Bridal Shower Favors

I just love unique shower favors, don’t you? While cruising the internet for photos I came across some adorable ideas that I want to share with you. Www.Myweddingfavors.com had by far the cutest ideas if you’re into checking them out yourself.

Some favors were very pricey and others quite reasonable. They can range from as little as 20 cents to as much as ten dollars or more. Yikes! Most ran in the one to two dollar price range. Common ideas include votive candles, mint boxes, or candies. Take the candle a step further with something creative like this Wedding Cake Candle or have your mint box or candy bar personalized with wedding date and the couple’s names. Bottle stoppers, coasters, cookie cutters, key chains, shaped cookies, pillow sachets- all in wedding a design – also seem to be very popular choices.

Elegant little boxes such as these are pretty inexpensive but very cute. Fill them with your choice of mints, nuts, or other goodies. Tiny decorative bags are available too and very inexpensive.

You could also choose a favor to a match your party theme-seed packets for a garden party (check out the butterfly basket with wild flower seeds), fancy tea bags for the tea, chopsticks or fortune cookes for an Asian theme, ‘hot’ sauce for a kitchen theme, etc.

Remember how the Wedding Bellles loved their margaritas? Well, here’s a party favor they would adore – a margarita-shaped note pad. Chances are the Belles would throw a margarita-themed shower in the first place, so at $2.20 each, why not have a matching party favor?

Or considering the way they loved their poker games, they might have a poker party and hand out these adorable magnet favors.

For a bit more money, ($2.95) you can treat your guests to this pink polka dot purse. Inside is a little manicure set.

Gotta love these flip-flop photo frames. They would be perfect for any shower, but especially one with a beach or luau theme. They cost about $2.11 for a set of four.

And how about this measuring tape shaped like an umbrella? How cute is that?

Last of all, a gift that would make the Belle’s photographer, Regina, swoon with delight—the chic leather stiletto key chain. At $1.65, it’s not too bad. Wow! That’s one shower Regina will not miss!
Okay now, ‘fes up. What’s the best bridal shower favor you ever received? What did you have at your shower? Or what do you wish you could have had?

I didn't have a Bridal shower. And haven't attended one in over 10 years. (In real life, I'm SUPER SHY.) These were all fun, cute favors!

These party favours are wonderful. Unfortunately, I’ve never received anything close to this creative. My favourite is definitely the butterfly basket and the flower seeds. Cute and useful! :) Thanks, Linda.

Linda, some great ideas here. Love the margarita shape note pad! (love stationery full stop. LOL!) I find it fascinating at cultural differences. Being Greek-Australian, we don't have bridal showers. We have kitchen teas (well most do). So presents for the home. As for the wedding, the koumbari (basically best man or woman or both) get the bombiniere organised, which is the gift to the guests for coming to the wedding.

It seemed for a while there folks were doing CDs of their favorite songs for guests to take home. Now I guess it would have to be itune downloads!

Peace, Julie

Wow, these are all great ideas. Eleni, I am especially fascinated by your information on the Greek customs. Maybe you should do a blog for us Wedding Belles!!

Thanks for posting.

Be blessed and be sure and check out my September book too--A TIME TO HEAL is on the shelves right now and I also have a free online read up at eharlequin. Enjoy!

Thanks Linda. I'm always fascinated with other cultures too. And have been a bridesmaid so many times, i've lost count... though not 27 Dresses extreme though *g*. Family and a few friends and thank goodness, the dresses weren't hideous. Blog, sure why not? LOL!

I'm placing The Wedding Belles on my TBR list just so you know. I've been having fun on this blog *g*

Truly, these are so unique wedding shower favors. I am in love with each and everything that you have shared here. That last one is my favorite among all. I also have to arrange bridal shower for a friend and would like to host this party at venues in Atlanta. I was looking for DIY stuff for arrangements and all your decor ideas are going to rock my party.
