Have you always dreamed of your wedding taking place on a warm, sunny beautiful day in June?
Summer is a very popular time of the year to get married, and creativity is a must in choosing a theme. Intense preparations must be made to ensure that your big day is met with perfection.
If you are dreaming of a summer wedding, some themes you may consider are beach, garden, and tropical. The beach theme is a summer classic and beach wedding favors can be purchased anywhere. Think beach balls, potted flowers big in size, or daisy chains. If summer is reminiscent of a certain vacation spot for you, order flowers or plants from the surrounding area.
Going tropical? This idea is excellent especially if you are planning to have your honeymoon in a place like Hawaii or the Caribbean. Some tropical wedding favors you may wish to have are leis, coconut cups, sunglasses, or plastic cocktail cups. Consider asking your guests to wear Hawaiian print shirts or even grass skirts for a fun, whimsical feel.
Maybe you’re taking the tropical theme a step further to showcase your love of ocean life. For this theme, cheap wedding favor possibilities are endless. For a cost-effective ocean wedding favor, purchase some cheap net from a craft store. Fill pieces of the net with plastic starfish, seahorses, or dolphins. You can even use live fish in cups for wedding favors. Goldfish are extremely cheap and are sure to be a hit with the kids at your reception.
Who wouldn’t love a wedding with live doves released at the moment of union? Many couples view a dove-themed wedding as a ceremony of peace. Ideas for dove-themed wedding favors may include lacy white cones filled with birdseed, bottles of bubbles with a dove on top, and as an edible option, dove-shaped cookies.
For a garden theme, there are several wedding favor ideas. On the reception tables, have topiary place card holders. Order personalized seed bags for each of your guests, and add on miniature watering cans for fun and cheap wedding favors. For elegance, have rose petals sprinkled on your tables as well as freeze-dried rose petals for a homemade wedding favor. If you are having an outdoor wedding, paper fans would be optimum for your guests to use during the reception and take home with them as a memory of your wedding.
