How to Make Your Male Guests Feel Special at Your Wedding

It is a commonly believed myth that men do not like to receive favours at weddings. I mean, men are far too cool to enjoy personalized chocolates, receive silver bottle openers, down whiskey miniatures or blow bubbles in the shape of wedding cakes – are not they?

Of course they're not! In fact, men are increasingly feeling more and more borrowed from wedding receptions as their female partners and children are munching through dragees and almonds, while they have nothing to enjoy!

The ancient tradition of brides favoring their female guests has been part and parcel of wedding celebrations for so long that it's about time this changed. Research shows that providing they are not too girlie, men adore getting favours at weddings and brides who are already adopting this idea are finding it very well received by all their guests.

Even in terms of the table settings, by giving every guest a favor it adds uniformity to the reception tables and at the same time makes all your guests feel special – which they are!

So, what should you favor your male guests with? Is there a particular favor to give? Well, there is no set favor to give a male guest especially and as it is a very modern idea, the possibilities are endless! Chocolate in any form is always a winner; Whether it is personalized, heart shaped, on a lollipop, in a box, on a plaque, in a box or in a bag, most guests do not seem to mind what format it takes as long as it is plentiful !!! Wine wedding favors also qualify as excellent choices. These may be bottle openers, corkscrews, bottle stoppers, wine sets, wine charms, coasters etc. Personalized matchbooks are also a great choice for your male guests. An increasingly popular choice is also the alcoholic miniature; these can be personalized too and look great at place settings. Do not expect these to be the kind of favor that ends up going home with your guests – they are guaranteed to be consumed there and then! Tuxedo Shaped Boxes and Top Hat shaped boxes are also an excellent idea as these can be filled with your choice of confectionery or – if you want to go for something a little different – why not go for a lottery ticket? Favors such as these are guaranteed to raise a smile!

Whatever your choice of favor on your big day, just spare a thought for those male guests who more often than not, leave weddings empty handed. Splash out on gifts for your male guests and you'll be so glad you did!
