Are you getting married in the summer this year? If you are, it is never too early to start planning some of the details for your wedding. The closer to the big day you get, the busier you will be, so now is a good time to take care of some of the planning and ordering. The most popular theme for a summer wedding is a beach theme. Even if you are not getting married at the beach, you can still set the tropical mood with the help of some beach wedding favors. When you choose beach wedding favors for your reception, they will add to the decor on your tables and show your guests that you appreciate them attending.
When deciding on your beach wedding favors you should take a couple things into consideration. The color of your reception decorations will play a big part in which favors you choose as well as your budget. You should also have an idea of what kind of beach wedding favors you think your guests would like. Common wedding favors include place card holders, candles, bottle stoppers, and key chains. You could also go with something unique that your guests will be impressed by such as a crystal clamshell favor.
Here are a few of the most popular beach wedding favors: More »
Wedding celebrations take place all year long. Couples choose their wedding theme often based on the season in which their wedding will take place.

A popular wedding tradition is for guests to ring bells that are placed on the tables at the wedding reception. When the wedding bells are rung, it’s a signal to the newlyweds to kiss. Though many couples have gone away from bells in recent years, they are a great choice for affordable wedding favors.
When selecting wedding bell favors, you have many options to choose from. These White Open Heart Wedding Bells are cheap and functional too. Since they can be used as place card holders, they can do double duty. Each bell comes in black gift box, but it’s more logical to set them out next to each place setting on the guest tables.
Because these wedding favors are so inexpensive, you might also consider buying wedding favor boxes and filling them with candies and other treats for your guests.

After guests take these place card favors home, they can use them to hold photos or memos on their desk. Functional, fun and elegant – just what Samantha is looking for!
