That is why it is important for the Ohio wedding couple to send their guests off with a small favor that lets them know just how special they are to each of you. You can choose anything from a traditional sentiment from the Buckeye State to a donation to one of your favorite charities in their names. But no matter the favor you choose, be sure that it is one that lets your guests know you are thankful to have had them share in your big day.
A Gift with an Ohio TouchFor the couple who wears their Buckeye pride on their sleeves, they may want to consider sending guests off with a favor that rings true to their hometown. A mixed bag of some of your Ohio favorites, like coffee from your favorite shop, or traditional homemade or professionally-done Buckeye candies -- a favorite of the Ohio sweet tooth.
Favors wrapped in Ohio colors, such as deep reds and browns, will also emphasize the bride and groom's Buckeye roots.
Tradition at Its BestMany brides and grooms choose to classic gifts for their guests, such as picture frames inscribed with their names and wedding date. Fancy candles, fragrant soaps and even mint tins adorned with wedding memorabilia are also popular. Check out local Ohio shops, such as Original Favors in Columbus, that specialize in producing and creating favors.
A Gift that Helps OthersA new trend among just-married couples is to give guests a gift that benefits an organization, or even the earth. Donations to a charity that the couple holds close to their hearts are becoming more and more popular as a favor option. Brides and grooms then present each guest with a fancy envelope or scroll of paper tied with ribbon that explains that a donation has been made in their names. This makes guest feel special and helps other people who need money more than your guests need one more candle or picture frame.
Other charitable options include giving guests a small plant to take care of at home or planting trees in the name of your guests. These are all options that are ideal for the bride and groom philanthropists.
