In the 21st century, everything is about the functional, sustainable and practical. Everything. And that includes your wedding--you want things that last as long as your marriage does and everyone wants their marriage to last till death do them apart. The love and the happiness, the laughs, smiles, hugs and kisses-everything. Why not start of with the tiny things that bring the wedding together and create lasting impressions to not only the wedding couple but to the guests, family and friends? Wedding favors are exactly the tiny little things that are actually important in a wedding and tells the person looking at it that you, as the wedding co-organizer (together with the wedding planner of course) took all that effort into the tiniest of details, making sure that everything is perfect for the big day and that you want your guest to appreciate each and every detail taken into account. Here's an idea for wedding favors. You can make really unique custom glassware for your wedding favors.
Glassware as wedding favors makes a unique statement. They are practical and functional as they serve as drinking utensils as well as home décor and they are sustainable meaning that they last a lifetime-that is if it isn't broken. You also care more for the environment as glassware doesn't need a whole load of forests to be cut down for paper if you make paper bags as your wedding favor. Glassware, combined with the perfect decorating items such as colored paper, glitter, ribbons and sweet treats make for unique custom glassware for your wedding favors.
What you can do with glassware is add a little bit of imagination and a sprinkle of creativity and you have something that is personalized, unique and special. Say for instance if you were to use a custom wine glass as your wedding favor. In each table, arrange the wine glasses according to the table seating and tie ribbons that are embroidered with the date of the wedding as well as the wedding couple's name to the stem of the wine glass. Apart from including embroidered ribbons, you can also etch the glassware with the names of the newly weds as well as the wedding date. To add a little extra something, include in a design or the wedding logo or emblem that was used for the wedding invitations, church pamphlets and other paraphernalia. By having this consistent emblem present in everything that was used for the wedding, it creates a lasting impression to both the wedding couple as well as the guests.
Use the custom glassware to fill in small candies. Candies included into sheer organza cloth bags are very chic these days compared to the normal fruit cake in a box wedding favors. With your custom made glassware set at the table, place a cloth bag of candy into each glass. Your guests can have a treat to eat as well as a glass to drink while at the wedding reception.
Last but not least, customized glassware also makes for beautiful and elegant centerpieces. You can purchase glasses of any kind and use them as centerpieces. Filling each glass with tea light candles provide a simplistic centerpiece. Include in colored sand as the base and top it up with the tea light candles add a little chic to the décor. Accessorize this glassware with items from colored sand to marbles to shells and even colored confetti to match with your wedding theme. Now, glassware isn't just an item to hold drinks. It's much more than that.
