Wedding Photo Favors

After working in the favor business for quite some time now – I have come to learn that there are so manyfavor possibilities that can include your wedding photo on it. If you hadn’t thought about it let me tell you about the wedding photo favor options you have:

Functional Favors:

Candle Favors- Look for candles that come in elegant, reusable holders and that allow you to choose candle color, scent, and customize the photo label so that it fits with the color scheme of your wedding.
Golf Balls – These white balls feature your photo and, typically, a line of personalization.
Magnets- Look for sizeable magnets (1.5 inches) that come in a nice bag for presentation purposes. If it doesn’t come with a bag then purchase small organza or velvet drawstring bags.
Coasters- Many coasters are photo coasters in the sense that the middle of the coaster enables you to insert a photo.
Playing Cards- Many cards allow you to include a photo and personalization on one side of the playing card.

Keepsake Favors:

Ornaments- Photo ornament favors make beautiful wedding favors.
Picture Frames- The gift is the frame itself but you can include your favorite photo in it.


Cookie – The frosting is your edible photo. These are fun!
Chocolate Bars- These featured personalized labels that include your photo and text. You can usually purchase wrappers only or already assembled candy bars. For the latter – most use Hershey┬« bars but if you search you can find better quality chocolate bars.
Lollipops- Your photo on either a chocolate or hard candy lollipop.
Mint Tins- These come with a personalized label that includes your favorite photo.

And if you come to a site that looks appealing to you but you don’t readily see photo favors, just type “photo” in the sites search bar and then you’ll have them all at your fingertips

Wedding Reception Decoration Ideas

The first thing any bride needs to think about is where the reception will be held. If you have not chosen and reserved a reception location now is the time to do so. All wedding receptions are different and each location can change how the bride will need to decorate. Before you can really begin planning your decorations you really need to know where you will be decorating.

Once you know the place and the hours (daytime, midevening or late night receptions could all vary by a lot) it is time to think about the decorations. You can start simple by determining the linens, silverware and glassware that you will be using. Just by determining these few items you will be able give a certain feeling to the reception such as casual, elegant, formal or family friendly.

The entryway into the actual reception can also be decorated. Many brides and grooms prefer something simple like a sign, monograms or pictures of the happy couple that their guests will pass on the way in. If you are looking for something a little more decorative you could choose an archway decorated with lights or flowers.

One common way to decorate is by using centerpieces on all the tables. The table centerpieces can be the same, or they can alternate by table. Some of the more common wedding centerpieces include flowers and candles. If you are looking to be even more modern you could have a large glass bowl filled with edible treats and surround that with flower petals.

Once you decide on the centerpieces for your guest tables, it is time to think about the wedding party table. You can either use the same centerpieces, similar ones but a little nicer (just like how the bride has a bigger bouquet than the bridesmaids, it is perfectly acceptable for the nicest centerpieces to be on the wedding party table), or you can choose to use something completely different and unique.

Whether you are having a full buffet or you just have an appetizer table you can take the time to decorate these tables as well. Making these tables extra special just requires you add some flower petals, personal pictures or even use different linens than the rest of the tables.

The cake table is also usually decorated. The cake serving utensils are usually on the table from the beginning of the reception for everyone to see, this is especially nice if they are monogrammed or have some special meaning to them.

Of course there is more decorating you can do, utilize any other ideas you have especially any centered on a wedding theme or wedding colors. This article just listed the basics, evenly broken up into manageable tasks. Hopefully this will help some brides cut down on the stress.
