Bridal Shower Favors -- Fun in a Box!

Aug 17, 2007
No matter the time, theme or place of your bridal shower; party favors are fast becoming the norm in shower protocol. No matter how small, a token of thanks in the form of a gift will make each wedding shower guest feel special. Bridal shower favors can be given by the bride herself, the hostess of the party or the bride's mother or future mother-in law.

Though not required, bridal shower favors add to the party festivities and provide a memento of the special time family and friends spend with the bride before her big day. Bridal shower favors need not be expensive or extravagant. Small and sweet is the mind-set here. Those that follow the theme of the shower or the interest of the bride and groom are best.

There are many options for great bridal shower favors. In fact, there are so many gift options it can be overwhelming to choose the right party favor for your guests. The trick here is to keep it simple, follow the shower theme and the choice becomes much easier. This list of ideas should help:

Decorative Shower Favors - Bridal shower favors can be incorporated into the shower theme and decorations. A break-away centerpiece performs this function beautifully while adding to the glamour of the table arrangements. This can be a flower arrangement made up of separate vases for each guest or an assortment of gift boxes artfully arranged.

Theme Shower Favors - These favors follow the bridal shower theme. How about monogrammed towels or flip-flops for a spa shower. A personalized tea cup for a formal tea party shower. Wine glass charms for a wine tasting shower. Engraved garden trowel for a garden shower. Votive candles for a formal dinner party shower.

Shower Favor Trees - Another great idea for adding a decorative element. This is great for any season but also works great for winter bridal showers. Tie party favors, wrapped or unwrapped, onto a centerpiece tree. These favors can be small like bags of specialty candy or fancy bookmarks or personalized ornaments.

Tasty Treat Shower Favors - These can be fun and creative like decorated cookies personalized with icing. Unique personalized candies. Engraved tea tins or jam jars with personalized labels. How about favorite foods of the bride or groom? Food favors work great for coed wedding showers.

Double-duty Shower Favors - Favors can also perform a party function like table nameplates that guest can use later as photo frames or business card holders. Perhaps a glass or plate with personalized engraving. Maybe a pair of chopsticks engraved with the bride and groom names and wedding date.

Bon-voyage Shower Favors - Will the happy couple be heading of to an exotic beach honeymoon destination? How about personalized beach bags or sun visors? Lip balm in personalized tins. Perhaps a pair of personalized flip flops?

No-Muss Favor - Place a large decorated basket full of wrapped party favors near the door and be sure each guest takes one on their way out. These can be as simple as a small framed photo of the bride and groom or an engraved key chain.
