These types of favors will both coordinate with your theme of a beach wedding, and they will be a special reminder for your guests of the wonderful location at which you had your wedding. There are a variety of beach themed wedding favors from which you can choose.

One great option is to give out beach themed picture frames. Many of these types of frames are covered in decorations that look like seashells and sand. This type of favor is very useful. Family members who wish to display pictures of your wedding in their homes could actually use the frame for one of your pictures. Other guests could use the frame to display a picture from their own special occasion such as a beach vacation they went on.

Another idea is to give your guests scented soap. Look for soaps in the shape of seashells to coordinate with your beach theme. Once they take them home, these fancy soaps will look lovely in their bathrooms.
Candles are another choice of favors you could have. Candles that come in holders that are the shape of sailboats or starfish would work wonderfully.

You could also have favors that can be used during your wedding. If you give out folding fans, your guests could use them if they get warm sitting outside. Personalized frisbees make for a fun gift at more casual weddings where your guests could play with them on the beach.

Other items that you could give to your guests include key rings and bookmarks that have decorations that look like either seashells, sailboats, or maybe even palm trees. For those guests who drink, you could choose wine stopper wedding favors. You can find beach themed ones that are designed with a dolphin, seashell, or boat figurine on them.

Personalized playing cards with your names and wedding date are another choice. You could have a seashell drawing decorating the cards. Guests who have traveled from out of town may enjoy playing games with them when they are back in their hotel rooms.

There are many beach themed wedding favors from which you can choose. Deciding what type to give out is simply a matter of finding ones that both appeal to you, and finding ones that your wedding guests will enjoy.

Wedding Candle Favors

Many couples choose to give candles as their wedding favors. Perhaps this is because their choice with regard to shape, size, scent, color and personalization is so large, enabling them to choose the perfect wedding candle favor - one that reflects their feelings and personality.

photo credit: etsy.com
Things to consider when giving candle favor :
Personalization Options:  Although the vast majority of these favors are not personalized - by doing a bit of research you can find some really fabulous personalized options. This includes anywhere from a monogram to favors that allow you a short message. Some even have images to choose from (wedding doves, a religious symbol, champagne glasses, etc.) The personalization is on the candle container (whether a votive or travel tin) - not the candle itself.

photo credit: tumblr.com
 Elegant or Fun: This depends on the personality of the couple. Some prefer a very elegant look while others want to put a smile on their guests face (think martini glass shaped candles, golf ball shaped candles, etc.)

Color and Scent: Some couples choose a wedding candle favor in a color that compliments their wedding color scheme. These mostly are votive candles which typically come in a variety of colors. You can purchase the votives plain or in a container. Hand poured in a glass votive (which is reusable) is a nice touch.
Scent, like color, is a personal taste and can go a long way in making your favor uniquely yours. Of course, unscented is also an option.

Like your wedding - you want your wedding favor to be a reflection of your personal taste. Choosing candle favors as your party favor enables you to do just that.

If you are using customizable wedding jars for beverage holders then they automatically serve the function of durable and secure beverage holders, with thick glass to keep a drink insulated and a stylish southern throwback design. However, if you print or engrave a personal message on the jar like the date of your wedding or a heartfelt thank you then these jars can also serve the function of a thoughtful wedding favor.

The actual arrangement is up to your creative vision, but the jars can be enhanced with a custom printed message or image to accompany the flowers. A third use of mason glass jars is as lighting.
