Summertime is a fabulous time to hold a beach wedding! No matter what type of beach you choose or the décor, you’ll definitely want to pick out the best wedding favors for the day.
If your wedding takes guests to a tropical location be sure to be prepared for the heat by providing your guests with personalized hand fans that can double as favors. Some parasols and flip flops can also go a long way in making your guests feel comfortable.
For the reception, consider using personalized sea shells in your décor. Not only do they make great beach wedding favors, but they are also perfect as place cards. As an alternate set up, you could fill some mini buckets with sand and then attach a tag with your guests’ names. The buckets can also hold a tea light candle atop the sand for a lovely and unique touch. For a colorful accent, hang some round paper lanterns over trees, wooden beams, and anywhere else you see fit.
Be sure to provide your guests with some more practical favors as well. Personalized water bottles are perfect to quench thirst and mini personalized sunscreen or hand sanitizer favors are also definite dos for any outdoor ceremony. For some added fun, hand out some wedding Frisbees—especially for the younger ones.
