I have been working with brides since early 2007 when I became the editor of the Wedding Favors Unlimited idea blog. I will be sharing tips and advice on choosing favors and accessories for specific color schemes and wedding themes. In addition, I will share my favorite bridal party gift ideas as well as elegant decoration ideas for the reception and ceremony.

Black & White Wedding Favor Ideas

One of the most elegant and traditional color schemes for a wedding is black and white so it is no wonder that this palette is one of the most popular choices for weddings today.  When it comes to choosing black and white favors, the sheer number of options can be staggering.  You can find personalized and non-personalized choices as well as traditional favors that are timeless classics and whimsical favors that feature zebra stripes or polka dots.  Just choose a favor that will convey your thank you sentiments along with your personal style.  I found this montage of my favorite black and white wedding favors that are available from Wedding Favors Unlimited. The damask wedding favors are definitely becoming popular, they're so pretty!! For

If you've decided to have a sweet pink wedding with chocolate brown accents, then you'll need favors in the same color palette.   The great news is that there are a wide range of wedding favors on the market that incorporate this color scheme so you can choose something that fits your style and personality perfectly.  Give your guests a memorable gift to say thank you for sharing in your special day.  While I was poking around on the web for some of my favorite pink and brown wedding favors, I stumbled across this great lens at Squidoo which covers every aspect of a Pink and Chocolate Brown Wedding from the bridesmaid dresses to the reception centerpieces to the wedding favors, of course.    Below you'll find the amazing collage of favors


DIY Tin Pail Wedding Favor Ideas

With a little imagination and creativity, you can put together unique, fun and affordable favors that utilize galvanized or painted tin pails.  Many online vendors sell these miniature pails that usually stand about 2" tall.  You can find them in either the silver galvanized color or in a painted white or pastel color.  They are a perfect container choice for casual events such as a spring, garden, or beach theme wedding.  Here are a couple of my favorite ideas for the pails: Perfect for a garden wedding, the first look shown in the photograph utilizes a miniature metal watering can that is embellished with personalized ribbon (available in 27 colors) and decorative tin flowers (available in pink, orange and lavender).  Simply purchase

Think Outside The Chest - Modern Favor Ideas

You may have seen my earlier post (aqua blue box ideas) where I suggested using treasure chest boxes for a shell themed wedding favor OR a blue chest with white ribbon for a Tiffany blue color scheme or a Something Blue wedding theme.  Here are some more fun ideas for using a chest-shaped box to create one-of-a-kind favors for your wedding guests.  Start with a simple treasure chest-shaped aqua blue favor box and embellish it for your wedding theme or season. To create the vintage look in the upper right corner of this collage, look to flapper girls of the 1920's or Victorian hats worn in the 1800's for inspiration.  This box was created using simple white feathers, ribbon, and natural floral components that can all be purchased


Treasure Chest Favor Ideas

One of my favorite do-it-yourself favor box choices for weddings are treasure chests.  You can embellish these simple boxes with ribbon, mini seashells, hearts or flowers, and personalized stickers or hang tags to create a one-of-a-kind favor for your wedding guests. This beach treasure chest was created using an aqua blue favor box, white "From The Happy Couple" ribbon, and starfish shaped stickers that are imprinted with the bride and groom's names along with the wedding date.  All of these items can be purchased at Wedding Favors Unlimited. I suggest filling the boxes with seashell-shaped chocolates nestled on a bed of paper shred (as shown in the photo) or your favorite candies such as M & M's in an aqua and white color scheme. Using

If you are having a beach wedding or seaside event, then you've realized that there are endless possibilities when it comes to wedding favors.  In the photo collage below, I've pulled together some of my favorite choices that cover the gamut of beach styles from casual to elegant. Having a casual beach wedding? Flip-flop themed favors are the perfect choice  for a casual wedding.  Choose from personalized lemonade packets, luggage tags, notebooks, and place card holders that all feature a flip-flop motif.  And don't forget about the margarita or cosmopolitan drink mix favors.  Personally, I can't think of anything better than digging my toes into the sand, kicking back on a chaise lounge and sipping a margarita on a sunny beach in
