Planning a bridal shower can be as enjoyable as the gathering itself and choosing your bridal favors to give your guests a “Thank you” for attending and a memento to commemorate the get together is only part of the fun.
Choosing your bridal favors can seem overwhelming due to the sheer number of choices, and there are no wrong answers – it’s just a matter of choosing what favors will go best with your own bridal shower and the budget you’d like to stay within.
If you aren’t sure where to begin, choose favors that reflect the colors of the wedding and you can go from there and choose the items that “fit” the personality of the bride-to-be and you can usually narrow down quickly the items you want or do not want included as bridal shower favors.
Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular. If your bride-to-be is having a destination wedding, consider choosing bridal shower favors that are reflective of the destination itself. Palm tree imprinted items or a silver bracelet with beach-themed charms dangling could be reflective of a destination wedding and make great bridal shower favors.
Instead of just one favor per guests, many bride-to-be’s are opting for smaller bridal showers and giving small “favor bags” that contain several shower favors for their guests. The bags may contain personal use items like scented lotions and soaps. Candles in an engraved candle holder and one keepsake item such as a bracelet, necklace, silver spoon or heart shaped tea infusers are all items that will kept for years to come and bring a happy memory of this get together every time they are used.
Use these tips and make choosing your bridal shower favors easy. It’s just a matter of narrowing down your theme and budget for favors and making sure you give everyone a great memory of a beautiful time spent together.
