Candle Wedding Favors
Candle Wedding Favors: Elegance Beyond Price
Candle favors make for elegant, graceful parting gifts at the end of a wedding reception. The flickering glow of a candle has long signified romance, so it is little wonder that today's brides often opt for candle wedding favors. Although candles are not expensive to give as wedding favors, they feel extravagant because a candle is by nature a luxury item. Giving out candles as party favors at your wedding reception means maximum elegance without busting your budget.
Try wrapping up a few candles for each guest in a small vellum bag tied with ribbon. This will make your candle favors look stylish arrayed on a table or in a basket, adding to the overall glamour of your wedding atmosphere. You can even distribute your candle favors as part of the table settings for your wedding dinner. If you do decide to add your wedding favors to the dinner setting, make sure the gifts have a small footprint, so that they can easily look at home as part of a table setting, and won’t crowd your lucky diners.
Favors that include a candle and/or a candleholder are perfect candidates for personalized wedding favors. One of the best ways to turn a few candles into a one of a kind favor is to include a personalized matchbook. Whether you opt for a small photo of the bride and groom, or a simple message with the date of the event and the names of the happy couple, you can easily put the image or message of your choice onto the front of a matchbook. Personalized touches round out any wedding favor, and can turn a generic candle into the building block of one of the most beautiful and unique favors your guests will ever receive.
Thanks to the price of a candle, you can add a little something personal to the favor without it breaking your budget. However, the low cost of candles is just one reason among the many reasons why candles make such popular wedding favors. There's also their cleanly sophisticated look, and their warm and traditional mood. But there's more to the appeal of candle favors than even all of those elements. Favors that include candles offer each guest the chance to take home a little bit of the glow of romance home with them, and that makes candle favors truly priceless.
