Wedding favors with a hint of nostalgia can really help create a romantic, peaceful mood at your wedding reception. For whatever reason, nostalgia seems to captivate us and make us view past eras as simpler, more carefree times. There is something timeless and romantic about nostalgic decor, and incorporating it into your wedding reception can transform the entire look and feel of your big day.
Here are some wedding favor themes that will really take your guests back:
Old Hollywood—Anything Old Hollywood is nostalgic by nature. Hollywood of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s was such a glamorous, romantic place. From the clothing and the style of films to the iconic movie stars, Old Hollywood will always encapsulate the essence of those glamorous eras of the past. Try drive-in movie theme place card holders or old film reel candy tins for your wedding favors.
Retro Throwback—Another fun wedding favor theme you can use to add a little nostalgic touch to your big day is retro throwback. Choose wedding favors with jukebox or record player accents. You can also find gumball slot machine favors and teapot tea infusers that come packaged in retro kitchen style boxes.
Timeless Tunes—Here’s another great wedding favor theme to consider to add a touch of nostalgia to your big day. Make CD or MP3 playlists of your favorite golden oldies and give each guest a copy to take home. You can even request that your DJ play the songs on the mix during the reception.
Vintage Candies—Candies always make great wedding favor ideas, and using a vintage candy wedding favor theme is the perfect way to create a nostalgic feel at your wedding reception. Try rock candy, classic wrapped caramel, or taffy wedding favors to create an old-fashioned ambience.
