If you don't like the offered embellishments try to order the box just plain and make some DIY embellishment. Is the wedding on the beach why not embellish each design individually with sea shells or sea horses? If the designer working on your invitations does not have the embellishment you desire, try eBay, you can often buy them there in small qualities but at very low price. But don't forget, real Czech rhinestone brooches have their price so be prepared to spend more for long lasting quality.
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.
We totally love embroidered wedding invitation boxes. Each box would then be embroidered with your initials or custom design. And for everyone that loves crystals the new trend are embellished designs featuring rhinestone crystal buckle, crystal brooches or fine satin silk bows. Make sure the buckle is not too big, it might look nice but you have to consider that each single box needs to be posted to the guest and you don't want to end up paying a fortune on delivery cost of bulky invites.
Options like plastic bags are a great idea to hold wedding keepsakes, and these bags can be very stylish where you can easily decorate it as creatively as you want. Also, another good thing about plastic bags is, they can make a great and affordable option for those that have a tight budget. Basic items included in these small bags are candles, soaps, edibles and more.
M&Ms are an ever-popular choice, because you can actually order them in any color you wish and include personal messages or names on them. Perhaps order M&Ms in your wedding theme colors with the bride and groom's names on each candy. After you have picked your candy out, put a few pieces into a little square of tulle and tie the top off with a matching ribbon. This is simple and easy to do, but always turns out really pretty! Other obvious wedding-themed edible treats are Hershey's kisses and conversation hearts. Mints are also a good idea, they are pretty and also provide guests with an after-dinner treat!
