Our Favorite Fillers

1. Chocolate, obviously!

Fun Idea: Check out www.mymms.com. Not only can you choose your wedding colors, you can have them personalized with your choice of wording and even photos! Visit their Ideas on a Budget page for stretching your dollars.

2. Hard Candy

Fun Idea: Choose a hard candy that fits your wedding theme or colors and personalize the favor box (or a favor card) with a custom verse like “This love is red hot!” or “Mint to be together.”

3. Potpourri

Fun Idea: Fill favor boxes, organza bags or netting circles with potpourri to create scented sachet wedding favors. Potpourri is affordable, and a few pounds will go a long way! We suggest Good Hope Potpourri for great variety and prices.

4. Of the Earth

Fun Idea: Mimic a bird’s nest with fake moss and chocolate eggs for a woodsy feel. For beach weddings, consider filling favor boxes with sand and seashells. Try agates and polished stones for a lakeside wedding.

5. Seeds

Fun Idea: Fill favor boxes with birdseed, flower seeds or plant seeds, and guests will enjoy your wedding favor in their very own backyard day after day.

So many uses for such a simple item! Wedding favor labels and personalized seals are an excellent, inexpensive option for adding a personal touch throughout your wedding. We’ve listed our top 25 ideas just for you!

1. Use this trick on clear glass.
Personalize clear glass votive holders or vases with clear, personalized seals and put one seal on each item.


2. Give gifts an extra loving touch.
Wedding favor labels are a great way to dress up bridal party gifts. Add them to the front of attendant bags or as the finishing touch on gift-wrap.


3. Work with contrasting colors.
Brightly colored seals against dark favor boxes create a dramatic look. Place the seal left or right of center for contemporary flair.


4. Keep favors simple.
Clear favor bags are so versatile, and wedding favor labels make them even easier to use. Just fold the bag over once and wrap the seal around the folded edge.


5. Let the treat do the talking!
With clear favor containers like these favor boxes, all you need is a stylish favor label to add some character to each one.


6. Highlight your wedding colors.
Favor labels often come with a choice of imprint color, which means you can create a truly coordinated look with matching satin ribbon. Of course, we went one step further and used matching colored jellybeans!


7. Wrap up your favorite candy.
Make candy into some pretty sweet favors by adding a favor label to each piece. It’s easy, inexpensive and guests will love such a cute, tasty favor.


8. Get a modern look.
Pulling off a modern look doesn’t have to be difficult. Take these plain glass votives, for instance. A sleek, square favor label in black becomes a striking accent that adds modern flair to a classic favor idea.


9. Be practical AND fashionable.
Seal favor boxes while adding a touch of personalized fashion.


10. Decorate piece by piece.
Add round personalized seals to wrapped candies and sprinkle the candy along wedding reception tables or add to favor bags.


11. Make tasty treats even sweeter.
Wedding favor labels or personalized seals make lollipop favors even more fun!


12. Get creative.
Place fruit or other delicious things inside shot glasses and adorn with favor labels for a refreshing favor guests can keep long after the wedding.


13. Give favors a classic look.
Black and white favor labels will add a classic touch of style to any wedding favor. The swirl design shown here is simply perfect getting that classic look.


14. Always order extra.
Order extra wedding favor labels to use after the wedding. Use them to seal the first batch of holiday cards you send out as husband and wife!


15. Show your appreciation with a personal touch.
Find nice envelopes to use as gratuity envelopes and seal them with your favor labels. Recipients will appreciate the gift and the thoughtful detail.


16. Quench some thirst.
Warm summer weddings and destination weddings are the perfect venues for water bottle favors. Buy water bottles in bulk for the cheapest price, tear off the labels and replace with your favor labels. How clever!


17. Realize their true purpose.
We’ve given you lots of ideas for how to use wedding favor labels and personalized seals — all but their original purpose! Seal your wedding invitation envelopes for an impressive finishing touch to your ensemble.


18. Play matchmaker.
Match the color of your favor labels with colorful satin ribbon and add to favor boxes or bags for a beautiful wedding favor that showcases your wedding colors.


19. Let your refined taste shine.
Seals personalized with a single initial in script font are sophisticated and elegant. Add to ecru favor bags or favor boxes for a look that’s truly elegant.


20. Try this delicious idea.
Most chocolates come wrapped in nice packaging, which means all you need are favor labels in a coordinating color for personalized wedding favors that are delish!


21. Pass on the napkin rings.
Rectangular favor labels are great alternatives to napkin rings. They’re MUCH less expensive and they coordinate beautifully.


22. Treat them to a bucket o’ goodies!
Many couples are opting to create travel baskets or bags for guests attending their destination wedding. Use favor labels or seals to dress up the goodies you put inside.


23. Stay cool.
Put one label on each bottle, and guests are sure to stay cool with your refreshing beverage favors.


24. Make it special.
Secure invitations or wedding programs with favor labels or personalized seals. We love this idea because it feels like you’re opening something extra special!


25. Go from plain to pretty.
It’s amazing what you can do with ribbon, especially when topped off with a cute seal. We wrapped a rectangular glass dish with lilac satin ribbon and placed a seal over top for an adorable table centerpiece.

Check out these fall wedding favor ideas designed to be easy, attractive and inexpensive. We’ve divided them up into 6 different looks. Pick your favorite!


Initials and Heart Favor Labels – We’ve combined your love for nature with your love for each other all in one simple favor label, which you can use to dress up a variety of things at your wedding. Use them on favor bags (as shown), as the finishing touch to gifts or placed on wedding programs.



Flourish Favor Labels – Flourishes and swirls are a huge trend right now, which means our trendy brides on a budget should jump all over flourish favor labels. They’re inexpensive, easy to use and create a stylish accent on everything from candy to water bottles.



Mocha Matches – Matches are a traditional favor that fit pretty much any style of wedding, but they’re also great for combining with other favors. Tie personalized wedding matches to votive candles for a charming favor. Or drop them in a clear favor bag with a marshmallow, chocolate and a graham cracker, and you’ve got an adorable s’more kit wedding favor!



Dotted Border Favor Labels – Kiwi is a hot color for fall. It’s a naturally vibrant color that fits in perfectly with an autumn palette. Add a kick of kiwi to everything from wedding favors to bouquet stems with dotted border favor labels in the eye-catching color.



Brown Damask Favor Boxes – If your fall wedding is leaning more toward sophisticated and refined, damask favor boxes are a beautiful option. Fill with treats that coordinate with your accent colors — an impressive detail that won’t go unnoticed.



Mocha Favor Boxes – Autumn weddings rely on natural beauty. Fill mocha favor boxes with nature-inspired treats for a favor that’s naturally cute! Try these ideas: “bee” unique with chocolate-covered honeycomb; rock the party with rock candy; show your earthy side with gummy worms; create a buzz with chocolate-covered coffee beans.

Wedding Planning Checklist: Section 3: Part 6


What you need for a Classic Bridal Shower:

The classic bridal shower is timeless. It works for any bride and we’re certain you’ll be able to pull off a beautiful party for a budget-friendly price.


Start by having guests sign in with the Umbrella Bridal Shower Guest Book. Guest books make great keepsakes for the bride. Transform some of the guest book pages into pre-made scrapbook pages for the bride to add photos and other memorabilia from the shower.


Continue the theme with Personalized Napkins featuring the Umbrella Shower design or Bridal Shower design. (Estimate two napkins per guest.)


Small White Favor Boxes make excellent favors when personalized with the same design as featured on your napkins. Fill them with your choice of treats.


Check out Netting for Favors and fill the netting circles with Scented Lavender Blossoms for a cute air freshener favor.



What you need for a “Sweet Love” Bridal Shower:

We love this theme because it’s creative, fun and simple. You can add extra details for a more elaborate theme or just keep it easy. Either way, it will be a fabulous bridal shower.


Start by having guests sign in with the White Guest Book. Again, guest books make great keepsakes for the bride, especially with pre-made scrapbooked pages.


Continue the theme with Personalized Napkins featuring the Intertwined Hearts design or Love/Heart design. (Estimate two napkins per guest.) $20 per 100.


Heart-Shaped Favor Boxes are perfect “Sweet Love” favors when personalized with the same design as featured on your napkins and filled with treats.


Cookie Cutter Favors are also a great idea. You can create recipe cards printed with favorite cookie recipes and attach them to the cookie cutters (or check out our professionally printed Cookie Cutter Cards).


Place some cheap glass jars from your local dollar store along the tables, and fill them with Wedding Candy Hearts for a sweet centerpiece and even sweeter treat.
