So this is the penultimate post in our Inspired Series! It has been fun searching the web for ways to incorporate a fashion trend into a wedding design.

The topic for today is one of my favorite items in a wedding, the favor, the thank you for coming present that you give your guests at the end of the night.  Personally, I think the favor often gets pushed to the side or worse becomes regulated to the mass produced, no personality favors that line the aisles of Walmart and Michaels.  While these are often fine, I think all weddings deserve a personalized touch.  Take that plain box and add something that captures the essence of you and your mate and the vows that you have just taken.  Even more important, make it something that your guest will actually use! I’m sorry, but I do not want matches or a bottle of bubbles!

There are a number of ways to incorporate a floral print in the favor. A floral print can be found in paper and fabric so anything can be wrapped in either of these options.  Since I am loving the red and teal cherry blossom print, these cookie favors done by Meaghan of The Decorated Cookie really caught my eye!

It even includes the hand painted cookies that were featured on the dessert buffet, so the favor could be combined with a cookie bar where guests can take home a few cookies.  I also mentioned in the last post that I spotted some other favor options on that dessert table.

The mini mason jars covered with fabric which can be filled with jelly, candy, or even wax to make a candle.  In addition, the floral bags  and cute mini boxes could be filled with candy or flower seeds for a great favor or used to fill goodies from a sweets table.

The options are endless for favors that incorporate the lovely floral print.  Do you have any other suggestions? How do you feel about favors that seem too generic?

Stay tuned for our last post on this Inspired Series and the beginning of our next series, From Inspiration to Inspired: A Rustic Elegant Wedding!
