On-Line Wedding Favors/ Where and When to Buy?
Everything is now coming together for your wedding and you getting to the final details. About 2 months ahead of time you should have a fairly accurate estimate of what your final attending numbers are going to be. It’s time to start thinking about that perfect thank you for your guests. Ideally wedding favors should be ordered 3-4 weeks in advance. In a perfect world they will only actually take 7-10 days. Leave yourself enough time to make sure all of the favors are perfect. By giving yourself a cushion for time, you allow for unforeseen shipping delays or damaged item replacement.
When ordering custom or personalized wedding favors you should allow approximately 3-4 weeks. This is to allow for screening, processing and transit time. Once again this is in a perfect world and an extra week or two would be better. These time estimates are for items such as glassware. There are also many personalized items that take no extra time at all. Items that come with personalized stickers do not have an added wait time but the stickers are not usually on the favors when they are delivered. You would most likely still have to apply the stickers to the wedding favors. Whichever type of personalization you choose you will get to design them yourself. Make sure you pick an on-line wedding favor site that has the design tools available to you so you can actually see what you’ve created. This will save you disappointment when your order arrives. Just remember when designing and ordering personalized wedding favors to check and re-check as they cannot be returned.
On-line wedding favors offer the largest selection of favors for the lowest price. This is because they have no overhead so they can pass the savings on to you. The downside is you will normally have to pay upfront for the wedding favors. Be aware when ordering your wedding favors that they are being shipped from the same country that you are ordering them from. For example, if your favors are being ordered in Canada and being shipped to Canada from the United States you will most likely incur extra taxes and brokerage fees as well as delayed delivery from border processing. These unexpected costs will be charged to you upon delivery. You can save these unexpected cost and time delays by finding out where your order will be shipped from first. All-in-all, shopping on-line will offer you the largest selection for the lowest price. Shop wisely and have fun.
