How to choose favours for weddings

Many brides getting married for the first time (and of course we hope the only time!), may not have heard of wedding favours before they decide to get married or indeed even how to choose favours for weddings!

This is where we here at Sweet Heaven can help.  One of the first priorities for brides is deciding what type of wedding they want, what will suit them and of course most importantly what their wedding budget will be.  While the majority of brides and grooms still get married in the UK, getting married abroad is becoming increasingly popular.  Once this has been decided, the next big decision is the wedding theme as of course until you have decided on a colour theme nothing can be bought as all brides know well in advance colour co-ordination is where it all begins and ends.

Once you have decided your colour theme you can then tie in all of the wedding accessories you have chosen to include in your wedding arrangements, flowers, stationey and breakfast table arrangements to name but a few.  Following the actual wedding and your guests marvelling at your wedding dress and bridal party outfits, the next big thing your guests will walk into is the reception and the breakfast tables which will most probably involve flowers and favours.

How to choose favours for weddings will depend on your chosen colour scheme and of course any hot new seasonal colours for the year of your wedding.  Pink, cerise, purple, silver and gold wedding favours never go out of fashion and are classed as traditional wedding favours.  This is where Sweet Heaven can guide you as we have all of the traditional favours in both sweets and chocolates, together with the new colours of the season for instance navy chocolate wedding favours are very popular at the moment for weddings.  Whatever your choice from traditional, to new to daring bold colours visit www.sweetheaven-online.co.uk for ideas and colour schemes, together with competitive prices.
