Without the love and support of your family and friends, a wedding can be a terribly chaotic event. Between planning for the food, the music, the flowers and everything in between, something as simple as a wedding reception favor for every guest can easily slip a bride's mind, leaving them to pick out something not very meaningful at the last minute. Thankfully, there are scores of favors you can choose from that are both heartfelt and meaningful, and will let your guests know you truly appreciate their presence on your special day.

The good news about wedding favors is that you don't have to spend an arm and a leg on a meaningful trinket that will show your appreciation. There are a variety of small presents that let everyone know how much you care, and will serve as a unique and fun gift idea or something they'll cherish years after the ceremony has come to a close. Giving guests a personalized candy bar with the wedding details on the wrapper serves as a delicious before dinner treat, and they can keep the wrapper for a scrapbook project or something else entirely. Votive candles are also useful, and serve as a pretty decoration to be used again and again. Crystal glassware runs a bit more expensive, but these are a great memento for guests, and they'll be able to display it as a collectible or use it many times after the wedding has ended.

There are many ways to show your friends and family you could not have done it without them, so let them know how much they mean to you with some small trinket or favor. Photo frames, mints, and sachets are also great ideas to give to your guests as a token of your appreciation. Weddings are a time to celebrate newfound love and happiness with those who are closest to you, and what better way to show them you care then by presenting them with a small gift?

Weddings are occasions that will be remembered forever, and a precious favor not only serves to immortalize your special day; it will also be a nice memento for your guests to cherish years after the celebrations have ended. Whichever favors you choose to give, let it be from your heart. You cannot go wrong with a meaningful gesture like that, and your guests will remember this occasion for years to come.
