Nice Personalized Wedding Favors

Does anyone have a recommendation for a place where we can get lovely personalized wedding favors here in Switzerland? We are open for any suggestions.

Re: Nice Personalized Wedding Favors

they are the little things you give your wedding guests to thank them for coming.

I got some at Fox Town near Lugano many years ago - silver pill holders shaped like sweets in wrappers.

I went to a wedding that gave a donation to a charity in the name of their guests instead of wedding favors. They put a lovely note at each setting letting their guests know.

Might save you some time and hassel.

Re: Nice Personalized Wedding Favors

Thanks for the answers so far. Charity is a nice idea, but my Swiss fiance might have a hard time understanding why we are giving our guests gifts on our wedding day. It isn't tradition here, I know, but I would still like to have a small personalized souvenier simply as a remembrance for us and our guests.

Re: Nice Personalized Wedding Favors

We set up a photo booth with a professional photographer and made photos of everyone which we gave as wedding favors. The photos came out fantastic and that was the only thing i was sure no one will throw out in a spring cleaning spree a few years down the line.

Re: Nice Personalized Wedding Favors

I also went to a wedding where they took photos of all the guests and a month later, I received my photo with 'thank you' card which I've been keeping it for 7 years.

and what makes you so sure what was so special about your wedding as opposed to other weddings? Social wedding of the year was it?


I have certainly thrown out such pictures out before, where...I was too fat, had a fat zit on my forehead...you coud see my boobs through my skin tight dress when the camera flashed...

Whoa. Maybe she thought it was a nice gesture and something personal? Gosh, have a glass of wine or something.

We had professional photographers, so they did some lovely edits too. And people are less likely to throw out their own good photos. Plus they were done on a completely neutral background, hence not looking like a wedding shoot and not constantly reminding them , ah this was the wedding photo of these two really weird people. Nah, it was more like, oh this is such a lovely snap of us done by a professional whom otherwise we don't have the time to visit. On the contrary, they will sooner or later throw out the generic stuff, like I have done till date.
