Make Your Wedding Stand Out with Favor Stickers
If you're looking for a way to separate your wedding from the rest, consider favor stickers. According to the latest statistics from XO Group, which created well-known wedding website TheKnot.com, couples are spending more per guest in order to create an experience to remember. In 2013, nearly one-third of the 13,000 brides and grooms who took part in XO's annual Real Weddings Study reported providing "additional guest entertainment." That being said, don't think you have to break the bank with expensive pre- and post-ceremony events to make your wedding stand out from the crowd - a small yet meaningful touch like affixing custom labels to favors can also do the trick.
Wedding Favor Stickers Tie Into Rising Personalization Trend
Couples who are eager to inject their personalities into their weddings hardly represent a new trend, but this kind of personalization is on the rise, and can be seen in everything from wedding favor stickers to signature cocktails. According to the Real Weddings Study, now more than ever, couples want to offer a unique guest experience that truly reflects who they are. Some of the most common means of achieving this aim are:
- Offering signature wedding cocktails: One in five couples did this in 2013, compared to just 12 percent in 2008.
- Hosting interactive food stations: These were seen at 15 percent of weddings in 2013, a modest rise from 13 percent in 2010.
- Inviting a family member or friend to officiate: Fewer than two-thirds (57 percent) of couples hired a professional ceremony officiant to oversee their ceremonies in 2013.
Wedding cocktails, food stations and non-standard officiants certainly help events stand out, but while they make great memories, these aspects aren't something that can be taken home by guests and kept for years to come. On the contrary, wedding favor stickers fit the bill perfectly.
You Can't Have Wedding Favor Stickers Without Wedding Favors
If you're sold on the idea of wedding favor stickers but aren't sure which wedding favors to go with, your event type can help narrow the field. Will your wedding be a classy, elegant affair? Bottles of wine with custom labels could serve as perfect take-home gifts. Are you planning a more casual beach ceremony? Lip balm with you and your new spouse's names printed on the container is a perfect choice.
