New Favors from Ann's Bridal Bargains

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.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who submitted wedding favor ideas for our Favor Challenge! We loved reading all of your ideas and were quite impressed with your creativity. It was tough, but we have narrowed it down to three winners that really inspired us.  We will be contacting you soon via email to notify you of your winnings!

Jen P – Autumn Apples

“We’re being married in the fall and I originally knew exactly what I wanted to do – fall-themed candy and/or caramel apples! That being said, I’ve been sort of scared away from it because it’s a bit of work to make sure they look great – I have perfected my technique, and done the taste test (my fav part!) but I was mostly concerned about packaging options, and how well they will keep during the reception. I thought that more people would do this for favors, but so far I haven’t seen any wedding sites selling a “kit” of any kind – maybe you guys should look into it!”


Shannon J – Sunflower Power

“We are getting married next July and our colors are sunbeam yellow and ivory. I want to go with a sunflower theme for the wedding but I am having a hard time finding favors for my theme. One idea that I had was to take wine glasses and fill them with yellow gel candle wax and cover with a sunflower shaped label with our names and wedding date. The label is the hardest part of this task.”


Sara P – Jammin’ Favors

“Our wedding theme/colors are champagne and lavender! I had the idea to buy Mason Jars and fill them with grapes and blueberries (just for decoration) and wrap champagne ribbon around the top. Then find a good recipe for homemade grape and blueberry jams and make labels for the tops of the jars. Our wedding is in March and I can remember as a child going to my grandparents’ house in the winter time and there basement being filled with all different types of fruits, vegetables and jams canned in Mason Jars. So it seemed very fitting to tie an old family tradition into our wedding.”


Ladies, our accessories expert and designer are working hard to find exactly what we need to fit your visions! We’ll post the final creations in early July, on the same day they’ll be available for purchase at Ann’sBridalBargains.com!
