Between choosing a wedding gown and planning a menu for the guests, some girls forget completely about wedding favors until the last minute. But you must not forget to thank your guests! After all, they will be the ones talking about your wedding for years to come… you want them to remember it fondly, of course. You would be surprised at both thoughtful and affordable wedding favors out there for under two, three, even one dollar. Relax! There is a plan and it can save you both time and money.
Miniature tin favor pails can be found at MyWeddingFavors.com and can brighten up any reception table. Placing these small colorful containers by each guests’ place setting will be a strikingly creative flair that everyone will notice. And if you are worried about your guests not taking these wedding favors home, be sure to personalize their outsides with something memorable.
Wedding Scenario #1
The spring wedding. What makes these tiny pails so equipped for spring weddings? Two reasons: the color and holding abilities. Pastels are frequently used in spring weddings, and these favors come in light blue, lavender, pink, and sage green. Fill these pails with jellybeans, chocolates, almonds, or even sunflower seeds. Thinking about doing something good for the environment and are wondering how? Fill the pails with soil and single flowers like a daffodils or daisies for a too-cute decoration.
Wedding Scenario #2
The beach wedding. Where do you often find pails, anyway? Hmm… making sand castles on the beach of course! Fill your tin favor pails with sand and place a small seashell on top. Now you have given your guests a true piece of the beach to take home. Another idea is to use those clear, colored rocks that are sold in a netted bag in craft stores. The rocks will add bit of sparkle to the table. You may consider adding a small soap or tea light on top of the rocks.
Wedding Scenario #3
The traditional wedding. Tin favor pails can be used for traditional weddings as well. The pails can hold Jordan almonds which represent both the bitterness and sweetness of marriage. Or they make the perfect containers for birdseed and rice which are both used to throw at the couple as they make their way off to the honeymoon. For a more elegant pail, there is also a variety available in white and silver.
