Fairytale Wedding Favor Ideas
What do you think of fairytale weddings?
Every bride wants their wedding to be a day right out of a princess movie. This includes lots of beautiful details, including sparkles, shimmer and elegance.
For your wedding, you’ll also want to include fairytale wedding favors for the guests that remind them of just how picturesque your day was.
Everything that glitters is fair game at a fairytale wedding. You can find magic wands in toy stores that are miniature sized and practically dripping with glitter. They’d look perfect at the reception tables. You can also find oversized diamond rings that you can knot the napkins through, so they’ll double as napkin holders and wedding favors. Some rings even come as keychains or paperweights, so they’re useful and decorative.
If you can’t find the shiny or glittery object you want, why not make it yourself? You can buy inexpensive photo frames in heart shapes, paint them with glue and dip in glitter. Stick a cute photo of you and your fiancé in it and you’re ready to go. You really can't go wrong with glitter as one of your main wedding fairytale accessories.
The Glass Slipper
Favor companies have caught on that brides want dreamy favors at their tables. Now you can buy “glass” slippers just like Cinderella’s that are darling at each place setting. Some even light up! You can also get glass slipper decorated cookies frosted in white, and candles where the whole shoe is a 3-dimensional slipper. You can buy plastic glass slippers in bulk and fill them with candy for the guests, and they even come in tints of blue and pink. So cute!

Ah, what bride hasn’t fallen in love with the romantic rose? You can find many rose-shaped favors, from place card holders to frames and candles to candies. But you might want to splurge—it is your fairytale day after all—and make tiny bouquets of miniature roses for each place setting. You can tie them in sheer glittery ribbon. Just make sure if they are live you make them the day before and keep them in water for freshness.

Which 'tiny gown' idea to you like best?
You can find gown replicas in everything from cookies to salt and pepper shakers. Brownie pops, and cake pop gifts even come dressed as bride and groom. Along with these dessert gifts, you can also find gown bookmarks and candles shaped as a fully-fashioned gown.
Your guests will love the reminder of your gown when they look at their favors, unless of course they eat them first!

Wherever you choose to use a castle, it will remind everyone of how regal and elegant your wedding was. These are practical as well, as your guests can use them well after the wedding.
