We are giving away candles in a tin VERY similar to this. We are planning to display them like this:
NOW, we just booked a photo station photographer that will take and give out photos like this:
Now, I’m afraid that guests will think the photos are their favors and will totally walk pass the table with the beautiful candle display.
Should we place the candles at each place setting? Will guests remember to grab them before leaving??

Do you have a display for your open frame with the photographer? If so, you could put the candles there and let your photographer just ask each guest to take a candle when they finish the photo.
If you put them at each person’s seat, maybe add a note to it giving them instruction to take it home with them. Either way would work.

I think you should put them at their seats…. when my cousin put the favors on a separate table, only about half were taken.

I am putting my favors on a separate table with a framed sign that says ” please take one as a sweet reminder of our day” our favors are chocolate truffles

I would put them on people’s seats.

I prefer favors at the place settings. Usually after a reception, people are either ready to go home or ready to hit the bars for the after party, and regardless, they tend to miss the favor table.

I prefer them at the seats as well!

Agree with putting them at seats! If you have them displayed on a different table it’s way more likely people will just ignore them. Some people never really leave their seats at a wedding!

Thanks Bees! Looks like the favors are going to the guest seats. I will talk to my wedding coordinator about it!

Hey @TaurianDoll: At the table is my preference because people get something when they have a seat.

I also say at the seats. Some peopel may be shy and not want to be seen taking a favor, if that makes sense? But at the seat/table people will know they’re for them to take.

@TaurianDoll: you can put it on their table settings. Or, if you’re having a receiving line, you can have one or two of your bridesmaids handing them out to each guest before they walk into the reception area. In my culture, it’s common to get your favour (bombinere) after you give your gift (either an actual gift or money in a card). Either option would work well!

I am putting my jars of honey at their place setting. In my experience when the gift isnt right in front of them, people forget to take them.
