Every year, certain individual wedding favors make the cut for the "most" popular of them all - prior years we've seen heart wine stoppers, miniature wine bottle openers, antique bronze keys and mini love birds all make the cut. While all of those were trendy and fashionable, certain types of wedding favors are timeless and classic and reach the most popular lists time and time again. If you're in the market to shop for the favors for your wedding and aren't sure what to get check out these ever popular favor categories for ideas: edibles, practical, personalized and double duty.
The above graphic is a visual representation of the types of favors for 2013 that are the most popular among brides.
The number one most popular category for wedding favors for 2013 are edible items. With glass candy jars
being the most often purchased items. Brides will often personalized these jars with stickers, ribbon or a screen print and fill them with their choice of candies. Other popular edible items are chocolate bars, personalized peppermint patties, hot cocoa and cocktail mixes making the list.
Next, brides will opt for practical items to give to their guests such as mirrors, coasters, wine stoppers, bottle openers, photo frames and picture albums. These items popular for the bride who wants to make sure her guests will get use from the items at home. These types of favors show how practical brides are in 2013 - they do not want to waste their wedding funds on useless items!
Personalized favors come in number three on our most popular list for 2013. If you browse through our bestselling favors list
you'll see the majority of the items are personalized. Personalization was always popular - years ago brides would attach ribbon to everything they gave away. Now, brides are opting for more modern options such as screen-printed glassware, personalized labels or pretty stationary tags to attach to their gifts.
Finally, "double duty" favors are immensely popular because of their appeal - they serve as wedding decorations and
also do great as take home gifts for attendants. Examples of these types of favors are place card frames (to show your guest their table numbers / also serves as a photo frame), customized wine glasses
(these look great on your reception tables and guests get to take them home), and candles (which will make your tables glow and will go nicely in guests homes afterward).
