Edible or Non-edible Wedding Favors?
Very often married couples to be find themselves to be in this dilemma months before the wedding itself before making a quick and final decision which keeps them pondering “was my Berkat good enough?”. First before we proceed I suggest you to have an idea of which category that you prefer in your wedding, edible or non-edible.
Well, here are my two-cents about this topic and I hope that it will help you arrive to your decision!
The “Non-Edible” Wedding Door Gifts
Non-Edibles are generally more simple to work with as it is just an item usually comes in a beautiful package, eg. glass coasters, mug, metal works such as spoons or bookmarks. These designs are very intricate as well as modern and it will add a classy touch to your wedding leaving a memorable impression to your guests who attend your wedding.
Fork and Spoon Favours are a good option they are functional and they look classy, very suitable as a Wedding Berkat Door Gifts . They usually comes in the shape of a teaspoon with attractive designs at the handle of the spoon. It will be used during daily life and be put to good use!

Salt and Pepper Shakers
Nothing like a salt and pepper shaker to flavour the wedding atmosphere during and after. Salt and Pepper Shakers comes in various shapes, colours and sizes, most of them comes as a couple and are made of ceramic so be careful of the packing and transporting. Apart from it, it makes a gorgeous Berkat, no doubt!
Bookmark is another practical way of giving your Door Gifts as a Berkat because everybody deals with books from all ages! From Text Books to Cook Books to Magazines and Story Books. If you are involved in any of the related “Books” which I have stated and more:)
Just a simple mug is extremely functional and if sources properly, you can get it at good prices! Chances are at least one of the mug at your mug rack is a Berkat from a wedding or a gift so rest assured, it will be put into good use. You can customize it by filling the mug with sweets, biscuits of your choice or even chocolates and wrap it with designed plastic tied with coloured wire or even a simple ribbon.
The all time favourite mini soucer plate, this is also a good option as there are many stores out there selling it in bulk at amazing prices. You can customize it by putting it into an organza bag and a sticker of “___ weds ___”. These is one of many options which you can mix and match to make your Wedding Berkat unique!
Advantage Of Non- Edible Berkat:
1) It is quick. If it is just a product which you are looking for eg. mug, without customization then it would be very simple as all you need to do is to purchase and wait to be delivered and your Berkat is ready.
2) There are plenty of beautiful Non-Edible Wedding Favour out there, all you need to do is just to spend some time to search for it and if you don’t have time, you can PM us for ideas 🙂
Disadvantage Of Non-Edible Wedding Favours:
1) They are generally slightly more expensive as compared to the Edibles
2) Some of them are brittle, so order a few more pairs of those kinds just to play safe. it is better to have a few extra then a few shortage.

After a whole day of tucking in all the amazing food like Briyani, Nasi Minyak, coupled with juices of many sorts and desserts, all is left is some good-old Berkat food to end off the awesome wedding.

Wedding Favor Boxes like these(above picture) allows you to mix and match whatever Edible Favors you have into the box. Some ideas are like chocolates of your choice, sweets of your choice or even a slice of Cake wrapped in a piece of plastic which makes an excellent Berkat.
Fruit Cakes like this are one of the more popular choices of cakes in the choices of cakes for wedding favor as no doubt it packs a punch in your taste buds and looks beautiful inside out, it also saves your pocket from burning into a bigger hole. Another way to customize these slices of cakes is to put it in attractive organza bags, wrapped with plastic and along with it is a personalized sticker 🙂
