Coordinating wedding favors with your reception can be lots of fun, but it will also require some planning to make sure your reception looks fabulous.
When you dream of your perfect wedding and reception, you probably imagine a beautiful scene where everything goes together just perfectly, including your wedding favors. But your dream wedding will not come together perfectly by accident. It takes hours and hours of hard work and planning to create a beautiful wedding and a reception. When planning your wedding reception, it helps to have a cohesive theme established so you can naturally coordinate flowers, fabrics, decorations, and even wedding favors around it. Having a theme doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go crazy and make everything in your wedding and reception based on a specific theme. Your theme can be as simple as a common color pattern or fabric scheme, or as intricate as a seashell theme beach wedding. Regardless of what you choose, using a theme is the best place to start planning for your wedding favors. For example, if your theme is a classically elegant black and white wedding, your wedding favors should be planned along those lines as well.
If you are having a destination wedding, use this to your full advantage and plan some unique wedding favors that go with your wedding destination. For a beach theme, you can use wedding favors with seashells, beach chairs, or even flip-flops. You will have to get creative for many locations, but guests will love wedding favors that remind them of your beautiful destination wedding. You can even coordinate your wedding favors based on the season of your wedding. Take full advantage of companies and services that make it easy to create customized wedding favors. Custom candles make adorable decorations on the tables at your reception, and they can be matched to just about any wedding theme or reception décor you have in mind. If you are having trouble finding wedding favors that tie well into your reception, you cannot go wrong by choosing personalized wine glasses or custom bottle openers. Wine glasses are practical because your guests need something to drink with, and they make wonderful keepsakes to take home.
When you are choosing wedding favors, remember to have fun with it, and work with what you’ve already planned so far. Find something that coordinates with your destination, the season of your wedding, or your overall theme, and your guests will love the creativity you utilized in picking out their wedding favors.
