Hit or Miss? The truth about wedding favors and other occasion souvenirs

The wedding day is without a doubt one of the most important days of our lives. All that planning, worrying, and stressing over the little things  culminates all in that special day where the couple will promise to stand by each other in front of their friends, family and loved ones.

Whenever I attend weddings, I get hyped about the wedding invitation and favors, simply because it brings out the personality of the couple for me and it is a good way to immortalize your special day.

Over the years, the wedding favors are constantly evolving from DIY candles, loot bags, personalized mugs or glasses, and today’s hottest wedding favor – the photo booth. Although some couple decides to skip giving out wedding favors and wedding invitations had become digital (Facebook event or a website) as it is more thrifty and  just handing out those perfectly printed stationaries for the VIPs.

But can you blame the future Mr & Mrs if they wanted to save some greens and re-allocate the budget for something else? Like maybe adding another tier to their wedding cake, or another set of menu or dessert.

People tend to overlook the importance of the wedding favor/souvenirs, and just put them somewhere in their homes were all the other occasion souvenirs are hidden. This is always the case, especially if the wedding favors are kinda tacky. REAL TALK. What you want is a wedding favor that is beautiful enough that your guests will be happy to display it in their homes. What is relevant right now?

I was searching for personalized items as a gift to a friend when I came across Pinlight Lasercrafts on facebook (official website www.mypinlight.com) and lo and behold, they offer a personalized laser crafted items for any type of occasion. STAY WITH ME.

You and your best buddy bonded over so many drunken good boys’ night out back when and that is most probably why he is about to be your groomsman on your special day. What better reminder about this bromance than this laser engraved leather hip flask. Plus points if it already has alcohol in it. *wink*

Bamboo chopping board, pine wood slicer, and pine wood spoon. Something that will make the heart of the truest #TitasOfManila flutter. Or, your Mom’s next excuse to invite the relatives over and show off these nice utensils.

And finally, my favorite item on this list! The laser engraved Wine Box and Souvenir Box:

The intricate details give it a touch of class. Once the wine has been consumed, it can be used as a display or memorabilia box or anything, but one thing is for sure, a beautiful wedding favor like this needs to be seen!

This can be a wedding favor to your VIP guests or this can be your gift for the couple!
