Wedding favors can come in a wide variety of different forms. There can be edible favors, seasonal and even personalized favors and may range from personal fans to mini bird nests.
The theme carried by the wedding favors should coincide with the theme of your wedding if you have one, and the colors should be similar. The favor boxes can be anything from a simple box tied with color coordinated ribbons to specially designed boxes that choose.
Edible wedding favors can include chocolate bars with specially printed labels depicting the names of the bride and groom along with the date of the big day, or can even include chocolate truffles decorated with the bride and grooms initials. The choices are many along this line and will depend largely on what you as the bride want to present.
Gadgets and novelties are also becoming popular and mini gumball slot machines have even been seen at some weddings. A popular choice for wedding favors today are mint tins that have been personalized with the bride and groom names on them saying something like “Julies and Jack” or whatever the names happen to be along with the date.
Thing is, as previously mentioned, it depends on what the bride wants to present, and the theme will also play a big part in the decision as well. At one wedding, in which the wedding was to have a Las Vegas Casino style theme, the Gumball slot machines were used along with other decorations to be given as wedding shower favors. Yet another wedding shower, used chocolate truffles for wedding favors, and they were decorated with images of wedding cakes and wedding rings.
Wedding favors can be obtained relative cheaply if you shop carefully and use all available resources. With proper research, you’ll find that many of these things can be purchased at only a few cents per each piece, though depending on the complexity of the item some pieces can reach as high as $3.00 or more per item.
Shop carefully and you’ll be able to find exactly what you want at prices that are within the budget. Not only can wedding favors be found online, but there are many small shops and boutiques that specialize in these types of things, and prices as previously mentioned are generally pretty reasonable, again, depending on what you are looking for.
No matter what theme you decide to settle on, you can be sure that wedding favors can be found rather easily to add to the décor, and if there is an item you would like to have, but can’t seem to find it anywhere, they can be easily made. Your local library, and even online, you’ll find plenty of resources and ideas to pull of the perfect wedding. Don’t forget the bridal magazines as well for some great ideas. You don’t have to copy what they do. Take several ideas and put them all together to come up with a truly unique setting.
