Wedding Party Favors

Updated on January 11, 2015

Weddings Start With The Bride and Groom

The wedding party starts with the Bride and Groom but involves a whole host of people no matter what size wedding you are planning!

Parents become Mother of the Bride and Groom or Father of the Bride and Groom, sisters become Maid and Matrons of Honor and brothers become the Best Man, ushers or attendants for the Groom.

Close friends become bridesmaids and attendants and all the rest of the friend circuit become invited guests. Nieces, nephews, little brothers and sisters become flower girls and ring bearers.

Every guest who gets an invitation becomes another reason to get the best favors and keepsakes so your party is a celebration to remember forever.

Wedding favors aren't just candy, mints, candles and picture frames, they are keepsakes personalized to your unique style that your guests will take home and talk about for years to come.

Sharing The Love

Party goodies for weddings, birthdays, holidays and all special events are a great way to share your love and say thank you to those that are celebrating with you. The Mother of the Bride and Sister of the Bride play a very special role in planning the party and making sure everything goes perfect for the Bride on her big day.

Favors are fun for the guests but can also be a beautiful part of your table settings or adorn a separate table where your guest book or place cards might be. Beautiful classy black and white boxes, tuxedo and wedding gown theme boxes and adorable lace bags are perfect to hold little thank you gifts for every guest. Whether you choose candies or candles, frames or any of the fun wonderful personalized presents, they are even more special wrapped up in wedding designs.

Save The Date Wedding and Party Planners

Save the Date wedding and party cards, magnets, postcards and cards are a wonderful way to let your family and friends know that your date is set, your reception hall booked and even though it's too soon to send your invitations, you want them to mark your special day on their calendar so they can plan ahead.

They are a really fun way to make sure all of your guests won't have something else to do and will be ready to party when you are!

Special Occasions Are Fun

Party goodies are for all occasions and start before you were even born! Baby shower favors to welcome your birth, birthday party favors for all the friends who come to your party, Bar Mitzvah favors and keepsakes that continue on to Sweet 16's, graduation and even "Over The Hill" party favors are always the hit of the event.

Theme parties and wedding favor themes especially are fun and reflect the personality of the party givers. The guests love to join in and themed party favors come in all shapes and sizes. There are great stores online, catalogs and in the malls that carry every type of small thank you gifts for guests you can imagine. Many of them can be personalized with your names, wedding dates and special message of thanks. Favors can be expensive or do it yourself handcrafted. Fun favors are often a little of both, purchased presents hand wrapped in bags, boxes and sachets.

The ultimate favor is personalized and unique, really something to keep your guests talking about!

Valentine's Day Weddings

Getting married on Valentine's Day means you must be the ultimate romantic couple and it is the perfect time to marry your sweetheart on this special day made for love!

Personalize your wedding on Valentine's Day with hearts for the bride, groom and all of the guests. Chocolate hearts and romantic dreamy flowers everywhere!

Love Is Not A Favor, It Is A Gift From The Heart

— Me

Champagne Wedding Toast

Anyone who's been to a wedding has heard someone give a wedding toast at the reception. Very often it's given by the father of the bride, the best man, or a close friend or relative of the bride or groom.

The wedding toast should be affectionate, related to the joy of the bride and groom but sometimes the wedding toast goes wrong! Those who make the toast and are a little drunk can create everything from scandal to disgust! Some are embarrassing trying too hard to be personal or funny. The wrong wedding toast will keep your guests talking for a long time, but you may wish they would just forget about it.

The right champagne toast though touches people's hearts and sets the mood for the happiness and wedding party celebration.

Bridal Showers

It is a lovely idea to get a special gift for family and close friends to surprise them with along with all of the other wonderful favors especially at parties before the wedding like the traditional engagement parties or bridal showers. Rehearsal dinners are also a great time to share something special with those closest to the Bride and Groom.

Personalized Save The Date Cards, Stickers and Stamps

Don't just tell your guests to Save The Date, send unique and personalized cards they just can't forget and will love to hang on their refrigerators and bulletin boards. Check out some of my recommendations:

Wedding Showers And Announcements

Your wedding invitation is the first impression you give your guests about your special day. Whether you choose traditional invites, embossed, photo invitations, fold-over or even print at home invitations there are so many beautiful styles, sizes and personalized invitation options to choose from.

Wedding Theme Place Card Holders

Adding the small touches of class can really bring out a wedding theme. Adorable little wedding bells, place cards and holders and favors for everyone are sure to please your guests. My favorites are the place card holders that are also adorable favors for your guests. They can take them home and put a photo of your wedding and keep the memory of your special day close for years to come.

Classic Wedding Favor Gift Ideas

Classic bridal party favors are a great way to share the fun and also thank the bridal party that are celebrating with you. It is a tradition to treat your wedding attendants to even more special gifts than just favors even before the wedding day. Treat yourself, your Maid and Matron of Honor as well as Bridesmaids and Flower Girls to tote bags, t-shirts and hoodies that proclaim their special place in your wedding.

Beach Themes and Sea Shell Weddings

Everyone loves the beach and some people choose to have beach weddings or even tropical destination weddings where sea shells, starfish and even flip flops are perfect for theme weddings like those.

Mix and match fun favors for guests like chocolate sea shells and photo frames adorned with fish and sunshine and tropical flowers, trees and oceans of love.

From personalized wedding invitations, place card holders and eternity candles to jewelry and accessories you can really bring the beach to your wedding, even if your wedding is not really at the beach.

Consider scented candles, photo frames and even candy favors for your guests to enjoy and take home.

Personalize labels for small wine bottles, tea bags and even coffee scoops and candy bars with your own photos and message and of course your wedding date to say Thank You to your guests for having so much fun and sharing in your love on this wonderful special day.

Write It Down!
