Putting the final touches on your spring wedding? This is, of course, the most popular time of year for weddings because of the bright colors and the beautiful weather. And of course one of the things that really enhances the event are spring wedding favors. These are small tokens given to your guests to show gratitude for them attending the wedding. In many cases these spring wedding favors are related to the overall theme and decorations. Spring wedding favors are quite beautiful since they often feature bright flowers and designs. And if you have the good fortune to have warm, sunny weather in your part of the country, you can even choose to have an outside, garden wedding–complete with garden wedding favors.
At your spring wedding, you’ll typically incorporate the classic spring colors such as cream, white and pastels. Other favorite colors fall in the teal, peach and green families. The bridesmaids often wear shorter dresses with open necklines, whereas the groom and the groomsmen will often also go with lighter fabrics. You’ll want to match everything with this light, lively look–including your spring wedding favors. To give your wedding the complete atmosphere of spring, use flowers wherever possible. After all, for most people, thoughts of spring are thoughts of bright flowers and butterflies and birds and so forth. It’s exciting finding unique ways to incorporate these ideas into your spring wedding favors. For instance, you can often find favors decorated with spring flowers and creatures. You can even find spring wedding favors that come shaped like fruit. A popular one is the heart-shaped pear.
Related to the spring wedding is the garden wedding, although these often take place in the autumn. A garden theme will mean finding some nice garden wedding favors. These could include items such as chocolates, flower-shaped soaps, flower centerpieces, and more. You can give a lovely look to all of the guest tables with centerpieces that use gel candles or glass or wild flowers. You can also consider putting potpourris in glass bowls for an extra atmospheric effect.
We mentioned that colors such as pastels and pinks and greens are common for spring brides. When you consider garden wedding favors, you’re looking more at oranges and reds and other autumn colors. There are also many romantic combinations you can create using mint, plum, lilac and baby blue. Releasing doves and butterflies has become especially popular for many garden weddings. And for those who prefer a truly beautiful effect in way of garden wedding favors, calla lilies work well. They have long blooms which signify never-ending love. Their white, simple flowers represent purity.
Remember as you decide on the proper garden wedding favors that it’s best to select gifts that reflect the bride and groom’s personalities. Some people even consider making their own favors. Lots of ideas won’t take that much money or effort…just some creativity and a small investment of time. You can take some silk or fresh flowers and arrange them in a variety of vases placed all around on the tables. Also in keeping with the garden theme, you can put personalized packs of flower seeds at each table for the guests. Warm weather months are beautiful. If your wedding is a spring or garden wedding, take advantage of this beautiful time of year to create a truly magical wedding day–and don’t skimp on the favors!
