Trendy Ways to Package Your Wedding Favors

When planning a thematic wedding, don't overlook the presentation of your wedding favor packaging. Instead of using ribbons only to accentuate your wedding favors, try putting your wedding favors in modern, attractive packaging. Trendy new wedding favor packaging styles will make wedding favors more memorable keepsakes for guests.

Nothing immortalizes a wedding favor more than being packaged in a can. Many couples are now opting for tins and cans to package their wedding favors. This can be seen by the popularity of personalized mint tins and tin pails. Many wedding favors, such as mint candies, already come packaged in tin cans. A few wedding favors that are best packaged in wedding favor cans or tins are: mint candies, jelly belly beans, coffee beans, gummy bears and custom shaped chocolates.

Perhaps the most common of the new wedding favor packaging trends is the use of bags. Wedding favor bags come in a variety of styles (paper, sheer organza, sinamay, tulle, plastic, printed, PVC, custom-made, etc.). They can either be bought from shops specializing on wedding accessories or they can be handmade. Because wedding favor bags often come with handles or straps, guests can easily carry their favors. A few wedding favors that are best packaged in wedding favor bags are: candle votives, candies, beach wedding favors like seashell chocolates and cookies and Jordan almonds.

Wedding favor envelopes are perhaps the most unique of the new wave of wedding favor packaging ideas. Wedding favor envelopes work particularly well in weddings with a nature, outdoor or garden theme. Wedding favor envelopes are easy to make. They can also be bought in packs from stores that specialize in wedding accessories. Wedding favor envelopes can be made from recycled paper, vellum, plastic or anything that is able to hold lightweight wedding favors. A few wedding favors that are best packaged in wedding favor envelopes are: almond candies, potpourri, flower seeds and gift certificates.

A trendy wedding favor packaging for your wedding favors will enhance the stylistic feel of a wedding as well as impress your wedding guests. So great care should be taken when selecting the wedding favor packaging.
