Whether you’re reciting your vows in the comfort of your family church or in the warm light of the sun, all summer weddings have a few things in common. They’re surrounded by warm weather and sunshine, feature lighter outfits for the wedding party as well as guests and have some of the best seasonal wedding flowers.
So, how do you pick something appropriate for the season when looking for favors? Summer wedding favors should not only be useful but also tie in aspects of the summer. Need some inspiration? We’ve got you covered.
1. Personalized Sunglasses
Summer outdoor weddings are often blazing with warm yet ultra-bright sunshine. There’s a good chance not all of your guests had the forethought to bring a pair of sunglasses. Fill a basket or two with these personalized glasses and place them in strategic locations. While this is a helpful wedding favor, it’ll also make your photographs look spectacular. Nothing’s cooler than a crowd full of matching sunglasses. You can pick from seven colors to match them to your wedding colors.
2. Burlap Rose Place Card Holders
Rustic or flower-themed summer weddings will look great with these burlap rose place card holders. They’ll let your guests know exactly where to go. But, even better, your guests can take them home at the end of the night and use them as photograph holders. Nice!
3. Porcelain Flower Vase
Fill your seasonal flowers, like dahlias, sunflowers and daisies, in these white porcelain vases. The white blends well with nearly any kind of wedding, from traditional to vintage. The vases make great centerpieces on reception tables and good gifts for anyone who wants to take one home–flowers included.
4. Decorative Butterflies
Are you having an outdoor wedding? Or maybe your wedding is inside but you want to incorporate a bit of the outdoors. In that case, decorate tables with a splash of these decorative butterflies. At the end of the night, guests can take them home.
5. Sunflower-Themed Stemless Wine Glasses
Guests are going to need something to toast with. Rather than using generic, plain wine glasses, provide these sunflower-themed stemless wine glasses. Personalize them for the wedding and hand them out as guests make their way home.
6. Gold Love Coasters
Guests will also need a place to set their wine glasses. How about these white and gold “Love” coasters?
7. Sunflower-Themed Strawberry Jam
It doesn’t get much more useful than an edible wedding favor that can be eaten. These little jars of strawberry jam give your guests something scrumptious for breakfast the day after the wedding. The personalized labels even feature sunflowers to go with your summer wedding theme.
