Ideas for Wedding Favours - What's Popular for 2011

By Jone King

Most people rely on movies like "The Wedding Planner" to form their definition of a typical wedding planner. For the most part, J.Lo as a headset wearing ''star of the show'' is fantasy when it comes to being a wedding planner. Unlike Matthew and Bridget's unlimited budget, you will be hired for your budgeting skills. But your bride will be stressed and this is where you DO shine. You will be called upon and hired or not hired based on your abilities to perform under pressure, like there is no pressure.

When you are thinking of gift ideas for a 2nd wedding anniversary for your beloved spouse or for a married couple you love, there are many gifts to choose from based on the cotton and china themes for the second year of marriage. The 2nd anniversary gift color theme is red, flower is cosmos and gemstone is garnet.

To give you some symbolic meanings of the gift themes, cotton symbolizes durability, prosperity and versatility while it is elegance and beauty for china. These are desirable traits of a marriage in progress now on its second year.This is the most popular program wedding planners can offer to their clients. Brides will comewedding bridesmaid dresses into the appointment with some of the choices already made, but would like professional guidance in the midst of the planning process. Brides think they can do it all themselves only to find frustration and an endless list of things to do hence, why they turn it over to a planner. This type of bride likes to have the final say in the decision making process, but wants a professional opinion each step of the way.

Another popular trend this year is the Wedding CD favour. Couples are choosing to create a CD with their favourite songs included to give out to their guests as a gift. This gives their guests an excellent takeaway from the day and can include songs from the evening celebration including your first dance to make it truly special. This is a relatively cheap and truly personalised.

With more and more brides being socially responsible, environmentally friendly wedding favours are an emerging trend. Buying wildflower seeds and then putting them in beautiful handmade paper favours is a great idea for your guests so they can then plant them when they get home. These look beautiful on your wedding tables and might even product some beautiful flowers. This year, small plants and beeswax candles are also extremely popular wedding favours.
