Looking for a way to move beyond the typical favors such as hearts and candy? Unique wedding favors based on the season in which you’re married really strike a chord. Each season gives you a variety of ideas to choose from. By bringing the outdoors in, you add natural beauty to your decorations and provide a one-of-a-kind gift for your guests.
Winter Snowflakes Add a Little Magic
Winter brings thoughts of the holidays as well as the joy and excitement that come with them. A tree and stocking might remind you of Christmas, while a menorah conjures visions of Hanukah. But no matter what holiday you celebrate, the snowflake is traditionally a symbol of the winter season making it perfect for inclusion on unique wedding favors. Snowflake candleholders with frosted glass add a touch of elegance and create a warm glow whether at your reception or in the homes of your guests. Glass coasters with delicate etchings of snowflakes are both useful and beautiful. There are also dainty snowflake bookmarks, functional bottle stoppers and handy key rings.
Spring Flowers Give a Fresh Atmosphere
As flowers begin to bloom we realize the winter chill is gone and the beauty of spring is before us. Real flowers are gorgeous and an important part of your wedding, but they can also be quite costly. To keep the flower theme going without breaking the bank try using candle lamps with a flower motif. Candle lamps are becoming more and more popular at weddings and showers alike. Whether ivory resin or frosted glass, these lamps add style to any area and make delightful and unique wedding favors.
Wildflower seed packets are another option your guests will enjoy. Each spring as the flowers bloom, your friends and family will be reminded of you. Include a small terracotta pot and mini-spade for a complete package.
Summer Beaches Let the Sunshine In
We all love to head ocean side when the summer sun begins to warm things up. Invite your guests to join you vicariously with nautical wedding favors. Adorable seashell picture frames make cute favors and can also be used as decorations during your reception. Take pictures of you and your groom at the beach or lake, put them in the frames and place the frames throughout the reception area for your guests to see. Beach-themed disposable cameras can be left on tables for your guests to use and leave for you, or to take home to enjoy themselves. Other unique wedding favors include delightful shell or nautical candles as well as bookmarks, magnets and photo albums with beach motifs.
Fall Leaves Are Bursting With Color
With autumn comes the beautiful colors of fall leaves. Dainty tea light candles with colorful leaves are always attractive and affordable. Soap petals in the shapes and colors of those breathtaking leaves are a great idea for decorations or gifts. Maple-leaf-shaped cookie cutters also make unique wedding favors. Other possibilities include mini-photo albums or photo-inserted glass coasters, each decorated with lovely fall foliage.
Why settle for the ordinary when unique wedding favors that reflect each season can add so much flair to your special day? Take a walk outside and jot notes about what you find most beautiful and interesting. Then choose favors that reflect your seasonal passions. Your guests will never forget it!
