Beach FantasyAs a peninsula, Florida includes miles of coastline with beaches galore. Florida's famed resorts and beach destination spots are a treasure trove of ideas for your wedding favors. Incorporate any of the following items in miniature as decorative pieces for your wedding favors, or include images of any of these on candles or other favors:
- Beach umbrellas
- Silhouetted bikini beach-goers
- Tropical drinks/drink glasses
- Sun/sunshine emblems
- Fish (especially dolphins)
- White clouds in a clear blue sky
- Ocean colors: pale blue, blue/green, sand/beige, white (for whitecap waves), pink (for seashells)
Latin FlavorFlorida is influenced by the many islands geographically near it. This includes a heavy Spanish and Caribbean flavor. Look for vibrant, bright and exciting colors, ruffles on fabric, and sewn-on shells or other accents. Add a dash of spice to your wedding favors with some of these images:
- Figures in flouncy, very colorful dress
- Dancing figures
- Musical notes
- Colorful, fruity drinks
- Fruits, especially tropical fruits
- Tropical flowers
- Bright, festive colors
Putting it All TogetherAny of these ideas can be part of your Florida wedding favors. Choose candles, cheese spreader sets, mini decorative centerpieces, photo frames or mini wall hangings with Florida images like the ones above. You can also purchase candy wrapped in the bright colors of the Sunshine State, or wrap virtually any wedding flavor in ocean- or Latin-colored packaging.
If you live in Florida, your local bridal shop will almost certainly be able to show you wedding favors you'll love. However, if you live somewhere outside the Sunshine State, don't despair. Ordering favors online is the choice of many couples planning a Florida destination wedding.
