Planning a wedding can be full of delight as well as frustration. If you are a lucky bride-to-be (or lucky wedding planner), then you have six months or maybe even a year to decide on your dress, cake, and music. Or perhaps you are in a rush to throw everything together in three months. Whatever the case may be you will eventually spend some time deciding on wedding favors, and that is where the wedding specialists at Classy Favors can be your own personal guide to choosing great favors.
Candle with Personalized Matches
If elegance is an important wedding factor to you, then this is one of the most classy favors you can give to your guests. For formal black and white weddings, give cream colored candles as favors. You can either tie a simple black ribbon around the middle of the candle, or you can use netting for a bold presentation. Personalized matches are easily found at most major wedding vendors, and they are super-easy to attach. Using adhesive squares, (can be found at dollar stores for one dollar) place one or two on the back of the matches and then on the candle. No mess, and looks very sleek.
Sunshades & Sunblock
Beach favors are great for spring and summer wedding events. Plus, beach wedding parties tend to be more relaxed than traditional receptions. One great idea to protect your guests from the sun is to purchase those small sunscreen bottles on key chains. You can find them at stores like Wal-Mart or Target and they are an affordable choice for your main wedding favor. For a charming display, place the sunblock and sunglasses in small, cheap baskets filled with colored rocks (craft stores) or straw filling. Perfect on your reception tables!
Exotic Coffee & Tea Samples
I find that this wedding favor is most enjoyed by guests when there is a sample of both tea and coffee. That way your guests can try a flavor that may be new to them. MyWeddingFavors.com is a wonderful place to purchase your tea and coffee favors. They offer a variety of flavors, as well as attractive packaging. You can opt for plain bags as well, and use your own ideas for how to display them, like coffee mugs or ceramic dishes. This is a great year-round, cheap wedding favor that is sure to satisfy your crowd. If you have children attending your wedding, you may consider placing some candy or cookie wedding favors as well.
