How to Choose Favors for a Winter Wedding
Let the season be your guide
By Steve Smith
Winter is a beautiful season for a wedding, with its snow-covered trees and wintry scenes in many parts of the country. No matter where you live, you can celebrate with a holiday theme. Incorporate these themes into your wedding through your decor and the favors you choose.
- What You Need to Know
- Wedding favors for any season should be chosen with your wedding theme in mind. For winter weddings, consider traditional winter colors such as silver, white, light blue and pale gray.
- Consult your budget before you shop. Know how much you can spend per guest first.
Pick your colors. Decide on your decor colors before you select your winter wedding favors. This will give you a base for creating a matching color scheme.
Match your favors to your color scheme first and then to your theme. Most winter wedding favors revolve around similar themes, so you will find that after you've matched the colors, almost every wedding favor in the winter section will fit into your theme in one way or another.
Find holiday-themed favors for winter weddings that are to take place around the holidays, but don't use them for a wedding after the new year. Holiday-themed favors can include images from any of the major winter holidays. Christmas ornaments are ideal favors from the couple that loves Christmas.
Vary the designs if the vendor will offer mix and match pricing. It may be a better buy to choose one design and buy all the favors in that design.
Present candy favors and edible favors in matching snowflake bags so they match your winter favor choices.
