Are you planning a fairy tale theme wedding? It’s one of the most popular wedding themes these days. Even Ashlee Simpson had an Alice in Wonderland wedding.
For a fairy tale wedding, pick appropriate wedding favors that feature castles, coaches and glass slippers. One of my favorites is this glass candle holder with its adorable pumpkin coach. It’s adorable and affordable.
An eco-friendly idea for wedding favors is to buy mini potted plants and decorate the terracota pots with the names of each guest.
You can choose flowering plants, mini bamboo trees, cactus or whatever you like. During the wedding, you can use them as place cards and then afterwards guests can take them home as wedding favors. Functional, fun and eco-friendly too!
Are you getting married this winter? It’s not too late to order your wedding favors. For a winter wedding, choose favors that incorporate a snowy theme. These crystal snowflake glass coasters are a perfect choice.
These beautiful coasters are functional and stylish – plus, they are affordable. At about $2 for a set of four, you can’t beat the price. Order your wedding favor coasters now from Truly Wedding Favors.
I always find it interesting to see what couples choose as wedding favors. Some give trinkets, some give candies and others give really cute, functional favors. I went to a wedding last month where the couple gave a scratch off lottery ticket to each guest.
To me, it seemed like they forgot to get favors so they just ran out and got 200 lottery tickets at the last minute. So, what do you think is a dollar lottery ticket a tacky choice in wedding favors? Or it a fun idea to give your guests a chance to win a big prize?
Garden weddings have become more and more popular in recent years. For couples who love the outdoors, it is simply the perfect opportunity to add a memorable backdrop to your wedding.
When planning a garden wedding, you should incorporate the garden theme into all aspects of the wedding from the decorations to the menu. What you want to have in mind is a classic garden picnic – but on a larger scale.
For tables, consider using large round tables that seat up to ten people. Each table should have an umbrella. The umbrellas should be light in color for fresh and lively appeal. For centerpieces, you can make a decoration that includes both flowers and fruits. To carry the flowers and fruits, consider using something you might find in a garden like a fruit basket or a straw hat. Look for locally grown fruits and flowers.
The food at a garden wedding should be light. Sandwiches, vegetarian dishes, pasta salads and fruit salads work well with a garden wedding. A wedding cake topped with strawberries will match the scenery. In terms of drinks, you should consider having fresh squeezed lemonade, sweet tea and exotic fruit juices to go along with alcohol beverages such as wine spritzers and raspberry martinis.
For music, you should keep it light and bubbly. A single harpist would be appropriate during the ceremony. For the reception, find a DJ or band that has an expertise with light jazz music that will blend into the background.
Throughout your wedding, don’t be afraid to add as many plants and flowers as you wish. If there are trees to work with at your location, use the trees as natural shade for your wedding party. Trees can also double as built in decorations. If you are using many potted plants and other floral arrangements, after the wedding is over you can donate them to a local retirement home, hospital patients or another organization.
The best wedding favors are seeds or bulbs. Truly Wedding Favors offers these plantable wildflower hearts that are just perfect. These heart shaped, plantable seed packets are available in a choice of pink, lavender, sage green, blue and white. You can slip in a handwritten note to each guest inside the envelope for a personal touch.
When selecting attire for a garden wedding, the bride should wear a more simple wedding gown than for a church wedding. Some brides are even wearing short wedding dresses for outdoor weddings these days.
The groom and his groomsmen should wear light colored suits in linen, beige, grey or green. The bridesmaids should dress accordingly – shorter bridesmaids dresses in light airy fabrics.
For all the women, including the bride, skip the stilettos which can easily sink into the ground. Instead wear ballet flats or chunky heels.
The most important aspect is to have fun with your wedding and enjoy the beauty of our green earth.

I always thought wedding favors were cute, but a little awkward to give out.
Don’t get me wrong; I love wedding favors—I gave away favors at my wedding and, by golly, my sister will give them away at hers.
What I mean by awkward is, when do you give them to your guests?
If you give out favors as your guests arrive, they’re stuck carting around the cute little trinkets for a few hours. And they might even (gasp!) forget them.
If you wait till the end of your reception to give out favors, though, there’s no guarantee everyone will get one. What about poor grandma who had to take off early to get to her Jazz dance class? Or your dad, who so kindly spent the latter part of your reception making sure all of your presents were packed nicely in your car?
Ok, so maybe I’m being a little drastic here—handing out your favors before or after your reception are both good options, but I think I’ve found an even better one.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could combine your favors (something you want to give out) with something you’ll need to give anyway, like place card holders? Well, surprise of all surprises: you can!
Pink is one of the most popular wedding colors. It’s flirty, romantic and fun. When pairing pink you can choose from a wide array of options, from pastels to metallics to even brown.
If you are ready to buy wedding favors, Truly Wedding Favors offers a tremendous selection of pink favors that are perfect for a Spring or Summer wedding. Here are some of my favorites:
Pink Rose Ball Candle
This beautiful candle is an affordable favor. Right now, you can get these for as little as $1.19 each at Truly Wedding Favors. Each candle is packaged in a clear box and wrapped in a pink ribbon.
Pink Wedding Cake Candle
I think these cake favors are some of the cutest favors available. The three-tiered pink wedding cake candle is adorned with little white hearts, flowers, garlands and bows. If you are interested, a blue version of this favor is also available.
Pink Cross Deluxe Bookmark
This favor is very lovely and delicate. These favors can be for wedding, or even a christening or first communion celebration. Each favor consists of 2 pink rhinestone-adorned crosses joined by a pink organza ribbon with decorative beading.
I found this cool video on YouTube about how to make these very cute wedding favors from Jordan almonds. The video shows a very detailed explanation on how to make these Jordan Almond Flower favors. They are a unique idea that would complement any wedding decor.
