5 Awesome Wedding Favors

Couples exchanging vows today want their wedding favors to be as unique as they are and express something personal about themselves. Thank your guests for sharing in this very special time by giving them a token of your appreciation that’s thoughtful and memorable, a true reflection of your most important day.
Wedding favors don’t have to end up costing more than the honeymoon does. In fact, just the opposite is true because favors that are simple and elegant, but meaningful, often convey your message best. And those that are personally made are increasingly popular and lend an extra special touch to any wedding by giving your friends and family the perfect souvenir of your big day.
Whether the sky’s the limit as far as price is concerned or you and your bridesmaids will be crafting every piece by hand to save a few dollars, here are five ideas for awesome wedding favors that will leave a lasting impression on your guests and add to the overall ambiance of your wedding.
A Toast to the Happy Couple
A wedding favor that’s grown in popularity as of late, are personalized wine or champagne bottles complete with your names and the date of your ceremony. To save on funds, the bottles could be given to each couple instead of per person placed in a decorative bag in the colors of the wedding party’s attire.
Let Your Love Grow
If your wedding decorations or bouquets feature a specific flower or a few types of flowers, consider giving guests nicely decorated seed packets to plant at home. This way, a part of your wedding lives on and it gives guests a lovely reminder of your nuptials. You could also place a single flower in a vase or pot at each place setting as well.
Light Up The Night
You can never go wrong with candles, and presentation, of course, is of the utmost importance. Instead of simply wrapping a plain candle in a piece of tulle and tying it with a ribbon, why not put some extra time and thought into the process to truly personalize the favors? Candles can be used in conjunction with a variety of other things such as colorful marbles, sea shells or potpourri, just to name a few.
Picture Perfect
Many couples are opting for true personalization by using photos of themselves in their favors. Pictures can be put into little frames or used in other creative ways such as placed inside snow globes for a winter themed wedding, for example.
Dream Theme
Theme weddings are all the rage with specifically tailored favors to match. Consider the couple getting married in a public zoo that passed out animal crackers wrapped in colorful tulle as their favors. Or the bride and groom who married on the beach and personally collected sand and made decorative candle holders for their guests.
Whether your wedding is being held in a castle right out of a fairy tale or a simpler affair in your own backyard, with a little research and some brainstorming, you can create wedding favors that are as unique and special as you and your beloved are.
