Beach Wedding Favor

Giving out a beach wedding favor is a good way to show off your wedding theme in a nice gift for your guests. If you are planning to hold your wedding on the beach or are simply planning to incorporate a beach theme into your wedding it makes sense to give out wedding favors which reflect the beach theme.

If you decide against using beach favors, the favors will not likely trigger memories of your wedding for your guests. Using a beach wedding favor greatly helps create stronger memories of the wedding you’re your guests. When they are at the beach and see you get married and have a beach themed memento they are more likely to remember the wedding in detail, as will you.

One great idea for a beach wedding favor is seashells. Seashells are beautiful and unique. You can either order them in bulk from a supplier or you can go to the beach that you are getting married at and choose your for the beach wedding favor own to plan for the wedding. If you choose the second method you can be more selective about the seashells you give and the gift will certainly be more personal, as you handpicked each gift. You could even attach a note about how you picked each seashell especially for all your family and friends.

A cute idea is a votive candle holder decorated to look like a beach pail. If you are leaning towards giving away candles there are many different beach designs you could give such as seashells, flip flops and dolphins, however once the candle is burnt down the favor is gone forever. However if you choose to give away a votive holder instead, your guests will be able to reuse this beach wedding favor forever. You could give the votive holder alone, with a plain white or colored candle to match your wedding colors, or you could get votive candles made which are personalized with your names and wedding date.

Are you looking for a more simple favor, how about choosing to give beach themed bookmarks to your friends and family? You can pick one design or several appropriate ones and have them made into nice bookmarks which you can then personalize with your names and wedding date. Bookmarks are a perfect beach wedding favor as one of the wonderful things we love to do one the beach is relax and read a nice summer novel.
