Themed Soap Favors
Whenever possible, favors that follow the theme of the wedding are preferable to completely unrelated ones. Creating a cohesive event involves coordinating all the little, seemingly insignificant details that, when added together, equal a sum greater than their parts. Thoughtfully planned weddings that appear in bridal magazines are usually the ones who have considered the details, including the favors, as part of their overall wedding scheme. Personalizing the details of a wedding does not have to be expensive; au contraire, many a crafty bride has gone the DIY route with menus, favor boxes, place cards and ceremony programs.
But unless you are baking or cooking the favor, making the favor itself is trickier than making other wedding related details. For this reason, we’ve rustled up a few themed soap favors that are cute, clever and pair well with different wedding themes, including one for a beach or seaside wedding, a garden wedding and a vintage French inspired wedding:
Beach Themed Wedding Favor
Beach-themed favors can look a little kitsch, but this one is just plain adorable. Two French-milled white soaps shaped like a star fish and a sea urchin sit atop a bed of mini seashells, all nestled within an uber-cute beach inspired box. Each beachy favor box comes adorned with one of twelve metal wedding charms and a tag with the couple’s name and date of the wedding. Cohesive, theme-friendly and also a steal at under $4 per favor.
Garden Themed Wedding Favor
Garden weddings are the epitome of Spring and Summer – light, airy and full of beautiful flowers. Honor the natural, outdoorsy feel of a garden wedding in style with these gorgeous boxed honey bee lotion bars (seen at top). Not only is the packaging to die for, but the soap (made from beeswax, jojoba oil, shea butter and other top spa-quality ingredients) comes in a lovely keepsake tin. The only downside to this favor is the higher cost, but if you love it you can always use it as part of your bridesmaid gifts instead.
French Themed Wedding Favors
Give your guests a beautiful luxury that fits in perfectly with your French themed fete – rose scented French Pre de Provence square soaps. They come simply packaged in a clear box with your choice of ribbon and a personalized label. Did we mention they’re also a steal at under $3.50 per favor? Ooh, la la!
