If you’re planning a wedding, maybe you are looking for a theme that expresses your own unique style, instead of the boring white wedding that people typically plan. A 1920s style wedding could be just the fit for you. For an idea of the romance in that era, just think of Bonnie and Clyde. In this article, I am going to give you some ideas for wedding favors which embody the themes of this era.
For all of these favors, I suggest that you place them around a large bouquet of flowers. Bouquets in this era were generally very large and in addition to flowers, you might even want to incorporate ostrich or peacock feathers.
To make everyone be a part of the theme, you can give favors which your wedding guests can wear during the reception. For the women, you can pick out paper fans in the colors that you are using for your wedding. Add some pearl beaded necklaces for them to wear, and they will really fit the part. For men, you can give them black fedoras to wear. All three of these items are easy to find at any party store such as Party City or online party sites such as Shindigz.com.
Another great idea is to create a CD of songs from the 1920s era. You can include a lot of jazz favorites like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Bessie Smith. Perhaps Frank Sinatra is one of your favorites, he has plenty of love songs to choose from. On the cover, put your pictures and the date of your wedding. This is one of the easiest favors you can make by purchasing recordable CDs and using computer software to burn the songs onto it. You could also use your computer to make the covers and labels for the CDs.
One of my favorite ideas for 1920s wedding favors is personalized decks of playing cards. CandlesandSuch.com features a really cute set that says “Two of a Kind” on it. These are fitting for the theme of the time period in which gambling, clubbing, and dancing were the most popular things to do in free time.
Candles are also very popular wedding favors no matter what theme is used. For a 1920s wedding, I suggest the type of candles which come in things like martini glasses. Another cool candle that I found on CandlesandSuch.com are the Matrimonial Martini Mini Olive Candles (you can see these at http://www.candlesandsuch.com/matrimonial-martini-mini-olive-candles-8952.html.) They are very cute and would make great wedding favors as they can be personalized also.
There are many great ideas for 1920s wedding favors and these are just a few. This theme is something you can really personalize to your tastes because there are so many different things to choose from. Just remember to add your own names and the wedding date to the favors so your guests will forever remember your special day.
