Wedding Tip Thursday! Ordering Programs and Favors
The little details can make such an impression on your guests and they also can end up costing a little more than you thought! I have packed up many a left over item at the end of the night and want to pass on a word to the wise. You don’t need one per person on all your items! For the ceremony, print enough programs for 75% of your final guest count. Most attendees will only take one per couple. If you are having favors and they will be picked up as guests exit the reception – vs. being set at each place setting – you can also use the 75% rule. Last but not least, if you have a grand exit “accessory” such as sparklers, ribbon wands or noisemakers, you’ll only need enough for half your guests. You can save a little money and waste by applying this information as you finalize your plans!
