your Connecticut Wedding

One of the nicest things about weddings is celebrating your love together with people who have loved you throughout your lives. Presenting your guests with wedding favors is a way to invoke fond memories of the event long after the wedding. Sure, you can toss some chocolates or Jordan almonds in a pretty box and call it good. But why not give favors that say something about you and your spouse, and where your life together began?

If you're getting married  in Connecticut, especially near the water, consider giving your guests nautical themed favors from Mystic Knotworks. Beautiful, long lasting and practical, a keychain from these Connecticut craftspeople is a symbolic way to thank your loved ones for being there when you "tie the knot."

If you want to be sure tokens won't be stuffed in a drawer or gather dust on a shelf, give something that is both attractive and useful. One favor that meets both criteria is this set of heart-shaped measuring spoons. Bearing both standard measurements and "love measurements" like "a dash of kindness," these favors are prettily packaged and available with personalized tags. They're a perfect gift from a bride and groom who love to cook, and who doesn't need an extra set of measuring spoons?

Another great favor idea, especially for those who love the outdoors, is to give guests a plant that can be transplanted outside, to (hopefully!) grow as your love does. An advantage of small plants is that their pots can be wrapped in paper and ribbon to match the wedding colors, and grouped together on the reception tables to serve as centerpieces until the end of the night.  Be careful to choose plants that will thrive in the climate in which most of your guests live.

An increasing number of couples are choosing to honor their guests with a donation to a charity. Some, however, are uncomfortable with saying "In lieu of a favor, a donation has been made in YOUR name to OUR favorite charity." A simple solution to this is to have cards at each place setting, telling guests that a donation will be made in their honor, and asking them to choose one of three to five charities to which their gift should be directed. Popular options are local food banks, children's hospitals, environmental charities, and animal shelters. There should be a decorative box prominently located for guests to place their cards in. It's a sweet way to share the love not only with your guests, but with the world.
