If coming up with creative wedding planning ideas has made you ready to pull your hair out, relax. From personalized wedding favors and decorations to the menu choices, there are many directions you can take your wedding. Your wedding favors, though a charming, memorable keepsake from your big day, shouldn't trip you up when you're this close to the finish line. If you haven't quite decided which direction to take your favors, try drawing inspiration from your wedding planning ideas, including your theme, colors, or seasonal influences. If you're hosting an autumn wedding, place delicate, golden leaf bookmarks by each guest's place card. For a fun, festive Las Vegas wedding, embellish the table with poker chip key chains or a fresh pack of cards printed with a design of your choosing on the back.

Because wedding favors are a thoughtful way to help guests remember the loving couple long after the big day, choosing unique and/or personalized wedding favors that are usable or decorative guarantees that your friends and family will derive a longer shelf-life from them. Brides are getting much more creative, however, and are opting not to stick to the usual tried-and-true wedding planning ideas. Instead of hum-drum wedding favors, couples are giving guests items they can use again and again.
