Apparel-based beach wedding favors are unique as well as fun! Straw hats, scarves (which can actually be put to good use by your guests immediately), pashminas and wraparound shorts will all highly amusing to your guests and you will see lots of giggles and laughs go around as they discover what they have as a souvenir of your wedding.
Other popular favors for the beach wedding are miniature candles in sea or beach shades of sky blue, beige, sand, green or turquoise. If your candles are white or ivory, then have them designed with beach or sea objects like starfish, sandcastles, sailboats or waves. Make them personal by using items that are significant to both you and your spouse and leave your mark by putting your names and wedding date there.
Shell place card holders are beautiful beach wedding favors. These are real, authentic sea shells attached to place card holders which will complement any table it is set upon, whether on a mantelpiece or the imposing table desk at work. The novelty of these is that the size and shape of each sea shell is unique which means no two place card holders will look exactly alike. You can color the sea shells individually so each shell is of a different color, shape and size. However, sea shells in their natural colors usually look better.
The best beach wedding favors are those that are less formal and fun-oriented. Even beach balls and floating apparatus will make a suitable gift. If your wedding party program is informal, choose bright colors and plastic or cork for your favors. Otherwise, get lighter shades or more formal designs on them to suit the occasion. The more formal favors should also be made of harder material like sterling silver and metal.
