It's a great idea to personalize your wedding favors with your names, date, and perhaps a little poem or thank you note.
When selecting wedding favors, use your imagination. If you are having a theme wedding, find favors that go with the theme. For instance: if you are going to Hawaii for your honeymoon, give out leis. Be creative! The choice is yours.
Crystal, gold, or silver Wedding bells. Your guests can ring them to initiate the kiss between the bride and groom or as you are announced for the first time as husband and wife.
Picture frames/place card holders can serve for dual purposes: as your wedding favors and to let guests know where they are seated.
Candles and candle holders will not only decorate your reception tables, but they are also useful wedding favors.
Unique place card holders that match your wedding theme, such as flip flops place card holders or Adirondack tea light chairs.
