Wedding Details: Different Wedding Favors for Kids?
Q: I am giving our wedding guests traditional tulle-wrapped candied almonds. We also have a lot of children attending the wedding. Should we give them these wedding favors too?
A: The kids at the wedding aren't likely to appreciate the candied almonds, but they should receive some sort of comparable wedding favor. How about a handful of jellybeans wrapped in clear cellophane and tied with a bow to match your wedding-day colors? Or if you want the kiddie favors to have the same look and feel as the adult favors, consider giving a cluster of colorful foil-wrapped chocolate eggs that resemble the shape and colors of the colored candied almonds. Today, many couples are foregoing children's favors in lieu of gift bags to keep the young ones occupied and entertained during the reception. Include coloring books and crayons, small toys, kid-friendly candies, and travel games.
