When picking wedding shoes to match the bridal gown, you just need to please yourself. However, this couldn’t be further from the case when it comes to wedding favours. You need to pick something that will please your guests while still reflecting your style. This can be tricky. Fortunately, most individuals like candles and will utilize them someday. That is why a good number of couples take this route. Ideally, there are numerous ways to turn them into unique favours for your big day. That being said, here are some incredible ideas for personalised wedding candles.
These create appealing wedding favour, particularly if they can be hung at the banquet above the tables. The indirect lighting is charming and creates a unique and attractive setting. You can have guests pick a lantern each at the entrance, have them go back to their table, where they will see a message telling them to hang the mini-lanterns, thus lighting up the location. You can alternatively have the lanterns hang and lit already, with the message this time to take one home.
This is a pretty simple idea to implement, which is also inexpensive. Purchase teacups for your guests put tea inside and put a message suggesting candlelit teatime. If you want to make it even more personalized, get second-hand teacups in varying styles.
If you are on the search for a heartfelt, charming gift, then look for a local candlemaker to come up with distinct candles, particularly for you. Ask them to make them a bit different so that each candle shows a different personality. You can go a bit further by having appealing ceramic tiles engraved with your wedding date or message and have the candlemaker adhere them onto your candles.
Bottled Up Lights
If you are having a small wedding or are into do-it-yourself wedding favours, then you can make your own candle holders from empty beer or wine bottles. There are numerous DIY tutorials on YouTube you can use to make these. You do not need to start drinking heavily as you can easily get the bottles from your family and friends. Get rid of the labels, clean them and get a bit more creative by fitting a message into the bottles. Just ensure they will not catch fire.
Create Your Own Candle
If you are on the hunt for entertainment ideas for your big day, then you are going to love this one. Look for a candle artisan who can set-up a candle making stand at the reception. They can then show your guests how to create their own candles. This is a fun activity, particularly for children.
The 12-Candle Challenge
This is another fun idea for personalized wedding candles. For the next 12 months, give your guests something to do. Glue a small envelope to each tealight, with a suggestion for a task or activity that the guest should do that month. You’ll want to be creative with this one as it can be really fun. Tell your guest to call you out of the blue, feed a homeless person, make something from scratch, try out a restaurant you like, etc. The guests are bound to be excited to see what they will do next. Remember to number the envelopes 1-12 and put the tealights in a charming box or bag, with an explanation of the candle challenge.
