I’m picturing something on the beach, like this… with sea glass and starfish along the aisle.

Oh! And these sea glass bottles turned makeshift vases, hanging from sticks in the sand. Love, love, love.

I love these magnets as favors. They’re sold in a set of six, so you could always give just one to each guest in a small muslin bag, like this.

For decor, we found these bottles topped with seashells, or these plain clear bottles painted to look like sea glass. Both of these finds are DIY projects with step-by-step instructions — just click on the links below the images.

Cute Wedding Favors for Kids

If you’re inviting children to your wedding, you’ll want to keep them entertained. You see, kids aren’t as jazzed about the music or the food or the ceremony. Or the speeches. They’re much more excited about the cake and the dance floor. And maybe even the favors, if there is a candy buffet involved. So, while they wait for said cake and dance moves and sugar overload, you can keep them happy with these fun bags that include games and fun treats inside.

Skeleton Key Escort Card Favors

What are you going to pick for escort cards? What about favors? Did you know you could combine your escort cards and favors into one? You can — and it’s a fantastic way to save time and money. Check out these skeleton key escort card favors we spotted here as one example. All you need to do is write the names of guests on the tags, hang or display on a table or a vintage hutch or dresser, and add a sign so guests know to take their key and find their seat. And if you’re wondering how these skeleton keys double as favors, it’s because they’re actually bottle openers — how neat is that? And you know how crazy I am over functional favors. Take a look at these charming skeleton key bottle openers and the pretty vintage tags that accompany them, below. They are from Trees of Lace.
