One of the easiest ways to personalize your wedding decorations is to make homemade wedding favors. The homemade wedding favors that you choose should reflect your personalities, background, or hobbies or provide a glimpse into who you are. To make fast work of the projects, enlist the help of your attendants (or a few crafty pals)— an informal get-together is a great way to introduce everyone in the wedding party and get some homemade wedding favors made in the process.
