Everyone loves candy, and it is a reasonably inexpensive option to give your guests. 

 

Once wedding I attended had created their own custom labels with details about the bride and groom and the wedding date, and then slipped the labels over Hershey's chocolate bars. 

 

Another common and traditional candy favor is M&M's or Jordan almonds wrapped in a decorative mesh bag,

 

If candy is not your cup of tea and you still want to go the traditional route, your guests might enjoy a nice hand crafted decorative candle, or an engraved candlestick. 

 

These are both nice gifts that will remind your guests of the special day you spent together.

 

 

 

If you have a special book or poem that means a lot to you and your fiancée, consider offering a copy to all of your guests, with a personal inscription or note written on each one.

 

You could have poems printed on nice stationary and then roll them up like a scroll. Use your creativity and there are many inexpensive ideas that your guests will love.

Tie some ribbon onto your wedding favor once you've put it together.

 

You may have pre-printed labels that display your names and the date of importance to remember.

 

If not, you can purchase colorful ribbon from a gift shop.


 

 

These gifts should somehow remind your friends about the memorable day that you would now celebrate as your wedding day forever.

Choose something that has meaning to you and let your wedding theme be also your guide.

 

If your wedding is anchored on a particular theme then you can find seeds that reflect your theme.

 
Flower Wedding Theme
A wedding theme based on flowers is an easy one. You can prepare wedding seed packs of different kind of flowers, you can throw in petunias, sunflowers, snapdragons etc.

 

If your flower theme is focused on a particular flower such as geranium then for variety you can select different colors of geranium like white, violet and blue.

 

For weddings with themes other than flowers, it is still easy to connect the seeds to the theme by placing the wedding seed packets inside a theme decorated wedding favor bags.

 

Samples of wedding seed packs that you may try for different wedding themes:

 

Beach or Seashore Wedding
The best option for beach or seashore theme wedding is going for the shrubs or flowers that grow near seas and oceans.

 

Recommended ones are Bayberry if you favor bushes; Sweet Pea if you like vines or Rosemary if you are a fan of herbs.

 

To create the beach vibe, you can place the seed wedding favors inside miniature pirates' treasure chest, giant sea shells or wedding favor bags decorated with mini seashells.

 

Weddings with a Western flare
Western usually makes one thinks of desert, cowboys and cactus. Desert flowers like Galliarda and Desert Marigold are ideal for this theme. You can put the seed packets in small pots or miniature cowboy hats and distribute these pots all around the venue.

 

Romantic Theme like Valentines or Sweetheart Theme
One of the first choices when presented with Valentines or sweetheart theme is roses, but there are many other flowers that are also just as romantic. You may want to include wedding seed packets of forget-me-nots, bell flowers and sunflowers.

 

Themes Based on Colors
The best wedding seed packs for color based themes are those seeds of flowering plants that are of the same color as your wedding color motif.

 

 If your theme is blue and white, you can select the seeds of white daisies and blue geranium.

 

To make your favors more vibrant you can place the seed packs inside a velvety blue pouch or a wedding favor bags in aqua.

 

Another great color combination would be lavender and gold, this color combination is best reflected by choosing wedding seed favors of violets, purple irises, lilacs placed in golden boxes.

Make sure that you insert an instruction sheet on how to grow and take care of the seeds!

 

Bridesmaids Wedding Theme Favors
When choosing your Bridesmaids wedding theme favors, know whether you would like a favor that can be consumed or something for them to treasure.

 

The choice is yours and there are many things to choose from in either category.

 

There are websites that can give you plenty of options to choose from. For example, if you planned to have a memorable themed wedding, you can get some elegant clutches,chocolate,meaningful wedding jewelry as bridesmaid favors.

 

If your having a summer wedding you can get personalized Ice Cream cone Towels or even some customized Gourmet Coffee.

There are a lot of couples who are planning a wedding on a budget. In this case you will need to go for some discount item. 

 

Yet, planning a wedding on a budget does not mean that you cannot get some beautiful items. You will be able to get something elegant if you can be creative about it. 

 

Here are some things you have to put into consideration.

1.Number of wedding favors - This is not just simply according to your preference. It is also dependent on the type of favor you will be giving. 

 

Also, alcoholic favors for instance, will not be suitable for minors and should only be given to adults. 

 

Finally, if you get edible favors, like cupcakes, you may want to get some extra in case some people decide to eat extra.

 

2.Where to buy - When buying from a local store, make sure they offer delivery even if they are near your area. 

 

Especially for favors that needs to be delivered on the wedding day itself (such as edible favors), delivery is important as you may not be able to arrange pick-up for them. 

 

3.When buying online, check the shipping rates and the taxes that may be applied to your purchase.

 

If you are planning an intimate small wedding, many online favor stores have minimum quantities when ordering wedding favors, so be aware of these restrictions.

 

4.Packaging - Add to your budget the cost of your packaging. Depending on your favor, your packaging can either be a favor box or a favor bag. 

 

You may also want to add ribbons, laces and other embellishments to accessorize your favor. 

 

5.Favor Labels - To make your favors truly personalized, add favor labels. This can either be a mini card, a hang tag or a sticker label. 

 

For hang tags, you will need tags and a special string or use the ribbons itself. For sticker labels, you just need the sticker label itself.  

 

Add a small percentage to your total cost as well if you want the prints to be colored or if you want photos to be incorporated into the design.

 

Remember that wedding favors are not just simple tokens that guests get to take home and remember your wedding. 

 

More importantly, wedding favors are one of the tangible ways you get to say thank you (apart from the thank you notes) to your guests for making your wedding extra special.


Conclusion;
wedding favors are a great way to thank your guests for sharing in your celebration! They're also a fun little extra to tie in the style of the occasion.
