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.
All elegant events have theme colors. Your wedding must also have one. It may be a combination of golden and royal blue, or red and white or anything else you like. The colors of the favor boxes for weddings should suit the theme.
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.
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.
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.
