When planning a wedding, the first thing that you need to decide upon is the wedding theme. Once you choose the theme, all other details will fall into place. As the beach wedding is one of the most popular wedding themes, we thought that you could use a little inspiration in this department. Therefore, we have gathered some simple yet interesting ideas for beach theme wedding favors.
- Natural beach elements
In order for the wedding theme to look authentic, it is always better to use natural elements which are related to the theme. As such, it is no wonder that starfish and sea shells are the most popular beach theme wedding favors. An interesting idea would be to turn the seashells into candles. This is a very simple DIY project. All you have to do is stick a candle fuse at the bottom of the shell, melt the wax and pour it into the shells. Sand is also a great natural element that you can use in order to make beach wedding favors. You can put it in tiny bottles along with some small seashells and tiny stones.
- Message in a bottle
If you really want to impress your guests, you need to get creative and write a romantic or funny message that you wish to share with your guests. Write the messages on aged paper, roll the papers and stick them in small, decorative bottles.
- Funny beach theme wedding favors
If you want your wedding to be more entertaining than romantic, you should consider some funny wedding favors. For example, you can give each of your guests a pair of shades so that they can enjoy the wedding without squinting. You can also give them flip-flop key chains inscribed with the “just married message”. While searching for creative wedding favors, we came upon a very interesting key chain which featured a miniature sand bottle, a blue bead and a round metal charm inscribed with the following message: “may you always have a seashell in your pocket and sand between your toes”. This is a nice way of wishing your guests a fun, carefree life.
As the sea is often associated with pirates and adventure, you might want to integrate this concept into your wedding theme. You can use tine treasure chests as beach theme wedding favors which you can fill with colorful beads. You can also print a treasure map on aged paper and engage your guests in a fun game of treasure hunt. This way, you will add some adventure and fun to your wedding and the guests will keep the map as a souvenir.
