When buying wedding favors on-line be sure to accurately read the descriptions and order a single item first before placing the full order to be sure that you like them. For example, you may have your heart set on an original “Murano” Letter Opener bomboniere complete with certificate and this is what you think you’re getting. But if you go back and look at the description again it says that what you actually purchased was a “Murano like” Letter Opener wedding favor you might be disappointed. The imitation is just as beautiful but less expensive than the original but you still may want the original. If you wish to return them you now have to pay the shipping costs again. You will have paid the shipping costs twice and don’t have bombonieres to show for it. Now, another example is personalized playing cards. The description says that it is a personalized sticker that is placed on a hard plastic cover but you assume that each card is personalized. Be careful because they are still considered personalized wedding favorsand cannot be returned. Read, re-read and if you’re still not sure just pick up the phone and talk to someone in person. In Canada and the U.S. the call back time should be relatively short if not immediate.
