The key is to have favors small enough to fit in your wedding favor boxes. Other alternatives could include a bottle stopper, a pack of playing cards, a shot glass, a wine glass charm, a small jar of homemade jam. These favors are a fun reminder for your guests of your big day, pick something that is special to you, and your guests will be sure to love it as well.
Remember to stick to your wedding theme and colors when sourcing your boxes. Favor boxes can really make a statement in your wedding venue so make sure you pick boxes that are the same or tone with your wedding colors. Choose decorations that fit with your theme, paper flowers can be purchased in lots of varieties so choose your wedding flowers if you can find them to make your boxes extra special.
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.
It is also important to know that the printing profession has evolved; there are numerous designs and printing options you can have for any item you want to package. For wedding cards, one of the most sort after ways of customizing the wedding card boxes, is by having a wedding picture of the couple on it. This can be amazing, you can also add the names together with the wedding date with quality ink that will give that artistic expression on the boxes. When designing your wedding cards, it is very important to remember to have a slit on it, where you can slip in the greeting cards. You can also add decorative accessories like brooches, paper as well as fabric flowers, glittery laces, bows and ribbons; these can all be added to the wedding card boxes, to make them more attractive.
If time allows and you have a creative streak, get busy with your glitter pen and write each guests name on their favor box. Not only will this add some sparkle to your wedding table but they can also double up as place cards.
