Five Wedding Favors That May Come In Handy During Your Ceremony

Getting married soon? If you are planning an outdoor ceremony, make the event a bit easier by allowing for the possibility of rain. Give your guests some fun favors that might make them more comfortable if the day happens to get a little wet.

Five wedding favors for your guests that could come in handy during your ceremony are:

1. Personal umbrellas. You can order the sweetest umbrellas with the name of the couple or a cute wedding motif for party favors online. These will keep your guests dry in the rain, or comfortable in the blazing-hot sun, plus they can take them home and make good use of them later on. Ordering these in bulk ensures that you end up paying very little for a really nice party memento.

2. Novelty socks. Consider something a little different and quite lavish by personalizing inexpensive socks for your guests. You can often order socks from custom apparel vendors with the name or the newly-married, the date, or other meaningful message; these are a lasting keepsake of your nuptials that guests will use and appreciate! Plus, these can help to keep guests comfortable if they have gotten their feet wet outside during the wedding.

3. A hat. Give your guests some kind of cap or visor with your new last name, the date, or other caption. These are found very inexpensively from screen-printers that make promotional merchandise for small businesses. These will keep guests' hair and heads dry during your event, as well as keep the glare down during sunshine.

Rain ponchos. Order personalized ponchos, the cheap plastic kind, with a fun motif and wedding message for each of your guests. These can be folded up and tucked in a goodie bag and pulled out to keep wedding attire nice and dry.

5. Tea towels. Create a distinctive slogan or message to imprint on thirsty tea towels. These make great souvenirs, and it is certain that at least one of your guests will be using this to wipe a brow during a rain storm.

Don't let foul weather rain on your parade; give your guests some gifts and favors that will help them be more comfortable if the weather turns during your wedding. Consider these ideas for some handy favors, or talk with wedding planners and merchants for other suggestions that can keep your guests dry. Set up a self-serve station to provide guests with warm drinks, like cocoa or coffee, to keep the chill off during your ceremony!

Even if your ceremony is outside, having these items will help make your guests more comfortable if you head indoors to a venue like The Manoa Grand Ballroom for the reception.
