Guest favors are not required for a vow renewal, but like with any formal party, they are a nice way to thank your guests for coming to share your special day. One thing to keep in mind is that while they are not required, some guests may expect them since they are a tradition at weddings and they may apply the general rules of etiquette for a wedding to your vow renewal. If you do opt to present your guests with favors, do not feel obligated to spend a large amount of money on them. There are many simple, yet elegant options that are budget friendly including sweets, candles, and handmade items.
Favors can also make a nice, yet inexpensive addition to your table decor. Rather than display the favors on a separate table, place them at each place setting before the reception begins.
If you use your creativity and do your research, you’re sure to find the perfect favor for your theme that fits within your budget and allows you to let your guests know how much you appreciated them attending your vow renewal with beautiful keepsakes that they’ll want to take home without spending a fortune on them.
Favors for Children
If you are expecting quite a few children at your vow renewal, it’s nice to give them a favor to keep them entertained. Small boxes of trinket toys or crayons and a coloring book may also be much appreciated by their parents and other guests seated with them.
