You may also prefer your boxes to be handmade to suit with your DIY wedding favors. If you have enough time and a flair for this, you can buy the required materials and artistically create your own wedding favor boxes.
White and ivory are two of the most popular colors used for classic wedding favors, but if you are looking for some other options, you can virtually find any color that will complement you wedding color scheme. There are so many collections that offer cute boxes in translucent, pastel, bright, deep, gold, silver colors.
Favor boxes can be easily personalized these days. A lot of print firms offer this service at very reasonable prices. This may be something that your favor box supplier can organize. You can't fit many words on a favor box so, perhaps, just your names and wedding date will suffice. There is often the option to add a symbol to the box, a butterfly, love heart, wedding bell to name a few. For a little extra cost this can really make the difference between plain boxes and boxes with real flair!
If your chosen boxes aren't the right shape to personalize you could choose to purchase personalized ribbon. This can be bought in lots of colors and textures, from silk ribbon to chiffon or glossy. Wrapped around any shape or size of box this is sure to look wonderful and if done in a bright color will really add flair to your wedding favors.
Don't forget to be creative with your filling as well. Chocolates are always appreciated but if you chose sugar coated chocolates with a color to match the box they will be extra special. Place them in coordinated tissue paper to really bring everything together. If you are on a budget you could get together with friends for a truffle making afternoon. These are fun to make and will save you lots of money on your favor fillings. Make sure to let your guests know with a little note that they are handmade especially for them.
