Springtime is when you get adventurous and casual with your wedding favors. Being a season of youth, spring wedding favors are decorative, bright and happy items. Winter wedding favors are often elegant gifts that are romantic by nature.
Planning a spring wedding is exciting. There is nothing lovelier than having flowers blooming in their natural surroundings and everyone in a naturally happier frame of mind than usual. Spring brings with it a different kind of magic – young, carefree and happy kind of charm that immediately cheers you up even if you tried not to feel it.
As spring is often associated with youth and the newborn exuberance for life, spring colors are often bright and jolly. Colors commonly connected to the season are butter yellow, soft pink, baby blue, muted purple or lavender and pastel green. Of course, you are most welcomed to include other equally lovely colors in your palate as spring is the best time to get away with happy shades you would not normally wear.
Spring wedding favors are just as happy as their colors. Just like the season, favors for spring weddings are friendly, warm and bright, and more often than not, informal. Flowers and floral-based designs are rampant in almost anything – from theme to décor to favors. To start off with, you may want to try the easiest favors – candles. Lavender candles make great spring wedding favors, with both scents and colors matching the happy season. Tea light holders are great gifts too, especially when they have beautiful floral designs on them. For spring, opt for happy flowers like sunflowers, daisies and peonies. These tend to automatically evoke happy feelings in people.
Spring Wedding Favors
Spring scented soaps make great wedding favors as well. Rose scents, in particular, are very popular at spring as their fragrance is stronger and tends to last longer. Choose soaps that are more for decorative purposes than those that are actually to be used for hygiene as spring is all about pretty things.
Happy-looking coasters make great spring favors too. Glass coasters featuring a field of daisies will help brighten up your guests’ tables at spring while doing their jobs at preventing stains.
Spring, being a young, exciting time, is also a time to think about slightly unusual favors. A set of two fridge magnets in the shape of sunflowers will be perfect as spring wedding favors. So will a pair of flip flops with fruits on them. Even hats trimmed with a single daisy or fruit will make for an interesting favor. Other happy wedding favors for spring are decorative ceramic balls, wire place card holders bent into the shape of a single daisy and tableware such as the butter knife.
Being married in spring means you have the choice of being very casual in your gifts. Your favors can also lean towards pretty decorative items instead of practical ones, as the important thing is you reflect the joy of spring while celebrating your love.
Winter weddings, on the other hand, tend to be naturally romantic and elegant. Winter’s colors of white and silver are perfect backdrops for a magical moment and with such a perfect blend of colors, it will be easy to find elegant and romantic favors to match. With such a light setting, your use of the Christmas colors of red and green on them will be beautiful.
