Here at Favors You Keep wedding headquarters, we try not to take ourselves too seriously and love to bring a sense of humor into serious wedding planning. It helps break the ice and put people in a relaxed mood. So much so that some of our customers call in their order and are giggling from the beginning of the conversation. All we have to do is answer the phone and say HELLO and they are already laughing. Some cartoon has tickled them or they just identified with it so much that they think we drew it just for them. Who knows? Maybe we did!
Our mission has always been to be original, innovative, give people more than they ask for, faster than they thought and say yes. So far, that formula has kept our customers happy for 30 years.
