Destination Favors for Your Wedding

By Sophia C.

Are you planning a dream destination wedding this year? If your idea of a wedding to remember involves a far off land, with exotic sights and sounds, then you will be pleased with a wedding held in an exotic destination of your choosing. If you are on a budget and must save on your expenses by holding your wedding locally then going on a destination honeymoon, you can still have a destination style wedding in your hometown. Here are some ideas to make your destination wedding extra special with destination wedding favors:

Passport to love. If your fun idea for a wedding is holding it at a destination far away from home, you can easily make your theme convey this with a variety of wedding favors that reflect a travel theme. Look for favors in the form of passports or tickets - with a little personalization you can add the names of the bride and groom, the wedding date as well as a note of thanks to those who shared in your big day. Once personalized, attach the tags to tins in the form of suitcases, or favor boxes resembling seashells, palm trees or boats. If an island or beach wedding is your choice of venue, you are sure to find wonderful favors like bottle openers in the form of dolphins, or sandalwood fans.

Sail away. As part of your destination wedding, you may be planning to spend the night on a lovely cruise ship either strolling the decks in the moonlight or at one of the ship's clubs dancing the night away with your guests. It's always a nice touch to provide your guests with a little memento of this evening with sailboat shaped wedding favors that come in many forms, like glowing tea light candle holders, bookmarks or place card holders that can display photos of this adventure later on.

Miles of memories. A destination wedding may be one of the most romantic and memorable of all the weddings in the world. Heading to a foreign land, enjoying the new scenery and people will be something you and your mate will never forget. Be sure to share this experience with your wedding guests as you provide them with mementos of the trip with elegant engraved luggage tags, personalized passport covers and air mail heart luggage tags that can hold photos of your special memories when you return from your trip.

Margaritas for everyone. If your idea of a great destination involves sipping fruity mixed drinks by the side of the ocean or pool, then a trip to "Margaritaville" is in order. This destination wedding theme uses a lot of beach and summertime ideas so it's easy to create wedding favors that will please your guests. Think lots of cool summer colors, scents and flavors for this wedding theme. Choose wedding favors like personalized sun screen mini bottles, margarita glass shaped note pads and candles or flip flop shaped items. You can even get personalized lip balms in beautiful summer colors and tasty flavors for wedding guests to take home to enjoy after a day in the sun.

Having a destination wedding is so much fun and it's a wedding theme that your guests and family will remember for years to come. Destination wedding favors can be great ways for them to think back fondly on your special day once the sun goes down and you are on your way to the dream vacation of a lifetime - your honeymoon.
