In six short months I will be getting married to my wonderful fiancé Lauren. Believe it or not, most of our planning is already done. We’ve booked the venue, photographer, florist and DJ, etc. Coming up with a final decision took a few visits to each vendor, and we received promotional items every step of the way. We also chose to give away promotional products as wedding favors!
Vendors handed out everything from magnets to sunglasses, all imprinted with their company info to try to make their brand stand out from the rest. Being in the industry, I have become sort of desensitized to the typical pens and mugs, but it was nice to see Lauren and my mother get excited about every promotional bag and calendar magnet they were given. It helped me get an outsider’s perspective on how exciting it really is to receive a free promotional item.
We also had to choose wedding favors to give out at our wedding. It’s a hard decision! It was important for us to select a product that’s useful, will commemorate our special day and won’t cost us an arm and a leg.
I find many of my customers like to give out bottle openers as wedding favors, and it got me thinking. We’re going to have two special drinks at our wedding: an Oktoberfest and a pumpkin beer. How great would it be to give our guests bottle openers imprinted with “J&L Wedding 9/6/14” to use on the day of the wedding? They are everything we want in a giveaway and I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks!
