Wedding favors as centerpieces?
Thinking pragmatically a wedding is all about expenses and less about having any profit out of it. You invest money for the whole wedding in all its meaning and you get to so many payments to be done all from your budget. Indeed, you may get to have presents as well, cash if not wedding gifts coming from your attendants to the event but this is not a totally compensatory part. Of course, this event is a special one and the grooms should only think to their pleasure of organizing the wedding and having a party as how they like.
But to restrain the payments may be one way to get to cheaper ways to accomplish everything. Not that you have to recur to lower quality standards, but to make the list of wedding supplies a shorter one. For example, as tables decorations you need to buy some things, at which you have to add the centerpieces and the wedding gifts- in fact the favors as aimed to be the gifts for the guests-, as well placed here. Why not make it all as a combination and have wedding favors as centerpieces?
The wedding favors should serve as little presents from the grooms to the guests. Not that they have to be something useful, too expensive, but something to remind them about this day. The list of options is a long one and it all depends on your wedding type and style. But no matter what you choose the wedding favors are as well part of the wedding decor and so, placed on the tables they have to be in the same consent with the others decorations types. For examples, as matching aspect, as color- if you choose to have as wedding favors a bag of candies the bag should be a colored one as the wedding nuances are.
As for the wedding centerpieces as how they are called they serve as main pieces as decorations to the wedding, placed in the middle part of the tables. In this case they strictly have to match with the wedding, to represent it as aspect and style, to suggest the theme as well. For example, for no matter what wedding type the wedding centerpieces can be some flowers arrangements, seasonal ones to match with the period of time when the wedding takes place and colored as the wedding nuances are.
Considering this, how can one make the wedding favors be centerpieces? Imagine that wanting to have the centerpieces the flowers arrangements, the above example, the guests cannot take them when leaving. So, think about something to represent the two of you, a photo frame with a picture of the grooms inside, decorative candles as well, a set with aromatherapy oils and perfumes.
