Bot of the helpful hints:
Our Blog is made for many couples one of the most tedious aspects of planning a wedding is wrapping the wedding favors.
Ah yes, so tedious!
I had a small, intimate wedding. There were no wedding favors to wrap, because there were no wedding favors. I’m not sure I’d even heard of wedding favors at the time, although I had been a bridesmaid once and was given a little bracelet for my troubles.
But on looking up “wedding favors” now, I discover that the wedding favor is a little gift given to all the guests at a wedding as a sort of souvenir, and that it is not a new innovation, but a rather old custom. And I realize that I’ve been the recipient of wedding favors before, although not wrapped ones.
The most memorable was probably from a fancy wedding on Long Island that had lasted till about four in the morning (it had started late, too). There was valet parking, and when we got back into our car and drove home, we discovered that on the rear seat had been placed a copy of the Sunday NY Times (this was back when I had a high opinion of that paper; I still enjoy some parts of the Sunday section) and a large bag of about a dozen really good NY bagels.
Now, that was a wedding favor.
