I would like to introduce *Wedding Wednesdays* to my blog for a while, in which I will feature real weddings, tips, and inspirational ideas to many of you brides-to-be.

Every wedding should have a little favor that allows the guests to take a little piece of the celebration home.  However, why not dress up your pretty tables with your favors as centerpieces as well.  Below is a preview of some pretty DIY table favor ideas:

Candy Favors

Create a candy wrap out of a sheet of crepe paper in the color scheme of your wedding
and fill it up with white Jordan Almonds.
Dress it up with a pretty monogram label or the Bride & Groom's name,

Order clear boxes and fill them with sweets that match your wedding color scheme.  Then wrap around a strip of paper in the color of your choice (scrapbook paper works wonders!), along with a tied pretty ribbon.

Get a cone shaped styrofoam and wrap a pretty satin ribbon around it.  Then order lollipops or rock candy that match your wedding colors and poke them into the styrofoam.  You can even personalize these lollipops or rock candy with a printable wedding tag designed customly by Kroma Design Studio Parties & Events {we can also create a similar pendant banner as shown in the photo above}.

Floral Favors

Find scrapbook sheets in the color of choice to create simple cones that you can fill with your favorite flowers, along with pretty printable tags customly designed by Kroma Design Studio.
Place these flowers in cylinder or square/cube shaped vases.  Add an elegant touch to your vase by adding ribbon and (or) a bow.

Purchase votive candles and fill it with Jordan Almonds 
(the photo above shows actual flower bulbs filled in water). 
Create a flower out of paper to place on top or simply purchase pretty artificial flowers.

Chocolate Favors

  
Choose your favorite chocolate bar, from Ghirardelli to Lindt and many more.
A personal favorite of mine since it's quick and affordable to make.
Simply purchase your bars (it's great if you choose the ones wrapped in silver or gold foil), since all you have to do is order a customized printable label from Kroma Design Studio that you can glue right on and add ribbon towards.  It's that easy!

Boxed Favors

Purchase these little white boxes and fill them with your favorite treats and surprises.
Decor them with a printable label that may be customly designed by Kroma Design Studio and a pretty satin ribbon that matches your wedding scheme.

These adorable little white boxes with tissue puff, are made by the Wilton brand and may be used to hold any small goody that you have in mind.
