We first met Tomi Kazarovich at the Ohio launch of Wish Upon A Wedding. She like us launched her company in 2010; it has been an honor getting to know her. It is with great pleasure that we introduce you to Favored Occasions; they are a reseller for Kate Aspen & Fashioncraft favors, Weddingstar wedding accessories, and also Carlson Craft & eInvite invitations.
Why I started my business:
I love being creative and enjoy seeing the pieces of a big picture come together. I’m very detail-oriented and to me the “little things” mean a lot. It’s always exciting to help a bride by suggesting favors and accessories to compliment her upcoming wedding. Knowing that my passion is contributing to making someone’s day a bit more special is very rewarding to me.
My take on favors:
A very important point I’d like to mention is that favors are still a key piece when planning. They’re not only meant to be a keepsake from the celebration, they’realso a token of appreciation to those who shared your special day. Today there are so many options for wedding favors. Not only can they can match the color of a wedding, they can also be used to help pull together or even inspire a theme, such as floral, Asian, romantic, or fairytale, just to name a few.
DIY and Pre-packaged options:
For those with a creative flair, I have everything for the DIY bride-to-be including bags, boxes, tins, ribbons, and labels – you name it.
For those looking to save time, but want something unique, I suggest favors that pre-packaged with a ribbon and tag. They can also be ordered with personalized tags and some even offer custom box color options. All are very reasonably priced and most do not require minimum quantities. This is a wonderful alternative.
Some of my favorite favors:
I’ve always been partial to giving gifts that are what I like to call “practical.” Something that’s just not put away and forgotten, but is functional and provides a reminder of the original reason it was given. Some of my favorite favors include: bottle stoppers, photo coasters, luggage tags, and letter openers.
Other items I also suggest include favor box labels, table numbers, place cards, and wine bottle labels. They can be personalized and are offered in a wide variety colors and design options.
