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.
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.
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.
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.
Decide whether you will go for matte, glossy, crystal acrylic look for your favor boxes. To add a unique touch, you can have your choices embossed or you could also try a metal mesh. To further enhance the look of classic boxes, you can use organza ribbons, raffia, silk or paper flowers, decorative butterflies, interlocking wedding rings, hearts, doves, craft pears, sequins, crystals, tassels, customized stickers or labels.
