Summer Wedding Favors

You are getting married this Summer. Maybe you're traditional. Maybe you just enjoy the greater convenience of a summer wedding. Or, perhaps you chose the date because it represents something personal. Whatever the reason, planning a summer wedding gives you thousands of choices. That extends to summer wedding favors that will delight your guests.

The variety of activities enjoyed during Summer opens up an array of themes to incorporate into a summer wedding favor.

Summer flowers are a delight at any wedding. Continuing that look to decorate the table and provide a small gift for guests is a great idea. Small flower holders, perhaps personalized with the bride and groom's names and the date is one way to do so. Fill the little vase with silk summer roses and you've got a hit.

Imagine sailing over the lake near your honeymoon cottage. Use that image in your summer wedding favors. A small glass sailboat with a logo that evokes a wedding can be the perfect choice. Add to the scene with some small, colorful beach balls and you've got a 'mini movie' worthy of your wedding.

Keep that ball rolling by pairing it with some delightful handcrafted starfish and clams. Decorate the table with a tiny marble sand crab and you'll give your guests a gift they'll remember long after the special day.

Maybe you're heading out to a tropical island for your honeymoon vacation. Perfect. Sea breezes, water sports, lazing in the sun. Provide your guests with miniature reminders of the joy to come. A tiny golf bag and clubs will amuse many. Or, select some pineapple-themed name card holders. Toss into the little sandbox some flip flop leather keychains in Hawaiian colors.

Everyone likes photo frames. Fill them with a picture of the bride and groom the day they got engaged. Complete the setting with a sea shell lining around the rim.  Add a miniature surfboard of the type the happy couple shared on that happy day. Or, opt for a miniature copy of the bucket they used to build a sandcastle. Here, those could be in the form of a candle holder.

Maybe the forest is more your style of outdoor atmosphere. You may be planning to stay in a Bed and Breakfast in the Black Forest of Germany or the mountains of Montana. Reflect that in your summer wedding favors.

Mini-lanterns that hold a bulb or candle can light your guests' way to the table. Provide miniature pine trees or redwoods with little cabins at the base for your guests' wedding favors. Or, give tiny ceramic horses of the type you and your future spouse will ride during that dream vacation trip. They'll delight in taking them home as a memento of your wedding day.

The possibilities are endless. But no matter which summer wedding favors you choose you can't go wrong. Every guest will be happy with the summer wedding favor you select because it will remind them of the joy they shared with you that special day.
