Wedding favors come in all shapes and sizes, but candles can serve as a double-edged sword, as they can be either quirky and fun or repetitive and boring. Don’t cave in to monotony; spruce up your wedding theme by giving your guests candles as favors, and make vibrant selections by choosing from a variety of waxy wonders.

Elegance: Give guests some insight into the sheer royalty that makes you and your partner unique with dainty candles. Wedding cake candles, tuxedo candles and double happiness unity symbol candles will give your guests the token of love they deserve. Personalize them with your wedding date and names.

Aromatherapy: After all of the planning that your loved ones have provided you with for your wedding, reimburse them with aromatherapeutic help. Beautiful candle designs include scented sandlewood candles, frosted votive wedding candles, and scented calla lily wedding cake candles.

Hold It: Give your guests options! Let them decide what kind of candles they’d like to place in their beautiful new candle holders. Ideas include wedding bell place card and candle holders, fairy tale-themed castle candle  holders, and a double heart candle holder, which will express your eternal love.

How to Remain Stylishly Budget-Friendly When Planning Your Wedding

Posted in Affordable Wedding Favors tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:51 pm by Favor Warehouse

We’ve all seen (and envied) those exorbitant weddings strewn about on television, and perhaps have participated in a couple.  Nowadays, it’s not uncommon for a bride-to-be to spare little to no expense when planning her big day.  However, just because economizing has become more important lately, that doesn’t mean that you have to scrimp on your wedding extravaganza.

You Name It, We Frame It

According to celebrity insiders, the choice favor of celebs including Britney Spears and Shaquille O’Neill is picture frames, as it compliments everyones tastes, captures the moment and adds personality. Invitations, photos of the couple or from the event can later be added to the guests’ liking. Many wedding favor websites offer a plethora of frames that range in size and style, and can melt the heart of any bride, groom or guest.

Diva Fever

Personalized favors are always appreciated, because they reflect character; and for the bride whose guests are as character-oriented as she is, kitschy and stylish favors may be in order. Celebrate your wedding day in the spirit of celebritydom: Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman gave their guests personalized clocks with the message “A Moment in Time,” while John and Rebecca Romjin-Stamos created potpourri hangers with a photo of themselves and the message “Our Love Will Last Forever” inside. Show your guests your unique flair with your favors by personalizing your favors before your big day.

For the cover-girl bride, personalized lip balms, compact mirrors and scented bath salts are great favors to keep your guests refreshed after the festivities.

Believe in the Season – Discount Wedding Favors for Every Season

Summer: This is the “it” season for weddings. Let guests know that you care with personalized iced tea packets, or key chains. Both are hot for the summer wedding season, and tre’ affordable.

Fall: Don’t worry, girls, just because you plan a fall wedding doesn’t mean every idea must be pumpkin-oriented. Autumn weddings inspire color and flashiness, and this will be what your guests will look forward to in the theme of your wedding, and what they will expect in their favors. Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler celebrated their nuptials in an unconventional way when they evoked the spirit of Halloween and fashioned their wedding after The Nightmare Before Christmas. Follow the same trend in an affordable way by giving out personalized chocolates for $2.49 a pop or other fine treats as fall favors.

Winter: Take a cue from Christina Aguilera and Katie Holmes, who knew that walking in a winter wonderland was a nice way to take those steps down the aisle, but spare yourself an arm and a leg by celebrating in a venue that will allow you to incorporate Christmas decor, so that you can recycle the decorations for years to come.  This idea also applies to the favors that you bestow upon your guests, become a Santa Claus of sorts! They can use the beautiful winter coasters  and Winter Wonderland wine stoppers  for the entire season.

Spring: April showers bring May…weddings! Brides-to-be everywhere are springing to book venues for their weddings, and will spare no expense for their events to be the best. Know that it doesn’t take millions to make your wedding successful. Keep guests happy with a fun-filled wedding and thoughtful favors!  Lavender soap tulips will keep even the pickiest guest content while you can never go wrong with silver rose card holders!

In closing, finding cheap wedding favors and having a stylish wedding are not mutually exclusive. With a little research and creativity you can accomplish both at the same time.
