Coordinating Wedding Favors with Your Fabulous Theme

Posted in celebrity weddings, Themed Favors, Wedding Favors tagged , , , , , , , , , , at 7:07 pm by Favor Warehouse

Let’s face it; themed wedding parties tow a fine line between A-List classy and oh-so-tacky. The difference is in the delivery, and in the design. Throwing a wedding with a twist will make yours an event that guests will never forget, and giving them favors that coincide with your wedding’s fabulous flair will provide a tangible treat, something extra that will help them to remember the occasion forever.

Happily Ever After

A Very Important Date: When opting for a themed wedding, go for something whimsical; Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson‘s wedding was a goth-inspired tribute to their love for each other and the literary classic Alice in Wonderland. When going this route, treat your guests to something reminiscent of the fairy tale with cutesey decor like cupcake place card holders, personalized picture cookies and Wonderland tea bags.

A Wish Your Heart Makes: For the Cinderella in you, go for elegance and grace, while putting your own spin on your event. Show your guests the royalty that lies within us all with pewter pumpkin coach picture frames, coach design candles and your very own fairy tale guest book.

Love, Naturally

Nature-themed weddings have been a big hit during the warmer months. With your wedding, you’ll be expected as newlyweds to spread love; but spreading some wildflower seeds wouldn’t hurt, either.

Go Green: Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller‘s wedding set the trend for newlyweds embracing nature. While many are making the environmentally conscious shift for their big day, some newlyweds-to-be are afraid that going green for their wedding will mean shelling out tons of the stuff. Have no fear, natural selections favors are budget-friendly, and favors like rattan design cinnamon stick candles, green tea, and calla lily coasters will brighten spirits.

Destination Wedding: The isle resort you wanted your aisle to be in may have been overbooked, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat your guests to sandy beaches and summertime festivities. Give them something to remember from your summer-themed wedding with kitschy beach themed picture frames, starfish wine stoppers and bottle openers or summertime themed candle holders.

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.
