A Very "Unfavorable" Trend in Wedding Favors! - Linda Ellison

A Very "Unfavorable" Trend in Wedding Favors!
By: Linda Ellison

If you do any type of shopping for wedding favors these days, you may notice that the "hottest" new items out there include sachets, lip balms, guest soaps, bath salts, and items like these. So what's wrong with that? What's the "unfavorable" trend that's developing in today's wedding favors? Simply put, these favors are ignoring probably a good half of your wedding guests, namely, the men!

Ask yourself, what man will appreciate receiving a pack of bath salts or lip balm? Probably very few. They may turn around and re-gift these items to some special lady in their life, and you may be thinking that there's nothing wrong with that, but in reality, there is something wrong with wedding favors that ignore the tastes of half your guests.

The entire purpose of wedding favors is to express your appreciation to your guests for sharing in your special day. While you may think of you…

Menu Plan Monday

Well, I've taken a few weeks off from participating in Menu Plan Mondays but I never stopped menu planning.

Latest news: Charles and I are renewing our wedding vows this autumn. We're planning on having a cake and punch ceremony afterwards. We never had a a formal wedding so this our chance to do it without all the stress. Marcus will be escorting me down the aisle. We're also planning on having a family unity candle ceremony. Keep you posted.

Marcus has completed his sophomore year! Ah, how quickly they grow up!

Now onto the menu!
