Wedding Favors for a beach wedding

Wedding favors assembly is my favorite part of wedding planning. I have made wedding favors for my own wedding and helped a couple of my friends come up with ideas and put together their gifts for wedding guests. I have mentioned that I had a beach wedding. For beach wedding gifts, we used a handful of sea shells, wrapped in fish net, and tied with a hemp cord with tiny sea shells glued to the ends. We also attached a decorative tag with our names and wedding date on it. Below you will find the supplies that will come handy for the DIY project. And remember that you don't have to do it all alone - get all wedding favor components and supplies together, invite friends and family, and host a wedding favors assembly party.

      I just remembered that you live with plenty of beach all around you and this is the season for those beach weddings....lovely ideas for favors that will bring back sweet memories of the special day. I love those flip flop bottle openers and this is the first time I've ever seen them. The sandalwood fans are a very nice touch to treat the guests too and after can be fanned out as a display, maybe with a candle behind it. Very thoughtful and fun little gifts that are sure to be appreciated by all. I have a cousin who had a beach wedding in Hawaii but I didn't get to go to that but the pictures are so nice, I love an outdoor long as it doesn't rain! :)
