Enhance your Beach Wedding Theme with Favor Decorations
Who doesn’t love the beach? Okay, so there are a few who don’t but most people would love to be in, on or near the water. Being near the sea brings to mind fond memories of vacations that were spent swimming and walking along the beach while the sun sets.
This is why beach weddings are so popular. They give the couple and their guests the notion of being on a holiday and away from their normal busy lives. If you’re having a wedding by the beach or one with a nautical theme, wouldn’t it be nice if your guests can bring home something that gives them that nice feeling of nostalgia?
If you’re still having some problems deciding on the gifts to give your guests, go over these options to help make your task easier:
There will always be a place for those precious moments on print. Give your guests these beautiful frames to make your wedding a happy reminder of fun times.
If your guests have athletic, outgoing or artistic personalities, present them with something that will show their individuality. There are mini athletic bags, bottle holders, craft punchers, and many others that you can choose from.
Whether your guests will utilize these for functional or ornamental purposes, candles are always a good giveaway alternative. Choose from different candles in the shape of starfish, flip-flops and mini kissing fish – all reminiscent of that holiday at the beach.
The fridge is such an indispensable household contraption but it does more than keep your food fresh. Either it serves as a huge canvas for your creative ideas or it could also function as a reminders board. Hand out nautical-inspired magnets to keep your guests’ art and paperwork firmly in place.
Do you want your guests to treasure your wedding favors? Give them something that they’ll find useful. Flip-flops and sunglasses are great presents because your guests can wear them the next time they go to the beach. They can even bring a single-use camera and Frisbee. You can also provide notepads or mini key holders shaped like flip-flops.
There are boxes in various beach theme designs in which your guests can store their odds and ends. Hand fans are especially useful in keeping you cooled on hot summer days (or nights); any kitchen will find bottle openers, and wine stoppers as helpful additions.
The list goes on but the best thing about giving practical wedding favors is that your guests can truly appreciate the thought you put into selecting something that they can use beyond your wedding day.
Finally, before deciding what to give your guests ask yourself these questions:
Will (name of guest here) like the favor?
Will he/she have any use for the favor?
Will the gift even survive the trip to the guest’s home and not be discarded en route?
If you answered “Yes” to all the questions, then you can start preparing the favors but if you answered “No” to any of them, maybe you need to review your options once more. There are so many favors to choose from that the most difficult decision you may be faced with is selecting what’s best among equally beautiful alternatives.
