Winter weddings — they’re the stuff dreams are made of. When planning your winter wedding, think frosty fairy princess! You can fulfill all your girlhood fantasies for a magnificent and sparkling wedding ceremony and reception with the help of a little creativity and imagination. There are so many ways to make a winter wedding spectacular, from the food to the favors.
Wedding favors are a great way to express your thanks to your guests and give them something to help them remember the wedding. These days, there are so many fun ideas for great winter wedding favors. Read on for some ideas to get your creativity flowing!
The first thing you’ll need to do before selecting wedding favors is decide on a color scheme. Popular color schemes for winter weddings include red and green Christmas colors as well as shades of midnight blue accented with sparkling silver and white.
Disposable cameras wrapped in colorful, decorative fabric like sheer tulle make ideal wedding favors. With a disposable camera, your guests can capture their own memories of your special day. Candy is also a popular choice. Chocolate silver bells (like Hershey’s kisses) wrapped in tulle and secured with satin ribbon are perfect.
Or, try a winter themed collectible like a miniature snowglobe. This gives your guests something to take home that they can use and enjoy throughout the winter season. Scented votive candles in fragrances like pine or spicy cinnamon are also popular winter wedding favors.
The old tradition of throwing rice at the bride and groom has gone out of favor since it was discovered that rice is harmful for birds. Instead, choose birdseed to give the birds that are still around a little something to eat! Or, try miniature bottles of blowing bubbles in a color that matches your color scheme.
Another nice idea is wrapping packets of hot cocoa mix, apple cider or gourmet coffee in pretty fabric. Guests will love the thoughtfulness of the hot, satisfying beverage on a frosty winter day! Christmas ornaments also make good wedding favors.
Like many aspects of your wedding and reception, the wedding favors you choose to give your guests should reflect the theme and color scheme of your wedding and your own individual preferences. No matter what you end up choosing, your guests are sure to be delighted with the favors they receive!
