Fall Wedding Favors – Way To Charm Your Guests
Nowadays, bridal couples are exploring their options as to the kind of wedding they want to have. Various themes are now freely and creatively chosen to make weddings even more special and memorable–not just for the couples, but also for everyone else who will join in the celebration. Seasonal wedding themes, in particular, can be very appealing to your guests. This is especially because people tend associate different emotions with the scents and colors of the season, may it be winter, spring, summer, or fall.
Furthermore, having a wedding theme is a great way to amaze the guests, as you bring out artistic ideas and decorating skills into every aspect of the wedding. For instance, you are having a fall theme wedding. Your flower girl can toss rose petals or silk leaves in the shades of gold, red, and burgundy. The ring bearer’s pillow can even come in shades of burnt oranges or rich browns. Indeed, reflecting the ‘feel’ of the season in weddings is easy; you just have to choose the right color shades.
When it comes to fall wedding favors, your options are also wide-ranging. There are a lot of items that can easily radiate the essence of autumn, from wine stoppers to edible treats like chocolates and candied apples. Think fall leaves, shapes, and colors that exude a sense of warmth, and then incorporate these into your keepsakes. Your guests will be enamored with the efforts you put in choosing wedding favors that are truly exceptional.
Fall wedding favors are offered by various online stores and wedding shops. If you choose to purchase wedding favors, remember to compare prices first. Also, ask if personalization services are offered—most shops do. As you know, it is best to add a personal touch to the wedding favors. This way, your guests will really feel that you appreciate their presence in your celebration, and thus, keep your favors rather than stack them up in their storage rooms. Moreover, be reminded to have clear transactions when purchasing wedding favors, most especially if you are doing it online. Ask the number of shipping days before your keepsakes can be delivered; you do not want your wedding favors to arrive late.
You can also make your own fall wedding favors, if you want to save bundles of cash and cut back on wedding expenses. Most of these favors are simple to make, so you do not really have to be a creative artist (although that could be an edge, of course). Consider using materials such as cornhusks, harvest fruits (apples and oranges), sunflowers, or wheat. Homemade jams, cookies baked into shapes of leaves and flowers, and chocolates are all inexpensive fall wedding favors that you can give your guests.
Here are some other wedding favors that you may want to use if you will have a fall theme wedding:
1. Pumpkin Seeds – Adults and kids in your wedding celebration will surely be in for a yummy and healthy treat with pumpkin seeds. It is recommended to get organic pumpkin seeds since these are eco-friendly. Pumpkin seeds can easily be bought in health food stores and are ready for consumption. If you want, you can even roast the pumpkin seeds on your own! Then, all you have to do is place the seeds in a clear organza bag, and accentuate it with accessories such as gold leaves or ribbons.
2. Caramel Apples – Here, you can just buy small apples and place them in plastic bags, which are available in any local craft store. Tie the package with ribbons that match the colors of your wedding. Personalize this fall wedding favor by cutting a craft paper (2×3 inches) using pinking shears, and punching a hole on the paper. Attach the note, which contains your names, the wedding date, and personal message, into the apple package.
3. Cinnamon Spice/Organic Apple Cider – apple ciders are perhaps one of the best representations of the fall season. You can purchase these at grocery stores, farm markets, and apple orchards. Also, if it is possible that you can buy apple ciders without any labels yet, print your own label indicating your names, the wedding date, short romantic quote, and of course, a thank-you message. Fall spices such as cinnamon can also be an added treat to the organic apple cider. Place these spices in a clear candy bag and tie it up with gold or sparkling red ribbons.
Indeed, there’s a wide variety of fall wedding favors that can be given as souvenirs and goodies for your special guests. Just explore your options and make sure that your choice reflects autumn colors.
